Bike Riding Journey #1: Weight Loss

For my birthday I asked for a 26″ Huffy Nel Lusso Cruiser bike and an Allen Sports 2-child steel bike trailer to pull my kids in. I wanted a bike to have a different way of working out. I also use my bike to take Brooklyn to school in the mornings and pick her up after school.

On Thursday October 5th my bike was dropped off at my house. My husband put my bike together for me. My first ride was on Sunday October 8th after church. I have been out riding for a week now and I’m loving it. The best part is that my sisters bought bikes too and we go riding together. I pull my one year old daughter and my four-year old nephew in the trailer.

I love getting a nice leg workout with riding my bike. My goal is to lose my remaining baby weight. With my second pregnancy I have had a harder time losing this extra weight. With this bike riding journey I want to share with you how many miles I ride and how much weight I lose. Right now I am 33 pounds away from my goal weight. Each week I’ll share how much weight I have lost.

    Those bikes look enjoyable to ride whether I need to lose weight or not

      They are very fun to ride. I am glad I finally got a bike to ride. It had been almost 15 years since I owned a bike.
