Happy Fourth of July!

This blog is coming up on its 1 year anniversary at the end of the month. I am so happy I started writing all those months ago. This has not turned out to be the kind of blog I anticipated in creating. How’s that for a Happy Fourth of July!

I have not given myself the opportunity to share as much passion, knowledge and fun that I have for cycling and weight loss with you. I have a pretty compelling story and I have only just begun to share it with all of you.


Getting Back on The Bike

I am going to go out for a nice and easy Happy Fourth Of July Ride this morning. I love to roll along the plains of Boulder County in close, easy view of the foothills and Flatirons. Even though today is a holiday check out how I already spent the first part of my morning.

You see, this is the part where I turn it all around. This is the part where I start providing the value I imagined for this blog. I imagined interesting stories, beautiful rides, and insightful information about weight loss and cycling. I imagined my audience sharing their thoughts and their stories so we could grow as a community.

When I go out for that ride later this morning, I will ride to be powerful, graceful, and inspirational. You see, my purpose in life is to empower people to change. My bike ride is the manifestation of that change. Getting out for a bike ride was the one thing, the one change I made in my life that sparked my weight loss journey. And going out for a ride reminds me of my purpose. Happy Fourth of July!

I first got started because I had enough! You know that feeling. You’ve had it up to here! That’s it! Yes, I’m shouting, because I’m fed up with my life! I knew I needed to make a change, and I did not feel like anything could possibly make a difference in my life.

So I decided I was going to lose weight. I made a decision. And I made one change in my day. Instead of sitting on the couch for three hours watching TV, I thought I could ride for 20 minutes out in the garage on the indoor trainer. I made one small change in my day.

Soon I was back to riding outside. Morning air in my face. Recreating the routes I rode all those years ago. Wondering why I had ever stopped bike riding in the first place.

So this ride is for you. Are you thinking about getting back on your bike? Do you want to make a change in your life? Do you want to achieve a goal you never thought possible? I’m here to tell you it is possible.

I can tell you what to do, what to eat to get you from point A to point B. That just might work.

It takes a mindset to achieve your goal. That is what I will help you see over the next 30 days. You become what you think about most of the time.

I’m still looking to make changes in my life. I can help you too. Together, let’s get out and ride.
