Gearing Up for the Winter!

IMG_0661I can’t believe it’s already November!  The year has flown by so fast – and – my posts have been sparse.  It’s not because I haven’t been riding (though I never ride as much as I’d like to).  It’s just been busy – work, home, etc.  And my rides haven’t been too notable to mention.

All that being said, I’m afraid that my belly is bigger than it should be – and – it’s time for me to get back into gear with my winter riding.  By the time I get home now, daylight is all but done.  So, the bike is back on my new trainer ready to log some miles.

I burned all of my Sufferfest videos onto DVD’s so that I wouldn’t have the same issues with my AppleTV in my movie room.  Of course, that means I’ll have no excuses to stop (well – good ones, at least).  My Spinervals DVD’s are calling for me, too (and rumor has it some new virtual rides are on their way!).

The other week, I popped the Virtual Ride 1.0 in and pedaled through it.  That’s always  my “Go To” starting indoor video.  I think it’s because it’s always been an easier ride for me.  This time, it seemed a little bit harder – so that must confirm that I haven’t ridden as much as I wanted this year.

So, it’s time to get moving and get myself in decent shape – so that, when Spring rolls around, I’ll be ready to go (and, hopefully, a little leaner, too).

That means I have to change the old eating habits, too.  A number of years ago, I successfully shed some pounds on the Men’s Health Abs Diet – and I intend to start up on that again.  If you’ve never tried it before, I highly recommend it.  Eat great, easy-to-make food 6 times a day and lose weight.  Yep!   That’s about it.  I was happy enough with the weight loss before.  I didn’t expect to get abs of steel (but – hey! – if they showed up, I’d be happy!).

So, perhaps I’ll have a bit more to post in the upcoming weeks.  Thanks to those of you who are still out there reading this blog!

Ride on!
