Gone Fishin'

HEY!

I'm not actively blogging here anymore. But if you got here because you were searching for something about bikes, you might want to check out my latest project, Vermont Goldsprints. In summer of 2014, I bought a used goldsprints racing setup and have made it a mission to get more bikes in more people's faces by putting on fun races in unexpected places. Come join me!

Body Work II: Weeks 1-2 Journal and Summary


It's always tough coming off the achievement of a big goal. As my first Body Work series finished, I had more than met my goal weight and I was able to ride the Fatcyclist.com 100 Miles of Nowhere to cap it all off. The two weeks that have followed that have not seen me ride my bike other than to and from work, and there have been a few, uh, lapses, in the food program. Nevertheless, I'm still here, still weighing in and writing down my food intake, and looking to turn around my "no riding except for commuting" turned no that the lazy (and finally sunny!) days of summer are upon us. All the details and numbers after the break.


Two-Week Summary:
