So you may have seen me trying to get sponsors for the Charity Bike Ride next week. A lot of people at my work have sponsored me which is great and a fair few of my friends to but a lot of the 396 friends on Facebook haven’t still. I know its your choice and times are hard but it would help me a lot if you could donate even 50p which would mean that snack from the vending machine or not much else it’s not a lot but if all 396 people donated that much it would be £198 which would be awesome.
So on to more serious business this week I had my first weigh in. I’ve been holding off on this as I know I am losing weight from my clothes and from visual references i.e I can start to see my neck again and I can actually bend over and tie my shoes. Not massive things but things I took for granted before and which add a little motivation…so drum role please…1/2 a stone lost!! So that great news its nice and slow so I’m happy with it as I expected there to be a bit of swapping fat for muscle etc but I am pleased. I will be doing a body fat percentage test this week on Friday and will be watching that closely. I expect it will be near to 30% if I’m being realistic which still situates me in the obese class but going forward I can see this regime is working and I’m loving the cycling which is probably the biggest reason for the progress.
Cycling (Commuting); 61.85km
Wattbike Session 10km
Gym Sessions x 2 - Crosstraining for 10minutes and various weights.
So have a good week guys and expect a substantial blog next week (hopefully with some video) regarding the charity bike ride!!
