Day 19 Update

It's Sunday evening and this morning I completed the 19th day of my 30-Day Peloton Challenge. I'm 3/4 of the way through and I thought this would be a good time to check in and document challenges and how I'm feeling. I did jump on the scale and I didn't lose any weight this time around. I'm a little disappointed because after my 7-day update, I lost 2 pounds. I had zero expectations of weight loss when I committed to this challenge so no big deal. My biggest goal is actually just riding the bike for 30 days straight!

My first 7 days went as planned. I got on the bike and rode my 30 minutes every day without a hitch. Last week I think was the first minor road bump of the challenge. The night before was one of those nights when I couldn't get to sleep. I'd wake up every hour and look at the time on my phone. I don't know if I wasn't feeling good or not but sleep wasn't happening. The next morning I woke up and felt like total garbage. On any other day I would have taken the day off but when you've committed to a challenge that's not an option. That day I first completed a weightlifting session in my shed gym and then my 30-minute ride. I got through it but I wasn't happy. It wasn't an A+ plus training day but if you've been exercising for a while you know sometimes a C+ workout is better than nothing!

Diet and Nutrition

On my 7-day update, I reported back my diet was about 90 percent dialed in. That's right where I want to be because it's the perfect combination of discipline and being able to enjoy food. Well, I think I'd say my diet was about 75-80 percent dialed in this week. Last weekend we had a little family get-together and we had a pierogi-making feast. This weekend was St Patrick's day and I had some corned beef I turned into some Rubens. Considering that, it's not a surprise there was no weight loss. I'll be aiming for 90 percent again this week.

19 days into my first 30-day fitness challenge I've ever started and I feel surprisingly good. I had ideas that at some point without a day off I would have muscle soreness or a nagging injury but that hasn't been the case. I think I've also managed my ride selection to try and combat that as well. I'll do a couple of harder rides and then complete a low-impact ride. If I did 7 HIIT rides in a row I don't know if I'd be this far. With the challenge more than halfway over I'm excited to see the end.

The Home Stretch

11 more days to go and I can almost see the finish line. In the beginning, I didn't know if I'd be able to finish. Now I know that I will. With my remaining time, I want to concentrate on my diet so I'm in that 90 percent grove again. Couple that with my rides and I have no doubt I'll come out of this stronger!
