Since the end of last years race season ,and with some help from a 2 week vacation I managed to put on quite a few extra pounds. So, I decided to give this cleansing diet a shot to try and kick start my weight loss. I have to admit it is a lot tougher than I thought. Thanks to some advice and words of encouragement from the likes of Spot Paul, fatmarc, Dan the Man, and most of all my wife Rachael, I have been pretty good at sticking to the diet. Not to mention I have seen some results and they seem to breed my motivation to stay with it. I am looking forward to Wednesday when I can get back to some sort of normal eating. Did I mention I haven't had a beer since last Saturday, Oh The Pain...
Having said all that, since starting this diet I haven't ridden at all, until this morning. A small group of us got a very early start to take advantage of the frozen trails of Fair Hill. Matt Run Forrest, Ted Logic, Alan the Cleaner, and Kurtee joined me for some frozen fun. I was told riding while on this diet was hard, I was ready for the worst. Surprisinglg I felt OK, I mean I didn't feel great but I was able to get in close to 2.5 hours and never cmae close to a bonk. Even when Alan was laying down a brutal pace through Gallaher, and again on 5 bridges, I don't know what got into him but he was riding really well.
Well I just hope for a another freeze tonight and a little more energy for a ride tomorrow.
Only three and a half days left.
