toned my abs
toned my triceps
genetics did not allow me to tone my rear
toned up my hair color--it's darker now
I eat about the same amount of processed foods
I come to a 100% stop at all stop signs
Jimmy will not allow any color except eggshell white on the walls
I raced several smart races and got on the podium several times
With this being said, I do not know what my Resolution is going to be this year. There are so many things I want to do, accomplish, and experience this year; I do not know if I should "Just Do It" (sorry Nike, I just stole your 1989 motto) or should it be a Resolution?
Either way, I have my health, a great family and a wonderful job. Do I really need to paint my walls or have a firm rear to make it a successful year?

A much better idea came to me. Heck, it's is almost dinner time, so why not have a banana split?! I will gladly forgo chicken and green salad for an ice cream dinner.
It looked so awesome, so perfect, so delectable, that I wanted to take a photo of my culinary creation and post it. Mid-way though the creation process, I got the camera ready. Poured on some more caramel and turned the camera on. A big whirl of whipped creme, with some chopped peanuts on top finished my masterpeice.
After that, it was a blur. I forgot about the camera. I sat down, moving my books out of the way and dug in, wiping the edges clean with the banana slices. What an awesome dinner.

teach spin 3x a week
school 5x a week
work 3-5x a week
wife 10x a week
train (back down to a measly 3x per week)
Once again, my plate is too darn full.......why my brains are not oozing out from my eyeballs, is beyond me.
Oh yah, I had to break out the sweatshirt for the first time, this year. Gloomy ol' winter is around the corner and that is going to reallllllly mess with my brain. I want off of this train.

Animals that were formerly self-sufficient are now showing signs of belonging to the Democratic Party- as they have apparently learned to simply sit and wait for the government to provide for their care and sustenance.

This month was filled with lots of real crappy stuff:
~My dear friend of 25-years died of cancer.
~Lil' Sis Johnna, finished radiation treatments for Stage 2 breast cancer.
~Bo, had to have his eye removed, due to advanced stages of glaucoma.
~And other shit I cannot even blog about..........
This month was filled was some slightly crappy stuff:
~I did not race San Ardo; my fav race of the season.
~School started back and I have 3 more semesters to go, before graduation
~In a few weeks, I'll be 46 years old
~Jimmy continues to loose weight without exercise and diet pills, while I maintain my weight with calorie restriction and 10-hours a week of exercise.
This month was filled with some not crappy stuff:
~The cat did not pee on my homework

Not to be confused with the reality show, Celebrity Rehab, Bo is not some washed-up, has-been who is addicted to drugs, alcohol, or sex (though he does like to hump the kitties; I would classify that as a fetish, but not an addiction). His therapy was prescribed so that he could increase his physical activity with little impact on his arthritic joints.
After his strenuous 5-minute walk, the doc said he should rest and stretch tonight. This is how he looked on the way home.....

Thanks to the Foggy Blogger for the heads-up about this tragedy.

1) Almost half of the applicants did not bring a writing utencil.
2) The first male applicant had 'WHITE BOYZZ' tattooed across his knuckles. He asked me if his ink was a problem for the company. "This is a friggin country club, buddy!!!"
3) One gal had so much collagen injected into her lips, she could hardly talk. Or maybe, it was due to her gigantic tongue ring; I am not sure which caused her verbal imparement.
4) A bartender who bragged about all of his female-beer-guzzling-admirers, then casually mentioned he was fired from his last bar, due to accusations of stealing.
5) I cannot forget the middle-aged lady, who looked like Lady Marmalade. Her overprocessed platinum colored hair, shiny pink corset with a dark pink bra peeking out, lycra peddle-pushers and sky-high platform heels that only strippers wear and of course, she reeked of cigarettes.
One looser after another. I endured six solid hours of interviews for practically nothing. Where are the normal people, I ask?

It costs me $80.00 to fill my tank, which is a major deterrent to my traveling plans. I wanted to race this weekend, but the cost of gas would have exceeded any winnings that I may have earned. Multiply this by my usual weekly gasoline usage and I would have $160.00 spent.
These prices are really cramping into my race plans and that makes me angry.

He was about 30-years old, no socks, no jersey, no helmet, no water bottle, no fanny pack for supplies, BUT he did have yellow spandex/lycra riding shorts on, apparently to match his LeMond, because there is no other reason in this entire world why someone would purchase yellow shorts.
The light changed and he hunched over into his aerobars, with buckets of sweat running down onto the asphalt--it is almost 90 degrees today. As he rolled past me, I witnesses his mini-man boobs in the inverted tee-pee position and his shorts pulled up to the middle of his back. Gag me with a spoon.
As we know, I am not Style Man, but this was a cycling atrocity that no citizen should have to witness.

I test rode this frame and was really surprised with the results. I wanted something snappy and responsive (like my other bike) but it needed to have a smooth ride. The Cervelo R3 was the winner.
You can't tell I had 3 years of photography classses, huh?!

Just leaving the parking area. No sweat. The plateau behind us, is our destination.
As we approach the flat top, we must scale this steep trail, first.
We had lunch on the edge of the earth...freakin' awesome!

I grabbed my Cadillac of a bike to head out for a 80 degree workout consisting of some sprints and high cadence work;
which leads me to the next topic--the right bra for this job.
Bra #1, though quite industrious looking with it's 4 clasps,
1 1/2" wide shoulder straps and drab gray cotton, it holds the
girls in securely during the high cadence workout. When I stand up to sprint, everything stays in it's place...no bouncing here.
Bra #2, is three years old and was (at one time) a compression
bra. The color is still vibrant and matches the Velo Bella kit so
perfectly, that I can unzip the jersey a bit lower than usual.
Since the fabric is stretched out, it allows my DD's to swing
to and fro in the hunched-over cyclist position.
Off I went on my Caddy and in Bra #2, into the agricultural
abyss, known as Fresno. Where there are fruit trees, there
are blossoms, and where there are blossoms there are bees.
LOTS! Wearing baggy Bra #2, created a gap between my
clavicle and bosom area. A bee flew in and stung me on the
left one. A few moments later a bee got wedged into my helmet
vent and stung my cranium when I tried to remove him.
As I rolled into my driveway, with an itchy boob and lumpy
scalp, a bee had the audacity to land on my handlebars. With
a quick flick, I knocked him into next week.
1 Bike, 2 Bras, 3 Bees and a Partridge in a Pear Tree......

I bought him a new wedding band and asked him to remarry me. Honestly, I was a bit nervous about the entire thing, as he thinks that renewing wedding vows are hookey. What if he were to laugh at the idea or worse yet, what if he turned down my proposal?
Fortunately, he said "yes" (and quite happily). June will be our 28th anniversary and I know most couple renew their vows on their 25th or 50th anniversary, but I cannot wait until then. I am hopelessly, madly in love with my husband and I cannot wait a few more years. We'll do this by ourselves on the beach..........

I flipped him off (something I have done only one other time) and then shouted "C*#K SUCKER!" (that word I have used only once, as well). I was really hoping he would have pulled over. I was so angry. The entire way home, I was looking for that black trailer with snow on the bumper. I envisioned flattening all of his tires.
