I joined Daily Mile about a year ago. I just logged in to my account to add my spin mileage from today, and I saw this:
3,117 total miles / 1485 in 2012
43 pounds burned.
What in the…. 43 pounds burned??
For-for-forty three!!? I heard an explosion. It was in my head! Boom! Boom!
Dear Daily Mile,
I just want to clarify some things. If had only eaten my daily calories that it took to keep me at my current weight each day, I would be 43 pounds lighter JUST from triathlon training??
I have chosen to shove 43 pounds (150,500 calories = 300 margaritas = 150 thin crust pizzas = 376 McDonald’s cheeseburgers) into my MOUTH?!?
If I could tear out my hair or throw my computer monitor through the window I would. I hate math. But at times like this… I think I know why I never learned to count.
Daily Mile, I don’t like your fuzzy math. It. Just. Can’t. Be. True. Can it?
