ABC News: Dems Fear Clinton’s ‘Tonya Harding’ Option
One Democratic Party official called Clinton’s strategy “The Tonya Harding Option” — the idea that Clinton’s only path to the gold medal is to destroy her leading competitor.
Started the day by skipping my workout. Had planned to do an interval session on the trainer at 4:30 am. Unfortunately I stayed up until 11:30 and just couldn’t pull myself out of bed to workout. I will try and squeeze a workout in tonight.
Breakfast today was a Clif Bar. I had a leftover homemade Beef enchilada and a Zone Bar for lunch. Add a zone bar snack about 3:00 pm. Then I had to run to CVS to pick up buns for dinner and I grabbed a Hostess Frosted Honey Bun. So much for self control. The we had Turkey Sausage and French Fries.
My daughter came home from school sick and I ended up not working out at all. Grrrrr.
I finally have a goal in mind. Since I messed up and have done virtually nothing towards training and have gained about 30 pounds since July of ’07 I need to stop. My goal now is to ride for a personal best in the 6 hours of Ithaca on July 19th. This is going to require a great deal of discipline on my part. I need to drop 30 or more pounds and get my long ride up to 6 hours in 19 weeks. Unfortunately weather is not cooperating for riding outside, so I need to get a bunch of miles in on the trainer. This means I have to get up at 4 am and ride before work. With a family, this is actually easier than riding outside because outside time takes away from family time. Tomorrow morning starts the first training session towards my new goal.
I also have to control my intake of food, not just quantity but quality. I need to take my lunch to work and avoid fast food like the plague. This is my biggest downfall. I definitely have been lacking in self control. My inspiration comes from Fatty. He finds time to ride with a much more crazy schedule than mine.
Here’s to starting over…
