It has been either raining or snowing this week leaving the trails wet and mostly closed. So I went for a leisurely ride on the greenway on my old Gary Fisher Big Sur bike.  I biked along the Neuse River Greenway Trail for a round trip of 13.5 miles in about 1 hour and 25 minutes. I chalk this ride up to the "move frequently at a slow pace" portion of my exercise plan.

Neuse River Greenway Trail
I'm trying to eat better and seeing if reducing my carbs to 100 grams or less will put me in the weight loss sweet spot (I'm only going to try this for two weeks because this is going to be hard for me):
Is the curve for real? I'll find out in 2 weeks!

Dark chocolate! It's good for you!
I did pretty good today with my carbs at 77 grams and not feeling crazy with what I ate.  Breakfast was 1 cup of brocolli with 3 scrambled eggs and pepper jack cheese with chai. Lunch was a new twist on the tuna salad (no mayo) and dinner was baked chicken tenders with hot chili sauce topping and cauliflower rice. The cauliflower was delicious! I added a pat of butter, carrots and mushrooms to the cauliflower and it turned out to be pretty tasty. In order to not go off the deep end and binge, I've been eating a little serving of dark chocolate every day (80-100 calories, 4-10 grams of carbs), it's been working pretty well but this is only day 3 of the experiment.

Lunch: Wild Planet Albacore Tuna (5 oz) with 3 oz of fresh mozzarella, organic mixed greens and 8 artichoke halves plus 1 chopped red bell pepper (600 calories = not hungry for 6 hours!).

Dinner: Cauliflower rice with mushrooms and carrots with 6 oz baked chicken tenders.
