Getting rid of all this excess tonnage (40 lbs so far!) is priority #1 for me right now. Diet will only take you so far; exercise must be added.
It’s too damn hot and I will not walk. Too much impact while I still have this much lard. Too hard on the knees and ankles, plus too much heat.
But I’ve always loved cycling—so yesterday I went to Austin and picked up this little beauty. I went to –a local bike shop- and priced them; the entry level bike I priced (and for which I was fitted) started at $439 plus tax; this one is the upgrade and is closer to $500. Maybe entry level for everybody else, but awfully rich for my blood!
Craigslist to the rescue. Vastly less than half price. Well cared-for. Used—so what? When I ride it out of the local bike shop it’s used….
So, I will be sitting less and riding more. Rode today (I can already feel the muscles starting to burn, what few there are of them—and I didn’t go very far. But, I can go further each time. Terry Hershey Park is right down the street from my house and offers great trails—no cars.
This may be my last post. I don’t think anybody reads them. If you want me to continue, leave me a comment below just letting me know somebody saw this.
