Well we spent Saturday out at a kids 'rodeo' thing. We were out in the sun all day, running around and playing games with the little ones. I was extremely sunburned by the time we got home! Though we didn't do our 2 hour bike ride like planned we did stay busy and active. It was a lot of fun, and some special memories with the kids! So yes we didn't do what we were supposed to do!! I'm not going to get down like I tend to do on myself.. just keep going!
So today is Sunday, we got up at about 8:30 and ate some breakfast at 9 a.m. I had about a cup of oatmeal, 3 small sausage links and about a cup of sweet tea. The Farmer's market was today in town, so we got ready after breakfast and headed in. We rode all the way into town.. the dirt road was rough when people drove by too fast dusting us, but it's such a victory when you get up that hill!!
So we made it to the farmers market and spent a little time there then decided to ride in to get lunch since our little boy was hungry. We had a slice of pizza, a large salad and some water at the pizza place between the four of us. We rode up to the bike shop to browse around, then up to the grocery store to see about a movie, then off to home we headed. In total we rode for 9 miles and it took us 1 hour 8 minutes. Not terribly fast, but not bad with two kids in tow either. I'm not sure that our goal of two hours a day is very do-able, but I think an hour or so is pretty good!! I'm not struggling with the riding like I did in the begining of the month and I am trying to keep a positive attitude, it's making all the difference!
I'm very proud of both of us, and the best part is I enjoy it. It feels like we've had a really nice family time and we get our exercise in too!.... I don't like exercise lol!!
