Goals for this week

My goal for this week is to blog every day no matter how busy I am!! I have to get to doing it everyday as it really does help to keep me on track.

Another goal this week is to drink at least 8 cups of water a day. Either plain water or iced herbal tea.

Today I went out on a 45 minute walk this morning thinking it would be cooler but really it was crazy hot and the only relief I felt was in the shade in the woods. I decided against going on a bike ride this after noon as it was just too much heat.
Some nice messages from Fitbit today :)

Moving right along

I had an issue today with someone in one of my groups. They were upset that I don't list which of my foods are Canadian and that I should put that I'm in Canada in all my posts.
Well I'm sorry but I already spend a lot of time online and I'm sorry but we don't have some of the variety of products here and we choose the best that we can.
I ended up blocking her as I just don't need the negativity in my life and we had words before.
I have no problem with anyone asking me questions and I do my best to answer but please respect my choices.

Now onto my great day!

This morning Ralph and I went shopping then came home and rode our bikes to and from another mall. All in all I rode for 45 minutes.

Bought some amazing herbal teas from Davids Tea to make my iced teas which I've been loving lately. Today I bought pineapple mimosa, sangria and raspberry mojito.

Came home and started the bbq for a fantastic dinner.

Breakfast: 1 egg, 2 egg whites, Piller's smoked breakfast ham, cherry tomatoes, olive oil, mixed berries, slice of Ezekiel bread Simply Filling
