|Where I work|
After work, I met up with my buddy for a quick rendezvous to the bar. The trip was short and mostly was to just catch up on some scores on Sports Center as well as the local gossip. I'm trying to taper down the booze intake now. Starting today is a new focus on my cycling. I figured that I'm in a new position where I have to figure out what inspires me in life and what I want to set goals for. I've always considered cycling to be that experience. Therefore, I'm going to put a new found focus on dropping some weight, getting healthier and mashing those cranks pretty hard. I realize that I'll never be a pro cyclist. In fact, I don't even think I would want to. However, I do have a competitive nature and I want to make the best of what I can in the amateur bike racing world. We'll see what happens.
Life is truly what you make of it. Lately, I've been abusing my life. I haven't had any expectations or ambitions. This isn't going to change immediately overnight but I do feel a change coming on. I've got some great friends who have helped give me a little push and yank me up by my sandal straps. A little outside motivation goes a long way. So that's about it for now regarding the uneventful life of Jimmy Deane.
