Reflecting on the challenges of this cut; I hate riding slow.

Knowing my cut ends on Sunday is making this final week exceptionally easy to get through. At this point in the cut I’ve been strict for so long that, dietary speaking, I’m practically on autopilot anyway. I remember around midway through the cut I was dealing with fairly regular cravings that were so intense I felt like I was going insane. I refused to give in to the cravings, and once I got through that rough period it was pretty much smooth sailing the rest of the way. It was almost like my mind finally accepted that there was no way I was going to give in, and settled in for the duration. The momentum I built early on was invaluable in getting through those mid-cut cravings. If I’d given in once I would have done it again, and I guarantee that my cut would not be ending this weekend.

Today’s a cardio day, and I have not decided what I’m going to do yet. Lisa’s off from work all this week, so we might go for a bike ride before I have to get to work. The weather is incredible, so going outside is looking like an attractive option compared to sitting in the gym on a recumbent bike. Lisa has not done much riding lately, and I have to admit that her excruciatingly slow pace is a little frustrating for me. When we ride together I find myself constantly racing ahead, then doubling back. Maybe I should just go for an easy ride with her this morning and then do an afternoon HIIT workout. I always say that, though, but then I wind up riding fast anyway. I guess I just find leisurely riding really boring. I should have been a sled dog.
