Heck no! After I blogged about my horrible eating I went for a 10 mile, easy bike ride and burned up a whole 300 calories! To celebrate I ordered pizza (the world’s most perfect food) for dinner and ate 3 slices. When I got done with that I needed to go get some milk at 7 – 11 and found myself overwhelmed with a need for a Snapple Ice Tea with Lemon – yum! And yes, Ms. Firefly, I was a little short on the fruits and vegetables yesterday although I did have vegetarian pizza with peppers, onions, mushrooms, olives and sun dried tomatoes so all was not lost.
Today I’m all better. Today I am going to eat Ruby Red Grapefruit and weeds (salad and no, I don’t use fatty Ranch dressing on it) and drink green tea. I’ll probably eat some whole wheat bread, too. I actually feel like eating well. I think I out foxed my body by just completely saturating my sugar receptors. HA!
Tomorrow I am going on a killer bike ride with my biker friends. I’m guessing we will do 40 or 50 miles because we have a metric century to prepare for. They have been riding big hills twice a week while I trained for the marathon so this should be interesting. I haven’t been on a long, hard ride since ….. gulp….. May 6 when I ran 8 miles and rode 35 up in Napa. As I recall I felt like I was on the brink of an injury every time I rode my bike so I stopped riding to focus on marathon training (how do you IronMan people do this??). It seems like forever ago. Anyhow, this ride will be really interesting and will certainly reverse the ill effects of yesterdays sugar binge. Stay tuned.
