Getting back into territory not seen since I had a stomach virus 6 weeks ago. What am I doing differently?

This past week, Philly had great weather. I spent most of the week riding to work, even if I had business meetings to go to. One night, after my "main" work was over, I had to go to a once-a-year meeting for everyone who is in my workgroup. In the auditorium, I found myself seated next to a woman wearing an impeccable business suit, a Louis Vuitton scarf and carrying a Prada handbag. I had on an orange cycling jersey and was carrying my helmet. I think I was by far the better dressed.

I had a good week, helped in part by being stuck at a jobsite without lunch one day, and without wheels to go get any. I'm hoping I can keep a slightly more reasonable version of this going over the next 3 weeks or so - I'd love to be in the 180s in time for the Tour de Cure on June 11.

05/16 = 217.5 lbs Ahh! That's better - now we're moving in the right direction. The challenge this week is going to be dealing with the weather (those storms that delayed the Tour de California? I live near them). It's not the rain and cold so much but the change from relatively warm to relatively cold saps my energy.

Missed logging in last week due to traveling but did weigh myself before hitting the road and I was happy with the results. Haven't been able to ride due to traveling but did get a run in. Tried to eat right while traveling but the lack of excercise seemes to have sent me the wrong way. I am going to start riding in the rain and learn to like itbecause I don't think it will ever stop raining here in Central PA. They are calling for rain all week long. At least it will be a semi-warm rainy week.

03/02/2011 = 430.0 Bought a scale and weighed myself for the first time in over 6 years.
03/14/2011 = 424.6
03/21/2011 = 420.6
04/04/2011 = 417.2
04/11/2011 = 416.4
04/18/2011 = 410.6
04/25/2011 = 410.8
05/02/2011 = 406.4
05/09/2011 = 403.2
05/16/2011 = 405.0

I wasn't able to go riding last week so I pretty much expected this gain. I was only able to go walking 3 times last week. I'll be able to get back in the swing of things this week though and I will be able to ride more.
