Rebounding

I weighed in this morning. I feel like my training has really been helping my weight loss. (I know, duh, right?) The week of Christmas, for example, I kind of went overboard, but because of the training, I was still able to lose a pound. This week, my training increased and I only had a slight New Year's Eve indiscretion in the form of a piece of garlic bread, a cocktail and a piece of pumpkin ice cream pie.

What I took from this week's results is that if I slip up for a day or two and train hard, I can still lose a pound. However, if I only slip up for a meal and train hard, I can still pull big numbers. (Can you tell I've been watching Biggest Loser reruns?) So, when I stepped on the scale this morning, I got a respectable 4.6 pounds, bringing me to a four-week total of 14 pounds.

Next week, I go from 8.5 hours of riding down to 5.5 hours, so I'll have to take that into consideration with my eating.

WOW! I'm impressed. I'm going to give you a tip that isn't useful to you just yet. If you find that your weight stabilizes no matter what you do, take yourself out to Olive Garden or something and have a big, bad meal. It's a good metabolism jumper. Of course, you can only do this once in a great while, so don't cheat. ;-)

I get like this, though. I've found a place for cheat days. Now, if I just quit cheating so much...

I do predict that your Olive Garden day may come sometime near the end of February. ;-)
