Here we are already one week into the biggest winner challenge. Only 9 more to go. The good news is I was pretty clean and on target with my eating over the last week. The really good news is that I weigned in at 425 lbs yesterday which means I've lost 10 lbs. or 2.29% of my starting body weight. Definitely on track to hit my goal of losing 10% over the course of this challenge.
The better news is I quit making excuses and got my butt out of bed this morning at 4:00 am and rode 8 miles. Its been a long time since I actually rode before work. It was a bit cooler than I had anticipated at 52 degrees, but I enjoyed it. Was it a struggle - you bet! Will I do it again - Yep. I will be back out there at 4:00 tomorrow morning.
Even though I struggled I still was able to maintain a 12.4 mph average speed. Looking back to a year ago, I was only able to go 6 miles and average 12.1. So I'm not doing bad at all. :)
