Chocolate easter bunny says what?

My son had two basketball games today, both at a high school a little under 11 miles away from our house; for the afternoon one, I had the bright idea of riding my bike out there, and meeting the family for the game.

I'm happy to report I made it in one piece, stopped only to drink some water, and can still walk. Sort of.

Switching between sitting and standing is going to hurt for a day or so; time to scope out a new bike and/or a new padded seat cover (I have a padded cover now; it's not enough!)

So, I biked last saturday for 7.5 miles, went to the gym at lunch on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and biked today for 10.7 miles. I even played some basketball with youngest kid for a while before it got dark.

Hopefully this means I'm in the running for the Fatty Bowl. More on that next post.

I've been struggling getting back on plan. One thing that has always helped me is writing things down - blood sugars, weight, food.

Thanks to Josh W., I discovered The Daily Plate. I will try to enter my food there as I go:

I'm just figuring out the interface, so don't worry, I didn't put the half and half in the sriracha.

... But now that I say that, think I might have to try that out.

Thanks, internets, for keeping me honest.
