The end of the week and just about the end of the month. I have a fun weekend ahead of me, so I am really looking forward to that!
Breakfast today – oats cooked with some peanut flour and egg whites and topped with coconut butter. I decided just to photograph the bowl because what was in the bowl didn’t look appealing (although I liked it).
Bowl by local potter. I have to say that I am finding oats don’t really last me as long as I would like. Even with protein added. I was really hungry after a couple hours and had some nuts with dried pineapple.
I was kind of hoping to make it to lunch without the morning snack because of going out to dinner at night, but I was way too hungry.
Maybe it was a hungry kind of day because I was stomach growling again an hour and a half later for lunch!
Chicken (surprise, surprise) cooked with a bit of tomato basil sauce, which came out of a jar. Quite good, too.
Anyway – here were my goals for March and how I did:
1. Finish the 28-Day Shapeover workouts. Finished and assessed.
2. Follow my 90/10 rule for eating. Doing really, really well with this. I am on a roll!
4. Start a new lifting program. Yes. I started the Female Body Breakthrough, which I am loving!
5. Go bowling. Yes! Did this once.
I actually did well on my goals this month! And you know what? I feel great! I am loving the new workout program and how I am eating. John said to me last night that I was looking especially healthy – and who doesn’t love a compliment? 😀 The other bonus this month was how much outdoor biking we got in. I put just over 100 miles on the bike for the month.
Speaking of biking, I had to get out and ride today. The weather is looking pretty crappy for Saturday and Sunday I will be busy at the spa (!!!), so today it was. The temp was 42 degrees, but sunny. I bundled up with a technical turtleneck, 2 jackets, double gloves and sweats over biking shorts. I was the Michelin woman! It was really cold LOL! It was only annoying when the wind picked up, but when it was calm, the sun felt good.
See my red face from the wind?
I got in a good 10 mile ride today, plus extra calorie burn having to wipe my nose so much. I was still pretty chilled when I got back inside and John made up some warmth for me.
Wake up kitty!
Okay, this is my attempt at Fashion Friday. I am not as good as putting outfits together like Shelley is (or posing, apparently). John and I are going out to a nice dinner tonight and then to a guitar concert at Skidmore College. We have a Groupon for dinner and decided to make it a nice dinner and music evening. So, I got dressed up a wee bit.
Top and slacks are from consignment for an outfit costing less than $20! The slacks are Docker Curvy. The pants are flared at the bottom – which I didn’t get in the shot. Good thing I am not a paid photographer.
Anyway, that’s a nice change from always posting me in bike gear.
Posting early as we are off for a fun evening. Hopefully we will love the food and get some good pictures. Sunday my mother and I are taking my sister to the spa as a birthday present. My weekend is going to be awesome! Hope you have a good one, too!
