thinking up a NEW b.h.a.g.

Happy Tuesday!

Well, on August 11th I reached my summer goal of riding my bicycle 100 miles in one day (odometer photo ‘proof’ above). The last time I had done that was about a decade ago. It was a hot day and we rode some of that 100 miles in 100 degree weather –  UGH!

So, now I need to think up my next B.H.A.G as my husband likes to call them (Big Hairy Audacious Goals).  Not that riding 100 miles is that big or audacious, because the day before that ride I got an email from a riding group that was planning a 140 ride on that day! And Tour de France riders do that every day for almost a month!  But it’s all relative, right?  A big hairy goal for some people is easy peasy for others.

Hmmmm…I have so many areas of interest that I’m contemplating lots of different BHAGs.  How can I narrow it down? Once I do and make a decision, I’ll let you know.  It’s kind of nice having blogosphere accountability.  It gives me a bit more incentive not to give up and move on when I get bored (which I tend to do).

If you have any suggestions, I’d love to hear them!

Have a great day. Do or learn, or plan something NEW!

 

 

 

Miscellaneous Monday…NEW stuff i gotta share

Happy Monday!

Well my past week has been busy with a large project at home, and unfortunately photography sessions have NOT happened {so sad}.  This pic is from a while ago…I really love how even weeds can look kind of cool…in the right lighting! :o)

My large project has been switching my computer room with our guest room.  The guest room was MUCH larger and had an adjacent bathroom.  Very nice for guests, but we don’t have guests all THAT often!  So, I switched rooms and I LOVE IT!!!  So much better!  It’s now a computer room/craft room; and I now have a ‘Project Table’ right in front of a large window…(great for photography).  It’s just SUCH a more efficient set up.  Maybe I’ll take some pics after I’m all done organizing.  PLUS! There’s a large open area that I could even watch some exercise youtube videos and workout in my computer room/craft room!  My favorite YouTube exercise guru is Zuzka Light (I love her accent too)!

I also have a NEW interest: PYROGRAPHY!  I noticed this site {HERE} that had a cool project and it’s now on my bucket list of things I want to try.  Let me know if any of you have any tips!

Lastly!  I wanna share this site I found that had Post Race Recovery Tips.  I used a couple of these tips on Saturday after a long-hard bike ride.  I wasn’t sore the next day, which was really surprising, cuz it was a killer ride!  But I thought they were good tips.  AND…a tip from personal experience:  If you empty out, then turn off your freezer, before you head out for a 3-hour bike ride, when you get home you feel SO EFFICIENT!  It’s like you were multi-tasking and you just wipe out the NEWly defrosted freezer and WHA-LA!  Such a good feeling!

Have a GREAT Monday!  Do or Learn something NEW!
