I couldn't stop singing this song in my head during my ride this morning. This was the first long ride I've had in a couple months...ahhhhhh. Just what I needed. I did 13.7 miles in about an hour, not bad for the first time back in the saddle for a long ride. A lot of my friends are in Century mode now so they don't have time to ride with me...but I'm doing this for me, not for anyone else. Besides, everyone would probably think I was creepy if I sang Bless the Lord O My Soul for the whole ride. ;)
Incidentally, riding takes me away from my problems for a little while, and that was nice too.
Yesterday I did a great job eating right. I got all my fruits/vegetables for the day, got enough water, and didn't eat garbage in between. We had stuffed pizza for dinner, but I only had one piece and a vegetable to go along with it, and I didn't snack last night so I call that success! It rained all day so I didn't get the cardio I wanted, but I exercised by cleaning my living room and dining room, which were both in really bad shape. When my kids get older, they won't eat like cavepeople anymore, right? :/
I guess that's about all for today. I hope to make this another day of eating well and drinking my water. :)
