How do you plan your weekend

One of the things that has changed my shape, is that on Saturday mornings during winter, I take the boys 7 and 5 up skiing 8am to 12.30, then we head home and they go play with their friends. Depending on what shift I am on I take them Wednesday afternoon too as the kids here dont have school on Wednesday afternoons.

The past few weeks we have went cycling for an hour or hour and a half first thing on Sunday morning, then go swimming for 2 hours later in the day.

As the ski season fades away (although looking out the window this morning I will need to wait until the snow plough comes through) cycling will replace Saturday morning skiing.

I am also planning on commuting to work .... every little bit of exercise helps.

Only down to 266lbs this morning......that was a nice surprise.

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

Good job! I just plan on the assumption that I am going to get my daily dose of endorphins from riding or other exercise! The burn just feels so good! I pick a random spot in a radius by tossing a dart at the map on the dartboard and ride there!
