No fun pictures on this update since it was all done from my trusty CycleOps indoor trainer. All in all, December wasn’t spectacular BUT it was a step up from November. I was about 2/3 to my goal of riding 20 miles per week. I won’t beat myself up too much about it though because I kicked it into higher gear, pun intended, the last two weeks of the month and January started out strong (minus the fact that I am now sick as a dog).
So what next? Well January’s goal is going to be to hit at least 20 miles/week average.
Alright, so today was supposed to be the day for a monthly miles update, the FIRST ONE actually. No excuses, November was a rough month for me to get any miles in and the ones I did get in, I barely recorded. We’re in the beginning/middle stages of planning/executing our relocation so this month kind of got away from me. I sucked, I admit it. However, I’ve already logged some miles for December to make up for the No Bike November (or at least what felt like it) so stay tuned on January 5th because I promise there will be an update then.

We all get in slumps, like for me – right now. My husband and I are relocating to another state and this post month had been all about doing recon on where we want to move, figuring it finances, one of us finding a job first and the general mayhem that comes with preparing for major life changes. So getting my rides in has slipped a bit – OR A LOT – this month.
It got me thinking that maybe we could all use a pick me up or a pat on the back for a job well done. So starting today I will be posting a Monday M.O. M.O. if you’ve ever watched any crime drama is the way or reason someone does something, “modus operandi” is we want to get all Latin about it. Whether it’s just a gentle reminder to feel good or an update on my own progress, let’s just make Monday a positive start to the week. As this site grows I definitely would love to feature readers’ progress and personal breakthroughs too! So if you’ve got one to share hit me up!
Also, I need to give props to Secret Dream Life for this awesome photo! Perfect way to start out Motivational Mondays!
