I'm trying to get better at climbing, and have a 3,900 foot mountain by my house I've been riding. I have a new visualization technique to help me not succomb to eating temptations. Every time I think about eating something I shouldn't, I imagine climbing that hill with a bowling bowl strapped to my back. Works every time! A heavy bowling bowl is around 16 pounds, which is what I'd like to lose (to start with).
