TOTALLY FUN BEACH RIDE! We had a great day riding new bike trails (for us) finding a cool hide-a-way by the sea to enjoy lunch, great Mai Tais, gorgeous sunsets glowing into the wild and frothy waves. It’s was a day for the memory books. So I’ll write a blog post in a day or two to tell about it and show the photos and links to videos on IG.

PS, Despite my social rage at not fitting into seats, Mark and I decided to re-up for the next season at the Pantages, and are crossing fingers that we can buy the third seat in April. If not, well, it is what it is. Thanks for the support! xoxoxox

Today

I may go for a short ride this AM and record a bonus episode. If not, it will have to wait a few days. Show 100 took a lot out me, and I think I have been resting. Mark seems to want to go back to writing group tonight, so I’m hoping we make that happen.

How about you?

Please feel free to comment on MY statuses or add YOUR OWN thoughts, feelings, challenges, rants and raves on these pages too. That was one of the original purposes of why I posted on FB. I thought BCs might like to share about THEIR days. So if you have thoughts and feelings you’d like to share with the group, go ahead and put them here with your comments.

*Daily statuses are not part of the blog’s email notification. When you enter your email under where it says SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL, you will be notified of regular blog posts and when podcast episodes are released. I didn’t want to clog your inbox with my daily statuses. However, the automatic publicize feature will inform you on my show FB page, my AdventureLaurie twitter account, google+ on its show page, and Tumblr.

PS If you wish to sign up for email notification of blog postings and shows going live (not these status reports) enter your email where it says: “SUBSCRIBE TO POSTS VIA EMAIL”. This blog subscription widget is located to the right on computers and on some tablets, and below the posts on smart phones and on other types of tablets.

PSS, some BCs have asked me the difference between blog postings and status pages. Blog postings are where I develop a complete topic triggered by my status thoughts. Status thoughts are how my day went, what’s on my agenda, and how my body feels today – and not much editing or thought goes into them. That’s why I don’t clog up your email with them. πŸ™‚

Body Balance


BB (Body Balance) number 9 Sleep: 8 hours divided (good first 4, good last 4) Tummy/Gut: balanced. Hungry after 1 hour of waking. Very small breakfast was fine. Energy: High Moderate. Mood: Zen

BB is my personal criteria, and I don’t think too hard about it. I ask myself at the keyboard, what is my BB? A number between 1-10, including halves, pops into my head. I write it in my post Then I figure out why it is higher or lower and gently make note.

If you are interested these are my measures.

  1. Sleep. Quality and Amount.
  2. Tummy/Gut – If I ate what my body asked for, usually above and below the belly button feel balanced. Ate too much, below the belly button feels more full. Ate too little, the reverse.
  3. Am I hungry within 1 hour of waking? I have found that I feel best if I am hungry within 1 hour of waking. This tends to make my eating day even and not heavy on food in the evening. But I don’t eat if not hungry unless I’m about to ride or hike. I’ve learned I need to fuel these morning activities, or I’ll bonk.
  4. What is my energy level? Subjective, but telling.
  5. A quick look at my mood.
