The road, the match and two wheels.

Its been three weeks now since I started eating better and I am able to see some real change. The scale tells me I've lost 20lbs which is great, its about what I was expecting to lose in this time frame. Others are mentioning that I look like I've lost weight, these comments come mostly from people who were aware of my dietary change. Things seem to be on track and I'm starting to exercise more often now, I feel much better and have more energy. I am having difficulty staying up past 11pm which I guess is what normal people do, for someone who has traditionally stayed up past 1am it is a little strange. Even now I'm having some difficulty keeping my eye's open.

Last months CDP match went well, we had 13 shooters out on a mostly sunny day. I placed 6th over all which is consistent but not where I want to be! I had two stoppages, one stovepipe and the other was a double feed that really affected my score. The hit friendly target certainly didn't help either! All in all it was a good day and I was glad that my Father was able to come out and shoot. He did well for not having any time to practice or shoot since the previous match.

Lastly, I completed my Motorcycle safety course and I am much more confident because of it. I only wish insurance wasnt so high for someone under 25! I cant wait till next summer so that I can actually afford to ride! I think about riding daily now and every time I see someone on a motorcycle I cant help but be jealous.
The interesting thing is that during the course I was able to ride a Kawasaki Ninja 250, I had no experience on this style bike but I was pleasantly surprised how good they feel. My original ideas on what I wanted in a motorcycle have changed greatly because of this and I now long for a sport style bike. I do have a preference to the naked bikes such as the Triumph Street Triple and have found myself watching every video on youtube.
