  • Great Ride and Great Memories

    7/20/2014 1:18:43 AM, by DDOORN

    Today's ride paled in many ways to the wonderful ride back in October 2011, but there were enough parallels to bring back the memories and yet to enjoy the people with whom I was riding today. Here is the route for today's ride: ridewithgps.com/trips/30

  • Michigan: The Rest of Vacation & Some Archeology...

    7/18/2014 10:58:57 PM, by DDOORN

    This was a most challenging week of re-entry after vacation, hence a delay in posting the "rest of the story"...! I was truly blessed with some of the BEST weather during my time in Michigan, especially on the important days of our reunion and our party for my father's 80th birthday. Here ... Read more

  • Rag In The Bag: Michigan Travels!

    7/10/2014 6:19:25 PM, by DDOORN

    So in line with the shedding of the "bubble" I've been enjoying tossing a rag in the bag (pannier), hopping on my bike and reconnecting with new friends, old friends and family out Michigan way. After spending the night with a very close friend with whom we shared our MSW years at Michigan Stat... Read more

  • I thought plateaus happened LATER!

    7/4/2014 8:39:12 AM, by DOKEYOKEY

    For five days I have been on track with food tracking, staying within calorie range (between 1,200 and 1,500 per day) and doing modest aerobic exercise every day and strength training (to “failure”) almost every day. Result? ZERO movement on the numbers on the scale, and I mean NADA. And, no, I ... Read more

  • Day 3 on Track: Update

    7/2/2014 9:21:54 AM, by DOKEYOKEY

    Did 3 (count' em) days of staying on track with food (tracking and staying within limits). Have I lost an ounce? Answer: No. Darn this middle-aged-ness! Nothing for it but to continue. I've been a bit of an exercise slacker because of the heat and humidity, but maybe I'll treat myself ... Read more

Four will be a visit to Sacramento area friends. Five? ... Read more

    6/25/2014 10:09:58 PM, by VALERIEMAHA

    I'm entering the near past, not to dwell there (of course), but simply to begin to bring you up to the present. I left off in Blog #7 having arrived to San Diego to reunite with my soul sister, Diana and continue up the coast to San Francisco to rendezvous with Dawn and other friends. Dawn, Diana ...
