I’ve been hovering between 160-162 for a month. I’ve been eating very well and training hard. All good. But the starting line draws closer with each passing day, and I’m determined to “lighten up”.
So I’ve teamed up with a kick-ass accountability partner whose inner drill sergeant gives me nightmares. We’ve agreed to a 45-day challenge. We were going to make it a 30-day challenge, but we’re endurance athletes. And 45 days is well, longer than 30.
For the next two weeks, I’m stripping the carbs from my plate, specifically fruit smoothies. I think that will get the scale moving again. Here’s my reminder: Rootein.
Plus I am accountable for my triathlon training plan, especially swim practice. So you can look forward to a daily
whinge report from me here.
The numbers from the gym scale on Thursday were heartening: lower body fat, more muscle. That’s positive change!
