The day I’m writing this is a Wednesday, and on Wednesdays I usually participate in a Beer and Bikes group. Today is one of those days when I really need the beer and biking (maybe the beer more). It was a very rough day at work, but since this is a public blog, I’ll refrain from any details. Suffice it to say, I’m looking forward to getting out and relaxing tonight with some nice biking and tasty brews.
It also happens to be a week when we’re in the middle of a heat wave. The temps for the bike ride tonight will be in the 90s. That will certainly help burn off some extra calories, as the heart needs to pump a lot harder in warm weather. One of the advantages of a bike (different than running) is that you have some built in wind blowing in your face as you ride. It makes hotter days like this feel a little bit more tolerable. Granted it still might be a two water bottle night.
I’m also looking forward to burning some calories to help my weight loss. Being at a calorie deficit gets frustrating very quickly. Because I’m riding tonight, and most likely running tomorrow morning, I have a bit more of a cushion in what I can ingest. So the beers tonight will be a slight bit more guilt-free. Granted, I wish beers like Select 55 had more taste to them, since with 55 calories I could down a couple of those and not worry, but alas, beer just isn’t made that way.
I’m going to close this blog with my latest instagram picture from the other day, as it was a beautiful sunrise, and it makes me feel good about the world when I look at it.
