Thoughts of the Day:

Completely lazy this morning. Couldn’t get myself together in time to hit the gym and get to work. At least I ate a healthy breakfast at home, and loaded up on coffee. I left for work this morning in a foul disposition – better preparation last night would have helped me stick to my schedule this morning. It’s like I’m swinging the bat with a blindfold on.

The good thing was lunch – I stuck to the plan and had 3 hard boiled eggs. The protein took the edge off the hunger, and it made me feel a little better about the day. Hey – I actually fouled a pitch off.

I hit the gym HARD this evening. Started with a half hour of strength training, and then transitioned to a 2 mile recovery run. Finished the day off with a 19.7 mile bike. By the time I got home, I was starving….so thank Zeus for angel hair pasta. By the time I crashed for the night I was fried, bu also thrilled at the feeling of resisting eating crappy fast food for dinner. It’s like I refrained from swinging at a few pitches in the dirt and worked out a walk. I’ve got a man on base – now I need to get him into scoring position.

Thoughts of the Day:

While I was up early enough to get my full Monday morning workout in, I was tired by the end of it because I slept like crap. I don’t sleep well still – and I’ve had 47 years of practice. God I’m a slow learner. That’s strike 1 for today.

The workout this morning was awesome. 23 miles on the bike and a 2 mile run averaging sub 10 per mile. Felt awesome by the time I was finished. So what did I do?
I was waaaaay too hungry after the morning workout and I caved. I ate a crappy breakfast. Strike 2. And that was a fastball down the middle that I just get zip by me.

I struck out by lunch. Seriously? Panda Express? Want to talk about flailing away at a curveball in the dirt. What the hell was I thinking. Good thing I get another at-bat tomorrow.

Cooked dinner at home. Limited how much I took in for dinner – basically wound up making a week’s worth of angel hair pasta. I need to make a concerted effort to eat healthier. I know this. It’s no fun. It’s not easy. That’s why I don’t do it. Damn I’m lazy. Side retired. 3 up, and 3 down.
