Biking with the Bluths...and a DietBet Update

Happy Monday to you all!

As I have been passing the time anxiously awaiting everyone's race recaps from BMO Vancouver yesterday (HINT!), I decided I might as well go burn some calories in the gym and hopped onto a bike with my new favourite biking companions, the Bluth family.


It was kind of a false start at first, though - I got all set up down there and then realized I had forgotten my headphones.  Reminder to self - bring extra headphones to keep in work gym bag... But I made a quick trip to my desk and then I was set. Two episodes later, I was good and sweaty and ready to get on with my day. I also feel like I pedaled off some of the stiffness from Saturday's race and BIG PR!.

My legs were moving so fast - they are just a blur!


8.5 miles in 40 mins.   But, more importantly - MORE ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT! LOL

and I tried a new position for my fitbit on the bike today...

It was a bit better...but still only registered 2500 steps.  Methinks that's about all there is.  Oh and apparently I am so winter-pale that it looks like I am wearing grey tights.  Gross.

and, now for a DietBet update.

For most of this month, my weight has not budged.  Then, after I figured out the whole "I'm anemic" thing last week, I started supplementing my iron and suddenly dropped 3 lbs like that *snaps fingers*

So with only 3.5 lbs left to go to win this DietBet, I figure that is totally doable in a week.  But my body is a mess.  So, I picked this up and started it yesterday...time to purify.


I liked this kit because it seemed the least invasive...it allows me to eat real meals and had good reviews.  I may post a full review next week once it's over.  I'm on day two and feeling a bit lighter already, though the scale says otherwise.  I may end up shooting myself in the foot on the diet bet...but ultimately I am just trying to reset my body a bit so it can start to heal itself....and if I lose $25 (the bet entry fee) in the process then so be it...

  1. I gotta get me some of those sweet grey tights! I don't know if I can get the last few lbs off to win DietBet this week! I'm still enjoying my post-marathon guilt-free eating!

    1. Well - the tights are easy to come by...it's called "Move to Alberta where it is winter 6 months of the year"! HA HA HA HA

      I'm still not sure I'm going to make it either on the diet bet. If everyone who is doubting right now actually doesn't win - the people who do win are going to have a sweet payday (so, incentive for me to work harder lol)

  2. 6 months of the year? More like 7-8!! I have a pair of grey tights just like that. They are sexy!

    Hope those last couple of pounds melt off for you!
