  1. So, the challenge. I'm bad. The weight last one I did was 167.4. The weight went as high as 168.6, and as low as 165.8. At least upward weight stopped. I think it's largely due to being able to control the lunch a little better. 1. Eating The calories seem fine to me according to MFP. The weight increase stopped at the moment. I still do a late night snacking. Like last night, I played tennis from 8pm-10pm and came back. It's hard not to eat. 2. Stretching Sporadic. I know how to do it. I'm just lazy. 3. Bike rides About total of 50 miles. Weather remains still rather chilly. What's wi
  2. A week in a wrap. So, according to MFP, I should be loosing weight, but I don't. I really need to reconsider how I'm putting in the entry. It's easy to underestimate the amount. For stretching, I'm under a strict order from my chiropractor to ease my upper shoulder pain. It probably comes from tennis and biking. I'm doing about every other day pace. I need to do it a lot lot more. I did ride 5 miles of biking last Sunday for test riding my newest old (used I shall say) bike. KHS Aero Turbo is a sweet bike. So far, the total of bike ride is 48.3miles. This weekend, I'll probably do 30-
  3. Hi, Swapm! Thank you for checking in. I'm doing all right. Coming back to NF isn't on my priority list at the moment, sadly. Let's see. I am totally into bicycle nerd mode. This is what happens to me. Once I get into a subject matter, I study every bit of it. If you have a minute or to two to spare, take a look at my bicycles. I have one more bike I haven't taken picture of. Because I have too many, I'm trying to get rid of too. Weather is still unkind. Temp was teens just yesterday. I will attempt to bike commute this morning however. It's 40 right now. My day to day habit is ok

  5. Thank you. I'm about to start munching on almonds -- just about midnight. I do go to bed more often than not these days.
  6. 2014-03-09 Mon 1. Cals: 2,164 C: 117, F: 109, P: 150 I ate a little too much. 2. Stretching - Yes 3. Bike: 0/28.3 2014-03-10 Tue 1. Cals: 2,126 C: 71, F: 126, P 124 2. Stretching - No 3. Bike: 14.8/43.1 I did my first bike commute. Cold weather is finally letting it up. 2014-03-11 Wed 1. Cals: 2,268 C: 203 F: 107 P 140 2. Stretching: Yes 3. Bike: 0/43.1 It was a warm day. So far, the food intake does not look good. It's around 2,200 cals. Tonight, I have to go out for a biz dinner, so this week has been not great. I played tennis on Monday and Wednesday. Did a b

I didn't realize that I wasn't eating enough. 2015-03-08 Sun 1. Cals: 2,274 C: 129, F: 142, P: 111 2. Stretching - No. 3. Bike ride: 28.3/28.3 Finally, I went to a bike ride. The roads are still treacherous with ice, snow bank and potholes, so I joined a bike club and did a group ride so that I have some support. It was only 28 miles but after 20 miles my quads started cramping. I'm not in bike shape yet.

Not that I don't have bikes, but I'm becoming a legit bike nerd. Now, I have 4 bikes. I am planning to sell one. Each one has its own role like commute in bad weather (fatter tires with fenders), good weather (narrow tires) and fast ride on off days. My old "fast ride" bike is upgraded thus I have 4. It's Sat. morning and outside is 25 degree. I am not riding in this cold. Tomorrow, tho, the temp goes up to 40. It's

Still too cold for bike 0/0 Cals are 2000 but I played 2 sets of really good tennis singles match. I was exhausted and needed an apple and almond butter for recovery. Without the recovery food, it was 1,700. So, it's good.
  10. My car doesn't do too well in snow but I'm getting by. Looking forward to start biking. I'm becoming legit a bike nerd. Broiled fish came out quite nice. I'll show you when I make one next time.

But, I don't have good energy. I broiled fish for dinner, mahi mahi came out quite good. It took 10 minutes of preheating oven and 10 minutes of broiling. I can do this more often. Lunch was Starkist tuna in pouch, dumped over salad, ate with bolsamic vinegar. Lot of lean protein, and very filling. I ended up somewhat undereating, but I was really full for lunch and dinner. I'm also trying t
  12. Thank you. I feel like I have less of centered/grounded.
  13. Onward. I took a break of challenge due to a bit of situation I had. http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/61813-tennisgeeks-come-back/?view=getlastpost
