Day 20

Got home from work and decided I would go for a bike ride. I rode in the heat for 60 minutes and wrung my clothes out when I got home. I got to cool off with a Mango Peach shake that I made from a sugar-free drink mix. It was really good and cold.

I am happy to report that Ray, my husband, is doing shakes with me at night. I am glad he is because it make me feel less guilt for not cooking...oh yeah...I only felt guilt for a nano second as he always gets the "good" TV when there is a Cardinal Game on like tonight.

I didn't see too much on my bike ride to report but even though it was hot it is a good way to relax...except for the hill by Jennings Park...it brought a tear to my thigh. I plan on keeping up with the biking as I have a goal of riding a 10-mile ride with Molly and Roger sometime. I need to get a helmet and I would like another old lady to ride with me as I imagine I will be an anchor to Molly and Roger.

As every day since I started this journey, I thank all for your comments and suggestions. I think it is time to end for today. You know long stories and long fairy tales have a tendency to dragon.....
