Day 131: Not enough hours in the day

14 05 2010

Lately, I’ve planned to do more riding but I never seem to find the time. Each day, I plan to ride my bike after work, but by the time I get home, eat dinner and let my food settle before riding, I’m tired from the day at work and laziness takes over. And I have to allow time to do these blog posts (I’ve committed to doing a post every day. I’ve made it to day 131. I’m not giving up yet).

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a morning person. In order to get in a decent length ride before work, I’d have to get up around 5 a.m. and I don’t see that happening. Weekends lately are even not working out. Tomorrow we have a repairman coming to the house to do some work. But I plan to ride after he leaves.

There just never seems to be enough hours in the day to get everything done that I want to do.

I guess it’s time for me to finish reading Chris Carmichael’s book, “The Time-Crunched Cyclist: Fit, Fast and Powerful in 6 Hours a Week.” I bought the book last fall but I guess I was too time-crunched to bother reading it. 🙂 I got to page 10 and never got back to it. It’s a good book with what looks like a lot of great information, so maybe it’s just what I need right now. I definitely want to become fit, fast and powerful. Maybe there’s a sequel called “young, skinny, and awesome.” Hell, at this point I’d settle for just not so time-crunched.

How many days/hours a week do you work out? How do you find time for your workouts?

Today’s food journal:

— Sesame bagel = 310 cal.
— Strawberry banana smoothie = 260

— Grilled cheese sandwich on whole wheat = 431
— Potato chips = 150
— Iced tea = 0

Dinner (too time-crunched to eat dinner today)
— Peanut butter Builder Bar = 270

Life is a journey. Enjoy the ride!
