It may not sound like a whole lot, but for me it is a new record, and a momentous one at that. My bike ride yesterday afternoon took me over the 3,000 mile mark for this year!!! :-) I am quite pleased, as this is double what my previous mileage record was!!! And there are still days left this year to ride some more!!! :-)
This was a very good year for me in many ways. I have come to a new level of health and fitness in my life that I haven't had in many, many years now. I weigh under 200 pounds for the first time in nearly 20 years!!! I now eat well, exercise regularly, and have developed a love and passion for bicycling. I rode a lot this year, and have enjoyed it so very much. I am already looking forward to what next year has in store for me as far as cycling goes!!!
January will mark my two year anniversary since I started taking back my life, and began to get healthy. Since then, I have lost 90 pounds!!! I feel so much better, and have so much more energy. I am no longer ashamed of myself, or how I look. I enjoy fitness and being active. I love being able to participate with my kids. For me, getting my physical health restored helped me to have better mental health, Spiritual health and emotional health! :-)
I am very hopeful that I will log at least as many miles in 2011. Really, I would love to add even more miles! :-)
Yes, I am happy.... healthy.... and I am a bicyclist!!!
