That Was Easy

Morning weigh-in (Tuesday): 176.5#, 13% BF
Morning weigh-in (Wednesday): 180.5#, 13.5% BF
Skip a lunch, go for a ride, and I was almost halfway to my goal! Too bad it was mostly suppression weight, but it is good to see the numbers drop even if they do bounce back. Damn you, Two-Brew Tuesday!
I got in a short towpath ride on the Monday night: maybe 13.5 miles, out and back to the Bethlehem Boat Club in just over an hour. Kind of easy pace, high cadence, it felt really good except for cold feet. Tonight should be a longer version of the same.
I felt pretty good on the ride, but I'm not sure how things will work tonight: last night and today I've had a lot of wheezing and postnasal drip problems. (I just stopped taking the decongestant/expectorants I was using, though not the antihistamine, and withdrawal was like I'd had 3 cups of coffee before I went to bed, plus some late-night nose & chest issues.) I'm hoping things work out.
