How am I doing?

Well, since last I was here, three work colleagues and I started our training program for the diabetes Tour de Cure. Both Thursday and Friday, we cycled on the spin bicycles in the gym at work and WOW did it hurt. Not my legs or back or any of that...no, it's just my gluteus maximus that was in agony. Good LORD that seat is tiny and hard! Fortunately my own bike that I'll be using for the event and all of our long rides is a very comfortable ride and has a wide, supportive seat, so at least I don't have to worry about riding 30 miles on a stone. Anyway, it's been painful but very do-able and I managed to do 17 miles between the two days without a tremendous amount of effort.

Additionally, I've joined the Eat. Live. Be. For a Better 2011 support group on Facebook to help me keep focused on and motivated by my intentions to live a healthier, more connected life this year. Specifically, my stated goals for that challenge are to exercise for at least 30 minutes on 5 days a week plus eat fruit or vegetables with every meal. They're good, simple, achievable goals, so we'll see how I do. So far, so good.

OK, I need to run out to pick up our CSA box at the farmers market - see you later.
