Well, we are moving along in my quest for a healthier me. It is hard to believe we are in the sixth month of the FIT Challenge.
The sessions with Derek Nimrichter of Bodi N Balance went well this past week. On June 7 we did several different sets. On June 10 we worked primarily on core and on June 12 we did increased weight sets to help burn more calories.
I have mentioned this before, but I continue to enjoy the sessions at Bodi N Balance and I am seeing the "fruits" of my labor in increased strength and agility.
I have started to bicycle a little to try and get in shape to ride with my brother later this summer or fall.
My twin brother is the one who rode almost 4,000 miles last year and my challenge is to ride a couple of times with him (maybe 50 miles each time).
It is good to see myself getting to the point where I can truly see this goal come to reality instead of just joking with him about riding. I told Derek last week that a year ago I was considering a rider to cut grass at home and now I can walk as much as I need to without feeling completely worn out.
I am still talking to many people about the FIT Challenge and what it is doing to help my health.
I see many people wanting to change their lives, but just need to start. The diet has been good and is working by portion control and making far better choices. A little exercise and making better food choices could help most people and is not a drastic change in anyone's life.
