Looking for Windows

28

2014

The-Window-soozedAnyone who rides a bike understands “the window” − a brief period of time when you head out for a ride because you know it won’t happen otherwise. Could be a small clearing on the weather radar map. Or the time between waking up and having to head to the office. Or sometimes it’s the time between hitting send on one project email before starting another one.

And these days, it’s trying to find time between running a new business and wanting to ride. Or rather, needing to ride.

You know. That window.

    I have historically procrastinated way to much and a lot of my windows close ONLY though fault of mine. My “new leaf” has been to leap through that open window and stopping trying to predict how long it will be there.

    I hear you, Suzanne. I honestly have something going on inside me that makes riding my bike a priority each day. There’s always an open window, and I hope you keep finding yours.

Sugar Alternatives for Energy and Hydration

Question: I am using the homebrew sugar formulations (sometimes added to green tea).  I am also trying to wean myself off 1/2 dose adrenalean “lip tonic delivery system” (biorhythm brand- caffeine, hoodia g, synephrine, yohimbe) capsule for energy.

My question is other than juice, can you suggest modifications in lieu of table sugar for energy and hydration.

Answer:

Both raw/organic honey or agave can work great in the homebrew (substitute in the same quantities for the sugar, or to taste), but you do have to shake well in order to make sure they don’t settle out.  Have you tried either of these?  Also, make sure to use at least the minimum amount of salt recommended in the homebrew as the temps rise, you need the sodium replacement if you’re sweating.
