Weight 185: Leaves me speechless, cause I just kind of growl now, LOL. I sure would like to get back to 180 so I could have my “bad-meal” every now and then. I’ll keep working at it.
Bike Ride! : Hey I finally got to do that bike ride I’ve been wanting to do. I rode with MapMyRide! Distance: 11.82mi, time: 01:09:48, pace: 5:54min/mi, speed: 10.16mi/h.
This was a good ride considering I have not rode for many months. The shoulder of the road was a little wider than I thought and I felt fairly safe. I did add a little stretching to my day and maybe I’ll do another round of stretching later today.
Week’s workout Summary:
WORKOUT SUMMARY for 03/03/2014 – 03/09/2014
2,512 kCal burned
Battery Maintenance: Today I checked and added water to the batteries and did a little maintenance by cleaning all the connections and there are are few of those seeing as I have four batteries. Anyways, as the batteries get older the more that needs done and it is important that it gets done.
Boat Ride: I met a fellow(Jim) here that has a boat and he invited me along for a boat ride. It has been many years since I had been on a boat and it was a good bit of fun riding around Lake Havasu.
Weight 187: I’m sad that this seems to be where my weight wants to settle I sure hope it don’t get higher! I’m having a go at trying to see where I’m going wrong on this weight thing. One possibility may be where I have changed my exercise from bike riding to walking because I get a little harder workout riding the bike. I can push harder on the bike because it don’t hurt the knees as much. Not sure if that is it or not, maybe.
Wind: It is starting out to be another windy day, we’ve had a few in a roll now. Well spring is on its way, and the southwest has it’s wind in the spring.
Walk: I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 3.09mi, time: 01:34:39, pace: 30:36min/mi, speed: 1.96mi/h.
http://mapmywalk.com/workout/501059127 As you can see from the pace it was much more like a stroll than a walk but at least I was out moving.
Weight 187: I am really frustrated at this weight thing. Making me nuts. In the evening I have a good size salad and I guess that is the next thing I’ll cut back on. Sometimes I must keep in mind that not so long ago I weight in at near 300 pounds so ……….. in the big picture, 187 is not so bad. No matter, it is important to me to learn to control the smaller amounts because that is how the bigger weight sneaks on. Couple pounds here, couple pounds there and boom, you are a bear! The battle continues.
Colorado River : The river is not far, I can see it from where I’m parked, so a to walk river will happen at some point, at least once. Of course if I stay long, there will be more than one trip. Maybe one today.
Walk: Well, it turns out the river is a little farther than it looks. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 6.52mi, time: 02:14:58, pace: 20:41min/mi, speed: 2.90mi/h.
http://mapmywalk.com/workout/500238045 It was a great walk and it give me some much-needed exercise. I did add a small amount of stretching.
My stop for lunch yesterday, Here.
Weather: Got a fair amount of wind blowing today but the temperature is fine. Most of the time when I’m not speaking of the weather much, it is because I’m very happy with it. It has been the best winter I have ever had anywhere, just as pleasant as can be.
Weight 186: Still got the bigger than a bear thing going on, LOL. Looks like another adjustment is going too be needed.
Move: I have not taken off just yet, but I will be on the road soon. Still kicking around anything ” the what’s” I may need from the stores. When it comes to food, I’m a bit of an over-stocker. Maybe it has something to do with my love of eating? At any rate I want to have everything I need for a week or two, in case I end up far from a store. There is a casino up the road that I could stop at for a night ….. I’m not big on casinos but it could be something different to do. I sure don’t gamble, gambling is just a way to throw your money away, the way I see it. I really prefer the open space of the desert. Still I could at least look around ….. maybe. For now it is blogging, chilling and thinking but moving will come at some point today.
New location: http://goo.gl/maps/Iq8Vf This will do for a place to stop for a while. I’ll do some pictures later.
Walk: I did more walking than this but that walking was for other things and not exercise. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.52mi, time: 01:00:26, pace: 24:00min/mi, speed: 2.50mi/h. http://mapmywalk.com/workout/499680061 I have let my stretching slip for two days running now, hopefully I’ll get to it tomorrow.
Weight 187: Maybe I’m going to swell up and bust! Playing with the diet to see what I can do with this.
New Location: http://goo.gl/maps/ZnX14 This morning I got things ready and hit the road. I’m overnighting in a parking lot behind a McDonald’s. There is a Gateway, Walmart and a couple fast food places all within a few hundred feet of my RV. I have done most of my shopping for now and will just hang out and chill for the night. The morning will fine me on the road again going just a bit farther north. Maybe one of the places I stayed at on the way down here and maybe a new spot, we’ll see.
Feels good: Moving gives me this great feeling even when I’m not going far. Folks, a house on wheels is just the ” cat’s eye” you ask me. You get a new yard every time you take a drive If I was loaded with money I think I would move every two weeks just for the fun of it.
Last week walking stats: Not sure this one is right? But it probably is, because I did not walk a lot last week.

Time for a new bird?: Guess I have been slacking off on this. I took this picture near Painted Rock, AZ. It is not a very good image
No TV: I have no TV channels here. I like to at least watch the news in the evening That is okay a break from the T.V. is good.
Weight 185.4: One of these days ….. maybe it’ll be less
Chores: I did decide to make one more trip to Blythe today. I stopped to do my laundry on the way over. Of course I did a little shopping while I was there, wash the truck and picked up some water to wash the RV when I got back. So I have been busy today. Both the truck and the RV needed the wash job pretty bad. The truck I did at the car wash but I just used my tank of water to do the RV and it took only about 15 gallons, not bad.
Walk: I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.86mi, time: 58:47, pace: 20:35min/mi, speed: 2.91mi/h.

Walk: I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 3.41mi, time: 01:01:54, pace: 18:10min/mi, speed: 3.30mi/h.
A man of few words: Yep, I think that sums me up today . I have been rolling around my next move today, in my head, the when and where. It will be north and soon, I think. Although I didn’t think I would take another trip to Blythe, I just may tomorrow, we’ll see. I may do laundry again too.
TV: One thing I will miss is the good TV reception that I get here.
Okay, I got nothing
Weight 185.6: The battle continues.
Walk: This is a short one for Sunday figure I’d better keep it down for the knees. I walked with MapMyWalk+! Distance: 2.55mi, time: 54:34, pace: 21:25min/mi, speed: 2.80mi/h.
