Fit at Fifty Week Ten

Fit at Fifty Week Ten

Sharing is caring!

I am not going to lie last week was tough!  We were at a week long project and I did not get anything done that I had intentions of doing.  An employee was sick, so I had to take over their load of work which meant I spent more time on my butt than I had planned.  By the time the end of the day rolled around, the last thing I wanted to do was put on the workout clothes I brought along and workout.  Instead I wanted dinner, so I could go back to the hotel and …… work some more.  I gained a pound, and I know exactly why.  Here it is my Fit at Fifty Week Ten round-up!

Fit at Fifty Week Ten

I have to say, I am LOVING having a spin bike at home, and it may be one of the best purchases I have ever made.  I call it the no excuse workout, and have been pretty good about doing it at least thirty minutes everyday.  I did get up to 90 minutes yesterday and it felt GREAT!  The biking sessions I have found online are a blast.

I am traveling again this week with includes a long overseas flight.  My goals are to walk as much as I can on the plane as well I am not bringing my workout clothes to London, instead, I plan on getting up early, grabbing my camera and walking before work.  Lots of walking, plus I am sure lots of eating as we are already talking about hitting some of our favorite places to nosh.  Wish me luck.  I am hoping I am not back at where I started ten weeks ago.

This is HARD!

Interesting Motivation .... how many calories did you burn at that time? I prefer cycling outdoors, seeing beautiful scenery and not feeling the calories are reduced (although a little) .. Hope your day is always fun :)

Hi! While I prefer to be outdoors too, this is a nice alternative for the cold wintery months! Then there is no excuse for not moving ... :)

Taste of France

Monday 31st of October 2016

I did a stationary bike religiously for years. I actually wore out four of them, including the one now in the basement. Waiting for the budget to buy a new one. Meanwhile, I try to run intervals, which I find more productive and less boring than jogging (and free). And I do Pilates. The FitBit is a real eye-opener as far as activity, sleep, calories burned.
