Finally home! After 12 days of business travel for conferences in Orlando and Denver I am HOME!!! It felt great to sleep in my own bed last night. This morning the scale confirmed what I was hoping was true - my dedication to exercise and healthy eating while out of town made a difference - down 3lbs (even with water weight from flying!!)
It was 70 degrees here today so I decided that it was great day to get back in the saddle. I only cycled outside 1 day this winter (January thaw) and I was excited to put on my new cycling jersey and head to the hills. Usually I cycle with my husband but he was tied up in a project all day, so I loaded up my cycle on the jeep and drove into the foothills of Pennsylvania to a place I always enjoy. Felt really good! It is amazing how much lighter I feel! Even without being in "cycling shape" climbing the hills came sooooo much easier - I felt like I had an extra 3-4 gears. I can't wait to see how fast I will be flying this spring after I have more rides under me.
Spring forward today- oh yeah I did!!!!
