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.
