March comes in like a lion...
I've had a rough few weeks. Let me rephrase that. I've fallen off the wagon, starting on Valentine's Day, and continued rolling down the hill at a horrendous rate. My conscience has nagged at me, chewing at my gut, telling me to get back on track.
That is the reason for this blog. I knew that I would have moments of faltering. I have a history of quitting that goes back to the pathetic age of 8 when I started my first diet. Yes, I know, that says a lot about me. No 8-year-old should ever start a diet—eating healthy and moving around=yes—going on an extremely low calorie diet=never.
But I've learned a few things since then. And one of them is to stand up, starting now, stop walloping myself for messing up, and renew my goals. Once again I'm going to keep track of the foods I've eaten and I will continue to exercise. My bike is spiffed up, waiting for the next sunny day, and I still have plans to bike that 100 miler.
So dear readers and fellow bikers, what do you do to stay motivated? I’d love to hear your ideas.
