My quest at finally shedding 100 pounds or more. Good days or bad, weight up or down, exercised or not, I want to blog about it to for the next 12-20 months. Why the next 20 months. I figure if I lose 5 pounds a month, it will take me 20 months. I'm hoping by doing this, not only will it hold me more accountable, but will help me figure out what triggers my downfalls.

BROKEN BIKE WILL NOT DETOUR ME!
I had a goal to ride my bike for 12 miles one day this past week. Trying to work my way up for a ride from Romeo to Richmond & back. That is around 28-30 miles. For some of you that may seem like nothing and for some of you that will seem like unobtainable. For me, it will take some work, but I am bond and determine to do it. I started out with the slow and easy approach. I was enjoying the beautiful scenery & small critters that I was along the bike path. I got about 6 miles out and realized even though I was not tired, I needed to head back. After about two more miles, my bike broke down. The back wheel would not go forward. This makes it real difficult to ride a bike. A friend came to my rescue and brought me & my sad broken bike home. The next day, I did not let a broken bike stop me. I borrowed my daughters bike and headed out again. I told my husband that I was going to make it to Richmond and that he would have to pick me up. Well I'm happy to report that I made the 15 mile trip with no problem. Well outside of a sore bottom. When I get my new bike I'm going to make the trip to Richmond and back. I'm actually excited about doing it. Another goal that I know I can obtain.
