Happy New Year! Time to get healthy again!

2012 was a hard year for me. I rode my mountain bike less than I ever have, and after having my third son in March, I found very little time to get out and exercise.

I’ve always enjoyed getting out a couple of times a week for a two hour ride. But the reality is that I’m lucky if I can get out once a week. In 2012 I sometimes would go a month or more without getting out for a ride. Not good for my physical and mental health…


So, I’ve got to do things different. Starting today…


I’m starting a new habit. Daily exercise. Not much. Just 20 minutes a day. That’s it. And I used to think that meant hard cardiovascular, but I’m not going to be so rigid.


I’ve read before that one technique people try is to not break the chain. Today is the first link in the chain. I tried this a couple of years ago with some good success, but now I have to do it.


I’m probably in the worst shape I’ve ever been in, and if I wait until I can get out for 2 hour rides, it’s never going to happen!


Wish me luck!
