Get to the gym at least three days a week.

Cut at least 500 calories from my daily intake.

Avoid emotional eating.

Reduce the fat in my diet - which means largely dairy products.

Still hitting about 246 the new evil that won't go away.. At least it means I still don't have to slide that bottom weight on the scale to the 250 slot for now

Put in 330 miles
Swim 11 laps (pool size tbd )
Commute 5x by bike
Clean up and get ready to sell my Giro 26. Been putting it off for a while and after a few attempts I won't be going back to it from my Challenge Hurricane.

I didn't post Monday's weight yet for me. On Monday I was at 226.2, down 0.4 from the previous Monday. I rode all of 28 mountain bike miles that week.

Today, Friday, four days later I'm down to 223.4 which is 2.8 pounds more loss. My body seemed to be resisting getting under 225 but once I did get under that weight, this week, my weight seems to be correcting itself to where it should be with my expected average of 1.5 pounds per week. I've only ridden about 14 mountain bike miles so far this week. I also swim laps once a week for about an hour, lift weights about twice a week for about 40 minutes each session, and run about three time a week for about 30 minutes for two of the runs and maybe also do a one hour run. I rarely do more than an hour of anything except the MTB rides which are generally about 1.5 hours long. I may do two or three rides per week. It's not about the mileage it's about how many calories you net per day.

So how'd I do... Well ? The Bee is Back! Had an issue with the new beau and spent the weekend without him.... bad news for my love life but great news for my biking and weight. Down a few - and rode on the trainer Fri and Sat. Sat did Chris Charmichael's DVD - Criterium. Holy Moly That was the hardest workout of my life. Makes the Century seem like a walk in the park. MAy have over done it as spent the evenng nausous..and could not eat much.

Classic bonk. A little food or energy bar half way through would be a good idea for next time, and then some more when you finish. That'll help a lot.

Great job Joel!!

Thanks for the advice. So I though eating something for a one hour workout was stupid.... But maybe I should heed your advice. On top of being nauseous cause of the workout...I have also had a lot of emotions going on with issues with the beau. Never uses to be the type who could not eat - but still was not eating all that much today at lunch.

So I was worried maybe I should not work out that hard...but I think I like your solution - eat my 100 calorie bar half way thru... though doesn' t it take a lot longer than onehour to deplete your glycogen stores etc???
