Grabbing Life By The…Uhhh You Know!

I took the plunge today and rode my bike to work. I have mixed feelings on it. I didn’t love it, but I didn’t hate it either.

I liked getting up early and having extra time. I usually am racing out the door coffee in one hand breakfast in the other. It was a bit more chilly than I had thought and it was windy. Ugh wind!! I also had a huge back pack with my clothes, lunch, make up and shoes. It was really freakin heavy! Didn’t love that. It felt good to know that I had gotten a work out in first thing in the morning. Overall I can see myself biking to work one day a week. That’s my plan at this point. Might have to think of something else to carry everything instead of a gigantic back pack. The real point of this post is to share some of the thoughts I had on my little ride to work this morning.

As it always does, my mind got to thinking about all kinds of things. And yes I was paying attention to what I was doing ( that’s for my hubby!) He was worried I’d daydream and drive into a ditch. Heh it actually could happen, I’m a bit clumsy! Anyway, I got to thinking about life. Pretty broad topic. Specifically about how I want to be living my life.

I decided this morning while navigating my way to work that I want to grab life by the you know what’s and just live the shit out of it! I hold myself back an awful lot. Mostly out of fear and self doubt. You know what? It really sucks to live that way. Take today for example. I normally would have talked myself out of the whole thing, but I just thought, no you want to do it so just do it. Don’t analyze it to death and talk yourself out of it just ride the friggin bike to work. I have lots of things I want to do/try and I’m just going to do them. I’m getting better at just taking the plunge with things running is one of those things, but I still hold myself back. Not just with fitness stuff, but with lots of things. Pretty much in every aspect of my life actually. Well no more :)!!


Life really is too short to be a wall flower. I want to be healthy, fit and live the life that I live in my head! Wow…that was quite the life changing bike ride 😉

Look out world….I’m on the loose 🙂 I’ve got my sights set on living and I’m coming to get ya!!

    re: the heavy back pack issue. Maybe the day before you are going to ride your bike, bring your clothes/shoes for the next day to work and leave them there. Then for the ride, you can have a smaller pack with just your lunch. Then the day after you ride, you can bring all of your clothes from the day before back home….assuming you will ride home in your “workout” clothes again?? just a thought. Looking forward to see all the ways you “live the shit out of it” LOL…love that!
