As I’ve mentioned, I track everything I eat. I later look up calories, or make an estimate. I believe this is key to my weight loss.
There have been days when I overeat, and wanted to abandon calorie tracking for a day or two.
Now that I’m dating, going out to eat seems to happening more often. I’ve still been plugging away on my calorie tracking though. There are a few scary numbers in there, but I try to offset them with lighter days.
I haven’t ridden my bike in way too long, I’ve had days with horrible overeating, yet I’m still losing weight, although slower. I can live with that.
I’m not going to blame the lack of bike riding on dating. She’s not around through the week, and I could have ridden except for other things that have come up. I was going to ride today even with the threat of rain, but I just don’t feel well enough today. Yesterday, I was sitting around the house in the morning waiting for the cable guy to fix my broadband and had to go into work late, so no riding.
I will be riding the 40+ mile RCCS ride on Sunday, but I’m not sure if the time off the bike will mean I’m refreshed and ready, or that it’ll kill my legs. I guess I’ll find out.
