Me + Bike + Hills + Gravel

Equals one bad combination.
I was spending time with my dad last night. He decided we needed to go on a bike ride. Now, I LOVE riding my bike. I really do. I have had my bike for over 12 years and I love it. Bike riding is one of my favorite things. However, Dad decided we needed to go on a 5 MILE BIKE RIDE! With no preparation. On gravel roads. With hills. Big ones. On blacktop roads too. With no water. Even with my wonderful gel seat I bought last year, my butt is so sore. And my legs were screaming at me last night trying to get up the hills. Oh, and to make it all better, I had a serious case of heartburn right before and during the ride, as I was starving since I hadn't eaten since 1 pm and we went on the ride at 6 pm. We did the whole thing in about an hour and it was fun, but next time, we go on the trail.

Okay, on to The Biggest Loser last night. WOW! I was so happy and proud of Ron that I cried when he finished the marathon (I am NOT a crier, by the way). I felt bad that Mike couldn't run it, but still, he finished it. AND, Tara is in the finals! Go Tara! I love her! It was so great to see all the past contestants. I loved that! It is sad that the finale is next week. :( By the way, I reached my 2 pound goal (just barely). Now, all I have to do is lose more instead of gaining it back (which seems to be the pattern lately).
The weather here is beautiful and I am so happy! I have a lot to do, but it is a good day. I am by myself in my little part of the office with the door open to let in the fresh air.

Happy Wednesday!

The Biggest Loser was so good! I, too, am going to be sad when it is over. Maybe it will be a quick turnover like this season was where it started 2 weeks after the old one. Tara definitely deserves the win...or Mike. I am pulling for one of them.
