The exercise update is that, in addition to riding my bike, I've been doing my usual weights work (Thank you, Mark, for your helpful reminders!!!). In San Diego, I had to do other cardio machines, which bored me and compressed my back in painful ways and made me miss my bike more as well as the Vacation exercises I got from the Goddess of Heavy Objects (and even the Evil-Trek-Through-Mongolia Lunges, since there is absolutely nothing about the kind of lunges where I have to put one foot up on a bench behind me, bend my forward leg, and then move my upper body parallel to the floor and back to perpendicular before straightening my forward leg that seems like a Vacation) and a little bit of yoga. Short version: lots of exercise happening. Weight loss: not so much.
My plan for blog reform is this: Brent and I and T. are off to Australia for six weeks starting Sunday (Syd will come to Sydney for a couple weeks over Christmas). While I am there, I will be outside my normal routines AND having travel adventures; in other words, I will have more time to write and more stuff to write about that might even turn out to be interesting.
