Shaking things up a bit

I know I'm a bad blogger!

I won't say I'll post every day but I will post as often as I can. There are several times coming up this month which will make it difficult to blog but I'll check in as often as possible.

This week I decided to step up my workouts. So I joined Daily Burn and have signed up to do the true beginner workouts. I did a mobility one yesterday and today I did a core workout.

I also attended a meeting today and biked there and back for a total of 62 minutes of biking. Whew I should sleep well tonight.

I'm still getting my water in and for me it makes such a difference in the way I physically feel.

Breakfast: Oatmeal cooked with skim milk and water and topped with thawed mixed berries and a tbsp of ff cream Simply Filling

Lunch: extra lean ham, raw veggies, tortillas made from a corn tortilla which is just 50 calories and .5 of a gram of fat so I count as SF, light yogurt, clementine and salsa Simply Filling

Dinner: extra lean hamburger no bun, lettuce, tomato, onion, steak sauce, ff cheese slice, baked home made fries with olive oil Simply Filling

Other: ff cream for coffee and a glass of red wine Simply Filling + 5sp

It was one of those days!

Today was just one of those day.

Went on a walk this morning and saw a cute baby bunny! Came home and realized my fitbit was still on sleep mode and hadn't tracked my walk. Ugh! May seem silly but I find my fitbit very motivating so when it's not working mama is not a happy camper
Click on picture to see bunny :)

I've felt tired all day and no idea why?? Today was cloudy and a lot cooler so maybe that was it?

Went to a meeting tonight where they served dinner. Did the best I could with my choices.

Hope I'm back in sync tomorrow. Jen and Lucas are taking me out to lunch so that will be fun.

1. blog daily - almost didn't but didn't want to start skipping a day - Check!

Loving the bike this year

The more I've been riding my bicycle the more I love it!! It's so easy just to hop on and go, especially when we don't have a car. I can remember when I first starting riding and I couldn't go up the easiest of hills and now nothing stops me!!

Whenever you try new things it does take a while to get used to them. Just don't give up.

I'm happy to say after eating at the Chinese buffet yesterday my weight was the same today as it was yesterday and I call that a win!!

Ralph and I went on a 45 minute bike ride this afternoon even though it was really hot in the sun today. While we were out we stopped at McDonald's and I already knew what my choice was going to be. An iced coffee with no base or cream and I took my own ff cream and sweetener so it was a 0 count drink :) Quite refreshing.

This weeks challenges:
1. blog every day - check
2. drink at least 8 cups of water every day - 10 cups so far

Breakfast: Egg white omelet, berries and light yogurt and 2 berry oatmeal muffins Simply Filling click on link to recipe

Lunch: sauteed kale, onion, mushrooms, peppers, cherry tomatoes in olive oil with leftover pork tenderloin and a banana Simply Filling

Dinner: salad with light dressing 2sp, light parmesan cheese 1sp, pillers smoked breakfast ham, cherries and sf jello Simply Filling + 3sp
