Today marked 100 consecutive days where I had a cycling workout in for each day — with at least one major workout each week.

In that time I lost around 20 pounds.

My overall fitness went way up.

I started down this path back in February. As the days ticked up I was increasingly reluctant to break the chain of days. First it was a month. Then 50 days. Now 100.

As neat as it is that I’ve developed this habit, I’ve also not been giving my body any breaks. That’s not ideal. I know that — but honestly I didn’t much care. I must get back in shape; where I got to was completely unacceptable, and I’m never going to go back.
