Sugar ‘n Bikes
Umm, guess WHAT? I bet you’ll never ever guess? I’ve been eating sugar like…like a sugar-eating maniac. Just now I had three donuts. Yes, THREE. Why? Why would anyone not coming off of a 50-mile ultra-marathon need to eat three donuts? Listen, I don’t make the rules, so I don’t know the answer.
What I do know is that I might need to step back from the sugar again and get a little bit of fresh, non-sugary air. I haven’t really been eating very well; I mean, I eat fruit, as long as artificial fruit flavoring counts. But other than that, I’ve kind of gone off the deep end of unhealthy eating. So, back to it. No sugar for the foreseeable future. And by “foreseeable future” I mean “the next two to three minutes.” Baby steps.
Actually, I’m going to try to go the next week without sugar. School starts this week, and I’m also hoping to add a few new freelance assignments to work, and I’ve noticed the more sugar I eat, the more anxious I am. It’s for the good of humanity that I back away from it for a little while and see if it helps with my mood and keeps me from crying, “My BABIES! Where did my BABIES go!” when I drop them off at school on Thursday.
In exercising, non-sugar-related news, I’ve been reading the blog archives of Simply Bike and I feel inspired, so I’ve decided I’m going to try going without a car for 30 days, other than ferrying multiple children to places farther than a few blocks. There’s no reason not to for me. The weather in Seattle is still nice and I just got a new fancy bike–the tires don’t fall off AND the brakes work AND the gears shift! I know, I went all out. (Why YES, my old bike was a piece of poo, how did you know?)
If you care to join me, then…uh, join me? Maybe we can have a vicious little biker gang on twitter.
