So Sunday was beautiful, around 60 degrees, and I got my light jacket and my grandpa's bike and my helmet, and hit the trail. After about a mile and a half of riding, there was a sign saying the next section of the trail was closed, so I turned around, which is kind of pathetic but also kind of a relief. This trail is on a mountain, so there was lots of ups and downs, and I was basically dying. My mom called me while I was walking the bike up a giant hill, and I huffed and puffed a conversation with her until I figured I was either going to drop my water bottle, drop the phone, drop the bike or drop dead, and said I'd call her back.
I suppose my interest in going on a bike ride on a nice day isn't so unusual. But when you combine it with the fact that I'm steadily getting better at pushups — I finally started Week 3! Week 3 is kicking my butt! — AND the fact that I ordered a pedometer on Amazon the other day, AND the fact that I've become obsessed with the Fitbit app, despite not owning a Fitbit? It's downright strange. Who is this girl and what has she done with Allie?
Whatchu mean it's time to stop laying around?!
Also, this obsession of mine has caused me to learn some stuff. Like, did you know that your body burns a lot of calories just to keep you alive? ME NEITHER! (It's okay, you can laugh at me. I had to ask Matt why the Fitbit app kept congratulating me for burning all these calories when I did nothing but sit around all day.) Also, did you know that it classifies "meditating" and "fishing" and "sailing" as exercises? This app is my new best friend. Obviously, now I need to get me a yacht so I can sit on the deck and call it a workout. (Oh hi, regular lazy Allie, I guess you're back now.)
Have you picked up any new hobbies or obsessions lately? Do tell! What new knowledge has blown your mind? Also, do you have any ideas for upping the number of steps taken per day? (Because it is sad but I am nowhere near the recommended 10,000 steps per day. NOT EVEN KIND OF CLOSE.)
