Day 27+22 – (AD 1,188) – 20.2 Miles – Jim’s Trek Part V – On My Schwinn 170

Good Day,

This morning I cycled 20.2 miles on my Schwinn 170. Current totals – 25,433.1 miles; 40,930.7 kilometers.

I really like my new schedule of cycling: 60 minutes 3 times a week and Sunday a flex day for pedaling. I am also now doing 200 sit-ups 3 days a week.

Like I said I love to eat and I do not want to reinstate a diabetes medication/chemical regime. My early morning blood sugar count was 96 mg/dL.

Last night’s supper was Butter Chicken, all cooked in the Instant Pot. Found the recipe at My Heart Beets. I didn’t have any Ghee or Clarified Butter in the house so I substituted Bacon Drippings. I also added Kale, Carrots, and Celery to the recipe.

I have now completed 531.5 miles on my virtual Trek on Mars. This morning I have completed 68.6% of the next leg of my journey to the next destination and goal point.



Overall I have now completed 4.0% of my Mars’ Trek and journey.

Work continues on our newest quilt, NPCF… and it has a new name “Hope Cures!”.
