Started the memorial day weekend well, took a couple extra days off, and haven’t wasted them.
I had a serious plateau at 220 and 219 #’s. I was stuck there for almost week and half. Nothing is more depressing than counting every calorie you consume, and every erg you expend in exercise to not see any movement of the scale. Last time I did this, I had several plateaus and I know I was able to work through them, so I stuck with it (to be fair, my birthday was in the middle of this and I had a major splurge day. Gordon Birsch Czech Pilsner. Yummy.
Fortunately, I finally broke through my plateau, and I dropped almost overnight to 216#’s. Back on the track of 3#’s a week of weight loss (that is fast enough that my diet tracker chastises me for losing too fast).
The real plus is that about a month ago, I got back on the bicycle. There are some great loops near my house, and I have been exploring. I have a couple of 25 mile loops, which equates to about 1700 calories burned in an hour and 40 minutes.
