Anything Goes On Sunday: I’d Rather Be Cycling!

I needed some house repairing tools and wanted a palm tree, but I was not in the mood to drive the car and get into traffic. So I decided to do what I really love to do: cycling. Really, I will rather be cycling than driving, all the time. So I grabbed my bike that has a rack attached to it and rode away to Home Depot!

On my way to the store, I was pedaling fast, breathing, puffing, and doing my usual “dancing on the bike”. After pedaling 16.7 miles (26.72 km) I got to the store,  secured my bike, went into the store, and bought what I wanted. Time to go back  🚲 🚲 🚲

I go to my bike to get everything ready to go back home. Using some high-quality stretch elastic bungee cord hooks I bought I tie the palm to the bike and to my surprise I rode without the palm moving to the sides at all, it was pretty secure!
The 16.7 miles (26.72 km) back home were so awesome and full of fun that I hardly felt the heavy weight I was carrying on my backpack, and the palm tree loved the ride!
I felt proud of myself knowing that I could carry in my bicycle everything I bought, and rode a total of 33.4 miles (53.44 km) with no problem, enjoying every second of it.

Anything Goes On Sunday: People Excercise In Venice Beach Homeless Nightmare Please Watch Video

I don’t understand how is it that cyclists, joggers, and runners are exercising in the middle of so much filth. It cannot be healthy to be breathing that air, seeing that kind of trash, rats, and feces of the homeless people.

I would definitely NOT ride my bike in any place like that ever. We shouldn’t get used to practicing our favorite exercise in the middle of that kind of environment.

When we practice a sport, we have to take care of our physiological, anatomical, and mental functions. We need to take care of our well-being. And we shouldn’t get used to seeing people living in squalor, becoming desensitized.

Beautiful Messy Sunday Forget Perfectionism … It Sucks!

Breakfast in Messy Bed!

Perfectionists have a lot of baggage that other people don’t, and that baggage comes from constantly striving to appear perfect.” Basically, it’s not easy being perfect; it’s heavy and exhausting.

When we live a rigid life in order to attain out-of-reach goals, we miss out on the organic rhythms that our mind and bodies might be moving to in a life less focused on perfection. Striving to be great … or good or even just okay.

Messy but lots of Fun!

Rather than perfect allows one to find their groove and excel, even if that means excelling with a messy sink or undone hair. And when you get to that point, and can find the liberating joy of imperfection? I would say that’s pretty perfect.

Furnham says that people focused on perfection tend to have low self-esteem, noting also the presence of “guilt and its fellow travelers, shame and self-recrimination.” Admittedly it’s not clear if low self esteem feeds perfectionism or if perfectionism feeds low self esteem, but when I think of the more confident people I know, they are the ones unashamed of imperfection.

I for one stopped being so rigid in my cycling schedule. I now dress the way I feel like, colorful if I want to, no planned routes. Yes, I am a Messy Cyclist, and I LOVE IT!

Messy Happy Cyclists!

Cycling Makes Beauty

Bicycling can help improve your heart health as it is essentially an aerobic exercise. The oxygen depletion in the muscles will push the heart to supply more oxygenated blood, thereby making it work faster. Along with your heart, bicycling also make your blood vessels and lungs work well, which helps to boost your heart health. Bicycling also makes you look stunning!
