Trying to decide if what I just did indicates “playing it safe” or “epic fail”. I’m leaning towards the former.
Went for a bike ride this morning. I carried water, but clearly not enough. I also rode 3 miles out on the trail not considering I’d then have to ride back. I’m about 1.25 miles from my car right now. But I’m feeling clammy and shaky, and I’m out of water. I’m also starting to feel a little nauseous. So I called my dad to come and get me. I feel like a dumbass. I mean seriously… Couldn’t I make it the mile and change back to my car? But I don’t think I can. Rather than chance it I’m going to say I played it safe. I’m sitting in the shade and trying not to cry.
I’ll think about the positive. I rode 5 miles this morning. That’s the farthest I’ve ever gone. Usually it’s easy for me to talk myself out of exercise while I’m here, but today I didn’t. I need to remind myself that I’m still an overweight woman trying to get her shit together, not a seasoned athlete- so it’s ok to cut myself a little slack. Overall, this morning is a win.
