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.
