I made it home under my own power yesterday, despite further realizing that part of my problem might well have been not eating anything all day. It was a slow ride, but I made it. Felt punky for the rest of the day, but I believe that I ma... Read more

Yesterday I felt very sick. Today, I had two court dockets to attend; 9:30 am and 1:00 pm. I decides that I would drive to the morning one, run an errand, come home, and then decide if I felt up to biking back to the afternoon one. DD came home ... Read more

Biked 15 miles yesterday, which helped the moodiness some, then had a bout of migraine syndrome, which might explain much of the moodiness. Marginally migrainey this morning--headache is vaguely there, but much more with the nausea and light sen... Read more

I'm just a bundle of fury and crankiness today. I'm not used to this. I'm usually a pretty happy person.... Read more

A friend of mine was just hit by a car while riding her bike. She wasn't badly injured, thank goodness. When we discussed the circumstances of the accident, my suspicions were confirmed: she'd been riding on the sidewalk, and was hit by a ... Read more
Confused about the seasons

I almost headed out the door without sunscreen today. When I stepped outside and realized it was 85 degrees, I changed my mind! Even though the year has gone really fast, in my mind Pedal to the Point was the culmination of summer. Now that... Read more

The thing about accomplishing a big goal is that it's easy to go into "completion" mode afterward. And completion mode means that I've gained almost 10 pounds. I know that it's mostly water retention, it being that time of month, but I am ... Read more
Half credit for my work

According to Spark People, I have engaged in 801 minutes of exercise so far this month. In reality, I have engaged in 1,619 minutes of exercise in August. Because my time tends to be in distance events, I only get credit for the daily ... Read more

Today's plan was simple: get up and do abs and strength training, get laundry done, go to Party City with DD to pick up costume bits for the Super Hero Bike Ride tomorrow evening (just a fun ride, but costumes! and the way we'll do it, 30-40 mil... Read more
This very hard thing we are doing, and why we need to be both vigilant and kind

There was a discussion in one of my forums during which someone said that people fail at mainenance because they stop eating right and exercising. I think it's unfair and too simplfied to say that people just stop trying. There are biological co... Read more

It sounds crazy, after a weekend in which I biked 125 miles, to say that I have to get myself rededicated to my journey. But in reality my weight has bounced up about 10 pounds because I was eating EVERYTHING in anticipation of this ride. ... Read more

As many of you know, I participated in Pedal to the Point, the Multiple Sclerosis 150-mile bike ride. Except it turns out that the race organizers mapped out a 165-mile ride for us to enjoy. Which didn't make any of us very happy. But, hey,... Read more

Tomorrow morning, we get up at 4am to get to the starting line on time for the big ride. Turns out the big ride is bigger than we thought. Someone did the route math, and it's 81 miles on the first day and 84 on the second. I'm a bit irked... Read more

Lots has happened in the last week-and-change, some of it good, some of it bad, but all of it keeping me away from Spark People. First of all, last Sunday I took a bad fall and bruised my tailbone. I was in so much pain that I thought I mig... Read more

Yesterday I checked my basement closet for more clothes that might now fit me. There was a pair of size 14 jeans there, which looked TINY. My daughter encouraged me to try them on anyway, just to see how close I was getting. Imagine my shoc... Read more
