I was surprised by the cool front that blew in yesterday. Dropped a ton of rain for about an hour or so and dropped the temperature by about twenty degrees. I knew that I must take advantage of it, so I went home and hopped on Cha-Cha for a ride in the park.
While the temp was low, the humidity was pretty darned high, so the ride wasn't as good as I'd hoped. My legs felt like lead, but they pretty much always do when I start out, but yesterday they just stayed that way. I was looking forward to that "whee" feeling, but I didn't get it. Oh, well. It was still a nice ride and I saw some different wild and not-so-wild life. I saw a pack of raccoons that were adorable, but scary at the same time. I was riding on a trail in a wooded area and happened upon them. But the scariest thing I saw - is the newly elected Mayor of PissyMoodVille (I've been demoted to merely a city council member) - a big old domestic goose that was IRRITATED that I was riding on the path that His/Her Honor wished to cross. He/She lowered her head, stretched out her neck and made a charge! I just peddled around.
Change of subject - Maintenance. I've been trying out some lower numbers this summer in an effort to determine what is reasonable and sustainable for me. I don't know that I have a specific goal weight in mind, but I think I'd like to establish 142.5 as my high end. I'd like to weigh below that. I seem to be able to sustain this weight and still live a non-restrictive life, if I keep the stupid stuff in check.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Cool down.
