I take my hat off to you that spend your days at home and are disciplined in your nutritional intake. I just find the temptations way too tempting. Have to leave the house more to tay away from the goodies. After yesterday's 2+ hours of hill rep... Read more

The intentions were good. I was to go to IHOP and follow it up with a long ride. Unfortunately, IHOP with the granddaughters turned out to be a culinary disaster. My long ride turned out to be a short ride due to a loose bike cassette. I weighed... Read more

Another great day of exercise and healthy eating. The ride was the most challenging, ever. Temperatures and wind made for uncomfortable toes and finger tips. When is the cold going to stop? HOOAAA!!... Read more

Overall, a good day yesterday. Did 30+ short hill repeats and ate healthy. Those hills just beat me up. One of these days I'm going to enjoy doing them. It's not much fun right now. HOOAAA!!... Read more

Have to be real careful. Falling into the eating trap. Too many cookies, too much garbage snacks. Have to work real hard at controlling the bad eating habits. On the good side, exercised vigorously for 2+ hours. HOOAAA!!... Read more

Did my long ride yesterday of 55 miles. Heavy winds made it challenging. Ate healthy and weighed in. Very happy to have stayed the same in spite of being a "bad boy" on several day. I'm indeed very lucky. HOOAAA!!... Read more

There was snow on the ground in San Antonio? The highways were closed. Schools were closed. Companies were closed. The mail was not delivered. But, the exercise had to get done, snow or no snow. So, we get on our bike and carefully did our 2+ ho... Read more

The conditions were again challenging with wind chill factor in the single digits. Did my bike ride, but let up on the healthy eating. Too much dead time makes for some pretty nasty food choices. Have to work on staying very busy. HOOAAA!!... Read more

I asked myself yesterday, how bad do you really want it? It was 21 degrees, with a 1 degree wind chill factor. No weather for normal beings to be out on their bike. But, who ever said I was normal? I put on my layers of clothing, got on my bike,... Read more
