I was in a pretty bad [grinning] mood this morning and I just couldn’t get a handle on the approach to this blog post I wanted to write. See I am a formerly skinny girl, and now I am a slightly lumpy woman…”life, it adds weight.” That’s my new motto, LOL. Add in someone mentioning that I have gained weight, when all along I was in denial, well funky mood time.
But reality bites, and I am no longer in a funk, thanks to airing out the house, getting rid of the negativity, and just determining to be happier. If I have put some weight on, then so be it. We have been super busy with moving in and getting organized, and looking after my parents, and I neglected my exercising…thinking my formerly skinny genes would take care of everything.
I understand that’s the way life goes, and the doughnuts may have had something to do with it..they make the best cakes and doughnuts up here. I love to bake, I love to cook, I love to eat, and that makes a recipe for…
A new bike.
This is my thought, in order for me to be able to eat the foods I love, I need to exercise properly. We are planning on getting a elliptical trainer downstairs in the fall, that will be good for the winter months that seem to stretch on forever.
But for now the bike seems to be the answer. It’s just that a few things need to be fine tuned in that department. Namely me.
It’s been a long, long time since I have been on a bike, and a few things have changed since then. I’ll let you know about them tomorrow.
Until then, big wheels keep on turning…skinny former girl keeps on burning…
Calories she hopes.
