I’ve been on the road now for nine days, more or less (I was back home for the weekend). Here are some interesting statistics about my trip:
- Number of days during which I have stuck to my eating plan on this trip: 0
- Number of times I have exercised during this trip: 3
- Number of times I have weighed myself since beginning this trip: 0
- Number of belt notches I have had to let out since beginning this trip: 1
So here’s a story problem:
“If a Fat Cyclist goes on a two-week-long business trip where he eats every meal at a restaurant, doesn’t have time (nor facilities) to exercise, spends several hours of each day snacking to keep himself awake while driving (a sedentary position), and occasionally goes on evening eating binges to drive away the boredom of being alone in yet another hotel room, and if, furthermore, that Fat Cyclist weighed 162 pounds before leaving on that trip, what will the Fat Cyclist weigh at the end of this trip (i.e., this Friday)?”
The three closest-to-correct answers get a cool Fat Cyclist-labeled item currently under development (value: $15), the item being something which I have not announced yet but am definitely excited about.
In case of ties, earlier entries win.
PS: I am going to be having very little time to post during the remainder of this week and next week. So if you’ve ever thought to yourself, “I have a story/observation/witty piece of fake news that should go in Fat Cyclist,” now’s your chance. E-mail me your story. If I think it feels like something I would write, I’ll post it. If I don’t post it, however, just remember: it’s not you. It’s me.
