Day 302--a quickie, but everyone likes a quickie now and then

I rode a bike today. My daughter Rachel walked along beside me at first because I am afraid I'll fall. But I didn't. Then we went on TWO bike rides. My legs are all noodly. But I did something I haven't been able to do in years because I was fat and I did it wayyy before I thought I would be able to do it.
Riding a bike!
It was so much fun!!!!!!!!!
And when my kids get home I know they're all going to want to go on a bike ride with me because I have never---let me repeat that, NEVER--gone on a bike ride with any of my children. And I have been a Mom for 25 years.
I am being reborn.


  1. Congratulations on a wonderful milestone and a huge change in your life!

  2. Yahoo! Congratulations, Zaa! It's so fun to watch your transformation!

  3. congratulations! I hadn't ridden with any of my kids either until recently and it is such a JOY!!!!!

  4. Love it, love it, love it!!! :)

  5. Oh i'm so happy to hear that you've conquered something you have never been able to do!! That is amazing, no you are amazing :)

  6. You just did something I've been dreaming of doing. I could now, I know I could---just haven't found a bike yet! I will---and then watch out!!! I haven't been on a bike since I was a kid. What did it feel like to ride??? I want details!!!! I'm so excited for you!

    My best always

  7. I just found your blog and LOVE it! I'm SO super happy for you! WTG, Sista!! :)

  8. I secretly want to buy a bike this spring. The bigger hurdle will be riding it in public. Yeah, I know, "nobody cares!" but it's still a thing with me. If I make myself do it, it would be tremendous because that would (obviously) be a lot of great exercise.
