Century this morning; Here is discipline.

Just a quick blog this morning, as I’m rolling out super early for what I hope will be a fast and exciting century ride.

I expect to burn quite a few calories on today’s ride, and the temptation for a splurge meal this evening will be strong. I may go ahead and have my optional weekly splurge meal tonight, but I’m strongly (90%) leaning towards sticking with my usual cutting diet. I’m nearly done with this cut–perhaps just one more week–and so I’ll probably just wait and have a little popcorn on Sunday afternoon instead of a full-blown splurge.

Normally when I start a cut I make sure there are no serious temptations left in the house. This time, though, I had a couple of beers left in the fridge. These guys have been taunting me for five weeks:

These two beauties have greeted me every time I open the fridge during this entire cut.

Pretending those brews don’t exist has not been terribly difficult during the work week, but on weekend afternoons? Especially on days when I’ve done a long, hard ride? Definitely an 8 or a 9 on the Self Discipline scale. I’m sure after today’s long ride I’ll be tempted, but they’re just going to have to sit in there another week or two.

Have a great Saturday!
