Nope, haven't done it before but a number of our bike club members have and they speak very highly of the ride. It's been "on my list" and I figure I'm past due for checking it off! :-)

Hoping to come up with a simple way to get to the start and back home afterward...which may pose a challenge!

My workouts are pretty well locked in, thankfully!

BUT: my food has gotten out of hand and since the New Year I have doubled down on getting my food "right" so I have as little extra ballast as possible come cycling season this year! Check out my latest blogs for details on my getting-back-to-basics with food.

I've set my sights on completing the 500 Miles Across NY known as the FANY ride:

www.fanyride.com

That's 70-80 miles a day for a week at the end of July, likely the hottest part of summer, camping overnights...going from the Niagara area to the Saratoga area.

I wanna haul NO MORE extra pounds than necessary!

I'd LOVE to have company if anyone wants to join in the fun! :-)

I'm just going to second Bev's goals and maybe we can do some of those bike miles together!
The sewing room clean-out...peals of laughter for me, as I could be buried in my fabric and who would find me? A U.F.O. ...I might be able to finish an unfinished sewing project....maybe.
Weight loss...2 lbs a week is a good goal!
January 2014 here I come!

Here it is, the end of an old year and time to think about what we would like to accomplish in the new one. I have been challenged with some health issues these last 2 months and that has changed my expectations. I had my gall bladder removed in November and found out I have liver disease. I have had to drastically change my diet and exercise routines and was cautioned not to lose more than 2 pounds a week due to possible worsening of the liver condition, so weight loss will be slower than I had hoped. I think I have reached a new equilibrium, we shall see.

Once again, instead of yearly resolutions, I will be setting yearly goals and making monthly resolutions that lead to my goals.

This year I would like to lose 30 pounds, ride my bike 5000 miles, finish reorganizing my sewing room, finish one UFO a month, and finish scanning my non digital photographs ( no easy feat as I take thousands a year and have 20 years worth ).

My January resolution/goals are:

1) continue to adjust my diet and lose 3 pounds
2) ride my bike 150 miles
3) finish my friends quilt and get it back to her.

Every one is welcome to set your own goals and join me in my yearly quest for better health.

beverly

One Day at a Time:
1) 10,000 steps daily
2) fruit & vegie at every meal and log
3) aerobic or strength train every day
4) 7 hours sleep daily
5) check in with SP daily

My resolutions for Nov are
1) track nutrition daily
2) 30 min of exercise daily
3) finish cleaning sewing room
