Random Observations on Life and Fitness

  •  Cycling uses your core. A lot. I know this because my core was sore to begin with, and I felt it being engaged at different time during our ride this morning. I see core work in my future. Lots of core work.
  • There’s no pleasing some people. There I was on my bike, in the center turn lane, going to make my left hand turn, when some ass yells from his pick-up, “Get off the road!” There is no car in the turn lane, nor are we impeding any car in any other lane. How else am I supposed to turn left?
  • It is much more fun to cook with fresh ingredients. For the first time in quite a while, I’ve actually gotten a kick out of making some things to eat. I can’t wait ’til we get into the eastside house and I can actually have a big ol’ garden–I am planning to convert most of the front yard into edible plants and producing trees.
  • The house always feels more organized when all the laundry is done. Not quite there yet, but I’m working on it.
  • It would be nice if Stephen F. Austin University had an outing to the nearby Davy Crockett National Forest but I sincerely doubt that will happen. Maybe I can hijack the kids on the way back for a quick stop…I better be driving if that’s going to happen. If girl child is driving, she will whiz right past with a “Nope! No time!” This is what she does when I suggest stopping at historical markers (I am the only one in the family who likes to stop and read the historical markers. If you’d like to see some Olympic-caliber eye-rolling, ask my kids sometime about Goliad….)
