Lent’s Over…So How’d I Do?

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!

  1. Good job! You should keep posting about this every now and then to help with accountability! It also may inspire some of us to join you.

  2. @JD – I will try to post an every-so-often update. So far on the exercising front, I have dropped off a bit though I've been doing some outside work that I think makes up for it. We've resumed some of our snacking after 8pm, but have definitely cut back by at least 50% from pre-Lent levels, which my wife and I are both comfortable with!
