The Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak

My body isn't keeping up with my motivation to do things. Tonight riding home on my bike I felt like I was weaker than when I first started riding last year. I felt like I've been sitting on my butt all year watching tv, eating McDonalds. But maybe my body doesn't recover very quickly. But still, my forward progress seems to have stalled. I know I'm in better shape than I was a year ago, but I'm also not progressing. Or so it feels right now.
Tomorrow morning I'm getting up early to ride with some guys from the SPBRC, just to get my workout in before it gets too hot. I'm a night owl so that will be tough to change. 5am ride start? Ouch. I'll be done riding by 7am. My body might be willing but my spirit is weak.
