Helping each other keep on track with the goals we've set for ourselves.

Back to the gym

The kids start school tomorrow. So I have made plans to meet a friend for coffee - after I go to Curves. I'm setting a goal of three times a week - and I'm going to try to walk (or something) on the in-between days.

Of course, I came back from camping with huge itchy bug bites on my legs, including one that sits right under or at the edge of most of my socks. Here's hoping it's not too bad!


T learned to ride his bike this summer so when we went to Portland last week, we hauled all 3 bikes and the trailer. We actually went on a few bike rides, too. The first one was a meander through the neighborhood M grew up in. It made me appreciate how flat neighborhoods are much more bicycle friendly.

The next day, we put the trailer on M's bike checked out a new bike trail along the river. Since we let T set the pace both days, I can't say I got much of a workout on either day, but it was fun.

I wish it was less hilly in our neighborhood. I'd almost forgotten how much fun it is to ride your bike.
