My Journey into a new and Healthier lifestyle

Monthly Archives: March 2013

Wow, it has been one year to the day that I got my Katrina! I remember the first time I road her, it felt so weird and I was worried that I made a bad choice to try this. As you have seen by reading this blog, it has been a struggle, but I have continued to triumph!

This year, my goal is to hit 500 miles on my dear Katrina. I use to think, before I got her, that I was simply to fat to exercise! I am here to tell you I was wrong! You are always able to do something, it is just a matter if it is something your willing to do. The best choice I have made in this journey was to take the first step, and I hope that I might inspire a few of you to do the same.
Here we are, 1 year later(thanks to Mrs. BBB for taking the photos for me!)

Tomorrow is a very important day for me, I won’t say why just yet though. I would keep your eyes peeled tomorrow night for an update to this blog(best way to do that is to become a follower).

In other news, had an amazing weekend! I went to my favorite conventions, the Midwest gaming classic! I hung out with my best friend, Mr. H and we both had a blast. It was a great feeling to be able to not be out of breath every few feet, even going up stairs. It was nice to fit in some games that I would not of last year.

Food wise I made a good plan the first day, and did pretty well sticking to it. Day two I didn’t plan as well but still did ok. My wife and son came with me this year, though the shopped most of the time. For a little while though I got to play some fun games with him, even for being just a bit over 2 he had a blast. They even had fix it Felix jr. and he loved seeing the characters.

I also saw my godson Lil Mr. H and while I didn’t get as much time as I would have liked it is amazing to see how much he has grown and watch him play wi Lil 3B.

Ok wrapping this up, remember to follow me, and check back tomorrow night!


So I have been working hard on my c25k program, did week 3 day 1 last night. The last few times though I have been getting severe pain, so bad that I am limping badly as I get off the machine. Turns its my IT band, and I may be over doing it. Right now I am training every other day, and I am wondering if that was a good idea. The problem with me is that I get that pain, and when most people would stop I don’t.

So what does this mean for the tripe B? It means I have to be smarter with my work outs! The nice part is spring might be here soon and I can hit the road with my dear Katrina. Ahh how I miss the feeling, those 2 short rides made me miss it even more.

Also, I think next Wednesday you should keep an eye on this blog for a special update!

Was getting anxious about my WI tonight. so since the weather was cold but not to bad I went for a ride. Did 2 miles in about 14 minuets, and wore my heart rate monitor with an average of 132 with a max of 147.

I really love my HRM, it allows me to really gauge my workouts. I have a polar ft7 black with a red stripe, and I must say It looks pretty sexy when I wear it! So my goal this year is to make it to the M(worlds largest M) which will be a pretty tough ride of about 20 miles round trip I think. Who thinks I can do it by this fall?

Have a great day,and keep on pedaling!

So WI last week went really well, I lost 7 pounds! I told you that gain would be motivating! I also earned 40 activity points,which has been a long term goal of mine. This week however, has not been looking very well, and makes me nervous.

I have still been working out, and even did my first “indoor” 5k(53 min.). I have been eating pretty well and it sure why the scale is showing me up about 5 pounds right now. Perhaps my body just hates me? I will be very honest, I find myself disgusting. I look in the mirror and I still see the big fat ass standing before me. When I don’t do well on WI, it makes me feel rather worthless, even though it is not rational. I am heading to the gym this afternoon, and hoping it helps for tomorrow’s WI.


Yesterday I got the itch really bad! No not THAT kind of itch, the itch to just do something different. The weather was warmer I think about 40ish so I decided to go biking. One thing I forgot is, while it was a bit warmer wind chill makes it a bunch colder! I did about 2.25 miles and could not even feel one of my fingers anymore. Wow though being down to 349 as opposed to over 400 makes a HUGE difference! I was able to do 2.25 in about 14 minutes, with 2.5 of that waiting to cross a street! I missed Katrina and really looking forward to being able to ride more!
