Today I rode my bike. No, the road still isn't open, but I asked someone who would probably know and he said that there isn't a security guard there anymore and to go ahead. So I did it. I rode my bike. The ride to school-great! I mean, I was out of breath, which is kind of sad since it is mainly downhill, but I had the bike at its highest? or would you say lowest? gear? I don't know--anyway, the gear that makes it really hard to pedal so even on the downhill portions I could pedal.

The ride there was no nice that I was beginning to wonder why I got a sore rear end last time I rode--ah but I'd forgotten the trip back. Agony. I was dying (and yes definitely sore in the unmentionable place I just mentioned). I didn't stop and rest for a while which I totally could have, but I did have the bike gears down?/up? to the point where you can be pedaling fast and hardly moving. Honestly? I could have walked faster on some parts!

If you are tracking my posts you are wondering why I'm posting at all since tonight was Back to School Night. Nope. It's tomorrow. So no taekwondo for me. I guess it's good that I biked today and will bike tomorrow.

Yes. I'm still going to bike tomorrow. And I gotta ask--how do you people who exercise do it? Ugh is all I have to say. Double ugh. And phooey.

My calories--as long as I just eat what I'm planning to for dinner and nothing else will be fine. It was a little higher than normal due to the fact of those persnickety Oreo Goldens that were in the library for the teachers at the book fair. I only had two! When I really wanted four or five or six or seven . . . you get the picture!

Oh self control--who wants it? Yes, that is the kind of mood I'm in right now. Luckily I don't have anything really tempting lying around right now. If I did? Yeah. The calories would be out the window for today! See? This is why I don't have stuff like chocolate, chips, cookies, etc . . . lying around. I have no self control.

And tomorrow's bike ride? Dreading the second part of it. Maybe next week will be better--most likely next month--October that is, but next week might be a little optimistic. Ugh. Exercise. Sigh.

Way to go with the biking! It sounded painful.

I've been biking for three months and my bum still gets sore. Maybe if I wasn't carrying around 130 extra lbs my bum would get used to biking.

Thanks . . . it wasn't exactly comfortable.

If mine is killing after two weeks I'm buying a huge granny-esque seat with plenty of padding. Why suffer?
