Yea, motivation is back, but time... We have been getting out - this past couple days went on a bike outing to the coast again - last weekend19 miles from Los Gatos to San Jose along the Los Gatos Creek trail. Pics of the coast - we biked up on the top of the cliff then walked down to the beach - we had the beach all to ourselves - this is where we stopped to rest and then headed back. It was quite a workout - not the paved path we had on other bike trails. It was a dirt path between tire tracks, grass, high weeds, nettles (O my), to rocks along RR tracks, but the view was amazing. I never get tired of the coastal views. My speedometer needs a new battery but I think we did around 16-17 miles round trip.
This is how we celebrated 38 years of marriage. I would never have guessed 38 years ago we would be doing this. We are in such better shape than we were even 5-6 years ago.
It seems sometimes I am so wore out from working and fun stuff - the exercise is lacking on half the days. Yea I'll get it together- I have been walking more in the nice weather - but when it gets too hot - I'm done, and summer is just beginning.
Sounds like I am complaining or making excuses doesn't it? I just need to get back to that consistency I know - on the diet and exercise. I tried the zig zag (calorie cycling) I do have trouble planning higher calorie days - and may be getting too low calories on the low days. The highs may be too high and the lows too low ????? I just sort of let things happen within range - o well...
I am maintaining well though
