I had good days and bad...ish in the last few days. Mexican food is NOT good for a diet, but good for my tummy!
I have been tracking and for the week I'm down nearly 2700 calories, which is about right for my pound and a bit of weight lost. I haven't been as far under as I could, because I'm not burning it. I have been eating consistently and with a good balance. For the week I have a perfect 50/18/32 split in my food with my protein being nearly 1 gram per pound of weight. My water intake is up and I don't feel like I'm starving.
The down side...very little riding. The weather hasn't been horrible, cool but dry. A lot of is simply a lack of time. I was able to get out and do my long Mukilteo loop today though there is a major discrepancy between my computer reading for climbing (1130') and the website's that I use (2600'). So I will have to look at that coming up. It was nice to get a little ride in at 25 miles and gave a 1000 calorie boost to my numbers. Riding makes all the difference!
I also had good news this weekend. I will be opening a bike shop!!!! Not tomorrow, not the day after but in the next couple of years. The agreement is that once I finish school I begin the work to open my own store. I am very VERY excited by this prospect. Lots to do between now and then and my time is already at a premium so home, school, work and training first.
I'll be around here too...I promise
