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 it is about 1/4 of a mile for the climb.  Needless to say, I have come a long way from last year to today.   Continue reading

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 the fact that I forgot to turn my Strava App on, and I also forgot my polar at home.  It sucks because this time I didn’t take my usual 10-15 min break.  Other than just pulling over to let someone pass or grabbing water,  I didn’t stop for long at all.  I know I probably beat my personal record today.  Oh well!  There’s always next time!

A Couples’ Ride

My husband emailed me this video today and I laughed practically the whole time while I watched it.   Why?  Because it reminded me so much of our earlier rides together when I was just learning.  Don’t get me wrong, I am still learning, but I have come a long way from last year.  Whoever made the video reversed the roles.  Probably to keep a lot of arguments from breaking out with couples.  LOL

 

 

 

 

 

Trying To Find Balance

I’m still trying to figure out how to do everything that I feel I need to do, and want to do during this part of my journey in life. Do you ever wonder how everyone seems to have it together, but you? I see people posting on Instagram and Facebook everything they do, and it makes me feel a little frustrated. How do they do it all???? Continue reading

The 21 DSD is Complete

So, I did it!  I completed my 21 Day Sugar Detox last Sunday, January 24th!  Doing this detox was exactly what my body needed.  For the past year I’ve been struggling with lack of sleep, but by the end of the first week, I noticed that I was sleeping more soundly.

Not only was I sleeping better, but I was having the craziest dreams.  Continue reading

Self-Sabotage?

Right about now I am wondering when it is that I am going to truly get my crap together when it comes to making right choices?  I am so tired of going down the same beaten path I’ve been down so many times before.  I will be doing so good, and then for whatever reason, I start messing up.  It’s a pattern and I see it, yet I don’t know how to stop it and I don’t know why I do it.  I have heard of self- sabotaging and sometimes I wonder if this is what I am doing?  I briefly mentioned this to my husband and he didn’t really understand where I was coming from, and how can I explain it to him when I don’t even know?   Continue reading

Finding Balance Is Difficult

Just when I thought I was getting back into the swing of my workouts, a wrench got threw into the program.  What wrench, you may ask?  For me, the wrench is working a different schedule then my husband.

You see, usually I come straight home from work, change my clothes, let the dogs out, and then head to the gym.  I like for my workouts to be done by 6:30 at the latest, and that is only when I take a group class at the gym.
