Notes from Steve

March 8, 2021

I was talking with a friend last week, and I told them that I haven’t weighed in on a scale since October of 2019.  (seriously)  I told her that I have PTSD regarding weighing in and furthermore, it usually ruins my day.  She told me to deal with it, get over it, and hold myself accountable.  So I did it, and true to its name - Covid19 (plus more) -- 2020 was not good to me at all.  (deep mournful sigh)*.

There were several things that caused me to get on the scale.  First, the gentle scolding from the friend, but then I tried my skinny pants on and it was like I was trying on kid’s pants … oh, and then my tire popped a couple of times on my bike.  

Yesterday was my all-time favorite day of the year - March 1.  It is my favorite because - it’s the farthest away from January and February you can get, and I hate these months but also -- it’s the gateway to spring!  Man, I love this month.  This represents my first day of the year, so it only makes sense to refresh and renew.  I celebrated with a ride this last Saturday, and it was wet (puddles) and sunny and beautiful until my tire blew.  I have 3 months to lose 19 pounds, stayed tuned.

*I preach accountability all the time; except to myself.  “Do as I say (not as I do)” but this has to stop.  CURSE YOU GIRL SCOUT COOKIES!! (and ruffles potato chips and all forms of cheese).
