Jim's week in review ... back in the saddle again

Yup! Back in the saddle indeed! This has been a good week! My water consumption was up (2-3 bottles per day) and ... don't freak out on this one ... I have been riding my exercise bike again! Every morning this week I have spent 15 minutes on the bike. Honestly, I had forgotten how good that felt. On Tuesday, I went in to work having ridden and a couple teachers mentioned how chipper I was looking.

This weekend, I will be out camping and hiking We will be hiking on the trails of the Northern Kettle Moraine State Forest on the Parnell Segment. First we will be heading to a camp shelter near the Parnell Observation tower and take fresh pics for the front page of my hiking website (which I really need to update). The website can be found at (shameless self-promotion). My plan for Saturday is to hike and aside from breakfast, eat nothing but a couple protein bars and drink nothing but water all day.

A couple times in the past week, I have had some severe intestinal issues, including some bloating, belching (a nasty, sulfuric affair) and diarrhea. A friend suggested a nice little OTC remedy, and I took it for the first time last night and the early results seem promising. I will post more about the results of trying this out next week.

And now, the moment of truth. If you remember my post last week, I had gone back up to 275. Well, today I am down to 273.2 (loss of 1.8). I think that once I break through the 270 barrier, I will probably start losing more rapidly ... I just need to break through that barrier.

Well, off to work for me, and happy losing to you!
