I bought a bunch of winter gear last week so I can still ride my bike in the cold. Took it all out for a spin today for an hour. Really brutal ride but it felt great. I have a bike trainer for indoor riding but I just can't get into it.

I was able to meet my strength training goal. Plan to keep doing this through week 2. I will however try to increase to the week 2 strength training goal and add in watching my portion sizes. Turns out that free technology seems to be a good motivator for me!!!
In the interest of full disclosure...I missed one day (Saturday) it was just too busy with our kids activities and all. I think we were allowed one miss. However, I did notice that I missed doing it. I have figured out that strength training wakes me up and kind of gives me a bit of a spring in my step.
Also yesterday and today I had to drop down to one set of squats as my knee is getting a bit sore. Old injury. I think I am going to try and just do the squats every other day to see if the soreness gets better.
Thanks again for the motivation and a push to get started!!!

So it seems as if I may have started week 2 a little early as I went by the week, but nonetheless, I am still drinking a crap ton of wter and not drinking any soda aside from the 1 Diet Dr. Pepper that I had.
I am still doing my 2 sets of 10 pushups and crunches a day with now 20 minutes of calestenics.

CARDIO: I will try to continue to play racquetball three times a week Mon., Wed. & Friday from 05:30AM-06:30AM before going to work. I will also once again try and ween myself off of coffee.
Anybody know of a good/great racquetball app for iOS or aOS?

I am going to try commutting on my bike once a week (weather permitting for the 6 miles each way) and visit the gym twice a week. Week one (1 Feb - 4 Feb), I visited the gym twice for running and was able to go out for a trail ride, but weather wasn't good for commutting. We are almost at the end of week two (by the work week) and I was able to commute in three times this week (temps averaged 35 degrees) and made it to the gym twice. I am hitting the gym with a coworker and we added a core workout to help with our biking. I would like to think I am helping him meet his weight loss goal of 30 pounds by Spring, but he is helping me stay on track with frequency. Our ultimate goal is to do the 100+ miles of cross country mountain bike trails in Burk, Vermont in June. We (my office mate and I) feel this is helping us be motivated to make that goal.

My goal is 3x a week strength training and 3x a week running 2 miles in 15 min.
So far during great. I hit it.
Next week will be 4 miles in 30min and 4 days of strength training. Also to cut out pastries for a week. Raspberry filled cream cheese Danish at my loca coffee shop.. I must resist.
