Relaunch

Today is relaunch day.  I took advantage of the time change to get my butt out of bed and on the bike this morning.  After the ride I realized that I hadn't ridden in 33 days.  33 days.  How quickly we can fall out of the habit and let our old, bad habits take over.

My best guess is that in those 33 days, with the complete lack of exercise and the total poor eating, that I gained about 10 lbs.  Not a good thing at all.  Definitely moving in the wrong direction and its time to get my life back on course to a fitter, healthier me.

Towards that end I purchased a FitBit Ultra tracker to monitor just how active I really m on a daily basis.  I've actually had the tracker for 2 weeks now and have worn it every Day just to get a baseline reading of how inactive I truly am.  let's just say there isn't much place to go, other than up in the activity department.

My goal is to go back to weekly updates with my weight and activities for the week starting this coming Friday.  I'll be pulling numbers from my fitbit as well as listing how many miles I've traveled and how far to get to my revised goal of 1000 miles in 2012.
