Losing Weight Part 4, or 5, I’m losing count

Here I go, obsessing over my weight again. I better choose my words carefully or I might come across as neurotic as I actually am. Between a hectic schedule and wasting a few opportunities, I haven’t spent much time at all on my bike this month. I have read enough blogs to know I am the only kid on the block who isn’t riding. The one thing I can control off the bike is my weight. I have struggled with my weight for years. Last night Allie and I went out for ice cream (and to look at cakes for no particular reason) while we waited for Em to finish dance practice. I didn’t get any for myself but I swear it is easier to do intervals than bypass ice cream.

I got a cup of coffee at work this morning and saw someone brought in Rice Krispie Treats. Nice. And the person in the office next to mine brought in cup cakes. Are you even kidding me? If I touched either I would have enough guilt to start my own religion.

I will have a couple hours to myself this afternoon before I return my dad’s car. It is suppose to be beautiful today. I figured out the electrical issue with his Mercury. I can either spend 2 hrs fixing it or I can ride outside. Either way I will be consumed with guilt.


  1. “Guilt is regret for what we’ve done.
    Regret is guilt for what we didn’t do.”

  2. Oh that's just I have guilt and regret.

  3. I hope you had a chance to ride without guilt!

  4. Welcome back to Ohio Mary. I spent my time working on my dad's car...without guilt or regret. I will ride outside soon.

  5. you certainly aren't the only one not riding. After 2, 3 hour weeks, I took weeks 3 off again. I was playing the weight game during my 4 months off as well. The 10 lbs that I'm down from last year is making a big difference in offsetting my loss of fitness. It was almost as good as training ;)

    It's just so darn hard to have a family, job, and ride a bike. When any little thing goes out of sync...we are hosed.
