Day 5 Bike Ride

A bike ride with fellow Chick Connects Member and friend Kaethe this morning.  It felt really good and I actually worked up a bit of a sweat. 
I guess you could say I was "glistening."  lol
I've decided that I may need an odometer for Blade since I have no clue how far we rode.  Gone for over an hour and feeling good and I think dear hubs was a little impressed!

I'm gonna RIDE!

David Dear put new tires on my bike today.
Weather permitting, I'm going for a ride in the morning.
Another ride with a Chick friend in the evening. Can't wait!

The Bike

My special bike came to me from my bff.  We traveled
3000+ miles last summer  in her vintage trailer Sweet Pea
with her '52 Schwinn and my early 80's Spalding Blade
hooked on the back.  So fun to hop on the bikes and ride. 
Yes, you don't forget how to ride, but I've got to say...
it's a bit scary after all these years. 
Look out!
I'm so ready to RIDE but a flat tire and possibly tire replacement has to happen first. At least Blade doesn't have to go back to the bike hospital...dear hubs will take care of it and I'm ever so
hopeful that it's this weekend. 
Pictures coming soon.

A Walk Does the Heart Good

Headed out the door with Lincoln and Hendrix.  We must have walked at least a mile and ended up at the neighborhood school.  New play equipment kept us busy for quite a while.   
 Such beauty in the neighborhood today.
A yard brimming with Zinnias right around the corner.
Good thing we raised 3 sons already, so I'm used to how "active" they are.

Hendrix is a climber too.
Peek a Boo!

Inquiring minds want to know...
what's that noise behind the arborvitaes?
Boys loved the climbing equipment.

Monday Madness!

Who else weighs in on Monday's?  I've tried many different days but I'm thinking Sunday works better for me. This Monday was super busy and I almost forgot to weigh.  By the time I did, I had my shake and a my first round of H2O.  Did that add to my staying the same this week?  hmmm...or was it the 3 pieces of Lemon Meringue Pie the day before?  I thought with my 3 vigorous days of exercise I was golden.  Not so....let's see what happens with a Sunday weigh in.

3 Days and Counting

3 days of movement!  Two days of walking with friends and one day of dance.  Harder to get my bum out the door for Line Dancing Class, but I do have fun once I'm there. Spending time with friends is a bonus!  Dancing is just way out there for me, but maybe with a little more practice, I'll actually look forward to it. And since I may be the youngest one in the class...just maybe the old timers can teach me a thing or two. :-)  If you are 50+ check out the Senior Center in your area. 
You may be dancing before you know it too!

My morning just got better.

I struggle with eating.  I get that.  While I overeat, I don't eat often enough and am more likely to go through the day without eating until mid afternoon.  That starts the spiral of overeating late in the day.  Not good.  I know that.  So I'm back to drinking a breakfast shake first thing in the morning.  It's a better fit for me and then I eat
every 3 hours or so...
The weekend is a little harder.  I may try doing 2 shakes
over the weekend.
I'm back to Week 1 and down 4 lbs.
