Pedal Pushing Power

I just finished a blaster of a bike workout. The calorie furnaces were burning for a solid 60 minutes!

There are moments while biking where I feel like I could pedal forever. There is a freedom in these moments that are hard to describe. It's like I've been burdened with limitations my entire life but now those limitations are vanishing. I can feel an assertiveness growing within myself and a confidence emerging. Just like a kid lying in bed the night before embarking on a trip to Disney World I too am excited about the future.

As much as I have changed and improved physically in just a few weeks I think that it is the change in my head and heart that is the most profound. I've tried losing weight before but this time it is different. There is a resolve here that will not break, a determination without limits. I will not be denied!

I'm off now for a much needed soak in the tub.

    This is funny because my daughter is going to DW today and she's been up since 3am.

    Way to go with the workouts!

  2. Way to Go MM, keep on burning those calories!

  3. Great job! Love reading about others positive determination, it helps motivate me too! Thanks :)

  4. Woohoo! Sounds like a great feeling! You are kicking butt.

    P.S. - If you ever get tired of signing 'MM,' you could try 'Eminem.' Just saying... That would be fun. :)

  5. I'm with you. This time, the lifestyle change feels permanent. Glad to be along for the ride with you.

  6. Amen's the change in the head and heart that will make the change in the body permanent. Good for you for dedicating yourself to that change....way to burn those calories!! You're doing fantastic! :)

  7. That's so freakin awesome! I remember a time in my life when i used to 'need' to keep going with my exercise. [what happened to them? lol] I say keep going man!
