Yesterday was "practically perfect in every way" as Mary Poppins would say! We bicycled one of our favorite routes to the Farmer's Market and on to Panera Bread for lunch. There was one notable exception that added some length and challenge to our normal route. A portion of the greenway is closed for some utility construction, so we chose a route along some side streets through the University of Tennessee campus. I'm trying to prepare for a longer ride in a couple of weeks, so this was really good for me. Not sure of the total mileage, but between Thursday's ride and yesterday, I biked no less than 36 miles in three days. It was wonderful. I am so grateful for the change in weather and as promised, October is for outdoors. I'm spending as much of it outside as I possibly can!
Today is Sunday Sharing with a twist! I'll change it up every week or so to keep you on your toes and hopefully, keep you from becoming bored with the concept. You have no idea how special this has become to me. Reading and pondering over these every morning while sipping that first cup of coffee is a delight I truly look forward to! Thanks for responding. Please continue.
For those who might be new this week, please refer to this post for the background of Sunday Sharing. For the rest, here's a reminder:
As we start a new week with its gains and losses, ups and downs, triumphs and challenges, joys and sorrows, please leave a comment and tell me some very specific thing that needs to happen in your life this week for you to feel as if you're making progress in a forward direction. Be as honest and specific as you are comfortable being. If it has absolutely nothing to do with weight loss, that is perfectly o.k. This is about your life and what is occupying first place in your mind as you look towards a new week.
Here's the twist:
This week, instead of sharing one specific thing, tell me about your upcoming week as a whole. What are your concerns and is there anything specific you dread? Share with me a one word description of your mindset as you face a new week! Be honest - it's o.k.!
For me, the week is hectic, but until next weekend, holds no huge challenges of which I am aware. My one word mindset is: DETERMINED!
