THR +1005

THR +1005 (2 years, 9 months)

Liverpool, NS

Western Head, Nova Scotia - April 4, 2017
I'm two months in to my Liverpool, NS stay with one to go. As I've noted, I've been going hard on the stationary bike at the gym. Generally two hours every weekday morning. That's 160km. One day I did 51km in a single sitting. That was hard.

But the hard work, plus eating healthy and eschewing alcohol, is playing off. As of this morning I'm down 17 pounds. That's since Feb 6 -- less that two months. This is good.

It's also hard to believe that I had a hip replacement two years and nine months ago. And that the other hip has arthritis. You'd never know. It's such a completely different life from the one filled with pain.

The question now is, how do I lose the rest of the weight (roughly 30 pounds) when I won't have access to the gym everyday?

I'm off to Guatemala for May and June and that's going to be a real test. Calorie laden food. Alcohol. Not a lot of exercise. I hope I can figure something out. I've already arranged for a bike, so that will help.

It's apparent that I need to live close to a gym (or cycle two hours a day) for six months to a year. THAT will get the weight off once and for all.

Still, I'm pleased with my progress and happy that the 'bad' hip doesn't hurt.

And so I goes...
