85kg before 01/26/09

Postby Freddy » Mon Jan 12, 2009 4:58 pm

Goal? simple... To weigh 85kg before Monday the 26th of January 2009.

How? Simple as well.
1) Shred km's on the bike. Tomorrow the weather will be a bit better, so cycling season is getting an early start this year.
2) Do some ab crunches. By some I mean around 50 each day, in one session. More muscles mean more fat loss.

I noticed today I've got a case of the flue though. Bit of diarrea and funky feeling in my stomach. I'll be fine, but I'm a bit wondering how I'll turn out by the 26th this way.

Diarrhoea almost certainly results in weight loss... but of course you put it back on when your eating returns to normal.

Hope you're feeling better soon and back on track. You're certainly looking like you'll achieve your goal at this point in time.
Cheers,
Kate

Feeling much better today. Might still have some flue symptoms though. I'll just make sure I drink enough, should help quite a bit :)

It's a flue alright. I just threw out my entire diner. Ah well... That's not gonna cause any weight gain ;)

As you can see I gained 2kg in one day. Either the scale's off by far, or my body is handling the flue in a way nobody's ever seen before.... :shock:

Hang in there Freddy - I reckon you can reach your goal. Your body's out of sorts cos you're not well.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Hey Freddy, hang in there. It's possible that you've got a fever and your body is retaining water while you're sick.

It'll all fix itself up once the flu clears.

I'm not sure what it is.

Anyway, I weighed in at 87.9. I don't think I'll make win this challenge, but it was a nice try. Though, previous challenge was a failure as well. Maybe I'd just stick with losing weight and forget about challenges?

I'd love to hit the road on the bike again, but it's too windy. We have 5bft right now, which doesn't even bring me halfway to work. This wednesday will be a nice day though, and I have an early shift. Hop on the bike at 5:15AM and arrive at work at 6:30AM to start working at 7:00AM. It's a nice deal :)
Besides, I should have back wind wednesday afternoon, which should take me home in about 50 minutes, which is actually a record :D
