I can ride a bike again!

Thursday, March 15, 2012

I rode my bike for at least an hour today. I can't remember exactly when I began. I practiced turning in a parking lot and then rode around the park. I still had to walk the bike the narrow parts of the paved path but I managed to do well for only my fourth or so try since childhood. I am now filtering some water to drink while I type this. I am so thirsty but soda doesn't work when I am very thirsty. I managed to remember that the breaks were on the handle bars the whole time. (No backwords pettling today) I have also walked a lot this week. I walked home from work once and part of the way home another day.
But, I can't seem to do the eating part. I can go for a few days and then I binge. I love cold sweets such as ice cream. Sometimes, fruit cocktail is a good substitute but sooner or later I WANT ICE CREAM. Sometimes I can limit it to half a cup. Other times, it is two cups. Grrr.

    Baby Tuxxy has a good idea. I make ice creamish milk shakes. I use protein powder (I get at Walmart), a little splenda and ice cubes to make thick. I really like it = now my grandchild doesn't think it is a milk shake, but I have some every night.

Great going on your bike! I need to get mine back out from the winter.

    That is fantastic that you are back on your bike and enjoying yourself while you are exercising. I can't wait to get my bike out and ready to ride again. Have a great weekend.

    Way to go getting your exercise in! Something you might want to try is getting bananas and freezing them(peel them first and store in a freezer tight container),
you can blend them without added sugar and have instant banana ice cream. Another thing I like to do is freeze those fruit cups that have 100% juice instead of sugar, then blending them with a little 2% milk, if you adjust the milk just right, you have really good ice cream without a lot of calories!

I slept in for like forever today. When I finally got out of bed, I had the biggest grin on my face. I grinned all through the shower. I just love to sleep in. I am wondering if I should schedule one day a week to be the day that I live like my cat, sleep in and stay home all day. I fixed one of my drawers. It looks rather stupid because I couldn't get the handle back on. I just put the nail there as my handle. (I should have put the handle on and then nailed that board to the rest of the drawer but I didn't realize that was the way to do it. I almost got my dresser's drawers to have handles again but the handles that I bought was not quite the right size. (Thank God that I have a hard ware store within walking distance of my home.) I will have to return the two handles and buy two slightly longer ones. I wanted to take the trash out and recyclables which I haven't done yet with the two little projects.

    If sleeping in can bring that much happiness I think carving out a day a week for that is a wonderful idea. I wish sleeping in made me feel like that. I hope you have a great weekend.

dreams for 2012

Monday, January 02, 2012

I have been daydreaming about what I wish would happen in 2012. I hesitate to call these resolutions or goals because I will probably fail them as I usually do.
1. I want to get paid once for my writing this year.
2. Continue to expand viewership of my blog.
3. Interview one person and write about it on my other blog.
4. Lose thirty pounds in time for my 40th birthday. (I doubt that I will do this one even more than the others)
5. Post a picture a month on the photo team here at sparkPeople.

Why do I want to do these thing?
I want to become a writer who blesses others with the message of God's love. I guess that losing weight would make me healthier. All though, it seems weird that all of my physical always come back fine. Maybe, it wouldn't help me at all but my body hates that I cram sweets in it too much. It whines at me sometimes (I will not go into details on how it complains right now). I don't want to get old and have no one there for me. I remember my grandma standing at my great aunt's funeral talking about everyone has left me. I don't to be the last one of my generation to die. But, I don't want to be the first in my generation to die either. I am starting to get to old to have kids and don't even have a husband. I wish I could have a family sometime in 2012. I still feel a little like a third wheel when I visit my sister and her family. I know that they are my family too but at the same time they are not. (I wanted this post to be a positive one) If twenty years from now is like now-God help me. Is it the long-term nature of eating healthy that makes it so hard? Maybe a person needs to reason to want to live to get old. I love to write but I fear that I will never succeed at this dream.
My cat, Puffers, is very cute. She likes to sit on the table by the stove and watch me cook.

    Adorable cat! I myself have no children and though I do have a husband, he is 7 years older than me and doesn't take care of himself, so I totally understand how you feel. At the same time, however, I want to be there for all my nieces and nephews whenever they may need me.

I have started pondering the idea of buying a tricycle. I don't know much about them. Is there anyone here that could tell me if they like riding a tricycle? Are they easy to ride to work? Grocery shopping? Can someone ride them during the winter? At night? How much stuff can you put in the basket that is on some tricycles? Do they fit on a regular bike rack if you need to leave it outside of the store?


I walked a lot today!

Thursday, September 15, 2011

I found one my state's bicycle trails and walked it for a long time. I wasn't able to map it to well because i was a little lost on how I found it. But, I took the route home and doubled it to account for walking out to that spot and got around 4.5 miles. I am pretty sure that I did more than that though. I am going to walk that trail some other days too. :) It was fun and pretty too.
