That weekend zipped by, did it not? My legs were a little tired after all that riding I did, but I decided to go and see what would happen with a wee bit of lifting. It was nice enough to ride the bike to the gym today as well.

I was so efficient this morning with super sets and finished that workout in 30 minutes. Then it was breakfast time!
The 1-minute applesauce muffin done in the waffle iron. Topped with a warmed mashed nanna and coconut butter. This kept me full until lunchtime, which was really nice. BTW – I nurse about 10 ounces of either cow’s milk or almond milk over the course of the morning in coffee. That gives me about 12-14 ounces of coffee.
Helen commented on the long bike ride post about how did I manage to stop at 1 cupcake. I guess I didn’t say that those 2 cupcakes pictured were both mine. They were and I ate both. I didn’t really need both, but I couldn’t decide on the flavor. Normally this shop has 2 bite cupcakes and I will get one of those with the medium cupcake. They were out of the little ones, so I just got the regulars and figured I would eat what I wanted (which turned out to be all of both). I definitely give myself a lot more leeway on long ride days.
Yesterday, I got serious carb cravings. That oftentimes happens to me the day after long rides where I become a bottomless pit. I made some macaroons last night and proceeded to eat 5 of them.
Phew. Today I am really trying to swing that pendulum back. I said no macaroons today, but I can have one tomorrow if I want it. Gotta bargain with myself sometimes to stay on track.
Tuna with light mayo and lemon pepper. I whole can of tuna, I might add. Need that protein (24 grams)!
I didn’t actually eat the coconut biscuit. I put in on there for the picture, but didn’t end up wanting it. Trying to listen to my body and how much food it wanted.
Almond milk latte for a snack, although it was pretty warm outside – in the 70s! 😯
The almond milk foams like a sonofagun, too.
I was really productive with work and finished up in good time. Love those days! I took a walk to the hardware store to get some leaf bags to clean up our yard, but they were sold out. Guess everyone had the same idea. I did get the rose bushes pruned – all 4 seem to have survived this tough winter, yay!
My basil sprouts are doing well:
Then it was time for grillin’! Such a sight for sore eyes.
I had some of that with laughing cow on it (and hot sauce). Tasty.
We are working on the half bath tonight. The hardware came in for the pocket door, so we can get moving on that last wall. Thank you! I will post some pics in a day or so. We are hoping to get done relatively soon as the weather is biking weather and not renovation weather
I got stocked up with this:
So tonight’s snack? The pumpkin/cream/walnut combo:
Question: Have you grilled yet this year?
