Back on the Bike

Hi! If you’re new here, you might want to check out my newly updated About page or my weight loss page. If you’re not new…well, carry on!


I left sunny Baltimore for this??

Although I miss my blog friends like crazy, it was nice to come home today–especially since I was home by 1pm. Usually when I go away for the weekend, I don’t come back until much later on Sunday so that I can maximize my time wherever I am. After being away for five days though, I was dying to get home.

It would have been really easy for me to blow off my workout when I got back, but there’s something about hanging out at a conference called Fitbloggin’ that inspires you to get your workout in when you get home, and so I went for a 12-mile bike ride.

I rode up the Hudson River path for about 6 miles and then turned around. I’m trying to just enjoy biking without getting obsessed with my speed, so I rode sans Garmin.

I do <3 my bike.

I also <3 sunshine. But you can’t win them all.

I went for my bike ride before unpacking, because I knew that once I got comfy, I wouldn’t want to get off my couch. It’s kind of like working out in the morning, I guess. Just work out before you can start making excuses.

I rode down to Energy Kitchen and got a turkey burger, potatoes and broccoli


Finally, I went back to my apartment and unpacked. Including all of this swag from Fitbloggin’. I’m most excited to try out the food scale.


Look who’s back! Thank god. I missed this little face πŸ˜€ My mom brought him in this afternoon because she had some stuff she had to pick up in the city.



With no food in the house, I also ordered dinner. Sushi and a veggie spring roll.

And now? It’s time to crash hard.

I think sushi is my ritual after I’ve come back from a weekend away. Do you have any food you always eat after you’ve been away?

    Hahah I love this because sushi is my ritual pretty much anytime.. sushi is always a good idea in my mind πŸ™‚

    I’m so impressed with your 6 mile run yesterday morning and 12 mile bike ride today… seriously, after last night ending so late and this morning starting with a 5 am wakeup call for my shuttle, i had thought of going to hot yoga tonight… but it didn’t end up happening πŸ˜›

    ..I guess there’s always tomorrow…

    Anyway, miss you! It was great meeting/hanging out this weekend!!

    I’m the one who had the microphone job and came up to you and “you look like a young, pretty girl” I would never have known you had been overweight,
    Anyhow, I like your blog.
    Looking forward to following.
