Rode 16 miles today.  It felt so nice.  I love climbing up the Hike and Bike hills.  I had a realization today... I think my road bike was the greatest thing to ever occur.  I can't get the seat fixed in the proper angle though, which makes for a killer ride... literally.

I've been averaging about 50-60 miles a week, which is awesome.  PLUS,  I have a biking buddy that is not scared of going fast or doing sweet and random things.  So that basically rules.

Life is good.  My goal is to lose 15 pounds by the end of summer.  NOT because I think I'm fat, but because it will 1. make biking easier, 2. bring me to my healthy optimal weight, 3. make me feel super active.  I really need to get in shape, and quick.

In other news, I have offically detoxed for 34 days, and I have never felt better.  I believe this is permanent -- in more aspect that one. :)

Bike Fixin' and Ridin'

John taught me a few things about bikes, and in the process -- my bike is now good to go!!!  Check it out:

I'm kind of iffy on the shifters, but I will get the hang of them soon enough.

Already put some miles on my bike too.  They are as follows:
--Thursday 03/26 -- 13.4 miles (7.5 miles were with John.  That was fun, and it made me remember how fun it is to ride with other people.  Wow... I really wish I had a riding buddy.)
--Friday 03/27 -- 7.5 miles

I feel so balanced as of late.  My attempt at detoxing didn't go too well, but I'm starting again.  You only live once, right? :-P

Had a killer yoga sesh yesterday, which pretty much motivated me to do pilates.  Pretty pumped about that. (Note to self:  GET A NEW YOGA MAT ALREADY!)

One last thing.  I feel like all of this new energy in my life should be accompanied by a really random and spontaneous change so I'm cutting off all of my hair tomorrow. :)  I can't even wait.

P.S.  I am really obsessed with Rilo Kiley this week -- so many good jams.

offsetting bad habits...

jogged 1.4 miles yesterday

1.6 today

I am not, by any means, a runner so this is pretty okay for me.  I'm happy anyways. :)

I think running is the best way for me to clear my mind.  Honestly.

Oh!  and my bike is fixed just in time for this perfect weather!  Ah, life is lookin' up.

I'm trying something new with this one.

I've decided to make some serious changes in my life.

Granted, this computer is great, but it is taking up too much of my time.

As a result, I am deactivating my Facebook, putting the myspace on hold, and limiting my computer time to homework needs only.

I feel like this is a really good thing for me.  There are good vibes written all over this one.

Might as well post this before I forget the figures.

Just got back from the Rec Center.  Jogged 1 mile and biked 7 miles --  Average mph 18.0.  I'm pretty pumped about that.

A change of pace...

Went to the Rec Center yesterday -- jogged 2.1 miles.  A small beginning, but a beginning nonetheless.  I figured that if I want to start getting in better shape, jogging is the way to go.

As a diet side-note:  it seems full-fletched veganism is right around the corner for me.  Granted, I'm pretty vegan now, but I might as well go all of the way for the betterment of my health.

I'm ending my night with a pretty intense yoga session tonight -- or so I plan to.  Ideally, I want to master crow pose for what it's worth.  Also, hip-openers and hamstring stretches will be a main point of focus, especially considering the fact I am starting to jog more often.

Things are great.
