Something to work towards!

What a beautiful day on Saturday. David rode the Hilly and I volunteered and worked the first rest stop. I have done some volunteering in my time but the bikers that I encountered on Saturday were the nicest group of folks! No one had anything to complain about that I heard. I was on my feet from 8 until 2 pushing donuts, bagels, muffins, apples and bananas. I ran into project grad John Singleton and saw he and Wendy after the ride. I even got to help an injured rider with a lift back to the school. He was bummed as it was his first ride and his friends rode on without him. Seeing everyone and hearing how they enjoyed the ride at least to the first stop has given me some motivation to get on that bike and train in the coming year so I can be there riding next time! I look forward to working with Chris and my fellow project members to reach this goal.

The Program Rolls On

Had a great lunch with Jana and we are ready to continue down the project path! I have been good about my food again but find myself busy with other running around and cannot get to that blasted exercise. I know that is the last key to this whole thing so what am I going to do? Thursday is my night! I am going to get my bike set up on the trainer so that I can ride away some worries and anything else that comes off with it! Thanks again Chris for allowing me this opportunity to meet such great people and giving me the tools for living a healthy lifestyle! Peace!

Eval Results

I am pretty proud of my accomplishments over the last 12 weeks. I am not where I thought I would be but moving in the right direction .... at a slugs pace! Time to step it up a notch and get on track. Can't wait to see what the next 12 bring me!

Just met with Coach Chris and chatted about the next 12 weeks. I missed the eval on Sunday so we will see what changes took place during the first 12 weeks on Wednesday. Here is what I know going into Wednesday - I have a dress that needs to be taken in, clothes are getting looser and I wore a pair of pants that had not been on since last summer. I am putting healthier foods into my body. I love that Bulgar chili recipe that I found and have some other 'new' things that I hope to incorporate into my diet (as in food intake not South Beach or Jenny). But most importantly, I have new friendships! We are in this together so let's continue to provide support to each other! Thanks Coach Chris! Peace!
