We recently took a trip to Florida and in doing so I didn’t touch a bike in a week. I started riding again the morning after I got home and it was actually not as painful as I thought it was going to be, I had planned a meager 26 mile ride that morning but stretched an extra 10 miles out of it because at the 26 mile mark I was still feeling saucy. I kept to the diet while on vacation and it solidified the fact in my mind that the mass population of the world still does not get “it”. Every restaurant was a new exercise in trying to explain to the waitstaff that “no in fact I do not want chicken on that grilled chicken salad.” My Brother-in-law took us to a pretty cool place called Tijuana Flats that had a delicious black bean and rice burrito and offered a whole grain wrap instead of the starched flour tortilla that comes standard. They had a hot sauce bar with something like 15 different choices, none of which were all THAT hot. I somehow actually managed to lose weight on vacation which I found odd because the bulk of my physical activity while there was throwing my kids all over the pool and walking through Downtown Disney. I was relived when I stepped on the scale the morning after I arrived back home.
I’m down to 232lbs…..only 32 more pounds to go.
