Biking again today, hooray!

Saturday, March 03, 2012

I am still excited about biking with my brother. He's fun to be with and he's funny. We'll take my niece today also. It was too windy to bike yesterday--20mph plus. I went to the store and nearly got blown off the parking lot. He biked 12 yesterday though. I'm glad I went spinning with my son-in-law early in the morning. My promise again is to take pictures to show y'all. We have such wonderful bike trails. Thanks, Judge Buddy Villines!

    You are so fortunate to have biking buddies. I mostly ride alone. I do have some friends, but since we are all a little older, the cold weather, cataract surgery, etc. thins the group:) But I do enjoy it a lot. And yoga is the perfect antidote for those stiff muscles.

Enjoy the wind in your face and try not to get blown over:)

I like being able to get back into smaller clothes!

Thursday, March 01, 2012

I want to ask about this, but at the same time, I hope no one here knows me.
I love getting into smaller sized clothes and am relieved that I saved a few pair of capris when I gave away all pants that were too small. This is true especially since one friend who had gotten the bag of pants accidentally threw the whole bag into the recycle bin at the recycle center. All the clothes were very gently used.
I've spent more time today than I should, I suppose, trying on pants that were too small and going to the next room to look at the view from the back. I am way too old to be doing this, but it was very nice.
I'd love to have your honest feedback.

    I agree with Nikki above that you are never too old to want look good. How great does that feel to know you are making progress and fitting into smaller clothes. I am currently in the process of going through my closet and weeding out what I can. I am starting on my 2nd "garbage" bag to throw out and it feels great. The good news is I saved capris and jeans I couldn't previously get into (gently used as you say) and they are fitting me great now. Actuall I am looking pretty great in them. I am retired now so I don't need all the work clothes I had so I'm tossing some size 12 - lovely lined slacks - but I can't get in them and I haven't worn them for a few years so out they go. The other thing is since I'm retired I don't have the disposable income I had to buy more so I'm trying to sort through everything first and take stock so I know what I really do need. It's a lot of work but I think it will pay off. And it is a motivational thing because as you fit into the smaller sizes it motivates you to stay with the program. emoticon

  no one is too old to feel good about the way they look! lately i've been buying pants somewhere less expensive so i don't feel bad donating them, old navy has jeans for 19 dollars and you get a coupon for three more pairs, hopefully i'm buying a smaller size each month!

biking on the River Trail

Monday, February 27, 2012

Should've taken a picture. Didn't think of it. Serviceberries are coming into bloom and are very pretty.
[Serviceberries have been documented at least since Colonial times. Serviceberries are one of the first plants to bloom in the spring, with beautiful white flowers blooming shortly after the ground thaws. Serviceberries are native to every U.S. state except Hawaii. Technically serviceberries are related to the apple, but they have more of a sweet berry taste. Serviceberries ripen in June in temperate areas and may ripen as late as mid July in more northern states. In some places serviceberries are called juneberries, because they often ripen in early June. The fruit is only about an inch long and turns a deep purple when ripe, with vestiges of the flower's blooms still on the ends of the fruit.

I rode only 10 miles but my brother rode 16, so he's happy. It was his second time on his new hybrid. He hasn't ridden in years, so I think I'm encouraging him.
Lovely day and not much wind. So bright and sunshiny. Love it!

long walk

Sunday, February 05, 2012

I didn't realize until just now that I could add a photo. I would have taken one. Our walking/biking trails here in LR are incredible. We walked 7 miles again today--did 7 yesterday. My friends signed up to walk or run the half marathon in March. I did not sign up on time and missed out. I may just volunteer to help with the marathon though.
I'm taking off from exercise (walking) tomorrow, but I know I need to start lifting again.
Let me just say that it is wonderful being retired. Those of you working--I say give it the best 41 years of your life before you get jealous of me.
Have a great week!
