It is almost midnight...just wanted to check in. Rode my bike 8.3 miles this A.M. I had a zillion chores to do & was very tempted to "pass" on riding, but decided that I needed to get back in the groove. I haven't blogged in over a week & I did ... Read more

Am sleeping better & no more Ambien (so thankful), of course I still take Benadryl at night for my allergies & I have taken some Ny-Quil too. It is 10-11% alcohol & it seems to be doing the trick. I have been trying to get to bed about the same ... Read more

Yes, I rode in that crazy rain this morning. Instead of wearing my poncho with a belt, I decided to use a large trash bag with cut out holes, figuring that it would not blow as much as my poncho...not that brilliant of an idea...I still got plen... Read more

My husband would never admit it, but he IS a competitor. He started this recumbent bike madness (& I'm glad that he did...) sometimes we ride together but not always. After he or we get home, he always "announces" how many miles he rode, his top... Read more

I ride my recumbent bike 5-6 miles almost every morning. It never fails, that when I stop to drink some water, I put the parking break ON...& then when I get back on the road, I forget to release the brake & trust me, it really holds me back. I ... Read more

Did Better Today...
Wednesday, July 10, 2013      4 comments

I didn't get any exercise in today, but I made much better food choices & had many, many glasses/bottles of water. I tracked my food & I was below all my ranges. That pleased me, after my horrific eating yesterday. It's getting late & one of my ... Read more
