Day 222 – (AD 1,384) – 20.3 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I pedaled 20.3 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals: 29,362.4 miles; 47,254.3 kilometers.


I have completed 66.4% of the distance to my next destination and goal point.

Soapbox –

Ever since Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Baily retired the gray pachyderms one can say that a downhill rolling stone gathers no moss.



Still struggling with my early morning blood sugar counts. IT did drop 13 points today…but I got a long way to go.


Supper last night was a Deconstructed Pork Egg-roll. I used Red Cabbage and Grated Carrots, Red Onion, Cilantro, Garlic, Salt, and Pepper. I topped the dish with some Wonton Strips. (I got mine via Amazon.)



The painting of Rick Moranis appears to be somewhat worried hanging beside our Sleep Jezebel at The Cider Press Cafe, St. Pete.

Day 221 – (AD 1,382) – 20.0 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Today I pedaled 20.0 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals: 29,342.1 miles; 47,221.6 kilometers.



And I so, so want to stop…excepting for the fact that I am so, so close to reaching the 30,000-mile mark. Guess I will keep pedaling while I get older.

Today I have completed 62.3 % of the distance to my next destination and goal point.

And who is Charles Custer? Check out A Genealogy Hunt.

Day 219 – (AD 1,381) – 22.0 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – No Skittles On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I pedaled my Schwinn 170 another 22.0 miles. Totals now: 29,300.1 miles; 47,154.0 kilometers.


And I have now completed 53.7%, 263.1 miles, of the distance to my next destination and goal point. Overall, I have now completed 33.1% of my total expected distance on Mars.

Yes, my weakness is Skittles. I can go months, years without having Skittles, without any craving. But put a bag of Skittles, an opened bag of Skittles in front of me, there is no will-power that will allow me to only eat 1 Skittle. And I bought a bag of Red, White, and Blue Skittles. I was being patriotic for the 4th of July. And yes, I kept shoving them down my throat. I could not help myself.

And yes, my early morning blood sugar count jumped 59 mg/dL to 179 on the first day after I had chomped down on some Skittles. Two days later I repeated the Skittles’ thing. My early morning blood sugar jumped up, this morning, to 171, up 17 points from the day before. So much for the Red, White, and Blue.

My suppers the last two evenings have been somewhat decent. Yes, the Tomatoes and the Cucumbers were from my Garden Tower.

Chicken with Cucumber served with Bulgur Wheat… This is my introduction to Bulgur Wheat.



And Sambal Glazed Eggplant and Shrimp served with Jasmine Rice.

And today I am trying to answer the question “Who is Charles Custer?”

Day 218 – (AD 1,380) – 20.2 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

Today I pedaled 20.2 miles on my Schwinn 170. Totals are now at 29,278.1 miles; 47,118.6 kilometers.



And I have completed 49.2% of the distance to Tisia Valles.

I have now been pedaling my Schwinn Fitness cycle now for 1,380 days. I began this crazy journey on December 2, 2012. Is it possible that I have begun to get bored?

Checked my biorhythms at Façade.com - http://www.facade.com/biorhythm/.



My Intellectual cycle is almost at minus 100%. This could explain my boredom.
