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.

I HAVE LOST MY MIND!!
Somewhere durning this weight loss adventure l have loss my mind. You might think I'm exaggerating, but let me assure you I haven't. Yesterday I thought it would be a great idea to see how far it would to ride my bike through some local bike trails. There are three bike trails that connect together. This will allow you to ride through Lake Orion, Rochester Hills, Rochester, Shelby, Washington, Romeo, Ray, Armada & Richmond. What I discovered (thanks to my trusty pedometer app) was that it is about a 35 1/2 mile ride. 35 1/2 miles doesn't sound to to bad. The problem was, I had to make the trip back. That's right, rode my bike for 72 miles (the extra mile is due to my house being a half mile away from the bike trail). To say I was beat would be putting it mildly. I could have had my husband pick me up if I needed him to, but I got to the point where I had to prove to myself that I could do it.
Seeing these two beautiful dear along the ride, made it almost worth it.
