wintersmith's Journal, 07 September 2010

Ok, so now I'm done with business travel for the foreseeable future. Time to start getting everything back on track. My weight has managed to remain stable, if somewhat higher than I want. I think that is a good thing as it means I don't have to work too much harder to start getting things moving in the right direction.

So, step one in my reorganization is my new commute. I work at the same office, but I've decided to exchange the car ride for a bicycle and a train. It is a 15 mile one-way commute (so thirty miles total) but it does burn quite a few calories. I will be doing this three times a week, weather permitting (but in Southern California I figure even in the deepest winter I'll still be making this trek three times per week).

On days I don't commute I'll be going in for martial arts. Tang Soo Do on Saturdays and Mondays. Kickboxing on Thursday or Wednesday and Sunday. I think I'll be OK. I took my first ride in this morning and it went really well. I even got here about 30 minutes earlier than usual. Since I plan on catching the train that leaves a little earlier than the train I ended up taking I think I have a little leeway in my schedule.

I am so jealous, there would be no way I could try to ride a bike to work. Thanks for you comments on my journ, I run/walk it seems to 'losen' up my back. Hope the wife and baby are doing well!

When I went to class for that A+, the school was maybe a 20 min walk from my house and I thought it would be great cause I can walk to and from school. Well the only problem was I always wait til the last minute to leave the house lol and if I had to be there by 7:30 I wouldnt leave my house til 7:10am. I just drove after a while but I hope your more discipline cause I think its cool to be able to walk or ride a bike to work. Good Luck!!!

I go to work in a bike and going to the gym. The pros are no traffic and less expense. The cons is if its raining and i catch a cold recently.
