I wanted to write about the new love of my life since mid November but I was too busy to do so......but today seems the right time to do it. But before I do so, I gotta say something about what happened today first. Actually I'm feeling a bit emotional right now because today is the last day I saw my bicycle. I handed it over to someone else.....someone who needs it more than I do right now. Been thinking about letting it go for quite some time now. But I couldn't do it until today.
With the help from my Mother's friend......she managed to find a school girl who needs a bicycle to go to school everyday. I don't know why.....the minute I found out about it, my heart was ready for it. I was ready to let it go. So off we went to see the girl and handed it over to her. It was then when it really hit me that I was never going to see my bicycle ever again.
It was funny how excited everybody was to see my bicycle.....they complimented on how good it looks....how fancy it is....and how surprised they were about the condition of the bicycle. They imagined earlier that I was giving away an old, old worn out bicycle....but my bicycle was not like that at all. But when they found out why I decided to give it away, they understood my decision. Everybody was so happy......and of course, so was I. I never thought I would be feeling happy about it. I guess it was a mix of happy and sad at the same time.
The girl is 12 years old......she will be able to use that bicycle for the next five years of schooling. That bicycle will be of great service to her during that time. Before this, she walked to school everyday. I'm so glad they found the right girl for my bike. She had the height....and she rode it well. My bike is suitable for tall people. And she fits the bill.
I'll always remember Mr Raleigh and how much fun I had riding it all these years. But now I have a new love.....and my new love is special in its own way. It's pink in colour and it's one of the best thing that ever happened in my life.
In mid November this year, I learned about the pedal exerciser from my Mom. She knew about it when she went to do her physiotherapy at the hospital. She knows that I would benefit from this simple machine and when I was introduced to it, I immediately feel in love with it at first cycle. From then onwards, there was no turning back. It has become one of my daily routines to cycle at home. It has helped me tremendously because now I can cycle at any time of the day and as many times as I like. No more excuses to not do my exercise everyday.
I can cycle while watching TV, I can cycle while doing certain work at my table, I can cycle while browsing the internet, in fact, I can even cycle in my own garden too! Yes! It's so portable and lightweight, I can take it anywhere with me.
But the best thing about finding out about the pedal exerciser is, how much it has helped me with my muscle cramps....I don't have it anymore. It seems to have disappeared. I also feel so much better, I can walk faster. I have the stamina to do more work everyday. I can even see how my abs and thighs are getting more and more toned.
Another great thing about it is that how many people I know has benefited from it too. My Mom and I have been promoting it to all our friends and we found out that many of them are suffering from muscle cramps, tingling and numbness at their feet. Old people and those who are having health problems can benefit from this machine. I'm not that old, but I do have health issues. But that is not the main reason why I got this pedal exerciser. Whatever the reason may be......the main thing is that I am so thankful that Allah sent me this product at this age. At least I get to use it when I am still young. It keeps me fit and keeps me happy everyday.
