Given my somewhat disappointing performance at the Bloomer Park XC race, I have decided that I need to make myself more accountable at least to myself for what goes into my body in order to improve my performance. If I am going to seriously complete in Mountain Bike Racing, I have to lose weight. It is impossible for me to be competitive, even in the Clydesdale class, at my current weight of around 240 pounds. It is not too embarrassing to talk about this since no one reads my blog anyway, but I intend to write a daily update that will include what I ate and any workout I did. If I make it to a scale, I will also include my weight.
