Yesterday was a pretty good day. Claire and I walked around Lake Harriette. Our total was almost 3 miles. I biked to work this morning too. My biggest obstacle seems to be the enormous bag of candy one of my colleagues brought into work. We're on day 3 and there seems to be no end in sight. I'm indulging way too much, but I'm trying resist as much as possible. The problem is I'm always much hungrier on days I bike.
Speaking of bikes, I'm in the process of converting a road bike into a fixed gear bicycle. I've been having a lot of fun working on it, discovering how it works, cleaning it up, and reassembling it. After toying with a number of different color schemes, I've decided I'm going to paint the bike forest green, get a brown saddle, and wrap the handlebars with white tape. It's going to be a sweet ride when it's done. And now that the weather is finally cooperating, I'm actually going to be able to get some exercise by biking.
I'm optimistic. Forget 100 pounds in a year. I'm focused on 2 pounds in a week. And I'm going to get it!
