I planned to start riding today: I figured out a nice route and made sure the bike was ready so I could jump on it right after work.
Then this morning the wind showed up.
Riding in the wind, especially cold wind, is hard. Worse than hills, worse than rain. Still, I would have gone if I had the right clothing; long sleeves would have been enough. However, it turns out that losing a bunch of weight means your warm clothes that used to be just a little too snug are now oversized to the point of being non-functional.
So: alternate plan (this is a year of alternate plans): avoid the wind, order some warmer cycling clothes (REI will have them ready for pickup today!), and make bake some bread.
And if I can’t pick up clothes today: a ride on the indoor trainer tomorrow!
