For the past year, I would often think about getting back into motorcycling. but didn't know if I wanted to invest in another one or not. I grew up riding my cousins dirt bike a little bit, but mostly sat on the back. My mom would never let me buy a motorcycle, but she did... Continue Reading →
Never Too Old
I am so excited about today's ride! I finally rode the hardest trail for the first time this year. I rode it a few times last year, but wanted to get stronger in my legs before trying it again this year, because it starts off on steep climb that feels like it goes on forever! I believe...

First Time Riding Alone
I finally went mountain biking all by myself! Usually my husband goes with me, but he had to work late and the weather was perfect...so I took a chance and went. I had such an awesome time! I went at my own pace, and just truly enjoyed myself. The only downside to my ride was... Continue Reading →
The Fog Is Lifting
To say that this past month has been difficult would be an understatement because not only has it been hard physically, it has been even harder emotionally.

When I was in my thirties and first started out on my weight loss journey, I lived in Florida. There was a paved bicycle trail that went from one city to another, and a friend and I would ride it a few times a week for some exercise. My favorite part of the ride was... Continue Reading →
It Was Only Yesterday
This is me all day, every day! I swear it was only yesterday that I was riding down the road with my Mom and I wondered what I would be like at her age, and now...well now... I'm past that age! I think I was around 15 when that happened, so that would make her... Continue Reading →
Is This a Losing Battle?
I have always heard people make a remark that they are “fighting a losing battle.” Today, I think I understand this statement more then I want to. Trying to lose weight has been the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and as I get older it has become even harder. I work out with a trainer... Continue Reading →
Happy Birthday to Me!
This year for my birthday, I took matters into my own hands and ordered myself a birthday cake from Caroline’s Cakes. I have heard about her cakes for a long time, and decided it was high time that I try one. I needed to have my cake delivered to my granny’s house because of my... Continue Reading →
