More wii cycling!

While I was waiting for my pizza to arrive tonight I did a bit of cycling while playing wii with my son.

Did 25.57 minutes on level 1, 12.63 km and burned 287 cals.

Although I didn't burn off even a 1/4 of the caleries from the pizza at least it was better than nothing! The wii is definitely a great way to not think about the exercise. I am going to buy some more games this week as the games we have are a bit boring as my son chose all the games so they are all a bit young for me.

Cycling done

Got up early today. Did 45 minutes on level 1.

Did 21.47 km and burned 489 Cals.

I am going to go and play basketball tonight to see how the knees hold up as there is a full court scrimmage for 2 hours tonight. I am going to take it a bit easy and hold off a bit on defence as I tweaked my knee a couple of times on Saturday when I was on d playing on on one.

Mario world and cycling

Took my dog for a walk this morning but she was only walking on 3 legs so only took her for a 5 minute walk.

Decided to play Mario world and cycle on my exercise bike.

Think I will do this all the time while I am cycling as the time passes really fast.

Did 30.10 minutes 18km an burnrd 300 cals apparently.

Off to physio now then off to work.

I am going to try and do another 30minutes to 1 hour on mario world and the exercise bike tonight when I get home from work.

Slack Week

This week I haven't been able to walk with the dog at all! I have been to physio for my knee everyday tho.

I Also went to work and back on my trail bike 4 times which will have burned a few more calories and also did a lot of walking at work which will have helped a bit.

This morning I have done my first session on the exercise bike.

I only used level 1 so as to not strain my knee too much.

I did 30.17 minutes, 13.34 km and burned 304Cals.

Will try to do a bit more and also want to go for a ride on my motorbike.

Started Training Again

I started training again this morning. I got up at 6am and went walking for 45 minutes with my dog.

My knees felt good and the walk was good all in all I struggled a little starting off but after I warmed up it was fine.

Also took my car to clean so did 2 x 15 minute walks as well.

Had my last physio session today and was allowed to cycle on the exercise bike. I asked him if I ok to use my exercise bike and he said that I can but only on a low resistance and only on the exercise bike.

I have a return to my doctor on thursday so I will find out if I need more physio and if I can start going back to the gym soon.

Fit by 41 1/2

Due to working loads and tearing my acls in both knees I havent been able to loose any substantial weight so I have decided to push my goal date 6 months forward.

I am now able to walk pain free so will start walking every morning before work and I am planning to also do a upper body curcuit while I am rehabing the knees.

I got up at 6am this morning but due to a stomach bug I picked up new years eve I decided that it was better to wait another day to fully recover from the bug before I start exercising.

Loosely my plan for January is:


5:30 - 6:00 - Hand Bike
6:00 - 6:30 - Walk with dog
6:30 - 7:00 - Upperbody Circuit
7:00 - 7:30 - Stretching


6:00 - 6:30 - Walk with dog
6:30 - 8:30 - Mountain biking

I have found that historically  I need to train in the mornings as my work regularily means that I miss training, also if I am also much lazier in the evenings!

Added to the exercise I have decided to stop drinking Coca Cola as much of my weight gain is due to drinking at least 2l of coke a day and all of the extra calories it brings.

I havent had a drink of coke this year (3 days) so not doing too badly.
