Getting in Shape: Week 4
Mixing up my workouts this week to make sure that I get at least three rides in a week and at least one weight training session. So I’m riding Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and weight training Thursday evening. I’m also finished driving to work for a long while; that’s part of our money-squeezing ways with Stefanie now working only part-time. But it gives me an excuse to ride my bike more and to supplement that with a bus pass again. I rode the bus for my first 1.5 years working at the courthouse, so this isn’t a big deal for me.
Got some bad news Friday at the sleep doctor’s office. The tech that I saw — I don’t see the sleep doc for another three weeks — said that although I’m adjusting to the C-PAP machine, he noticed that I’m still having “sleep apneas”. That sucks. It could be nothing — possibly even just my body still sometimes fighting the air that is blasted down my nasal cavity every night — but it might mean that the C-PAP isn’t working.
I also weighed myself and found that I had gained two pounds. I’m now 247. LAME. I blame all the retirements and other parties, with their tasty, tasty cake and cookies, last week. And the fact that I’m only lifting weights once a week. Last summer, when I lost 20 pounds in three months, I was riding my bike to work two or three times a week and going to my weight training class twice a week. I need to get back to twice a week, but with our hectic schedule that has been difficult. Here’s to a new goal then.
