One day at a time.

I rode my bike again. The bridge I take over the river was closed, so despite my best pep talk of “over this hill the the flat bridge” I had to go up a few more hills to the next available bridge. Stupid bridges.

It feels amazing. To be honest – I’ve always hated working-out. I hate sweating, I hate wheezing, I hate exercise. Let’s be honest. lol. But there really is something about this biking thing. It is kicking me but. I get home smelly and sweaty and nasty and I can’t breath, but I know that I just biked 7 miles. I honestly thought it would be something I tried and then gave up – but doing it just makes me feel so alive. And it’s not the boring gym stuff. I’m moving and I can feel the wind in my (sweaty) hair and I talk myself up those hills (Only walked up two short portions today!). I honestly think that once  I get my bike fixed at the end of the week I will be able to ride the entire way. And it is freaking AWESOME!

So that’s all.

PS: I’ve only had one entry to my tiny little give away. If no one is interested… I guess it’s not really a contest at all. Lol. Click on the link below if you’re interested in vying for a chance. I can also make a stagnant one if you would prefer that. 🙂

Continue the fun!
