My Summer Quest: Get In Shape!
Today is my birthday so I got to decide what to do. And I picked a long bike ride.

It was tremendously fun, but we learned that we are very out of shape from last year. So instead of riding for as long as we had planned, we stopped at Dairy Queen for an ice cream. This what I had as my birthday cake:

Anyway, it's not that I want to lose weight. I simply want to be in good shape. Same with the girls. And if I let us, we'd all sit inside glued to the computers in the house all day. Up here in Canada it's not like we get that much good weather, so I want to make the most of it.

Near us are a whole bunch of cycle routes, on back roads and waterfront trails, that are beautiful. They range from about 20 km to 100 km, which is about 12 miles to 60 miles or something like that.

Anyway, next week we're going to try an easy one at 21 km for the Saturday. We'll pack a picnic lunch and head out, stopping every little while to look out at the lake.
By the end of the summer I'm hoping to be able to do the 37 km trail straight through. It's in the middle of beaver country, and I saw one yesterday when I was driving through. It's really quite pretty in a rustic kind of way.
So that's the plan! We'll see if we can do it.

Hi Sheila!! Thanks for visiting my blog!!

I was looking on your profile and we like a lot of the same things. The Francine Rivers Mark of the Lion Series is #1 and others things!!

I am in Physical Therapy right now for my back. I have been since January. What we are doing is strenghtening my tummy muscles and legs in the pool!! So I am to hold my tummy in whenever possible. So as a suggestion, when biking, try holding in the muscles in your tummy. Also when doing housework, walking, driving etc. I have lost inches in doing this!!

That's my two cents. Visit anytime!! Blessings, Paula
