Bike Tour

Yesterday I participated in the North Shore Bike Tour. It was loads of fun. With all the spinning classes I have been taking and loving, I was super excited to actually bike outdoors.

We had a great time. You could either do 17.5 miles and take the bus back or you could turn around and ride back to do the entire 35 miles. I ended up doing 17.5 miles. I was disappointed in myself at first but then I realized that it was still amazing what I did and I know I couldn’t have done it just a few months ago.

I burned over 900 calories during the bike ride and I had a wonderful time. I have been very disappointed lately since I seemed to have gained a few pounds back over my birthday week. I am really frustrated with myself lately. I seem to just be going through the motions and not being as precise with my calorie counting. Excuses are unacceptable at this point since I still have over 30 pounds I want to lose. I know I can get there but I have shown myself that I still really need to focus on my calories at this point. In not doing so, I allow myself to make too many excuses. One day I know I will be ready to not count calories anymore but today is not that day.
