I’m definitely not going to blog about this every single day. Nor am I going to track calories for every single meal. If I had a handy calorie tracker, I might. Anyway, today’s food was much in line with yesterdays. The surgar cravings definitely kicked it, but I’ve been allowing myself an orange after each workout. This is definitely a higher calorie approach than the last time I did this. Still, with today’s bike ride, I nearly passed out. I was definitely at the edge of my envelope. I also got a chance to weigh in today, I’m definitely heavier than I have been in a long time.
