Maybe tonight I'll mix cookie dough ice cream with nutella! Or maybe make a sandwich with nutella on the bread and cookie dough ice cream in the center. Omg that sounds awesome!

Also my housemate has a dogfish head punkin ale she wants me to try (she's on antibiotics and can't imbibe) I might try the float with that as well and see how it tastes. Dessert for tonight and tomorrow and the day after that are decided!

I want to try that beer. I also think the Dogfish Head Raison d'etre (sp?) has one of the best names I've ever seen.

It also has one of the most interesting flavors of any beer I've had. I can't drink it socially because I love taking my time with it.

If you're looking at hitting a true racing weight, you shouldn't sustain it for more than a month or two. It's hard on the body to be sitting at really low body fat all year.

made a glaze/syrup of french press espresso & nutella - drizzled that over vanilla ice cream.
It was grand.

later on I had company over and made fresh-fruit sorbet, also with nutella glaze (but no coffee)

truth.
I only want to be at true racing weight for my peak in the year - my body can't hold it healthily for more than a month. I'll be within throwing distance of it much of the year, but super thin and low bf will wreck you over long periods of time.

I think I've identified my problem. My goal weight is still well above all of your all's current weight.

That's what the dude who did my LT test told me, and what I've read elsewhere, but it seems like a tough balance to strike. Now that I'm not racing I don't mind being hungry sometimes, and I'm not as worried about recovery, but during the season I'm always worried about being under-fueled for workouts and races, or not recovering properly. Also, the intensity definitely ramps up my appetite in a way that easier rides at a higher volume doesn't.

I put on some weight when I started actually training and racing this year, some of it definitely muscle but I'm sure I added some fat too. My goal for now is to get down to 125 and stay there through the holidays.

I think this is where you need to start counting calories and keeping track of things. Also, if you're gaining 2-3 lbs during the bulk of your race season, I wouldn't worry about it depending on what your power is doing. This is also a good reason to take a small break between peaks and do a mini-base of lsd just to bring the weight down a hair.

Some of us aren't worried about that yet. =P
But if you're 10 lbs off your weight, losing 2 lbs/month would put you where you want to be in time for race season.

I must be the person you listed as "Issasquash." This makes me wonder if people think my user name is "Is a squash". Sigh.

Anyhow, my goal is to get down to 135-140 pounds. I'm currently at 146, so not the 20 pounds listed above. I've updated the spreadsheet.
