I volunteered at the library today. I got all of the Annual Appeal letters done and ready to be sent out. All of the board members got them signed... It is a good feeling getting such a large task like that finished.
After I volunteered, I went for a ride. I only did 10 miles today. I don't know why, but I was out of my groove, and my heart just wasn't in it. It could be because I smashed my hand yet again while unloading my bike, or it could have been because yesterday I got blood work and my arm hurts like nobody's business.
Yesterday was a fun day... after I almost passed out from blood work, I went to the Jeep dealer and got my Jeep serviced. Then when that was done, I went shopping. Shopping is a pain in my rear now. I am at the point where all of my clothes are too big. I need something to wear, but I am not done losing weight yet, so I don't want to spend a lot of money. I have checked thrift stores, and nothing is really jumping out at me.
Oh, and you know... I know they aren't the best thing in the world... but behold my last guilty please
and I am NOT giving those up!

For giggles, I entered my fudge recipe in the Spark calculator... even if I make it 24 servings (which is next to impossible unless you want a crumb) It has 297 calories a piece! I don't get anywhere near 24 pieces out of a pan... to think, I would eat 1/4 of the pan at a sitting, plus eat it out of the pan after I was done cooking it...
Everyone raves about my Peanut Butter Fudge. I don't know if I can, in good conscious, make it for my co-workers this Christmas. I feel bad, knowing the nutritional content of it. I guess it is up to them if they want to eat it because they know that it isn't good for them... but still.
I finished up the letters today for the Annual Appeal. The Library will be sending them out next month. Keep your fingers crossed that we get lots of money back!
I went for my usual 15 mile ride after today. I think my body is starting to get used to it because I only burned a little over 650 calories. The first few times I did it, I was at over 800! It is still good exercise tho, and I keep pushing myself harder. I like it a lot.
I got a call back from the trainer today. I wasn't home to get the call, so I have to call back tomorrow to make arrangements.
My new FitBit station also came today, so all is right with the world.
I think that is all for now
ps: if anyone wants my recipe for peanut butter fudge let me know... eat at your own risk!

I have been doing the majority of my riding at the local Rails to Trails. It has been a lot of fun. It still is fun, I enjoy it. I think however, that I want to go to a slightly more advanced trail. I have been checking out some around my area, and I think I am ready to take on some beginner trails. I have to wait for my boyfriend however, because I don't want to go alone.
I guess the worst thing that can happen is I get there and can't go very far and will have to walk my bike.
All in all, the day has been good. Spent the afternoon at the library volunteering, then went on a 15 mile ride. Right now, I am getting my laundry done then heading to bed. I am also going to be volunteering tomorrow.
I think that is all for now
** this is where I think I would like to start riding **

My boyfriend woke me up today at 11. We went to the Landfill to take some of the refuse from next door. He has been gutting the house as we plan to start renovations here soon. Then after the dump, we went through the Burger King drive-thru. He got 2 cheeseburgers and an onion ring. I got nothing. I unwrapped his burgers and took the pickles off for him... and fed him onion rings as he drove down the road.
When we got home, I had something to eat and we spent the rest of the day until he had to go to work together... it was really nice. I actually had my bike loaded up ready to go, but decided to skip the ride and spend "time" with my boyfriend, since it had been a little over a week since we spent "time" together.
I had a ride planned for tomorrow, but there is a 100% chance of rain and thunderstorms, so, if that is the case it looks like I will be hitting the gym. I haven't been there for a long time because I have been blowing it off to ride my bike.
Speaking of, I called about a personal trainer, and no one has gotten back to me yet and it has been almost a week. I am not really impressed... I really NEED to work with a trainer, and them not getting back to me is making me not want to renew my membership. Which we all know is a load of BS since it is the only gym close to me, other than the YMCA. I guess I could always buy my own ST Equipment stuff, but you know... I am not even doing ST until the freaking trainer gets back with me to set something up.
My new FitBit base isn't here yet. I emailed them and asked if it had shipped. I see they released a new one, which if I had to, I will buy another one since I can't live without it, but I really don't want to. I want the one I have to work correctly and sync correctly. If this new base doesn't work, hopefully customer service will replace the device entirely. I really rely on my FitBit, but with not being able to sync it, I am losing my motivation.
It is supposed to be nice on my days off. I have volunteer work and bike rides planned. Friday my boyfriend and I are going out to dinner (Olive Garden) and to the bike shop to look for a few things.
I am not having luck with electronics. Not only is my FitBit acting up, but my bike trip computer is too. I think it might be because it got drenched a few times, but I notice it isn't very accurate. I thought about wireless, but everyone seems to think the wired ones are better...
I think that is all for now
