Yesterday turned out to be laughable, which considering my mood of late, was an improvement. The day was okay, but I managed to get through the day without any of my planned exercise.
First up - the gym at lunch. I remembered my ID, but was almost at the gym when I realized I was taking my lunch bag, rather than my gym bag. So, I turned around and went back for my gym bag. Did the bag switcheroo and headed back for the gym, only to have the rain begin. My umbrella? In the lunch bag. I was scheduled to have a photo taken later in the day and didn't want rained-on-hair, so I just headed back to the office with the thought that I would take Cha-Cha out for a spin later in the evening.
Later in the evening - I'm home and all dressed for cycling. Then I remembered that I thought Clementine Peddleford felt a bit low in the front tire and that might explain my dogged ride yesterday, so I pulled out my never-before-used-bicycle-pump-with-more-stem-options-than-I-could-possibly-identify to give her a lift. End result? Front tire completely flat and the valve stem pushed up under the rim. It is so time for some bicycle maintenance lessons. In the meantime, I've got to try to figure out how to get Cha-Cha to some sort of repair shop. I tried to take off the front wheel, but it appears that would require some dis-assembly of the front brake structure and I am not going there.
Much later in the evening and I still hadn't had any exercise that day. I've been meaning to get some more reading in, so I just decided to take my book and head over to the gym at The Closet and at least treadmill and read. So I packed up and walked over there. Forgot my glasses and I'm incapable of reading without them. I did end up spending some time on the elliptical but got no reading done. And before I screwed things up anymore, I just went to bed.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. When you find yourself in a hole, put down the shovel.
