Am I Pulling Away From The Pack?

Only time will tell if I am pulling ahead on the race to 165.

Sam – 168

Me – 166.8

I have a nice lead but he hasn’t weighed since Monday. Tomorrow we will find out if I have taken a strong lead or if we are still neck and neck.

This competition really has made my final push much easier.  It is possible I could wrap up this race on Monday. 5 days to lose 1.8 pounds. Not impossible. If I don’t get there by Monday, I think we might have a tie the following Monday.

Weight Statistics


166! That is just crazy. I don’t think in my mother’s wildest dreams she would have thought I would ever see the 160s again. 😀

That of course is a new low not seen since the early 80s and probably 7th grade.

Solid day yesterday both eating and exercise.  I have been eating dinner a little too early but I haven’t been too hungry lately.

Biking Update

The wind continues to aggravate me. It keeps coming from directions that mess me up the whole bike ride. I am not sure why it keeps doing this to me every single day. Please stop oh mighty bringer of the wind.

Wow. In case you didn’t know, it is hot out there.

Once again I looked like I had been swimming after my 10 mile ride.  Once I got home, I needed a little timeout on the stairs before I could get the bike up to the 3rd floor.

Road Market 410 – 10 miles

It is not looking good for my ride today.  It is 6:30 pm and the temperature is still hovering around 95 with a 111 heat index.  Ouch. I am not up for that. The days are getting shorter too which is giving me less time to fit my ride into the cooler comfort zone.  Last night it was dark by the time I got home and the bugs were bouncing off my sunglasses and face. Yuck.

Tip Of The Day

Be more active.

Exercise is all good and fine but it doesn’t always needs to be painful. Simply getting out more and getting away from the couch can help you get healthier and take your mind off of food.

Go to a fair. Go to a museum. Go to a local festival. Just go.

Just don’t reach for that fried snickers bar. 😛

Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow
