Why have I lost interest in dieting? I honestly don't know. Maybe it's just juvenile rebellion. I wanted to take a trip and couldn't afford it, so let me pretend to be on vacation by not dieting. That's what we do when we are on vacation, right? Eat like we're not on a diet?!
Anyway, tomorrow I go back to work and I'll be ready to set limits for myself and have a schedule. When you have a lot of weight to lose, like I do, it requires a long term commitment. And just like anything that requires a long term commitment, boredom can set in. I think that's what's happened to me. I will be working on mixing things up so the boredom lifts and my "loser" attitude gets adjusted. I've come to far to "break-up" now, lol.
Saturday I went on a training ride that is offered by the group that organizes the Tour de Pink. Bike Barn was there to go over some items bike riders might consider using when out on the longer rides; helmets, camelbaks, mirrors, etc. They also offer a bike maintenance class the first Wednesday of every month. Yay! They are really nice and very helpful.
There were some great mentors riding around helping us novices learn about bike fit, safety while riding in a group, and just learning to be observant on the road. Very nice group of peeps. I am excited about next weekend when we go on a short group ride.
Thank you for thinking of me while I've been absent from bloggerville. I have some catching up to do and I've missed some important stuff, I'm sure. I'm especially sad to learn about Jen's loss. I can only hope that her family finds peace in the coming days.
Have a good week and don't forget to drink your water.
