I have put some miles in this week. First with a run on Monday, and then today on the bike!
I joined in with the Mooresville Area Cycling group for the Tuesday night ride. We covered 20 miles in about an hour and a half. This is a great group of friendly riders and I’m hoping to make Tuesday rides a thing. And even hoping to graduate out of the beginner group and up to the B group sometime this spring!
The weather was beautiful for a long ride today. A bit breezy but I could overlook that because the sun was shining and the temperature was just right. I love being on the bike with the wind in my face. It sounds cheesy but it makes me feel free. And as we discussed a few days ago, I love the feeling of being free (but only in small doses).
Today was busy. I feel like right now, at 9:30pm, I can finally release the big sigh I have been holding in all day. We managed to spend two hours playing at the library, a quick trip to Birkdale to pick out our free 8×10 photo from a shoot we did with the girls a few weeks ago, and nearly two solid hours on my bike. All in one day. That’s a big day when you are toting around a toddler and infant with you!
Ok, meals today…leaning further in:
Breakfast: protein pancake (2 eggs, 1 banana, 1 Tbsp coconut flour, 1 TBSP flax, vanilla, cinnamon) topped with almond butter, coconut cream and raspberries.
Lunch: giant chopped salad with rotisserie chicken and avocado
Dinner: chicken leg and wing with sweet potatoes, carrots and zucchini
Snack: apples topped with almond butter mixed with coconut oil, coconut flakes and chia seeds. My absolute favorite snack in the world and perfect for after my ride tonight.
There were also one or two small squares of dark chocolate worked in throughout the day.
Happy What I Ate Wednesday!
