Day 3 on keto. My wife started it this time, so maybe we'll have some success. I slept less but better last night than I have in a while and woke with less aches and pains. So far so good.

Good luck, TwoCubs!

I have to admit that I got back in the habit of overdoing it on the carbs. Even 20 mile bicycle rides leave me feeling spent for at least two days. I consider myself to be active but Iím still at 210. Itís frustrating.

I went low carb before COVID, lost 28 lbs, stopped during covid, gained back about 8lbs.

Trying to get back to it but I'm a stress eater.

Lost what I was typing. It’s for the better...no doubt.

Iím avoiding the scale. I havenít been eating right since July (birthday cake sabotages good eating habits Iím afraid) and my digestion has been ďoffĒ so Iíve been taking a probiotic 2x daily for the past week.

On the flip side weíve been cycling 2x a week - but I need to get a new saddle because...well, you know.

I got one of those generic fit bits from China off Amazon last year. It doesnít work all that well. I think it wants me dead. Actually, some days it just refuses to turn on even after charging.

...and with that I realized that my back tire is toast; the nobs in the center are worn down to nothing. After a dry stretch where I was getting confident on the trails it poured for 3 days. The grass is happy but the trails turned to muck and my rear tire had NO traction whatsoever. It is time, so I ordered a set of Maxxis Ardent 29"x2.2" off Amazon with the balance of my birthday gift cards. They should be coming today sometime. I'm going to hold off on going tubeless but at some point I'm going to do the conversion.

Meanwhile, I finally ordered a chain guide and chain stay protector so I shouldn't be hearing that chain slap around so much. I'm putting a new groupset on my Christmas list along with some Park Tools so that I can install it myself. The LBS would bend me over a barrel and bleed the wallet dry if I had them do it - and STILL have me wait three months.

It was tricky but I got the new tires on. I was worried about them being out of balance because the old rear had a wobble but they popped right into place once I got them up to about 40 psi. The big concern was that the rim was bent but gladly it is still true.

I guess it truly was time for the old tires to go. The new ones should serve me well on the trails - though not on the roads. The treads are meant for the messy stuff that comes with fall through spring; I intend to ride as much as I can even when the weather becomes less hospitable.

3000 burpees a month challenge. Whoís with me?
Just 100 a day.
10- 15 every 1/2 hour, 45 minute, hour. As long as itís hundred a day.

My major concern is keeping my heart rate below the setting that kicks my implant into the ďSuper duper pulseĒ. I donít know what that is, I had doc increase it because it was too low and interrupting sex.

Btw- burping and peeing donít count.

I went out for a short ride on the trails with the new tires this morning. I haven't done the tubeless conversion yet so I'm running the tires at a higher than ideal 40 psi because I don't want another pinch flat. They seem slightly more "grippy" but ideally I want to run them around 30 psi to get a true feeling.

The chain guide got rid of most of the noise but it still slaps around somewhat. I'm due for a new chain as well because this one is starting to stretch. I don't want to grind my gears.



PS: that's a new/old seat that I had on my old bike. The stock saddle was borderline sodomistic. This cushy but still streamlined one is ironically made by a company called "ARS."
