Sunday wrap up

image

Last week, we got free breakfast one morning because it was “Health Ahead” day. Yummo! I had a veggie frittata, apples with peanut butter, a small quesadilla, and infused water.  It reminded me that I like water with cucumber and lemon. It’s time to break out the infusion pitcher!

I had a lot of spinach with my lunches last week, with grapes, carrots, raisins and string cheese for snacks.

For exercise, I did spin on Tuesday, muscle attack Wednesday, treadmill on Thursday, and walking on Friday. Yesterday I walked a few miles at a community art fair, and today I rode bikes with Jeff.

Today was mostly on track. For breakfast, I had toast with peanut butter and bananas, with a heap of grapes on the side.  Lunch was chocolate cake and cheese puffs. Dinner is back on track with a BLT salad, made with spinach, avocado, tomato, and a bit of bacon.  For dessert, I have geek yogurt topped with raspberries.

Great week

I’m going on day four or five without chocolate and it’s great!! Now I just need to eliminate other bad decisions from my diet… Like soda, French fries, and other mega-calorie foods.

Breakfast today was a sausage, egg, and cheese English muffin sandwich. 

Fitness so far is a half hour brisk walk.

No pictures of either since my phone battery was too low.

Bicycle cycle

Sorry I haven’t been posting, it’s been busy.  I got a ride in on Sunday, after having spent the majority of Saturday traipsing about the city. Here, have some photos:

Hitting the bike, Sunday.

Don’t mind the clutter, I’m in the middle of refinishing my table and my art studio shares space with my gym/library/living room.

Practice: leaving left overs

Bike, coffee reward

I hit the bike again this morning for half an hour. Now I’m drinking coffee and heading to work. Hoping to keep this momentum.

Lunch, snacks, dinner, and sugar attacks

image

I only had a couple of sugar attacks today.  The first was after lunch, and I pinged Eli. It was funny, in a way. He just said “breathe.” And that helped. He also offered an orange, which I thought was sweet enough 🙂

image

My only concern with giving up sugar (-y snacks) would be picking up salty snacks. I had cheeze it’s for a morning snack. The almonds pictured above are my solution to another late day craving 🙂

image

After work, I was still ravenous, so after guzzling water, I landed on a choice of beef sticks for a snack. Ehhh…

image

The good news is that I got a ten minute walk in. The bad news is that I was still “starving” when I met up with Jeff, so we went out to dinner.

My hangry got the better of me, and we split a cookie before the meal. We were at Davanni’s and I had a solo Hawaiian on thin crust.

First day back at work, so fast so good.

Breakfast was a yummy piece of banana bread that I made it home. There were even chocolate chips in it! I, of course, had some coffee as well. Lunch was a turkey sammich scarfed down between emails and my lunch break is being used for a nice walk . I cannot believe it’s 45 degrees out! 

this weekend I spent a lot of time spring cleaning and I even have a bicycle trainer set up to her living room. I cannot wait to get more active.
