I don't know how to tell you this...

I was going to post all about my new bike today, yes, it’s true I finally went out and bought a bike for me! I have been busting since yesterday (after I got over the shock and payment) to post a picture of it cause it’s SUPER pretty and when I test drove it I immediately fell in love but then Johan had to go and post this. I mean if that isn’t the COOLEST bike in the universe I don’t know what is so I’ll post about my bike tomorrow after the vision of Johan’s bike leaves our brain (and I have better pictures of my bike).

In the meantime, tri-training IS good for weight loss, trew story. I haven’t paid much attention to the scale recently, I decided I would train and eat smartly but not be too restrictive.  With it being summer and me being Canadian I’m kind of required to drink my share of beer right. Also I should confess that my metabolism has been tanked recently because I quit smoking 45 days ago. Yes you read that right I quit smoking.. I was a smoker.. I don’t even mean I smoked, I mean I smoked like it was an Olympic sport smoked, smoked for 30 years, loved nothing more than a bucket o’ coffee and a carton of cigs type smoking.

I tried from about May to quit, every single week I would quit and by the end of the week I’d be back at it, sometimes I’d make it 1 day, other times I’d nearly make the whole week. Of course I didn’t tell YOU this cause you are all fit and healthy and what would you think of me and my smoking? SO embarrassing… but one day in July I tried again and I haven’t gone back. I have been feeling much better from a lung perspective, I’m seeing gains in every area and it’s fantastic to be able to swim without my lungs threatening to actually explode. What you may not know is that when you quit smoking your resting heart rate decreases significantly which in turn affects your resting calorie burn rate so I decided it was more important to quit smoking and not care what the scale said.. plus you know, I can’t stop the beer, especially now that my smokes are gone!! I understand if you are disappointed in me, I needed to quit in my own time and wasn’t certain I’d even confess here but there it is.

So until the bike post tomorrow, finally I’ll leave you with this (guys you may want to pass on this next part)…. Back to the weight loss, yesterday I went to purchase a new bra and sure enough, I’ve lost 2 inches in my rib cage, WIN!!

BUT  I gained a cup size.. so ladies, want bigger boobs? TRI training!!

Still love me??

In all seriousness, you quit and that is all that matters.

"BDD - I was hoping that slipping it in the middle might make that bit of info more forgetable.. haha Thanks for reading." Talking about bikes ok, talking about boobs, nice... picking up on your response in the comment section... PRICELESS.

I was hoping that slipping it in the middle... hahaha, sorry, mind out of the gutter.

All kidding aside nice job on the smoking. My family is full of smokers... they can't quit. I don't get it but that is because I am an all or nothing guy, its full tilt or nothing at all haha. It has its curses and blessings.

Keep up the great work!!!
