March 2, 2015. Final week of 2015 cut, mid-6% BF range. Vascularity is really popping now. New progress photo; Final week of cut–the plan.

With my 2015 cut almost behind me, I can almost taste the movie theater popcorn I’ll be enjoying while on my vacation! I won’t be going completely insane while I’m on holiday, but I will definitely enjoy a few treats. My mom and her friend are coming from Texas to stay with us, and there’s no doubt that in addition to popcorn I’ll be digging in to some of my mom’s amazing cooking. We’ll probably… [Read more]

Flying through a chicane on an absolutely stunning Central Florida day. I love riding in Lake County! My cycling month in review: February 2015

A new month is upon us and, as I always do at the beginning of a new month, this morning I’m going to review some of my cycling highlights, personal records and totals from the previous month. My 2015 cut is nearing its end and, despite eating under maintenance for more than eight weeks now and dropping more than 20 pounds (so far), my power on the bike seems to be fine. In fact, I… [Read more]

EatSmart Precision Digital Bathroom Scale 2015 cut progress report: week #8

Week #8 of my 2015 cut is complete, and it’s time for my weekly progress report. PLEASE NOTE: A few words about my methodologies and body fat percentage My body fat, tape measurements and scale weight are all performed while fasted (first thing in the morning before eating or drinking). All measurements are taken “cold” (no pump), and flexed. A 7-point or 9-point body fat caliper pinch test is the most accurate “at-home” method of… [Read more]

The 270 kilometer / 167 mile Cross-Florida route. 2015 Cross-Florida training rides begin today.

Some of you may recall that last April I did the 33rd annual Cross-Florida (XFL) ride. At 270 kilometers (167 miles), it was truly an epic day in the saddle (the ride can be split over two day, if desired, but I did it as a single ride). You can check out my 2014 XFL ride reports here: Part I and Part II.   The ride itself was amazing and quite memorable, but I also… [Read more]

My trusty Keurig has been working pretty much non-stop this morning. I’ve been up since 2:25 AM. COFFEE!

Up until last night I’d not had any real difficulties getting a good night of sleep so far on this cut. I usually wake up a couple times per night to use the bathroom, but almost always fall right back asleep. This morning, though, I woke up shortly before 2:30 AM to urinate and just could not fall back asleep! I remained in bed for about 45 minutes, tossing and turning. At about 3:15 AM… [Read more]

The new Sticky Pods, Large (10" x 5" x 1") and Small (6" x 4.75" x 1"). Sticky Pod update: improved design!

Some of you may recall the article I wrote last June, “What I carry on road rides“. When I published that blog I was storing most of my emergency repair gear in an under-the-saddle bag (the excellent ). About a month after I wrote that article, I ditched the saddle bag in favor of another product called the , which is designed to be carried in a jersey pocket. Shortly after making that change, I… [Read more]

what's the plan When will I end the cut?

My scale weight has not moved so far this week. This is not a real concern, as fat loss is rarely linear. In fact, there have already been a couple weeks on this cut during which I lost no weight right up until a day or so before my weekly Sunday progress report. So while I’m not about to cry “Plateau!” just yet, I do need to consider that possibility. With only about a week… [Read more]
