GTG

12 posts in this topic

Ok, so I am thinking the 16th of May I am heading down to Cannon Falls to hit the bike trail down there. Who else is up for the GTG still and would that work for everyone interested?

I was thinking the 17th, but I go back to work at 6am that Monday, so I want to have some time to rest as I plan on doing the whole trail.

For those who might come but might be traveling a distance, I was planning on being there around 10am. Does that work???

Here is a site about the trail: cannonvalleytrail.com.

Not sure what other details anyone needs to know, but here is what I have so far. (I'm also thinking of checking out the winery down there!) winkgrin

I was trying other weekends in May, but the weekend of the 9th is fishing opener and the weekend of the 23 is Memorial weekend. frown I plan on hitting way more trails and will probably go down there more than once, so if you wanna go biking sometime let me know: jesyka_41@hotmail.com. I don't mind traveling to find a great trail smile.

For personal reasons, I need to back out from this gtg. Not many people are showing up it looks like, but if other people want to go have fun.

I do plan on hitting that trail sometime this summer. If anyone else is interested in doing a gtg, let me know. Anyone looking to hit up trails this summer in the metro area (I'll even travel a little outside the metro if I have enough time off of work) feel free to email me at jesyka_41@hotmail.com.

Sorry everyone frown.

    • Whole weekend cheats yes I agree even with ideal weight but one cheat meal a week I feel is ok If you are maintaining your calorie deficit for everything else. I feel like this is actually a good thing because when you are in a calorie deficit your bodies metabolism actually will slow down as your leptin levels drop to conserve energy. Having one cheat meal will temporarily raise your levels.  Now your cheat meal should be sensible still something with carbs and protein think burger or philly cheese steak sandwich pizza with sausage two or 3 slices not the whole pizza.   Fasted cardio before your cheat meal is also recommended         Anyway like others have said before being in a calorie deficit is the way to lose weight You need to find your calorie maintenance level then ideally cut 500 calories a day below that this will get you around 1lb of fat a week loss. Weigh yourself ONCE a week in the morning and track your progress give it 3 weeks before you evaluate and see if the calorie deficit you are at is right if you gained or stayed the same weight take more calorie off your daily intake. Being in a 500 calorie deficit is the most important part exercise comes second when adding exercise this is going to add to the daily calorie you burn so if without exercise you calorie deficit to lose weight was at 2500 calories with exercise it might be 2700 calories a day.   When cutting or anytime really clean foods are #1 in my book if it doesn't spoil in a week I don't eat it Think chicken, broccoli, green beans, peppers, sweet potatoes, green beans, turkey blah blah   You should also count your Macronutrients which are carbs protein and fat Ideally when cutting  10-30% carbs, 40-50% protein, 30-40% fat  
    • Have you had a chance to use your new Garmin Ref? Any feedback to share... 
    • Now that Dems are out of the majority I am seeing big sales on black guns. I would think you could get a better modern rifle than the bushmaster for a very reasonable price right now. 
    • "Because he lives in a high tension area" ... "high capacity"....    This one sounds like trouble just waiting to happen.
    • check for crack in the boot between the motor and the carb. get it started squirt some carb cleaner on the boot if the rpm goes up there is a leak.   
    • just spotted one. yay ! LOL 
    • Leech is absolutely on the right track.  Likely an easy remedy here.
    • Oh yes, he has been around guns since young. I suspect it is a combination of his thinking they are "cool" weapons and the fact that he lives and often has to work in a "high tension" area. I believe he is more interested in high cap than high quality and he can likely spend something reasonable. Since these things are not my bag I am unaware of pricing, features etc. just told him I could ask around for him. Have never had one in my hands! He may have been fired up because he saw some special at F.Farm on them. Thanks.
    • No battery in a 185 3 wheeler. Will have to pull it by hand.
    •   Does he own other guns?   What does he want it for? Self defense Hunting Just to own an AR because they are cool   How much money does he have to spend on one?
