suzyQlou Posted September 18, 2017 Report Share Posted September 18, 2017 I'm back to business after taking a challenge off, and this time I'm bringing my bike along. Goal 1: Go biking instead of running for cardio MWF. Goal 2: Keep up the strength workouts Tues, Thurs, and one day over the weekend. Goal 3: Restaurant prizes. Earn bling for my bike for every five boxes of leftovers I bring home with me. One-time Goal: Over the course of this challenge, get my bike to the shop for a tuneup. Goal 1: Go biking instead of running for cardio MWF. I ran a 5k at the end of my last challenge, and I think I'm ready to move on. When my legs feel healthy enough to run, I still seem to have trouble with my knees. So, I'm going to adjust my attitude. Running isn't the ONLY way to get exercise. I love my bike. I'm going to use it! Goal 2: Keep up the strength workouts Tues, Thurs, and one day over the weekend. Nothing to explain here. I just need to do it. Goal 3: Restaurant prizes. Earn bling for my bike for every five boxes of leftovers I bring home with me. Somehow, I'm still subscribed to the clean plate club when eating out. It's silly, but true. So I've decided to bribe myself with prizes. I'm going to make a big deal of stopping eating at restaurants. I will make my kids crazy by playing a jaunty clip of Queen's Bicycle Race song when I stop eating, and add a count to a bicycle bling counter on my phone. Every five boxes of leftovers earns me bling. The list of bling may grow over time, but right now it includes: iphone holder, basket, lights. One-time Goal: Over the course of this challenge, get my bike to the shop for a tuneup. My bike has this handy "feature" right now. Most bikes have a manual transmission, but mine is automatic. I don't even have to shift the gears when going up a hill. My bike automatically does it for me. *cough* *cough* This really means that the gears need to be fixed up. I love my bike! I don't know how it managed to age 20 years. It feels good to be back! 3 Quote suzyQlou * Ranger Old Challenges: #1(2015) * #2 * #3(push ups) * #4 * #5(food) * #6 * #7(2016)* #8(nerdiversary) * #9 * 10(animal) * Battle Log * 11(2017) * 12(garden) * 13 * 14(biking) * 15 * 16 * 17 * 18 * 19(2018) * 20(2019) * 21 Link to comment
