Tip of the Quill: A Journal
I see a trend emerging here.

So I’m following the Abs Diet, ah, diet – three small-to-medium meals with three snacks in-between, and this seems to be working fairly well. I’ve also been doing a crazy amount of cardio – I put in 40 miles on the bike today, one ten-mile stint this morning before breakfast, another ten-miler after I came home from the day’s main work, and then another twenty during and after The West Wing. I think I’m also dropping weight, but I’m not sure if the reported losses on the scale in the morning are really trustworthy, or if they’re just natural physical variations from day-to-day. I weighed myself this morning and I’d definitely dropped since Monday, but I’m expecting to try that again tomorrow and not see any variation, or even a gain.
That said, if you figure biking 10 miles per hour burns 6-7 calories per minute, which is about what I was doing (and yes, I spent about 4 hours today on the bike), that means that I burned between 1440 and and 1680 calories, which translates into a little less than half a pound (3500 calories). Let’s see if I can keep this up, though.
