I did a nice 40 mile ride this morning. I explored some new roads and generally got In a nice relaxing ride early. I tend to ride only early in the day in order to beat the heat.

With all the riding I have been doing, I am pretty much maintaining weight, but it is getting time for me to get serious about tracking every thing (food, water) and not just my fitness minutes.

    Yep, I need to do a better job of tracking my food. I have gotten back up to 20 miles a day on the bike, but this stubborn 'injury' weight keeps hanging around.

    You make 40 miles sound like going out for lunch :) What kind of seat are you using? I know that's the one area of my bike where I could use an upgrade. Still using the stock seat and not sure whether to get a padded cover or a padded seat replacement.

    Tracking has helped me a LOT as I pursue better health. And, it's only tedious when you first start the tracking ~ as you add foods & mark them as a favorite, then they're just "one click away".

good for you on the bike ride! i haven't been riding for awhile now but will be getting back to it in the coming week.

hope you & your family have a fabulous weekend!

    Yeah, food tracking can be tedious. I try to set aside time on Sundays to plan out my menu for the upcoming week and set up my grocery shopping list at the same time.

    Nice! Tracking is good, once you've done it for a while, it's easier to eyeball how one fuels and to anticipate how to maximize your performance.
