NROL4W - Stage 1 - Saturday - Tabata Sprints

I only ran sprints today - 78 calories.

I thought, after the fact, that I should change the weight in m heart rate monitor settings. It was accurate for the last time I cared, but not so much anymore. I got on the scale today. 137. That's back up to where I was after Christmas. I am out of control. Last night, I ate over a quart of ice cream. I hated myself and at the same time, just didn't care.

Before lunch, we rode our bikes to the park and played tennis. That was fun. After dinner, I went out for another bike ride, this time by myself. I only went a short distance (just over 3 miles in 25 minutes) but I wore my heart rate monitor (157 calories). I have a hard time getting my heart rate up without killing my legs. And of course, I'm still "learning" how to ride a bike. I went out with my freaking helmet on backwards tonight, for crying out loud! I'm still very wobbly, but I'm glad my neighborhood isn't all that busy. There are a few bike lanes around but I still get nervous. I'm going to try to go out first thing in the morning for another few miles. I'll shoot for 5. It would be nice if I could do it every day, but I don't have time to lift AND bike in the morning, especially when I don't know whether or not I'll be called in to work at the last minute. I'm hoping, once school is out for summer, there will be a lot of time for biking. My son is just so slow LOL

That's one of my problems with biking as an exercise. It really doesn't get your hr up unless you are climbing hills and stuff. But for fun it's great! Better than sitting on the couch and watching tv.

I have been catching up on my reviews for my other blog Dark Novels and I am going to try to keep that up at least until I run out of things to review. I have been thinking of creating a fictional character and telling his or her story each Friday or something. I will have some time to think about that while we are driving to Florida from Ohio and then back again.On that note I am going to be able to write posts for that blog and schedule their posting dates but I may not have internet access while I am in Florida so I may be absent from this blog from May 13-21 or so.
