Blew my diet tonight

That's right. I am on a "no 2nd helpings" type diet. The problem with me is that I just eat too much. I start in on something I like and don't stop until I've eaten too much. Tonight, I ate too much.

But I have justification! 50 mile ride planned for tomorrow morning. That's the longest distance I've ridden in about 8 years.

Dinner tonight was pasta. Sauce was olive oil, chardonnay, lemon juice, a little butter, salt/pepper. I added some packet cooked salmon (added some olive oil, butter, onion, salt/pepper, lots of lemon juice to the packet). So I had 2nds tonight for fuel for tomorrow's ride. The dish was outstanding. Even the kids ate (amazing, huh? they are 6 and 4 years old).

Tomorrow, back to the diet.

I'm looking forward to the ride. The most I've done since I started back up again (3 months ago now) is 37 miles. 50 will be a good workout for me. Wish me luck!

Nice recipe.

Don't be too hard on yourself. The world didn't stop spinning. That 50 miles is going to be fun.

I blew my diet last night, too. Except, I ate of the forbidden chocolate.

I don't know about these diet obsessions I keep reading about on here. When I was younger, real cyclists were famous for devouring everything in sight. Always hungry and still thin :-)

If I was riding 50 miles tomorrow, I don't think I would worry too much about dieting today (although I might make it carbs more than protein).

Post ride report: I feel great! Ride went well for me today. I was feeling pretty good for almost the entire ride. One 5 mi section with an in your face wind was pretty brutal, but the rest was good.

50mi. Avg: 15. Pretty flat.

I also lost a little more weight. That's good too!

I blew my diet everyday since the day I started... I also started riding my bike the day I started my 'diet'
I average 25-50 miles per day and dropped 18 pounds in one month.
