Today will be the last warm day before the bottom drops out. But I'm not putting my bike away for the winter; last winter, I found a few opportunities to get out on decent days, so I'm holding out hope that it will happen again this winter! Also, I am better at dressing for cold-weather rides, so I'm optimistic that I will still get a few rides in.
I hate talking about winter, but like it or not, it's coming, and I have to be ready. My options will be walks or runs (depending on my foot), indoor exercise at the gym, and snowshoeing. Dan got me a pair of snowshoes last Christmas, and then it only snowed 2x all winter! So yeah, I'm hoping for a lot more snow! Sorry to those of you who drive cars. ;) But seriously, I love snowshoeing. It is so fun, I could do it for hours and hours. And yet you burn calories! So I'm looking forward to that. There is a small hiking trail right behind my kids' school. If I go on a long excursion, I will have to go to a bigger place, and there is one a few miles north of here. I've been dreading winter ever since the water park closed, but now I'm getting kind of excited to go snowshoeing.
Yesterday was a bad day of eating. I rode 8 miles on my bike, but I had way too many cookies in the evening. There are still some cookies on the counter this morning, and I just want them to GO AWAY! I hope my kids wake up soon so I can feed them cookies for b-fast. I'm a terrible mother. :/
