New TOY!

I blame Mel for this - she mentioned it and it stuck in my head for a couple of weeks and then I couldn't wait anymore and had to go buy it! The FitBit One - best fitness helper doodad geek toy ever! It's forcing me to push myself and beat myself every day. And I can see how my friends are doing and we can egg each other on! It's fun and good. I can log food, exercise, sleep, and so on....

So...I am almost at 10,000 steps today so I think I have to take another little walk around the block to hit that. You get badges for hitting different levels - it's wickedly fun and cool!

Ah well....enough of that - I hope that you are all well!

I'm ready to ride. I've not ridden much in the last two years and it's time to get back in the saddle. :)
Of course I'm ready but 30 degrees is not warm enough even though I'm more comfortable being cold - not on a bike!

So be ready for bike pics and adventures...I figure if I post it here it will force me to get out there. Well that and I really need my bike to help me think. It was a refuge a few years ago and it hopefully can help me this time. Grief sucks - you think you are okay but then it sneaks up on you and hits you like a truck. Stress doesn't help either so the bike will be my ticket to de-stressing and de-griefing. (my own made up word)

Canal trail here I come!
