As I blogged about on Monday my weight was up, and I knew it would come down. It didn’t come down as much as I had hoped, but overall I’m still doing well.
I originally intended to ride to work everyday this week, but between cold rain and my lazy butt, I skipped two days. I still rode three days. That’s about 100 miles on the bike. That’s 100 miles I didn’t drive. That’s $21.00 I didn’t pay in parking. That’s a whole bunch of calories burned.
I had a busy week at work, but that does make the time go by faster. I also feel that I accomplished a fair amount of work, and have been learning the ropes at the new job. My eating habits have been good this week, and my weight loss marches on.
I talked to my daughter today, and it looks like we may go see Wicked tomorrow. I’ve been hoping to spend more time with her, and this sounds like fun.
The Friday evening commute home is usually the scariest and worst with rude drivers. Today’s commute home was one of my best. I only had one slightly rude driver, and several polite ones. I even had someone in an SUV follow a safe distance behind me the entire length of the 2nd Street Bridge. It was probably someone who knows me, or another cyclist. I didn’t see the person, and didn’t recognize the vehicle.
I made good time getting home today. The slight tailwind helped, but my overall good mood for the day helped me pedal faster.
