I confess to being quite proud of that post, and the fact that I was able to go on for seemingly ever about a mundane topic, without including a single legitimate fact.
That post, I am sad to say, garnered a whopping 26 comments. And since I regard my comments as a sort of metaphorical tip jar, I couldn’t help but wonder what the problem is.
These are my theories:
- It was so long that by the time people finished reading it, they did not have time to comment
- It was so long that people didn’t have time to finish reading it
- It was so weird that people didn’t have any idea of what to say after reading it
- It was so weird that people didn’t finish reading it
- It just wasn’t that funny to a lot of people
Seriously, I want to know: what did you think of yesterday’s post? Good? Bad? Stupid? The fact is, I write this blog because I want it to be read (I’m not one of those writers who is compelled to write and doesn’t care whether he ever finds an audience). If you didn’t like something, I want to know why.
Six years into this blog and I’m still learning. So that’s good.
Today, I weigh 163 pounds (that’s rounding up, not down, by the way). Which means I’m five pounds away from the 158 pounds I need to be at by June 3 in order to keep my Superfly 100. At this point, I have confidence I can do it.
How am I doing it? Well, in two words: egg whites.
In slightly more than two words: around 20 egg whites per day. That’s a lot of protein.
And I’m basically off carbs except for right before and during long rides.
Weird, but it’s working. Good thing I like egg whites.
I haven’t talked much about Team Fatty and our plans for this year’s inaugural Davis LiveStrong Challenge.
That’s about to change.
If I were you, I’d join Team Fatty and make plans to be in Davis, if possible. And if not possible, you’ll still be glad you joined, because you will have been a part of the team that is going to raise a ton of money in the fight against cancer, not to mention kick every other team’s butt (sorry, other teams!).
