I had a good ride with Tim this morning. We met at Sunergos for coffee. He had planned a road ride heading out of town, but he had a mechanical issue with the bike early in the ride. We rode back to his house to get another bike. This shortened his available time, so we stuck to another day of just riding around (JRA).
We really had no goal. I wasn’t feeling strong (hell, my legs still hurt) so we didn’t ride fast. I brought my camera along for the ride, but never even got it out.
After he went home, I sat at Cumberland having food and beer. I ended the day at about 43 miles.
Once home, I did yard work and housework. I really need to go grocery shopping again, but I hate grocery shopping and I’m constantly putting it off to the last minute. I’ll do it another day.
I realized today how lazy I’ve become recently. I’m having trouble doing the things that need to be done. My house is a mess. I’m letting things fall behind. I’m not even eating properly, and I’m gaining weight again.
I’m not drinking enough water. I did drink out of my water bottle during the ride, but then I was drinking beer before heading home. We’ve all made jokes about hydrating with beer, but beer is lousy for hydration. I spent a good part of the day after getting home being dehydrated and feeling sick. I drank a huge glass of water which helped. I’m now drinking a huge mug of herbal tea.
Yep, I’m in a mental funk. Even when I’m not, I’m lazy and eat poorly. I’m not sure how I got this way over the last few years. I’ve made drastic lifestyle changes before. I think it’s time to do it again.
