...had a revelation today during my bike ride.
See, TV is educational...I learned something important from Biggest Loser last night.
While out and about this morning I was cruising along wondering how well I was working my body.
Then I actually concentrated on what I was doing.
Hardly making any effort and I was moving right along. I mean, I was still peddling and stuff, but it really wasn't hard at all. It was mostly forward momentum down a bit of a slope. No effort required.
Then something Jillian said last night popped into my head.
Something along the lines of how much do you want to reach your goal? You can't get to it if you don't work for it. The more you want it, the harder you will work. Etc Etc Etc
Bottom line, get your ass in gear, cos that's the only way you will get in shape and lose weight, yada yada yada
So next thing you know...the gear thingy when up a few notches and I kicked it.
And I felt so good after my ride. So tomorrow, I ride harder and go more and more each day.
Today, I was about at the end of my ride when I got this revelation, so I didn't work as hard as I should have. Not that I went all out either.
"Working harder" and "going all out" for me is most likey a leisurely ride for everyone else. I do have to be careful as I don't want to hurt myself - cos how can I work hard if I can't get up on the bike? Add to that a bad knee, and well, I do what I can. Get my heart rate up and get myself almost out of breath...then go a bit harder through it. Then take it down.
It's a start. Oh, and I'm coming for ya grandpa!!!
