    HI, had a good day yesterday. Discovered the Indoor Rower and rowed for 25 mins yesterday and 20 minutes on reclining bike. Feet good today, pity about the cramp in the night though!!

    Hi all, I've had a big weekend!
    Pizza on friday night (but I had done a decent bike ride to offset it)
    Last night I went to see my brother and sister in law playing with a mariachi band and the meals were huge! (again, had done a decent amount of training but I think I still went over)
    And today we had the left over pizza for lunch but I did manage to get the mrs out on a bike ride with me so I think I've saved myself with my goal calorie intake.

    I'm looking forward to tomorrow - get back to my normal routine!

    Have a great one everyone!

    Ugh! I'm having one of those days where I want to eat EVERYTHING. TWICE!

    Pretty sure it's anxiety/stress. My first big bike event of the season is next Sat, and the endless winter has kept me from training like I should/want/need. It's snowing again today!

    I'm trying to funnel the anxious energy into chores, but what I really want is a dozen donuts.

    Oh my goodness, I can so relate to those days when my inner ravenous monster comes out. It's not the case today thank goodness but I did have one very delicious donut the other day and I keep thinking about it. That experience will keep me going on donut fantasies for some time!

    Whats the bike event?
    Best of luck to you

    I got in my 14.5km/9 mi run this morning, feeling very pleased with myself :smiley:
    How is everyone else getting on?

    Good morning! I wish you all a nice start in the new week! Weather is crap here in the Czech Republic right now...but I'm about to go to the library and study there for the rest of the day anyway...and with all the rain and grey outside, I'm less tempted to go outside ;)

    Hi all! I had a busy weekend of mixed results. My first weekend watching my calories. The alcohol did me in! The dancing doesn't make up for it. But I did do a 3 mile run and I was decently ok with the food so I call it a win. Went to see Garth Brooks in concert last night. It was awesome. That was a workout for my lungs!

    Good morning, or afternoon

    Nice job with the running @sweetleilanimae

    its grey and overcast here in Toronto today too @schneizilla‌

    I'm trying to concentrate on doing some work at home but its not going so well so far, my concentration levels are down and all I feel like doing is eating a horse ...made out of chocolate.

    I have my dance class tonight which I am looking forward to at least. Bring on 7pm!

    Hey everyone!

    Just saw this thread going and I got excited.

    Case of the Mondays here at the firm, but at least I get to go to the gym after work with one of my coworkers. I think we're doing our usual 5-10 minutes of cardio (because she refuses to do more than that) and either abs and *kitten* or legs and abs. Not sure which yet. Then I'll be heading home to start my first day of classes. Woohoo!

    -- Stephanie

    P.S. Feel free to add me; I'm always looking for new fitness people to talk to :)

    Sounds like a fun weekend! I have to work to watch the alcohol too. It is way too easy for me to drink a glass of wine, which turns into a bottle of wine, which turns into bad food mistakes!

    @electriq‌ It's my first brevet of what I hope to be a full season. (Including passing through your town quickly) http://bicycletimesmag.com/beginners-guide-randonneuring/
    Hope you enjoyed your dance class.

    @Scudder76 Wow! That looks really cool. I want to do that! How did you train? I've always liked cycling but the exclusive feeling radiating off road cycling clubs put me off, this sounds much friendlier and I like endurance sport. Did you mean that you will be riding through Toronto?

    Dancing was awesome, always so much fun.

    I just got back from my morning run, felt like I was dragging myself along a bit today but now I feel great. Hope everyone has a good day :-)

    Glad everyones day is going well! I have been having a pretty good week. Watching calories, working out fun stuff. Has anyone ever tried Paddle Board Yoga? They are offer it at my University sometimes and I have always wanted to try it.

    Made it to the gym this morning! It is so hard when my alarm goes off at 5:15, but I did it and got in a light cardio workout (20 min. stationary bike and 15 min. arc trainer) and did circuit training. In about an hour I'll get to head outside for a nice long walk on my lunch break -- I try to get at least 2.5 miles. The weather is beautiful, so I'm looking forward to it. I hope everyone is enjoying the day.

    Everyone is doing great!
    Today was my cross-training exercise day. I did 15 minutes on a bike and my first ever try of 15 minutes rowing. I like the rowing! Wow, that works out my back and stomach more than I thought! Definitely will be doing that more often. It's way more fun than planks and crunches. haha

    So great to hear everyone's optimism!

    I cranked out a longer (but not long enough) bike ride today. It's still cold to be comfortable for too long; so hard to figure out the layers in these temps.

    @electriq I started riding seriously a few years ago with a 3 day AIDS ride. (Boston to New York), so my road riding has mostly been endurance based. I feel under-trained for Saturday's ride, a result of the late spring. (I'm not going to *kitten* about today's snow. I'm not. I refuse.) But I know I'll be able to slog through it. A lot of the distance riding is tactics/skill as much as training for fitness. In training for centuries (100 miles), they say to find your base, and add 10 miles every week. Then, if you can ride a century, a 200k brevet is an easy evolution.

    Yes, the longest ride I'm planning/hoping/wishing to do this season is a 1,000 kilometer lap of Lake Ontario, starting and ending outside of Rochester, NY. All in 3 days! (My best friend thinks I'm crazy, my boyfriend just doesn't get it, and I'm not telling my mother till it's over and done.)

    It's tough to find roadies that don't put off a 'too cool for school' vibe, I know. But don't give up. I'm sure there are a load of clubs there, and eventually you'll find the one you click with, and will help you grow.

    Hello, MFP friends! Today I have a long work day so, I've only been able to sneak in a mile walk during my lunch period. I am hoping to get out to the park this evening for a nice jog before doing some grocery shopping. I need to stock up on fruits and veggies in order to start my April weight loss challenge off right! Xx.

    Good morning from Massachusetts! I joined this group several months ago, but haven't been checking the forum. Love the idea of this thread, so joining in now. I'm pretty excited about the progress I've made (34 pounds since last August) - and have had some amazing help from a nutrition coach and now a trainer I work at the gym. The best thing that's happened so far was last week's check-in when the pound number did not go down, but the waist measurement did. Which means, I think, that I'm starting to regain some of the muscle I've lost.

    Today is my long workday and I'm planning to go use the spin room at the gym (classes don't meet when I can go until summer vacation) before going home.

    @Scudder76 - I did the Boston NY ride about 15 years ago. It was fun! Haven't been on my bike in recent years (long story) - miss it.
