"Even the Sparrow Knows:
Trusting your Savior with a Troubled Heart"

Weighing in with Him: the WHOOHOO version!

That pretty much sums up how I am feeling right now 😉 Let me show you why!

As you know, I have been doing my “mega walks” 2-3 times a week with Little E. Well, he goes to Mothers Day Out on Thursdays so hubby and I broke out the bikes 2 weeks ago. Here we are out on our bikes for the first time in a LONG time! We used to mountain bike several times a week when we lived in Missouri. It felt SOOOOOO good to go riding! My legs were screaming but it was a good scream!

We did about 12 miles on the dirt roads averaging about 10-12 mph.

Last Thursday, I went out biking solo and was pretty sure I was going to die on 3 separate occasions. I biked to church to get my keys from the diaper bag that happened to be with Little E at Mothers Day Out. That was 4 miles. Then I decided to bike an additional 13 miles.

Death Trap #1- I somehow ended up in the “ghetto” of Pville and was definately not in the best of neighborhoods. That was scary! Plainview is a nice town, but don’t go east of the railroad tracks. Its rough over there!
Death Trap #2- I was riding out on the country roads and a rottweiler came snarling at me and I didn’t realize he was chained up at first. I started pedaling super fast. I was convinced I was going to lose a leg before I saw that chain!
Death Trap #3- Picture above. Intense fog. I was sure someone was going to run over me as I was biking on the outer road of the interstate (I was NOT on the interstate lol).
Luckily, I survived.

And look! It rained enough in West Texas that the mud actually stuck to my tire!!
Last Saturday was RACE DAY! Here is hubby with his victory stance =)
And here is me doing my victory pose! 21 miles complete in 2 hours on mountain bikes! We were biking right into strong winds for the first 10 miles so we could only average 10-12 mph at first. Those last 11 miles were AWESOME as we were averaging 16-22 mph!!! ZOOOM!

So now for today’s weigh in!
Last weeks weight: 138.6 lb
Todays weight: 137 lbs!
Total loss from last week: 1.6 lbs!!!!!
Hubbys weight last week: 260 lbs
Hubbys weight today: 258.4
Total loss from last week: 1.6 lbs
