Hello, fellow transformational specialists
I've had some digestive problems in the days after the juice fast. At this time, I have my last planned juice fast scheduled for July 2010, starting July 1 with the pre-pre fast as in March. So, since I know that topic will come up again, I'll put it off for now, because that's not what I want to talk about.
I want to talk bicycling!
The number one thing I've done to reshape my butt is bicycling. I love it! Tom and I have cruiser bikes - one speed, brake in the pedal. Like kids' bikes. It gives me the same happy feeling I had biking as a child. I never really got the hang of shifting gears, and didn't like the angle of the seat on the "adult" bikes I've had through the years. So I haven't biked much as an adult - until now.
We got our bikes in late March last year, so I've been riding again for a year.
The results have made my current weight-loss period significantly different from my last one (1988-89: lost 70 pounds after having a child) in that I'm hardening up more. I also feel that I've lost more fat from the inside of my body (around my organs, etc.) than just the fat on the outsides of my muscles. But what you do for your muscles (reduction of fat, toning, stretching) helps your bones, helps your organs.
Yesterday we took our bikes out west to Mineral Wells State Park and Trailway, where we biked twenty miles from the town of Mineral Wells (the trailhead is the old rail yard behind the fancy depot in view of the imposing Baker Hotel) along rail bed to Weatherford. Nothing but countryside and the tiny town of Garner. Then we stretched our legs, drank about a half gallon water apiece and rode back.
That was my first forty-mile ride, brothers and sisters!
Who said you can't teach an old dog new trix?
How are you using your brilliant bodies these days, gentle readers?
