Weighed in this morning at 152 pounds.
Over the weekend I did a motorcycle ride up to Paso Robles and back, staying overnight there. But as it turned out, I didn't gain much weight from that trip. Only a meager one pound.
That Saturday morning I had weighed in at 152 pounds. If you recall, I was shooting to weight in at 150 pounds, but never made it. Anyways, riding up there I had a bacon cheeseburger with salad, but no dressing, along with two cups of coffee (black). That night I had three beers, and shared a plate of nachos, potato skins, and chicken strips. And the following day I had a tri-tip sandwich and onion rings. That was all I ate.
When I weighed in the following Monday morning, I was only 153 pounds. I figure the the two full days of motorcycle riding is what helped me burn off those calories. I know, I know, how can riding a motorcycle burn calories? I don't really know the science behind it, but it does. I wrote another article where I talk about this more, "Riding a Motorcycle Can Burn Calories".
So between yesterday and this morning, I lost another pound to make it to 152. So what did I do? Well no exercise. But I did soak in a hot bath for about 30 minutes. Otherwise, I had two whole wheat tortillas (plain) in the morning. Two tall glasses of green tea (unsweetened), 5oz of beef jerky, and a regular bagel (plain) in the evening. That works out to about 1,000 calories.
But the main thing is that I ate all day long, but ate a little at a time to keep my body metabolizing all day long.
