I'm in Denver. Where you at?

[edit]
okay. My resolution was to ride 3000mi this year. Thanks to the lovely weather, I'm a little behind. I'll get there, though. Rode today at lunch and stuff...

I will stop eating junk right after it finally kills me.
I am riding more, even though it is only the trainer
If I did not use BF at work I would go sane.

eat better: check!
ride at least 5 times a week: 97% complete
enhance career: too much effort...maybe another time.
go back to school: see above.

I don't remember my resolutions...if any. But it has been over a month since I had cooked food! I just need to get back out hiking more. January was a rough month for us physically, and we're still trying to recover from that!

I also want to do yoga on a daily basis. Maybe one or two live classes a month.

While I agree that its not for everyone, I always feel my ultimate best when I am eating a predominatly raw vegan diet. It's about how I feel that matters the most to me when it comes to food. Eating this way has changed my life in so many ways.

Yes, cooked food does taste good and I have indulged in it from time to time and no, it doesn't have to be bad for you, either. I still love cooking for people I care about. But, it doesn't make me feel as amazing and full of energy as when I do not eat it. Its the difference between night and day for me.

Besides, people say the say the same thing about meat when it comes to vegetarianism. Its sooo good and and it can be healthy too! Well, yes that all is true. I just don't prefer it.

I do have a weakness for good beer, wine and coffee that I need to reduce my intake on. I think I'll work on that as well.

Though I know I had several, I can only remember one that I made. And, no, Shad, I haven't checked it off yet.

Someone should dig out that thread....

So far I am training more, hopefully getting faster and stronger. I have also gone from 191 on 1/1/07 down to 175 on 2/21/07. My mileage is down a bit from last year though. I am currently only at 875 miles for 2007. Overall I'm not too far off track.
