It is spring! Here is some evidence:
Aren’t they beautiful? These are from my parents’ lilac bush.
They make the house smell so nice.
The roads were wet this morning, but the sun came out. I didn’t trust it to last, though. I headed out to the gym for a nice lifting session:
|Low Back Extension||3 sets of 15 at 80#||Low back|
|Dumbbell Pull Over||3 set of 10 with 20# DB||Back|
|Biceps Curls||3 sets of 10 with 30# bar||Biceps|
|Pushups||3 sets of 10||Chest|
|Calf Raise||3 sets of 12 at 110#||Calves|
|Nosebreakers||3 sets of 10 with 25# bar||Triceps|
|Pliet Squat||3 sets of 10 with 35# DB||Lower Body|
|Reverse Crunch||3 sets of 15||Core|
|Bent Lateral Raise||3 sets of 10 with 10# DBs (20# total)||Shoulders|
While I was there (and feeling chubby, I might add), a woman said to me “Lori, you look like have you lost weight” I was uncomfortable with that for some reason. I think because of my own feeling at that point. I told her I didn’t think so, but maybe it was all the biking. Then I thanked her for the compliment, which is what I should have just done in the first place.
Of course, I really do *not* know what I weigh since I have not stepped on a scale since March 31st. I have days where I feel thinner and days where I feel heavier. I think once May is up, I am going to weigh myself again. I think the nebulousness of just going by clothing isn’t helping my psyche. I am starting to second guess myself.
Headed on home hungry. I made up a 1 minute muffin/waffle, topped with some peanut flour and homemade strawberry jam.
I made the PB flour a little more liquidy so it would be a bit runny. Raise your hand if you think I wolfed this down. Come on – I want to see all of them up!
Today turned out to be a really nice day. We were expecting rain all week and the sun decided to come out and play all day!
I took advantage of that and took a break from work to mow the lawn. It felt so good to get outside!
Lunch time salad today:
I had a packet of this dressing.
This packet will last me for 3 salads, even though it is a ‘single’ serving packet.
John made up some lattes today, which I enjoyed with a dark chocolate mint cup. The last one.
Then I was a little hungry, so I had a ramekin of cereal.
I stopped at this, though, which is a victory for me.
When dinner time rolled around, I fell back on a standard.
Using my perfect omelet technique *patent pending*
We watched some of the Tour of California during dinner, which got us both hankering for a bike ride! We checked the radar and saw the all clear for at least a couple hours, so we hit the trails for some of this:
This is tiramisu cheesecake yogurt. Yes indeed – it was tasty! It felt wonderful to be outside again! Too bad tomorrow is back to rain.
Question: Do you have a fall back meal you rely on?
