Ok, I can't get my video to upload, so I will just have to type it out!

I have been super busy but my work offered us a deal for a local gym, 35 bucks a month and no contract and no sign up fees. I have also been a bit worried as to what I should do with myself with winter coming and I won't be able to get out on my bike.

I got a free hour with a personal trainer on Wednesday, it turned into a half hour because I was late but we talked and went through a few exercises that will help me.

I am super excited and can't wait to get started...it will have to be next week since this week is all but over and I work today and my nephew's birthday par-tay is tomorrow.

They have a pool and even jacuzzi and sauna, and the best thing is that it is on the bus route on the way to my work so transportation isn't too much of an issue.

  Be careful...Heat and pulsating water can raise heart rate and this can cause your blood sugar to lower.

I am pretty sure I have lost my ever loving mind.

I know I haven't been around but will update (most likely with a video) tomorrow (Wednesday)

Take care and love yourself,

    Awesome job. Funny, because this morning I spent two hours dancing with my kids in the kitchen in a makeshift dance party. Apparently the universe was suggesting congratulating you in dance worldwide (or at least, to PA)

Fall goal completed!

Wednesday, October 01, 2014

My goal was to be able to ride my bike to work, work my shift, and then be able to ride home.
I had to have this done before winter set in, here in northern Illinois, it is getting cold and when the snow comes, bike riding will be all but impossible.

I am happy to say that I was able to complete my goal yesterday!

When I woke up (still crabby from the yucky Monday that I had), my first thought was that it would be so easy to put off another day....then I got my behind up and out of bed.

I had planned out a route to work mostly along a bike trail, and wasn't quite sure how much it would change my mileage. The usual way that I take home when I bring my bike on the bus is 8.5 miles...this turned out to be 9.4 miles and I made it in just over an hour.

I was so excited that I was a third of the way through my goal!
As I worked my shift, I kept reminding myself to keep moving so I didn't get stiff and sore. As the day wore on, I was starting to feel a bit worn down, but made sure I drank lots of water and ate a good lunch....I also indulged in an espresso energy gel, lol!

On the way home, I took a different route for part of the way just because of traffic. I could tell I was going a bit slower, but nothing hurt really, just felt kinda sluggish and ran out of energy quicker on the hills, but oddly, I was able to slowly pedal up hills that I had to push the bike up previously.
The route that I took home was longer 11.1 miles....

Not only did I meet my goal, 20 miles is the furthest that I have ridden in one day!

I think my next goal will be to see if I can ride that much all at once! Of course...today is a resting day, while I don't feel as bad as I was afraid of....I am fatigued all over today.

Oh and a P.S.....
My tracker says that I have now hit 1000 lifetime miles!
Woot! Go me!

    Well, well!! My hats off to you because I tried biking a little and the first hill I hit I turned back around and got in my truck. Good for you!! That is a HUGE goal! And what a feeling of sweet, personal success. That's the best of all...how we feel about ourselves because of what we accomplished when we thought it was such a far off dream. I'm so happy for you and very proud of you for reaching your goal!
