Cycling And Weight Loss – Pushing the panic button


June 2013

Put enough miles and enough effort into cycling and eventually your inordinate ass will disappear.  Keep putting them in and you’ll have my problem:

Somebody call the Wha-mbulance! It’s time to pull out the big guns…

After being sick and still putting in 80 miles last week, my weight dropped significantly.

I weighed in at 157 the other day (and I’m rounding up).  At 6’0″ that’s getting light so to reverse my fortune I took the kids to Dairy Queen after the youngest’s ball game last night (my youngest got her first base hit!!!).

On that note, I pull up to the drive thru and what do I see on the menu?  Dude, somebody thought to put an Oreo Blizzard into a waffle cone. Sweet Jesus on a pogo stick!  Somebody call the Government or something!!!  That’s cheating!  There should be a law against that or something!  Oh wait, I don’t want to give any of the army of politicians one more thing to rail against.  Never mind Mr. or Mrs. Politician – please forget that you even read this in the first place.  It shouldn’t be too hard, you manage to forget your past within a week anyway.

In any event, over the next few days I’m going to have to up the calories a bit to reverse that loss – and what a wonderful problem to have.  What do you know, sometimes it’s pretty good to be me.

*Disclaimer – Sweet Jesus on a pogo-stick is not meant in a derogatory sense.  Jesus was born and died something like 1,900 years before pogo-sticks were ever invented.  Imagine the smile on his face at trying one out for the first time…  That’d be one smiling Jesus right there.

    Watch the weight loss…probably from either water or muscle…

      Believe it or not, I just have a tough time eating enough to replace what I burn… With the cold it could have been water though. I’ll keep an eye on it. Thanks.
