Why I ride my bike everyday


I just came back from my daily bike ride. How exhiliarating. I thought I'd share with you 10 reasons I love doing this everyday and make time for it. (If I don't bike, I walk.) Okeey dokey, here we go...

1) Fat loves to stick to me. I have to ride it off. No kidding if I eat a piece of candy I might as well tape it to my butt because that's where it's going to show up anyway. If I didn't ride my bike I'd be twice as big.

2) I love to feel the wind on my face.

3) I love to be by myself and ride and think.

4) God meets me on the bike. We talk.

5) I love to pedal fast but I also like to coast and just check out the sights. Trees. Flowers. Lakes. The Sky. Sprinklers. Clouds. The Sunset. Rain. You name it, I love it!

6) I love to work my legs and make them stronger. Might come in handy if I have to kick any unruly people. LOL Just kidding. Honestly, I do like toning my legs as much as possible. And Larry? He really likes it. :-)

7) Although I like walking, it's more fun than walking.

8) I like to pick up speed and go fast down hills.

9) It makes me feel like a kid again. (I loved riding my bike growing up.)

10) My neighborhood is great for bike riding and I take advantage of it.

Try it sometime if you haven't done it in a while - you'll enjoy biking, I can almost guarantee it!

I use to love riding my bike too...but we left our bikes behind when we moved to the Northwest. Now I'm regretting it. I hate exercizing if I know I'm exercizing, but I love bike riding because I can trick myself into thinking it's just for fun!!! I want a beautiful pink beach bike to cruise around on!!! I guess I need to start saving my $$$

Tim and I purchased bikes not quite a couple of weeks ago. We've been biking together each night since we've purchased them. I've been meaning to blog about it, as my Mom is waiting to see a picture, etc. So, you'll be hearing about my adventures...soon. :-)

I know. Barak has gotten into biking and is supposed to have my tire fixed this week so i can start riding in the mornings and get to losing some weight and getting back in shape. I too enjoy walking but its nice to have something to switch it up with.
