Rain doesn’t matter much today because it is Wednesday which I always take off from my ride.
My ride on Tuesday went pretty good except my water bottle popped open and spilled out all of my water before I noticed it.
Good thing it was just a 10 mile ride.
Road Marker 410 – 10 Miles
Once again it was overcast with almost no sun or wind, so optimal ride conditions.
Whoops forgot to weigh before having my coffee and eating lunch. I slept late because I couldn’t sleep at all last night.
Yesterday’s Meal Plan
Breakfast – Broiled chicken
Lunch – Avocado salad
Dinner – Broiled chicken and salad

Too many calories, but after my ride it was just about 1200 net calories.
Tip Of The Day
Stay away from Sugar Bombs known as soft drinks. Empty calories that can really add up.
I used to drink two to three cans a day. Some days even more. I thought there was no way I would be able to give it up.
I hate water so it just seemed an impossible task to go from sugary greatness to water. As impossible as it seemed, I was able to drop coke without much problem. For most of the first ten months all I did was drink water.
In November, I picked up Coffee and some Green Tea with splenda.
Caffeine can cause hunger in some people, so water is best. I drink plenty of water, coffee and tea.
I probably drink about 128 ounces of water and coffee a day. Most people state that you should drink at least 64 ounces a day. I have no problem blowing past that number.
With my bike riding, staying hydrated is super important. Make sure you drink at least 64 ounces and stay away from the sugar.
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
