Yesterday I took stock.
One week closer to “Excellent” fitness and, no change in weight.
Funny that. The harder I workout, the heavier I become. My diet and intake has not changed. It may be muscle but I think it is more age. Your metabolism slows down with the years. You don’t need as much fuel. So, this week is about reducing the food volume. No seconds at the table. More water. More electrolytes during the indoor workouts. And, a recovery drink afterward.
I was pleased with the workouts. Hard but doable. I even got a 70 km road ride in on Friday. It was sunny, warm and dry. It gave me a chance to try out the new Fi’zi:k shoes. Oh, so sweet.
I began using Suunto’s Movescount website. I use it, particularly in the winter months to track my workouts. I like the graphical representation and the ability to make notes. It’s clever how it works. The work outs automatically (well, with a press of a button) upload from the watch to the website making it easy to record the “moves” as Suunto like to call them.
This week will get me a week closer to “Excellent” and two pounds lighter.
