I went for my first bike ride of the year today!

Guess what I did today?!?!?! I know you can probably guess from the title of this post, but I am just so freaking excited. Last year about 2 weeks before my surgery Rick and I went out and bought new bikes, I had tried riding that week but with being on the pre-op diet and the August heat, I didn't last long. Today was a different story though. We dug the bikes out of storage, filled the tires with air, put them on the bike rack and off we went to find this mystical bike trail we've been reading about. It was about 2 miles down the road from our house, and it was like finding a hidden jewel. I can't believe this has been so close to me and I have never taken advantage of it. What the trail is, is a 6.6 mile trail that used to be a railroad back in the day. A few years ago the town took it over, and paved it and made it into a wonderful little bike way. It was such an awesome smooth ride with no traffic, the scenery was great and I even found a bunny!!! I am so thrilled, and pumped up on endorphins. I really hope we can start biking more, we don't have any excuse not too now. Here is a pic Rick took of me at the end of the trail...right after I found the bunny and was super excited haha.




I hope everyone had fantastic weekends. Last night my best friend and I went to Jack Johnson concert, it was terrific! I love his surfer style music, its so happy that you can't help but smile and dance when you hear it. This morning I went to the beach for a few hours before going on the bike ride. I was feeling a little daring and lifted up my tankini top to tan my tummy and got a little too crispy, oops!

Tomorrow is my first appointment with my nurse practitioner since March. I think I have decided to ask for a .1 fill. Just a little tweak to get my weight moving again. I will let you all know how that goes tomorrow.

CHALLENGERS: Don't forget weights are due today!!! xxoo

  9. Hey, I just "liked" Jack Johnson on FB today!

    Doesn't your butt hurt? We rode bikes to the fireworks on the 4th and my tush was all that was sore the next day. I know it takes getting used to.
