I’m finally seeing some progress with my diet and exercise regimen. For breakfast I measure 1 cup of cereal, raisin bran, then for lunch I have a slim fast shake then for dinner it’s usually a salad which is a pretty good salad with that salad mix that you can buy in bags, then I add a hard-boiled egg chopped up, 1/3 of a can of tuna, half a celery cut into pieces, sliced and peeled cucumber, to add more flavor I add a tiny bit of bacon bits and some sunflower seed nuts meant for salads and then top it off with some ranch dressing.
Yeah OK, some might say that the bacon bits, sunflower nuts and ranch don’t help but guess what? I’m losing weight. I mean come on, you can’t take that away from me. If I wasn’t having any progress then fine, I’d remove the bacon bits and sunflower nuts but there ain’t no way I’m gonna give up the ranch dressing because I absolutely hate that oil and vinegar douche crap.
The first 3 weeks I was riding my bike I wasn’t losing any weight at all because I was being sabotaged. Yeah yeah yeah, I know, you can’t blame anyone but yourself right? Well, Darrin took me to taco bell when he got one of his checks then the next day we went to Hometown Buffet then we went to China town buffet because friends from San Diego came to visit then he took me to Hometown Buffet again. I was like enough with the buffets and taco bell.
So then my 4th week I lost 5lbs because I stopped eating crap and started taking things more seriously. I wasted 3 weeks of hard work riding my bike, that’s how I feel. The 4th week I lost and now that I’m continuing to take it seriously I’m still losing weight.
This Friday, in 2 days, I’m going to weigh in again and I’m going to be very happy because I know that I’m going to drop at least another 5lbs.
Oh I also forgot to add that I eat a lot of bananas and I eat 1 energy bar the day I ride the bike which is usually halfway through my ride. I typically only ride 3 or 4 days a week and it’s usually only 1 hour per ride. But as I lose more and more weight the bike will be easier to ride because I will be lighter so I will be able to ride longer than just 1 hour per ride. Maybe at least 1 1/2 hour or who knows, maybe when I’m 200lbs I will be riding 2 hours per ride. I will cross that bridge when I get to it.
