It is just starting to warm up and although it can get pretty cold in March this is usually an indicator here that winter is mostly over. That means that I made it through the holiday season with minimal weight gain. Even better, since I used the trainer during winter it seems that I've actually gained cycling strength over the winter season. This is a big deal for me. I think the big lesson here is clear: keep the calorie intake as low as possible over the winter season (there is a natural growth anyway, but if you can keep some self-control the payoff is tremendous) and exercise as much as possible - and you will go into the warm season way ahead of the game. Now that it is warming up I've noticed from my FitDay logs that I'm having a much easier time keeping under the calorie bar than I was the past few months.
