Happy Saturday! Another great day today! Long bike ride on tap for the day. Fueled up with some protein waffles topped with a mix of ricotta cheese, pumpkin, spice, and 1 tsp of honey (warmed in microwave). Sprinkled with craisins.
Along side some cafe au lait and this was a yummy breakfast!
Set out for Lake George once it warmed up a bit. Do you ever get those times where you are just supremely happy? I was having one of those moments while biking. The sun was warm, I was feeling great, enjoying the scenery and just thinking about how happy I was 😀
The ducks are back. These 2 better get busy and make some ducklings!
Snack time at 9 miles in because my thighs were burning:
About 10 miles in or so, when we got into the Adirondacks, we hit some icy snowpack on the path 😯
We sort of rode over the patches while straddling the bikes and using our feet (if that makes any sense). Did fine, except on one spot I took a spill when my bike slipped out from under me. I banged my elbow, but at least I didn’t rip my pants. Why I worried more about that is beyond me. I should have had John take a picture…
Arrival at the Lake!
(John shaved off his beard for the first day of spring.)
Still a little bit of ice on the lake.
A lot of businesses are still closed for the season, but the Bank Cafe is open. This place is fun. It’s tiny, but cozy.
We sat by the safe:
I shared a bowl of lobster bisque with John. It came with the most giant spoon ever!
The bisque was sooo good.
We each ended up getting grilled cheese, too.
Good old American Cheese LOL. Old school and tasty.
We wandered around town for a while. Lots of people out and cleaning up stuff. You can feel the earth stretching and waking up from a winter nap. Check out this pier – would you want to walk on it?
Then we biked home, being careful on the snowy patches, so no mishaps. The first part leaving Lake George is the killer. It’s a 2-mile hill up. Phew! Quads burning…. burning! You know what is open now – had to stop and get our frozen yogurt!
This was rum cheesecake flavor with coconut. ~ 150 calories (plus some coconut). Gotta love it.
Bike ride done!
- 31 miles
- 3 hours
- Average speed: 11.2 mph
- Top speed: 26.2 mph (hills!)
Bike legs come back fast after a winter off. I am excited to plan a 100 mile ride this summer.
Today is National Meat-Out day, so we made an effort to eat all veg today. Dinner tonight was Indian inspired. Potato sauteed with coconut oil, turmeric, garam masala, a red chili and topped with an egg. Slapped a cover on to steam the egg, and then I had to add a little cheese.
Unpictured clementines were eaten as well.
Too bad this weather is gone tomorrow. It has just been so enjoyable! I am all set for an evening in with some chocolate and tea.
Question: Did you Meat Out today?
