It's been a MONTH since I wrote some nonsense, so here we go.
I've totally fell off the wagon. I used to bike to get salads for dinner, and since that pattern has changed, so have my eating habits. And I stopped doing much of exercising or doing anything right.
So, I've made some re-starts, and I'm getting back on path.
COLLEGEGIRL had sent me a challenge to do a 5K, and another one of my friends did, too. So I'm going to start getting ready for that.
For Christmas, I got a resistance wheel so I can 'ride' my bike indoors. Woot! That's going to be fun, and should keep my mild skills at a level other than 0.
I signed up to get the application for a bike ride across the width of Michigan. The applications get mailed out over the next few weeks, and only the first 700 get accepted. So I hope I get in there. (I missed the first bike ride of the year. They have a ride in my home town called The First Dozen on new year's day. I totally forgot about it till about 1pm on that day. I was a little grumpy, but it was only 20-ish degrees out anyway.)
And speaking of temps, another great gift I got was an outdoor thermometer. I can look outside and get a quick temp check to prepare for that day's biking (or whatever) adventure. Woo hoo!
Hoping you all have the best new year as can be!
