Welcome to December!

Wow, it sure got cold! One morning, it was 61F, and by the time I left work it was in the 30s. Welcome to December, and winter. The thought of riding my bike outside in January, February, etc just makes me worry! I'm going to need some decent clothes! And I need to figure out what to do about my eyes tearing up - I went outside this morning for 2 minutes to feed the birds some old bread, and my eyes were filled with water by the time I came in. (Anyone who exercises outside in the winter, feel free to give me advice - I've never done any real winter exercising!)

I had a great week on the bike - logged two 2-hour sessions, and found out that Elvis movies make great riding companions - I mean, how can you pedal slowly when "Viva Las Vegas" is playing? :o) The TV in the room where the bike is set up is not hooked up to cable, so I'm making the best of my small DVD collection. An episode or two of Buffy also makes for a good ride.

I also lost 2.8 lbs this week - coupled with it being Thanksgiving week, I'm quite proud of myself!
