Accountability

Tuesday, December 16, 2014

It was indeed a beautiful day yesterday. Temperatures in the 70's and the sun was out. A great day for a bike ride. Am attempting to eliminate peanut butter from my diet. It's very habit forming, for me. I just can't seem to hold back my desires to have more and more. On Sunday I finished it off and don't plan on buying more for a long while. Sure bona miss that deliciously nasty stuff. HOOAAA!!

    I keep a small jar of PB at work to stave off hunger in the afternoon. That way I don't reach for something worse - candy, chips, cookies in the breakroom. Couple of teaspoons and I'm good until I can get home.

Had a bike ride scheduled yesterday, but another flat spoiled the fun. Decided to switch wheels and put in some really heavy and longer lasting inner tubes. Discovered that what was causing some of the flats was a rear on the side of my almost new tire. Anyway, it took a while to switch wheels, cassettes and inner tubes. When finished, I was not in any mood to ride the bike so, I gave it a real good cleaning. HOOAAA!!

    There's satisfaction in having your bike look and function well, and it'll be all ready for your next ride which will be way more fun knowing it's in good working order. Right? Right!

    Redirect your efforts. When frying eggs, if a yolk breaks, quickly ask whether they want their eggs scrambled or scrambled well!

It's Saturday morning and a very dreary day. There's fog in the air so, visibility is not too good. Dangerous for cyclists. Especially me cause I don't have lights in the front of the bike. So, I'll just have to wait until it clears up a bit. But cycle I will do. HOOAAA!!

  Great idea to wait for fog to clear. There's always later. Good Luck!!!

    Good call on waiting. Even with lights ... fog is just bad for peds and cyclists alike!

Christmas Shopping

Friday, December 12, 2014

I detest shopping in crowded places. It is for that reason that I shop at nice stores and avoid the K-mart/Walmarts of the world. In our house, the shopping for presents is mostly done by the Boss Lady. While she dislikes shopping, she doesn't trust me to pick presents that are reasonably priced. This year she did most of her Christmas shopping on-line at Macy's. Apparently, the latter had a nice sale and she spent $600+ that would normally have cost her over $1,400. I found that impressive. I went yesterday and shopped at REI and AT&T. At the former I bought the Boss Lady her presents (she's the outdoor type) and the dogs their stocking stuffers. At AT&T, I bought our son an I-phone 6. It ended up costing me the Tax only. Apparently, they have a new family wireless plan that saves us over $45. So, the cost of the phone will be included in the monthly amount that we pay and still save us $$ from what we had been paying. I like that. He will be happy and after the very challenging semester that he had at college, it will be richly deserved. HOOAAA!!

    And that is why I love online shopping. Refuse to go into a store after Thanksgiving. My UPS, USPS and FedEx guys love me. emoticon

    I detest Christmas shopping so I get all my shopping done before Thanksgiving. Usually the wrapping too so I have time to forget what I purchased for people and I'm surprised too when they open their gifts. I stay away from Walmart always. Hate that store and how their employees are treated. Wish more people would boycott them.

It's been an interestg December 2015, so far. While I haven't been real bad with my nutritional choices, it has not been real pretty. Thand God that the only thing that's on course, so far, is my cycling. If it weren't for that, I'd be in deep trouble. HOOAAA!!

    Are you clairvoyant now? You already know how your December 2015 is shaping up. emoticon Sorry just had to bust on you a little. Have a great weekend!

BTW - had a fellow cyclist in my yoga class on Tuesday night and we talked about hitting the trails together next Spring. Looks like I might just get out on my bike afterall. Looking forward to it.

    The holidays can be tough! But there is no choice but to do the best we can. Your passion for cycling is a lifesaver and waist-saver.

You are an inspiration dude!

Thanks, Bruce
