I was doing a really good job of watching my intake and staying within my limit this week. Until the weekend. I should have kept track but I didn't. My fault. I snack more when I don't keep track. I eat larger portions when I don't keep track. I eat out of the garbage when I don't keep track. Okay, maybe that last one isn't true.
Lesson from this weekend: I need to log my calories ON THE WEEKEND too. It's harder, but it needs to happen. I should probably blog more on the weekends too.
I've been keeping up with my 30 Days of Biking. Although I only biked about a mile today I still got on my bike. Other days I'm biking upwards of 20 miles. I'm hoping to get my stamina up so by early October I'll be able to survive the Grand Rounds, 50 miles of bike trails around the city of Minneapolis. I've invited my brother, Erick, to come down some weekend to ride the trails with me.
I'm learning a lot about cycling and lusting after a new (used) road bike. I've been keeping an eye on Craigslist and I'm hoping to pull the trigger soon on buying something. I have an idea about how much I'd like to spend, but I don't know how much of a project bike I want. Then again, I've only been biking for about a month.
The bike I have now is fine. I just want something that is better designed for the kind of biking I'm doing. Should I stick with what I have or should I take the plunge and get a new (used) bike?
