I ride my bike to work… I'm a bike commuter

10-MILE LUNCH RIDES

New job is going great.   Learning so much.   Working a lot and it feels good to be productive again.

It’s a very healthy office too.   So many of my coworkers either go jogging at lunch or go for long walks. It has really inspired me to get back on my bike and utilize my lunch hour.

So, I have been going out on 10-mile lunch time bike rides. The course I take is a hilly challenge. I really like it.

Sure, I’d love to ride a flat 10 miles, but what good does that do? The route I take definitely pushes me.

I even have a coworker joining me now on the rides.

Life is good.

You Can’t “OUT-EXERCISE” A Bad Diet

aa_IMG_4643For years, I tried to OUT-RIDE my bad eating habits.   Not that I eat poorly, I just eat TOO MUCH.   “I’ll just ride an extra 10 miles” was my mantra…

I know I need to eat better.  I know that.  I think I’m well on the way to it.   Thankfully, I love fresh fruits and veggies and salads.   Time to make all these and prep them is something I need to work on, but even that I’m getting better at.

It’s a slow process.

For the past week or so I have really focused on eating more salads (and liking them) and less snacking after dinner.   I feel better and my clothes fit better.   The number on the scale even reflects my efforts.

Now I just need to make this a lifestyle change and not a “3-week” diet plan.

(Pictured is my lunchtime salad I made….)  It was really good.
