Maybe YOU should dust off the old bike!

As part of the Post-Thanksgiving Challenge – Reform, I decided I needed to do something DRASTIC to drop a few more pounds before the end of 2011.

Luckily, where I live in Florida, we hit a cool snap this week, and while rooting thru the garage, looking for Christmas decorations, I saw MY BIKE!

“Aha”, I said to myself, “This is what I need to jump up my metabolism”.

So here’s what I have been doing and have lost 4 pounds already  (and I am
much older than YOU)!

Getting up Earlier:    7:30 AM

Eat a handful of almonds and drink a big glass of water

Take the 2 beagles for a 1 – 2 miles walk.

      Feed the dogs – Drink a big glass of raw homemade juice.

Get out on the bike –

    Rode 2 miles the first day
    Rode 4.2 miles the second day
    Rode 3.4 miles today

Now I’m home at 8:45 AM, eating a big bowl of:

  Oatmeal with raw coconut, dried cranberries & walnuts with
   1 TBSP of almond butter in it.

Lunch:    FRUIT BOWL with another 8 almonds

Dinner – is EARLY – right at 5:30 –
   Whole Wheat Rotini with Broccoli, Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Fresh Basil

It’s working for me and my whole body feels energized. Yoga before bed is optional!

Maybe YOU should take out the old bicycle……

    OK, Caroline. I weighed in at 252 today. My ultimate goal is 210. What’s our time frame? Between now and New Years? How much are you losing by then? What percentage is that (so I can figure out my equivalent)?

    Thanks for starting this. I think it’s the extra little motivation I need.
