So, I stumbled on some random Time.com Health article that talked about how this woman started running, yes running the Tour De France on May 15th and plans to finish the 2,000 mile (yes, 2 thousand) journey before the bikes finish. She wrote a blog called Zoe Goes Running, and I’m having a blast reading about her adventure.
Alright, this was epic. Thanks to the FitMamaTraining Facebook page for the random post that lead to this Tedx video.
So, this is me, in all my glory, no makeup. My husband and I were bored at home so we jumped on the bicycles and rode 3 miles to come get some shakes at a downtown diner.
I’m not perfect, slender or high maintenance, but I’m learning to love myself. I sunburn within seconds it seems, my thighs jiggle when I don’t want them to, and I have circus feet and hands (freakishly small). I look like a dork when I am riding my bicycle but feel like a queen. I’m learning to ride the bicycle instead of my motorcycle, especially when I want to just jump in the car and go for a quick trip to the store. I smile really big, and cry more easily than I should, but that’s OK. I laugh when I’m upset or angry because I don’t like to show frustration or anger to people.
This is me, and that’s OK.
Sometimes, it’s interesting to see just how much you can get in calories, if you pay attention to what is making those calories up.
Loss of 0.4 lbs
Notes: I need to get away from such amounts of sodium. I am 99% sure I lost a bit more weight but am retaining water.
Pants that have been tight in the gut are feeling looser for sure.
