Now anyone who reads this blog with any sort of regularity knows that Mr. B and I have a wonderful and very fun relationship. He was kidding (sort of!!) and would never, ever say anything hurtful. He loves me exactly the way I am. He loved me at 203, at 138 and all weights in between. The thing is, he's RIGHT! I have 19 pounds left to lose to reach my goal and every last one of them needs to come off the area of my body between my waist and my knees! Sometimes the way I am built is more frustrating to me than the weight I'd like to lose. Finding clothes that fit is difficult no matter what my weight is!
So my parting shot to MY GUY in response to being told I needed to reduce the size of my booty a little more was perhaps he should start hiking in FRONT and let me take pictures of HIS behind. I'm sure I could come up with a few comments of my own. LOL!
I'm sitting in a cozy room at a Bed and Breakfast in Lexington, Virginia. I'm on my way to spend some time with my already good friend, Tish from Incremental Improvements. This trip was born several months ago when we both mentioned a desire to bike the C and O Canal Path from Cumberland, MD to Washington DC. We've managed to coordinate the trip with Mr. B's fall break and I can't wait to get there tomorrow and actually meet her face to face. Mr. B will fly to DC on Friday evening and is able to stay until Wednesday morning before flying back to Tennessee. Being the road trip warrior that I am, I've got our bikes on the back of my car and had a beautiful drive through the Shenandoah Valley this afternoon. I arrived in Lexington in time to check in to my cozy room and head out for a walk through town. Like most Virginia towns, it is wonderfully quaint and I wish I could spend a couple of days here. But not this time - I'm on a mission to arrive in Alexandria by early afternoon tomorrow.
The great bike ride (we are only riding from Harper's Ferry to DC) is next Wednesday and Thursday. The original plan was for her DH to ride with us, but as you recall from her blog, he broke his wrist last week and will not be able to ride. He is going to "support" us along the way. WHAT A GUY!! I think the next week is going to be one I'll treasure forever. We plan to stay fully on plan and exercise in all manner of different ways. I've got my bike, my hiking poles and boots, my Yoga clothes, my walking shoes, and if I need anything else, I bet there's a store somewhere in Alexandria that sells it!!
In other words, by the time I head back south towards Tennessee, MY GUY should be seeing much less of me and perhaps he'll change his tune to "If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me)?" Yes, my friends, unfortunately, that really was a hit song by the Bellamy Brothers in 1979!
So now you know that I'm a perfectly shaped pear!! What are you, an apple or a pear?
