Original Post by trhawley:

Well, when you say "road bike" what do you mean?  Most people think of a skinny tired bike like the one I'm riding in my avi.  These bikes perform much better on paved roads then they do on dirt or gravel.

Is that so?  See, I would be using it on a road, but west Texas is windy and dusty, so would that have a great effect on it?

Original Post by marisahojnacki:

I bought my roadbike from a friend for $150, and now realize that I'd be happier with a hybrid or a mountain bike.  I didn't realize that some bike lanes would be worn out or have sand and dirt on them, or I'd occasionally have to swerve off into the grass to accomodate other bikers.

I'd recommend checking out the terrain that you are going to be facing.  It might be more convenient to get a bike with larger tires.  They have nice ones at Target or Walmart that aren't too expensive.  These bikes generally don't have tires that detach.  If you're riding this bike at school it might be easier to lock it up if the tires aren't easy to remove.

See, this is also a problem, Some of that really made no sense to me.  What does sand and dirt or worn out lanes have to do with biking?

Hey all.  I know its been a few days if not a week since I've posted, but I've been really busy with the end of finals and all of that.  But nonetheless, I've started back up on working out again... not that it should have taken a break.

I jumped on the scale on Sunday and ended up at 170.6 pounds.  Not the highlight of my week, but good considering that I probably made a million poor food choices to fuel late night study sessions in the library on campus. : (  I walked out with a good GPA this semester, so its quite fine.  I'm back on track and I have ABSOLUTELY nothing else to do but workout and pack up my apartment. 

I hate to sound depressing, because I think there should be more happy spirits and whatnot in this thread, but my grandma told me that my grandfather formed two sores on the bottom of his foot.  He is diabetic, and the whole family is really concerned that there might be something very aggressive to fix the issue down the road.  I dont want that to happen to my grandpa. 

So when I found out that news two days ago, I decided that I wanted to jog a mile for those who couldn't do it.  I dedicated my first two miles to him... and I did it in under 25 minutes.  I felt so proud.  When I got to the point where I thought I couldnt do it, I thought of him, and I kept going.  My grandpa is a good man, and he served 26 years in the U.S. Air Force.  I love him.

Anyway, I ALSO found out that my dad has decided to quit smoking, which makes me happy. He has smoked forever. I sent him a text telling him that I havent had a soda in 135 days, and he told me he hadn't had a cigarette in 137 hours!  : )  I know how hard those first few days are, and I know he has the strength to make it.  He is going to get my next two miles.  : )

Anyway, I haven't had time to read all of the posts up until now, but I will go back later today and read them.  If any of you ladies would like me to jog a mile for you, please let me know.  This motivates me, and you all are in my life one way or another [which I KNOW sounds creepy, but we ARE connected by this thread.]

I completely agree to Cellophane.  

I think americans need to learn how to appreciate food for how they taste... NATURALLY.  

 

There have been studies where aspartame and the such have been shown to increase hunger, and where the use of these artificial sugars has in a sense desensitized us to what is sweet and what isnt.  This is because these artifical sugars are many times sweeter than table sugar.

 

My grandmother has drank dietrite for about 5 years and has gained 20 lbs.  I mean, just eat a teaspoon of real sugar.  There is no question whether or not thats going to cause cancer, bladder problems or cause you to have anal leakage.  It WILL cause you to gain weight if you have excessive amounts.

Okay, things are starting to slow down a bit!  I have updated everyone to post 20!

 

I'm waaay behind.  I know I've probably walked a ton, but I cant remember all I've done so I'm just not going to count it.

Please excuse me everyone!  I had a horribly busy week. 

 

I estimate [and probably underestimate] that I walked 10 miles this week.  Since I dont know for sure, I'm just going to go way low and deal with it. 

January 29, 2011:

Bike: 1.8 miles.

 

I will update in a few days.  Please work with me.

Thank you for the advice!  I do eat well, probably around 1200-1700 calories a day, and they are usually whole foods. : )  Thank you.

 

I think it will be somewhat easy to obtain.  I'll have days where I probably wont do anything but I seem to do about 6 miles a day when I hit the gym.  I should be fine.

 

Good luck to you as well,  you have it all figured out yourself, so I dont doubt you'll be able to do it!
