I broke out the old spreadsheet and based on Gail’s current pace, it isn’t possible to catch her. Unless she slips up, the spreadsheet calculations show that I can’t catch her without seriously ramping up my loss which isn’t possible. She has moved from solid food to shakes so I don’t see her slowing her pace at all.
The office Thanksgiving lunch is the week before Thanksgiving, so I only have a little over two weeks to catch her.
Even if I can’t catch her, I should take the Top Male category for a $100.00 gift card and $80.00. I haven’t given up. In fact, I’m going to push things harder for the last 2 weeks.
47 Minutes – 11.6 Miles
My goal is to get up to 60 minutes by the end of the competition. Once the competition is over I will drop to 3 or 4 rides a week and hopefully keep that up through the end of the year.
Breakfast – Angus burger with cheese
Lunch – None
Dinner – Tuna with salad
Snacks – Pistachios, chicken
Calories – 1150
I’m still worried a bit about the carbs in the chicken. I guess I could wash off the sauce but then it wouldn’t taste so good. 😛
I need the scale to drop like that chart! What I really need is for the stupid weekly pattern to disappear and stay away for the remainder of the competition.
Daily Loss – .4 of a pound
Total Loss – 13.4 pounds
At least for today, the stupid pattern didn’t rear its ugly head. It sure as shootin better not reappear tomorrow after 11.6 miles on the bike!
