I re-wrote this posting a few times now. Halfway tempted to not write anything until I did something beneficial for myself or did something worthwhile. I would not be holding myself too responsible for my actions if I did that. For the past two days exercise and a proper diet has seemed to slip from my grasp. In my defense, I stayed up way too late a few nights ago and lost a lot of sleep. My tails been dragging for a few days now. I also over ate last night thinking that I would be riding today and needed the calories. Ended up not riding. It’s a hard mindset to break. I do need calories, but I can stand to be in a deficit. Add to that quitting Starbucks, which for anyone who drinks coffee everyday can agree, it has been painful. Even if I have a cup of coffee at work it’s not the same. Starbucks coffee has to have more caffeine then any regular cup you can make at home. At least I’m saving $5.95 a day.
Not many goals reached today, but I think that writing down my thoughts and feeling about all of this is somehow helping me to be better at it. Till next time.
