I'LL START TOMORROW.....


This morning I was all excited to start on Commodore's No Limits "training camp." I asked Steve what he had in mind to do for the day and he said, "Watch the game." (Pittsburgh Steelers, who, it turns out, won and are going to the Superbowl.) So, if he was watching football, I would get to bike all afternoon and not feel guilty!

So I went to church and got home at noon, sat to update my blogs/email, and Steve said, "Wanna go to Wal-Mart?" But what about the game? "I don't have to watch the kick-off, I can watch whatever's left when we get home." So we went to Wal-Mart and I did the grocery shopping and we got home about 3pm and I put the groceries away and by then I felt whupped. And I had a bowl of ice cream and a Corona with lime and sat in the sun reading Miles from Nowhere, which I finally broke down and ordered for myself after wishing umpteen times in the past couple of years that I had my own copy to read and re-read whenever I want.

I'm afraid I succumbed to the Common Man Syndrome. Faced with feeling like I didn't want to go biking after all, I bailed and just read about it instead.

~Sigh~

Tomorrow. Definitely tomorrow.

Heh Ellie. Don't know about you but I definitely set a record of sites I visited today and comments I got back.

Thanks for the great idea! It was a lot of fun.

Heh heh heh... Sorry but that is pretty bad - exchanging a ride for an ice cream AND a Conora.

Looks like we are both singing "tomorrow... tomorrow..."

Hey, I'm with you there! I was a total sloth on Sunday. Its Soooo easy to get distracted from your workout schedule to accommodate loved ones' needs (and whims). Must have been one of those lazy Sundays because I never even got out of my PJs all day, and no blogging or anything!

Don't feel bad, I succumbed to comman man syndrome Sunday also. It was rainy and dreary in Hawaii and I just could not get motivated. Monday is a great day to start :)

I for one am happy you opted to read... otherwise I'd never have heard of this book!

Seriously, don't beat yourself up, it's only one day.
