Diet Log - September 1, 2008

Weighed in this morning at 185 pounds.

I finished the month of August with a net loss of 3 pounds. In a way, I'm still losing weight on this diet regimen, but on the other hand, I missed my goal of losing 7 pounds for the month.

What's to blame is that I really backed off from exercising. I need to get back into doing walks, I'm just getting lazy about it.

Interestingly, I lost four pounds just yesterday alone. I can't figure out how I did it. I talked about this specifically on my motorcycle philosophy blog in an article this morning entitled, "Lose Weight Riding Motorcycles".

I noted that riding motorcycles burns calories, but I doubt it burns all that much. However, after riding all day long certainly will tire you out, but I think it's more of a mental exhaustion. Riding a motorcycle requires you to pay much more attention than driving a car.

I think what really happened is that on Saturday (the day before the ride), I had loaded up on a lot of fluids, mostly diet sodas, V8, and iced teas. So that when I woke up Sunday morning, I was 189 pounds. Being outside in the sun all that afternoon sucked all the moisture out of me. By the time I weighed in this morning, I was back to 185.

Though tomorrow morning, I could very well weigh in heavier because today the wife and I went out for lunch at a seafood buffet, and I had to get the most bang for my buck by loading up all the sushi I could find.
