The unexpected bike ride
Tuesday, July 19, 2011
This is exactly, exactly what I was looking forward to when I started improving my health last fall. It was getting close to lunch time and I had about two hours to kill while something in the laboratory incubated, so I just decided to ignore the hot temperatures outside and go for a little bike ride. I rode east about six miles from my work until I found the sea shore in South Boston. I had no idea this little gem was even there (Castle Island). I found a quick (low carb) lunch and rode back to work. Thirteen miles and I am not tired.
I did not incorporate exercise as an important part of my weight loss routine. But, once I had lost some weight, I did incorporate exercise as something fun to do. As you become healthier, I hope you can find more fun things to do that maybe you couldn't have done just months before.
