The last two weeks of training didn't go to plan. First, I nixed my barbell workouts to let my body recover from tough training rides. Then I made some adjustments to help get me back on track, but ended up skipping training rides to make room for my barbell workouts.
The point of focusing on the barbell workouts was to maintain weight loss as my priority.
But Sunday's weigh-in was a horror: 190.4 lbs, up from 186.0 last week. I ate a batch of cookies last week, but that hardly accounts for a four-pound gain. So I'm just trying to get back on track this week: do my scheduled barbell workouts and training rides, hydrate, and don't eat anything crazy.
I'm hoping I'll have good news in a few days. We shall see.
