Iím starting a fresh week. I didnít actually get around to weighing in this weekend. I realize itís all just excuses to blame the week I had and the fact that I was afraid to weigh in after a week of no exercise. But itís the truth that I just didnít feel in the ďweight-loseĒ frame of mind this weekend. I did notice, as I got dressed for work, that I look thinner; and if *I* can see the weight lose I must be doing something right.
As for this week, my knee still hurts and while my neck is much better itís still a little sore. But Iím literally back in the saddle again, my new bike is great (especially now that Iíve replaced the bone bruising factory issue seat with my old padded comfy seat).
Itís crazy but true, if you fall off, you need to get right back on. It took me a week to get a proper replacement bike and that first ride I felt so nervous and cautious. Iíve been riding a bike every day for over 4 years, and after one accident I was back to feeling like a beginner. But itís been a couple of days and Iíve put it through all the paces, the big hill, the trip to the grocery store, and this morning the commute to work; so Iím feeling much more comfortable on it. Iíll be back to racing randoms in spandex any day now.
