It’s been a very bad year. In January, I lost my baby, my 16 year old cat named Mufasa. He was diagnosed with kidney failure in September of last year. I changed his food, gave him meds and subcutaneous injections all while working 12-14 hour days as a restaurant manager. He died in my arms, and I haven’t been the same. His 16 year old brother, Diablo is fine, but he has never been alone, so he is needy. In February, I was let go because of the “drastic financial cutbacks.” And now it’s March. This time last year, I started dating my now ex-boyfriend. Fuck. What’s a girl to do? Well, I started doing the things I never had time to do. I am decorating my apartment. I am taking classes online…all of them: spanish, web design, app design and business management. I have been dreaming about running my own business for years, and it is about to come to fruition. So for now, I am trying to make 2013 my bitch.

I am totally single, which means I don’t have sex on a regular basis, or at all. So to expend all of that extra energy, I decided to start biking. I have not biked since 19– (trails off), so it was difficult for me. The first time I biked to work, it took me 45 minutes and I needed a cpr kit. It’s been just over five months now and I have shaved my time down to just 21 minutes. Last month, I sucked it up and biked to Manhattan, riding over both bridges. I have biked to IKEA and then to work on the same day. I thought that I would stop for winter because it is so damn cold, but I haven’t. Unless it’s too windy, or it is raining or snowing, I bike every day to work. I really enjoy the time to decompress from work, not to mention I am saving money. The best thing is, I can still eat whatever I want and my abs look fantastic. I bought my bike for $150, and I am thinking of really overhauling it with some new breaks and a good paint job. So yes, I would recommend biking to anyone. It really is the best substitute for sex…besides Mallomars…
