I guess the 100 milers are really paying off after all. I've lost 6 lbs since Thanksgiving mostly due to doing the 100 milers every week. I've also noticed that my appetite has also been curbed so things are definitely headed in the right direction. I've always been challenged to just hold my weight at a constant level during the holidays and to have it actually drop 6 lbs is very encouraging. I know it's more than just water weight being lost as the weight is coming off and staying off.......and not vacillating up and down from day to day. I've even enjoyed a daily serving or two of cherry pie and also added a few potato chips to my snacks just for self fulfillment and the weight continues to drop. I guess that just shows how much weight I had and still have to lose.
Now, If I can get those 10 additional pounds off along with my new lightweight bike maybe the hills wont be so menacing come spring!
Five centuries over 5 weeks. One more to go next weekend.
Saturday it was 29 degrees when we started. I could tell pretty quickly I had actually overdressed.....The group was probably 1/2 or less it's normal size. When we finished I think the temps were in the low-mid forties. The wind was not quite as bad as I expected. When I got home after the ride I had to spread 55 bales of pine straw. Ugh.
