Bike Habits

Once again, I reached out to Twitter for ideas on what to write here. That resulted in yesterday’s post about my diet, which wasn’t a barn-burner, but it really got me thinking about how to approach the problem. Today, I repeated the process, and got this one:

My on-bike habits are something that evolve over time — my food preferences change as I experiment, and my music tastes evolve over time, too. Continue reading Bike Habits

Diet

Historically, diet has been my weak link in self-care. I eat like shit. I admit it. And as part of my rebuilding plans, I want to get better at it.

To that end I have discovered a few interesting things: Continue reading Mindfulness and Learning
