My incentive

Friday, April 19, 2013

I'm a team leader for our local Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Cycle for Life. I want to buy this kit. Yesterday, I decided that when I get down to 185 pounds (and stay there for a week, so no short cuts!), I get to buy it. Yes, it's pricey, but I want it and we can afford it. teamcf.dnacycling.cc/ladies.html

And maybe Team Vanderkitten will be my incentive to get down to 165 pounds. www.vanderkitten.com/shop/product-ca

As I was changing in preparation to ride my bike home, I discovered I didn't have shorts at work. I drove home. There isn't an emoticon sad enough to convey how that made me feel.

Will Power is a Muscle - It Gets Stronger with Use!

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Yesterday, I ignored my nagging craving to eat a second helping of the Hub's fabulous chicken florentine for lunch. (Because I commute by bike, I bring in several days' lunches at once.) I still ate too much at dinner, but I was pretty happy with myself for saying "no" to second lunch.

Today, I ran an errand during lunch. At first, I planned to swing by Taco Bell. Then I decided to swing by Fred Meyer's and pick up fried chicken strips & jojos. It was a pitched battle, but I talked myself out of both, and ate the lunch I brought from home. I may again eat too much at dinner, but I'm pretty happy with my will power workout. Two days in a row, I made a healthier choice for lunch. I'm going to keep working on this - maybe I'll have a massive outbreak of self-control.

April's looking like March should have looked!

Monday, April 15, 2013

I didn't get a ride in this weekend. Saturday's winds were just too much. Sunday, after church, we went to a few nurseries and bought more goodies for the garden.

On my way back from court this afternoon, I started off in sunshine, noted a strong northerly wind (yay! downwind of Hanford!), then sideways rain which turned into hail, followed by sleet. I'm assuming this weather system will have passed by the time I leave work. It better have moved on, because I intend to ride my bike home!

Washington's DOT closed westbound I-90 over Snoqualmie Pass this weekend because of the number of spun-out vehicle blocking the interstate. Eastbound traffic had to be chained up. There were a couple of avalanches in the area, too (but not over the freeway - WSDOT does an excellent job of avalanche control); a couple of people died. Weather-wise, April is shaping up to be much crazier than March was.

Probably no ride today

Saturday, April 13, 2013

There's a high wind warning today. I can tell just by looking out the window I don't want to ride. The forecast is for 30-40 mph winds with 50 mph gusts. The crazy thing is, I'm still tempted.

Maybe I'll go for a mountain bike ride instead. emoticon
