Two more rides in the book! Yesterday the hubs and I took a shorter ride, but a faster ride. We rode 4.46 miles in 27 minutes. We are planning on doing some shorter rides like that to help us pick up the pace once or twice a week. Today we rode 8.25 miles in 55 minutes. It was so cold that we both were having a hard time getting our muscles to really cooperate, but we stuck it out even if it wasn't a fast ride.

Yesterday was probably the best day we have had homeschooling. The kids finished quickly and we were able to have some fun time instead of me trying to motivate them to get everything done. All in all yesterday was a good day and I am hoping that we will be able to continue that trend today.

Unfortunately I am having some trouble saying no to the pizza and soda, but I am reducing the portion sizes so instead of feeling like a failure I am taking it as a victory, because I am still reducing the calories I would normally take in and I am exercising.

OK that's all I have for now tata

    emoticon Awesome job on the bike! And yes, just having a smaller portion with that pizza is definitely a victory! I had pizza last night and can't believe how I said no to more- not an easy feat with that cheesy treat!

    That is the way to bike.

Also, you are doing the right thing with the pizza and soda. Take a juice glass for the soda. and the pizza - make sure you take a napkin or paper towel to it for the grease before eating.
