I am officially down a total of 11 lbs now!!! It's a great feeling! It's nice to know, regardless of the stressful things that are going on in my life, there is something that I can actual take control of - my health and well being! With those taken care of, I am so much better at catching all of the curve balls life has been throwing my way lately. I think that if I was not in control of my health, like I was five weeks ago, I would have had a true break down. I sometimes wonder how I take on all that I do. I lay in bed at night, letting my mind run through the current day's events and laugh a little thinking "is this really my life?" But the next morning, while pushing myself on the bike, I clear my mind and don't allow myself any thoughts other than what I am doing right then. The feel of my muscles tightening in my thighs with each rotation of the pedals. The smells around me. The sound of music in my ears and the familiar feeling of sweat trickling down my face and neck. It's the perfect way to start each day with a clean slate, not a biased slate from the previous day.
