My eating has been better, even with the large amount of ice cream that disappeared one day. I’ve been weighing myself every morning again, although I have yet to post it here. There is a definite downward trend. It dropped six pounds in three days, then jumped up about three pounds.
It’s only Thursday, but it feels like the week is over. I still have to work tomorrow.
Robin and I rode bikes to her volleyball game Monday evening. I signed up for the next session beginning 7/16. This could get interesting… We went to a restaurant across the street called “The Brewery” after the games. I drank water and had a spinach salad. Success with self-control!
Tuesday morning brought a massive headache of near-migraine proportions. I wasn’t on a bike, or even at work. Later in the day I did install the front rack on Robin’s bike.
Wednesday morning was again filled with that massive headache. I had to work. I called Robin and she drove me to work.
Today, Thursday, I happily rode the recumbent to work. The weather forecast has been calling for a heat wave beginning today. It was still pleasant on the way in to work.
It was 103 degrees when I left work. It was hot and sunny, but with a bit of a breeze. The ride home was actually quite pleasant. I had just got the bike indoors and undressed when I heard from Tim. He was out on a ride and wanted me to meet up with him. I got re-dressed and headed out for another 19 miles.
I’m now at 460 miles for the month of June. I’d like to hit 500, but I’ve only got two days left, and I have other things to do. I might get up early and try to get extra miles in to hit 500. I’m also a part of a group on Google+ that are shooting for 500 miles in July, but I’ve got plenty of time for that, and I actually hope to surpass 700.
I’ve been beer-free for a week. Just a few weeks more before I decide if I will allow myself beer again, and at what quantities.

Sounds like you are making good progress on several fronts! Sucks that you were rewarded for your restraint with a massive headache, though. Keep it up!
Mentally I feel good. The headache was totally gone this morning. I just need to keep my self focused and stay away from restaurants and bars for a while.
Beer gets rid of headaches !!!
That’s not very helpful of you. 🙂
