The Big Idea!

So the time has come for me to really get into shape. I have been thinking about it for awhile and I just want to dive head first right in. I figured I could get in shape and save on my gas bill since the price doesn't seem to be dropping anytime soon. So I went out and bought a bike and rode to work for the first time today. The trek is 15 miles one way so it ends up being 30 miles of riding a day. I am on day 1 with the first leg over.

So now that I am at work and have time to think about what I have just done and how I am going to get home makes me wonder. My butt really hurts from the seat and my legs still feel like jell-o. I will try to suck it up and right my way home and see how day two will start out for me.

I just ask that you pray for me and hope that God will give me the strength to power on despite how much pain I am in right now. I know that it will only get better with time and I just need to keep it going. I will keep you all up to date on my great biking to work adventure.

Oh my! When were you planning to tell me that you just jumped in and went for it? You might consider a hot bath tonight and maybe not ride tomorrow. Maybe every other day to start with is the way to go for this one.. Plus I can't have you get in super great shape while I just keep getting bigger. It'll make me feel even more whale-like than I already to at nearly 6 and a half months pregnant...
