Day 60: National Procrastination Week

4 03 2010

I’d planned to get back into working out this week and start cooking dinner at home instead of going out every night, but then I discovered it’s National Procrastination Week. I’ll start next week.

But today’s post celebrates 60 days of this blog. Let’s take a look back and see what I’ve accomplished in the first 60 days, shall we?

— I lost 3 pounds.
— I regained those 3 pounds. Then lost them again. Then regained. Then . . . yeah. I’m getting nowhere fast.
— I started physical therapy for a rotator cuff tear and tendonitis.
— Because of said rotator cuff issue, I’ve been told by my therapist to temporarily stop cycling, doing kettlebells, playing pool, carrying my camera equipment or lifting anything else with that arm.

So the first 60 days didn’t turn out even close to the way I had expected.

But I’ve discovered a lot of good cycling information through other blogs I enjoy visiting. I’ve also met a number of interesting cycling folks through your blogs and by your comments left here on my blog. I appreciate everyone’s visits, feedback and encouragement. I look forward to hearing more from you in the upcoming months.

Today’s starting weight: 151

Food journal:

— Organic whole wheat english muffin with Nutella = 294 cal.

— Low fat PB&J on whole wheat = 398
— Small bag Rold Gold pretzels = 230
— Iced tea = 0

— Salad with ranch dressing = 163
— Soft pretzel = 483
— Iced tea = 0

— Fat free chocolate pudding cup = 60

Thanks for visiting. I’m promising myself (and you) that the next 60 days will be more eventful and will get me closer to my goals. See you tomorrow.

Hi Alice! I finally got time on “my” laptop to check out your Blog. It’s awesome!! I admire your consistency and the references to other articles and news items. I don’t like that your hard work in PT hasn’t earned you more time in the saddle of your bike,swinging a kb or toting camera gear.
Had to laugh at the Bicycling Magazine cover post…well, it is about cycling after all. A set of allen wrenches or a tire gauge just doesn’t communicate the thrill of rolling tires and a happy face under the latest helmet style.

Hi Katie! Thanks for visiting! Glad you like the blog. I’ve had fun doing it.
Yes, it does suck that PT is keeping me from riding and kb’s right now. I’m really getting frustrated, but hopefully I’ll be doing it all again soon. I should find out more next week as to whether or not they recommend surgery. Keeping my fingers crossed that I don’t.
Good point about the magazine covers. I guess bike tools aren’t as interesting to look at as happy well-built muscular people on bikes.
Hope you’re doing well. Once the weather (and my shoulder) improves, you and Carrick and I should go for a bike ride.
Take care and keep in touch!
