Everything else kinda pales in comparison, ya know? I've been waiting EIGHTEEN years for this day! I almost can't believe it. She's really excited and even more excited to be starting college. *sniff* my baby isn't a baby anymore!
Here's a quickie update on fitness and food...
Wednesday I attempted to go for a bike ride. I say attempt because there were multiple issues with my bicycle that only became evident as I was on the way to my destination. 1) The seat moved, a lot. 2) The tires are apparently as air tight as a block of Swiss cheese. 3) The seat height was too low so I felt like my knees were in my chest. 4) The gears were kinda working. See the problem(s)? Fortunately, I had only planned to use my bike to ride to the store to satisfy a cucumber emergency (I picked fresh dill) so I was only going about 1.5 miles round trip. I ended up walking probably half of it. The last .25 miles was all down hill, so I just coasted the whole way and it was awesome to feel the wind in my hair! The bottom line: I need a new bicycle. I'm doing some research, but it's on the list for purchases in the near future along with a bicycle helmet.
Food has been fine. Yesterday, I had an apple and peanut butter for breakfast, my latest favorite and lunch was a yum yum salad made from garden goodies. Dinner was chicken and lots of squash. Everything was in a little bit of a hurry since I had to rush from work to home to the graduation ceremony, but it all worked out just fine. I still need to drink a lot more water.
Tomorrow is the big hike! I'm so excited and have lots of prep to do tonight. After work I'm headed to REI to pick up the gear I rented, then home to pack!
I hope you all have a LOVELY weekend with lots of sunshine and good times.
