Fell off the wagon

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

Hard as I tried, I had fallen off the spark wagon. Now I've gained a few pounds and want to get back on the wagon. So here I am posting trying to make myself honest again

    You can't change the past so leave it behind where it belongs and focus on today only! Then tomorrow do the same thing and before you know it you will be right back where you want to be! Good luck to you.

Turning 50 and Riding a bike

Sunday, June 06, 2010

I keep talking about turning 50, like the world will end. This year in a few short months I feel like I will hit a big milestone. I don't know what is ahead of me only what I have accomplished. I work full time and wish I didn't have to I feel like I have no time to myself and want to do everything, hence the riding the bike. I really wanted a bike, something I could use for exercise, but also, maybe give me a sense of freedom. So, I bought a bike, a shiny Schwinn with 21 speeds that I still don't know what to do with. So, I have this bike and I get on and I am really, really wobbly. Lets face it I haven't rode a bike since I was a kid, and now I really don't remember riding a bike. So I ride around the block, once, not too bad. My bike riding is still limited my development but I am getting better. I rode 2.5 miles tonight and other than my butt being sore from being on the bike, I feel good, not so wobbly now and I feel free.

    I've been wanting a Bike, use to ride all the time. Maybe I'll get one for my 50th birtday, coming up in about 5 months.
Sounds like so much fun.

Hope you have a great time riding.

    i thought about a jump rope, then a weighted hula hoop. My husband swears the bike will sit in the garage, I have to prove him wrong. Good luck with your jump rope

    Hang in there. You really never forget how to ride a bike. Sometimes our balance is a little off but make slight adjustments and you'll be fine. Enjoy reaching a milestone because there are so many who are passing on before they reach 50. Each day is a blessing from God.
