In an effort to not feel like a fat sack of potatoes during skating training, I’ve implemented a diet and exercise plan (beyond just skating).
I’ve got my fitbit, a new Cannondale Synapse 5 (disc brakes, shimano 105s, etc!), a food diary, two gym memberships (that’s kind of overkill, but work pays for one of them), and some epic motivation.
I started this journey about a month or so ago. At weigh-in today, I realized I’ve gone from 169lbs down to 161.2. Pretty awesome. My goal weight is 145lbs (based on BMI, waist to hip ratios and a bit of other research), although once I begin building muscle, a higher goal weight might be more realistic. We’ll see.
Feeling great though. Off for a walk around Lake Merced with a friend. Last night was a 4 mile bike ride and 90 minutes of skating. Tomorrow is 60 minutes of skating and possibly a bike ride if I have time for it.
My boyfriend is out of town for a month, so I have to keep myself busy somehow, right? Why not be totally ripped by the time he returns, I say? :)
