Exercise and Food Diary

Advice that was well-intentioned but just ended up terrifying me.

Exercise: Riding my bike! On the road! to the gym and work, and then back at night on the sidewalk. 30 mins. elliptical, 3 sets each upper body lifting.

Breakfast: Kashi blueberry cereal, Silk Vanilla Lite.

Snack: Strawberry yogurt, like... 5 oreos.

Lunch: The other half of that "Bella" sandwich.

Snack: 1 banana

Dinner: Gnawing on a leftover NY strip steak bone - no joke. Green tea, Panetonne (about 1/3 of the tin. That's a lot if you know the Williams-Sonoma Christmas Panetonne).

Today was my first day biking. In the morning it was ok and I even rode on the bike lane on Venice Blvd., but at night I was truly afraid. So afraid, I rode on the sidewalk. My problem is stopping and starting, which make stoplights and crosswalks a will-I-or-won't-I situation.

How do you practice riding your bike on the road without actually riding your bike on the road? Can anyone enlighten me?

You must click on the heading! It is a link, of course, to the scary bike advice website. In fact, all of my headings are links. I'm sad you haven't noticed!
