Tuesday morning bike ride

Hey! What's up with that?!?!?!?!?!?! Tuesdays are supposed to be my day of 'rest'! So why was I on the bike? Well, Todd wanted to go for a ride. He wanted to go on the canal. So I thought it would be a nice relaxing ride. I mean, the canal is shaded and it's flat. What a wonderful combination. Well, we went down to the canal about 10 miles downstream from the general area that we live in. Hopped on the canal and commenced with our ride. It was a mud bog! Terrible mud issues. So Todd is like, "hey, lets get off at Snyders landing and go up to the town, and swing down on the roads." Uhhh Todd, hello, that is a climb. Oh we, had a bit of a disagreement. (Why, he's lived in this area all his life...he should know these things!) I had to remind him that I had come down that hill on my bike yesterday...coasting doing about 35 mph. Which reminded me to tell him about my bug on the sunglasses incident that happened on that same stretch. I thought he was going to fall off his bike laughing. I won that round...so we rode on further and then swung up on the road back to our house. My legs felt like iron! It was not a good ride for me.

I weighed myself today. How in the world can I gain 5 pounds in one week? I'm up to 183.6. Wait....that's closer to 6 pounds!!! This is just not funny! I'll get it back off...but how daunting is it to realize that one little slip up and it's that bad on the scales!

I ate healthy today. I did splurge and have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich for lunch instead of the toast with jelly that I normally have. I wanted to have something with a bit more protein for my lunch.

Well...I went to take my shower after i ate lunch and I was looking at my hair that had come out of my ponytail and was wispy around my face. That got me to thinking about bangs and how i've had bangs in the past on and off. And that made me realize that it had been a long time since I had bangs. I stared for quite some time...and finally picked up the scissors and snipped away. I didn't do a heavy bang.....but it looks pretty good. For something so simple, EVERYONE has noticed immediately that something is different. Apparently it makes my whole hair cut look differently. Todd kept insisting that i did something to all of it.....and my co-workers asked also. My co-workers told me to wear bangs all the time because it looks good. Hmmmmm
