Just made it!

This was close timing! I did the exercise yesterday, but I think the deadline is in about 8 hours from now. ;-)

Exercise: Cycling (the family and I biked to downtown to play at the castle park. It took about 40 minutes on way)
Then we took several new ALT's on a walking tour of downtown to show them where things (like the 24 hour post office/bank/ramen noodle shops etc were...since, unless they have some proficiency in Japanese, its not an easy thing to do. (I was learning new things myself yesterday, and I have been here a year! What a difference it makes to be a literate person. I look forward to that aspect of returning to Canada next year :-))

Time: 40 +40= 80 min cycling
walking a lot of the evening.

Good news! The scale shows that I am down about 2 1/2 Kilos since I started. That's about 5lbs. Small yea! (I love using Kilos when it come to HOW MUCH weight I need to lose because it doesn't seem like so much. But when it comes to reporting how much weight I have lost already...I like using pounds because is sounds like so much MORE! ;-) sheeesh, I can be such a girl!)

Good job!!

Do you find yourself looking forward to your workouts yet? I get antsy on the days that I don't think I'm going to have time for exercise.

As for the weight loss, I stepped on the scale for the first time in a long time this week. I had actually lost over a kilo! Bikkurishita!! Like you said, I doesn't sound like much, but it's something!

Keep it up!

It's 10:25 Pacific, and I had to check up on you! I'm cheering for you - I hope you never have to dish out the iTunes. You go girl!

To be honest Linea, sometimes I don't know the difference between excitement and fear...
I enjoy the LSD method of exercise (Long, Slow, Distance)...But Colin is pushing me to get my heart rate up and to do interval training (and he's the expert) so right now, for me, it is about perserverence. (Also, I need a pair of biking shorts in the biggest way!!! ;-)

Thanks L-A!!
