June cycling/diet update

Cycling is going really well since the weather is nice. I rode 398 miles (just shy of my target 400-500 per month this summer) in June and I did quite a bit of hill climbing work, with over 20,000 feet climbed for the month (the month previous was about half that).

Diet-wise, I sort of hit a wall, recording the same weight at the previous two or three months. I exercised my ass off in June but I also ate like a horse so I’m spending the first week of July really watching what I eat and cutting out a few more things that are probably keeping my weight steady.


  • I’ve certainly noticed that no matter how much I cycle, I’ve had more of an impact on my weight by my changes in diet and including other exercise. My lower body benefits from cycling, but nothing above the waist.

  • It’s all about cutting down on carbs. I don’t do a “low-carb” diet, but cutting out those extra rolls, pizza crusts, etc., make a huge difference. When I can force myself to do it, I cut weight, wen I can’t I stay the same or gain.
