Felt like crap. Impending depression I think. Ate like crap today. Went to the skatepark on my BMX bike I got last summer. Felt dumb and old. The last time I went this summer I had a blast. 

Meant to go out as typical/planned but was in bed a bit and got 3 inches of snow. Hoping for a big week (110-115) this week.  We are on break, but I am not feeling breaky yet. Just need to breathe.

PM: Off.

Roads were in decent shape after the snow fall. Most sidewalks are buried. Didn't leave enough time before our tax appointment, which ended with some solid financial news (a sizable refund).

Took a long nap when I got home. Going back out now. Some serious vacation weight bloat going on. Who can add 7-8 lbs in 2-3 days?
