I am back on the "Diet" (LifeStyle change) band-wagon once again. I sure is a struggle trying to stay on this wagon with so many things trying, and succeeding, to throw me off. I have never lost sight of what I need to do and the goals I am trying to reach. I get side-tracked at times but I remember the guidelines I need to follow.
I am planning another motorcycle road-trip starting May 8th that will take me, for the 4th year, on the Run For The Wall annual event from Portland to Los Angeles to Washington DC. But...I will not be able to make it to DC this year since I have to be back home by the 3rd week of May or our 25th wedding anniversary. For the past 3 years I have called my wife while on the road-trip from Louisiana wishing her a happy anniversary. She has been very tolerant of my trips, so I need to comply with her request, plus I want to be here for our "special" 25th anniversary.
I have planned my route so that I will still get in about 4800 miles. This trip will take me to Lake Tahoe East shore, Carson City NV. to Bishop, CA through Death Valley where I will visit Scotty's Castle, Big Bear Lake CA Crestline, CA and on into Los Angeles area. After my portion of the Run For The Wall I will return back via the California Hwy 1 coast route.
The trouble I have on these trips is that my food choices suffer and throws me off the diet band-wagon. I will try and not let that happen this year.
I should think about what I should take along and what I should leave home.
