Biking it to Work

Tuesday, March 09, 2010

Today I rode my motorcycle to work, a little brisk, but the ride home should be fantastic, hoping it will get to 60 degrees today. Loving the sunshine. I googled this morning to find how many calories motorcycle riding burns and surprisingly...anywhere from 120 - 170 calories per hour (depending on your body weight). Wow, a new exercise, and believe me sometimes it feels like strenuous exercise. Bring on more warm weather, I need to burn a few more "riding calories".

    I haven't rode a motercylce in years. Of course I wasn't the driver, I was just the rider. Don't think that burns as much. We are in the thirties here. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. You will reach 100 pounds lost as you keep doing the right things and changing your lifestyle. You will realize your dreams. I lost the 100 pounds and now I have to finish the job.

Grouchy Monday

Monday, March 08, 2010

I was rudely awaked at 3:30 a.m. with my Chihuahua licking my nose to go outside to potty. Sheesh, I was in the middle of a good dream and couldn't finish it, even after I went back to bed - Arrrgggh - I hate it when that happens. Went to get my teenager up for school, she was snippy and nippy and snoty about having to get up - sheesh, what a grouch. Seems like everyone was just plain grumpy and grouchy. But I have not let that spoil my day. I determine the kind of attitude I am going to have for the day. I just put a smile on my face and a song in my heart. Looking forward to a productive day. emoticon

    Bummer about the way your day started, but it is so true that we determine our own attitude and Im glad you were able to turn it around. We have been gray and drizzly today which put me in a good doesnt happen too often out this way so usually enjoy it when it does. Hope you have a great rest of the week!

    Sounds like my morning only the chihuahua was my hubby getting up for work and the teenager in this case is my 6 yr old son. He too didn't want to get up. I think I need to adopt your attitude, smile on my face and song in my heart!!

Woman of Leisure

Today is gonna be great. Spending all day with my best friend. Dropping motorcycle off for a tune up to get ready for lovely riding weather tomorrow. Hit the mall with a few coupons for freebies from Victoria's Secret and Bath and Body Works, lunch at our favorite salad bar spot (Ruby Tuesdays), topping it off with a trip to the gym. Then it's back to reality by dinner hour - making turkey breast and a new SP recipe (maple-mashed sweet potatos), with a side of fresh broccoli. Hope new recipe is as good as it sounds. Nothing like a day goofing off with your best friend to brighten your mood and lift your spirits. Girls Rock !


The Gift of Time

Thursday, March 04, 2010

A lady at the gym approached me last night and asked if I wanted her last 15 minutes on the eliptical, she was finished and wondered if I would like to hop on. Wow, such a nice surprise for someone to be nice at the gym, usually people are standing there pacing and watching their watch and giving you the evil eye stare-down waiting for you to hurry up and get off the equipment. A breath of fresh air for a change. So thanks to this nice girl, I got an extra 15 minutes added onto my workout. A random act of kindness, let us all be mindful of the gift of time. (I know the last sentence sounds kinda corny, but so true)

    Not corny at all. One seemingly small act on our part can affect many others. You got 15 min gift. It made you feel good. You shared that good feeling w/ us and on and on it goes. We all need the reminder to slow down and take the time. Thank you for the reminder.
