A combination of 'no S diet' and increase in working out and mountain biking did the trick this last week: down a total of 6 pounds for the first 14 days on the DietBet. Need to shed another 3 lbs over the next two weeks to get my money back. Definitely do-able unless I fall into a big pile of donuts or a bacon and cheeseburger trap. :-)
Really enjoying the mountain biking as a sub for running. Still hopeful that in time I will be able to resume running, as plantar issues seem to be receding every so slowly.
Drove by a guy yesterday who had crashed into a metal retaining barrier on the trail, seemed to have badly hurt his shoulder. Indirectly this was caused by a vandal who had knocked down a trail sign (warning of sharp S curve and steep downhill). What a shame. Even so the bikers need to take it easy on this mixed-use trail. There is no need for excessive speeding and certainly not around blind corners.
This week my goal is to post 5 consecutive Green days on 'No S', could not get beyond 2 last week.
