50 Miler

Sunday, January 27, 2013      1 comments

Did a 52 miler on Saturday. It felt really good. My time wasn't too bad..4 hours but I still need to work on speeding it up. I need to knock down the time for when I ride a century. I ended up with 121.4 for last week. I just need to keep it up ... Read more

Productive Weekend & Some Advice for the Struggling

I ended up with a total of 89.5 miles for the three day weekend. My husband rode two of the rides with me. He usually rides behind me since I am a slower rider and he will stay in a higher gear even on the hills so that he still gets a good work... Read more

Thank God, I was called for a full time teaching position the end of August 2012, but it was a bittersweet victory. The school I am teaching at does not get out until 415. I usually cannot get out of the door until 500. It is a 40 minute drive h... Read more

End of Week

Friday, August 10, 2012      1 comments

Made it through the week. Lost 2 pounds, which is really good considering I am on the lower end of my journey. I know the closer I get the harder it is going to be and the slower it will go. I just can't give up and have to ensure that I at leas... Read more

Trying to keep going. I have been really tired today. Did strength training and walked for 2.3 miles. I am still on my 3 pound plateau. I figured I would try to tone some up while in this plateau. I need to tone bad. I have been working so much ... Read more

It wasn't a bad day today. It started out with me weighing and putting on .9 lbs. I am still a plateau of a 3 pound range. Tried to get DH to work out with me tonight since he was home but it did not work. He wants to lose weight but with his lo... Read more

End of Hiatus

It has been awhile since my last post. Life has taken its toll once again, Mom and wife duties, going to school and everything else. About a month ago, our niece finally got to go home to her parents. It was a hard 9 months but we got through ... Read more

It has been a week since my last update. It has been a crazy week since going back to work from Spring Break. Put on another pound this week with the weighing once a week thing. So out the window it goes. When I am trying to loose, I guess ... Read more

Looks Like It's the Small Route

Wednesday, March 14, 2012      1 comments

Drove the Fiesta Wildflower 40 mile route today. It looks like it is going to be the shorter 23 mile route. With the rolling hills, I don't think I would be up for the 40 mile. I do not think it would be a matter of completing it but completing ... Read more
