Elkhart, IN High: 55 Low: 38 (!) Br-r-r--r...Is the heat on?
Yep, we are running the furnace which got fixed back in Wayland, MI. It's working great! Most of the time we use our heat pump, so we really don't use much propane as long as we stay in warmer locations. (WARMER, WARMER...remember that, Sparky! reminds E.) Yep, but I'm sure enjoying the crisp fall weather! Love it!
But, it gets the job done. I'm up to 6-10 miles almost every day on my bike, so whatever it takes to get the job done, I'm gonna get out there and RIDE! I love riding my bike in this weather!
Kristi has been on a weight loss journey and lost over 50 pounds this year with mentors Chris and Roy Pickler from Middlebury who were on the TV show America's Biggest Loser last season. Kristi never exercised when she was growing up and has always struggled with her weight. She is now running 5K's, riding a bike, drinking special shakes called Visalus, Body by Vi 90 Day Challenge, she's walking, using exercise equipment and working very very hard to maintain her weight loss and take care of herself for herself and her family. WOW! She also has the support of a running group of friends who cheer her on and help keep her going. But it takes a strong person to decide to take better care of oneself. It all starts with the inner YOU. We are very proud of Kristi, and her husband and son are very proud and supportive of her, too.
Connor, her little son, 7 years old, has ridden as many as twelve miles with his mom on his little bike! Here he is on his little scooter, wanting to show Sparky how he does a "pop wheelie" on his scooter...all of three inches off the ground!
It was a great fall day spent with family! Thanks for spending time with us today.......
