Even up here in the frigid north, winter seems to be losing it's grip. Today I was outside with no jacket. Tomorrow it is supposed to be sunny and 70 degrees. That may not sound like a big deal where you are, but for us folk here in Michigan, it is awesome to have such pleasant weather so early in the year. Yesterday, I rolled out my secret weapon for weight loss, my bike lol. I bought this bike several years ago when I was first diagnosed with diabetes. My intention then was to ride to lose weight. Unfortunately, riding just killed my knee joints. So I put the bike away thinking that I would bring it back our when I lost some weight and the strain on my joints would not be so bad. Well that was about 30-40 pounds ago. After inflating the tires and riding all around for two days, I am thrilled to report I have not had any joint pain.
I love having my elliptical and I use it all the time. Even in the summer if the weather gets bad, I will jump on for a little exercise. However, the elliptic can get a little boring. So, as Michigan starts to warm, I am hoping to melt of a few pounds on my "new" bike that I can finally ride. How is that for a non-scale victory? What do you all look forward to doing now that the weather is starting to change???
