I have NEVER ridden SOLO before EVER!!!!! Today was my FIRST time, I headed out early afternoon and peddled out 20 miles in 1:18:50 and 1143 calories!
I don't have a bike rack.....I need to invest in one but until then the back of my car works great!!!! I love how one of my high heels somehow managed to be in the picture. Maybe next time I'll try riding in them?
I headed out West to the "Country"! SO BEAUTIFUL, I loved it. It was very peaceful riding alone, I was left alone with my own thoughts and feeling. Maybe that wasn't a good thing...... No I actually loved it, I was able to reflect on my life, kids, husband and daily tasks.
As I came to the bird refuge, I couldn't help but stop and reflect on my life for a minute. I was alone, no cars, no other people, just me and the birds. As I looked around I felt go grateful that I CHOSE to change my life, that loosing weight has given me a NEW life. I was appreciating my hard work and remembering where I came from. I know that my hard work has paid off and is continuing to show and bless my daily life.
I loved watching the ducks!
I finished my ride and felt great! I could have kept going and wanted to however I needed to save my legs for my. . . . . .
