Got home late yesterday due to having to work later than normal. I had my day all planned out before I got to work which included getting off early and trying to extend my mileage from 10 to at least 20 or more miles. Didn’t happen. I got to work and found out that I was going to have work the desk dispatching calls all day. Which also meant I wasn’t going to be able to get any cycling in. Not a total loss though. I did stop at the track and got my 10,000 steps in for the day.
As much as I like getting out on my bike and ride, it’s important to me to get out and do something to enjoy the outdoors, even if it’s just walking on the walking track. Most of last year I just didn’t feel like getting out and doing anything. Once I made it home from work, I didn’t have the energy to do anything but to shower and relax in front of the television. I gained weight, my A1c went up and basically felt like crap. Now that I have my health back, for the time being, I’m taking advantage of it and getting out and doing something. In the short time that I’ve been feeling better, I’ve been able to get out and ride, three times so far, I’ve gone to the track a few times and my A1c has come down a few points. When I feel better I’m able to take better care of myself.
