Since I can’t call it Bagel Day, I guess it is Biking Day! It was cool and foggy this morning, like living in the Pacific NW. I grabbed a quick protein hit and we biked for breakfast. By the time we got to town, the sun was out and burned off the fog.
I had brought along a 1 minute muffin with some cream cheese and jam. Added a cup of French Roast.
It was a nice breakfast chatting about where we are going to ride this weekend. I also enjoyed this lovely flower at the table.
I’ve never had a lot of luck growing hydrangeas. Not sure why.
After a nice ride home, I settled in to work until lunch time. I wanted peanut butter, but couldn’t think of what to have, then I decided on peanut flour made into a dip for my pear. The peanut flour has 15 grams of protein in it, which is awesome! I mixed it with a little honey, some cinnamon and a tiny pinch of salt.
It took a while to eat this lunch because it was in so many pieces 😀
This guy was eating lunch while I was.
A little white sulfur butterfly. There are tons of them around here. Sometimes you see yellow ones, but the whites are very common.
Are you tired of dried pineapple yet? Apparently I am not:
I try to limit myself to 1 piece as it is 70 calories for 1 and pretty sweet. This seems to be enough to satisfy my needs for sweet right now.
I found myself wanting to nibble this afternoon and I had a few pistachios, but then I just had a couple mints to stop that. I was getting mildly hungry, but not over the edge hungry and figured I could wait another hour for dinner. Sometimes I have to really remind myself that it is okay to be a little hungry before dinner 😳
Speaking of dinner, I got in some superfoods. Roasted sweet potato slices and my broccoli!
I don’t know if pork is a superfood, but it was tasty. I just ate it crumbled up instead of a burger because it would cook faster (well, I was hungry).
I am doing quite well on my challenge to date and halfway through! I really feel like I am in a zone and getting through the weekend being on point really helped out with that. This challenge is doing exactly what I had hoped for my attitude. I’ll ride the wave as long as I can!
Riding the wave:
(I figured I needed more pictures of me not sweating or wearing a bike helmet on here LOL)
