I've been on and off the nutrition tracker and of course paying for this by muddling along with my weight. Feeling a bit down on myself today, but somewhat more motivated after meeting with my fellow bike club members at today's annual meeting as so MANY of them are looking SO slim & trim here in the dead of winter! Fellas with bellies-no-more! And here I am doing same-old, same-old...argh!
Here I am chatting with everybody about my plans to do a multi-day cycling tour...yet feeling like a FRAUD with these extra pounds!
Gotta put the hammer to it and get as serious with the nutrition tracker and accountability with my food choices as I am with my workouts and exercise!
Spring Ain't Here Yet
...but it will be before you know it and I want to be ready to SPRING ahead and celebrate hitting the road again on my bike!
I gathered lots of information on my idea of cycling to the Grand Canyon of Pennsylvania as well as Plan B of heading north to the 1,000 Island area bordering Canada up north of the Adirondacks and even a smidgen of info on the rail-trail that connects Pittsburgh to Washington DC.
I also signed up for my third or fourth time at the Great Finger Lakes Bicycle Tour up around Watkins Glen and Keuka Lake wine country! This is a SUPER DEAL if anyone is interested in joining the fun! Our bike club sponsors and organizes this and offers a weekend of great cycling in June for only $75 (including meals!) if you camp, $85 if you stay in a cabin...which is always my choice...no camping for me, thank you...lol! I'll probably haul my guitar along for some fun.
Here is the link to more info and the form if you want to sign up for this wonderful weekend of fun:
It would be so cool to have share this with some members of my SparkFamily!
Updated thoughts: Thx everybody for your support. I've always been my own worst critic. While I *know* I'm not a fraud...sometimes I get to feeling that way when it seems like there is such a disconnect between grand plans and aspirations of cycling the globe over yet not shedding the pounds that would truly free myself up to do so!
