Sorry for the late post this week. I did weigh in on Saturday, but was in the middle of a youth activity weekend and didn’t have much time to do anything but focus.
I did lose a little weight, so I am happy that I am continually moving down. I think I could have made it a 2-pound week, but my bike seat post kept slipping. I believe the problem was a bike post problem which I could fix until today. Otherwise I could have been on my bike for an additional 2 days this week. Oh well, I’ll get in a good ride this week!
A couple of things that happened this week is that I went to Lagoon, a local amusement park, and was able to ride the Wild Mouse. Last year at this time I got kicked off the ride because I was just to large. This year, I fit! What a fun feeling! I also rode most of the rides that my daughter went on, including about 7 times on the bumper cars. Last year I don’t know if I rode anything with her because I was just too big. This year I felt 20 years younger and had a fun time riding the rides with her!
I have gone down another notch on my belt and notice that my pants are getting bagging again.
I ended up letting my videographer in Japan go. Things were getting a little shady in my opinion and I didn’t feel good about how the rate I was originally quoted began to rise. Things finally got to a point that I just told the fellow that maybe we can work in the future together, but I needed to find a more reliable source that I can count on. So now I am quickly looking for another videographer. Give me a holler if you know of any. ;)
This week I am planning going on a 80-mile ride. It will be fairly flat, but it will be a good endurance ride. I am going to ride from my house to my mother’s house in Alpine, Utah, and then back again. It will be a fun ride and I have wanted to do this for quite some time. This won’t be a long uninterrupted ride. I’ll be traveling through the valley on 9th East, and the through Draper around the point of the mountain and then into Alpine.
I will plan on leaving at 5am on Saturday, so if you want to come, please join me! I think the ride will take about 6-7 hours. We’ll see.
Anyway, 2 months from tomorrow we’ll be flying off to Japan for our adventure. I think I am getting more excited now than scared. How often do we get to have an adventure like this in our lives!
I’ll be in touch on Saturday.
