A few weeks back, I blogged about how I was giving up laziness for Lent.
Specifically, I wanted to get into an exercise routine, so I set a somewhat vague goal to exercise on a routine basis.
I’m happy to report that I kept with it. I rode the exercise bike a total of 28 times during Lent, going for nearly 12 hours total, burning just over 4,000 total calories according to the readout, all while pedaling nearly 200 miles. I know the intensity is pretty light with those numbers, but compared to what I had done in the months leading up to it (nothing), I’m very happy.
Now, the next goal is to keep it up!
As a side note, my wife’s goal (which I joined her in) was to stop snacking before bedtime (we used 8pm as the cutoff). This was achieved as well!
All in all, it was a pretty healthy and successful Lent!
