Last day of April. Unbelievable! Time just goes by so fast. I woke up feeling a little tired this morning. I think all my cleaning yesterday wore me out 😀
I made up breakfast of oats with egg whites cooked in layered with blueberry sauce.
Hot! I burned my tongue. I hate that.
I worked as much as I could in the morning. Then I was supposed to meet my literacy learner for the new meeting time of 11 am. We meet for 2 hours and that would have gotten me home close to 1:30 and I knew I would be way too hungry, so I had a protein shake before leaving. My usual workout shake of pumpkin, almond milk and protein powder.
(needs haircut) Bottom’s up! We meet at McDonalds and find a quiet place, which is a half mile from my house. It’s a nice little walk.
My learner called to tell me that he had car troubles after I got there, so we decided to cancel today and reschedule at some other time. We have more scheduling issues…
I was able to get home and do some more work before eating part B of my lunch, which was the original plan this morning.
Last day of April and here was my list of goals for the month. So, how did I do?
1. Continue with the fit female program. Doing awesome on this. Haven’t missed a workout. I struggle some with the eating, but overall doing well. No scale progress. I stayed exactly the same during the month. I have not taken my measurements this month.
2. Work on hills with my bike. I did a lot of hills, but that was more just from the riding we did to the lake and to Saratoga. The weather was not as cooperative for weekday riding this month. Overall pleased with my month of biking.
3. Spring cleaning! I cleaned all of the windows. I just squeaked it in, too. I did the majority yesterday! 😳 If I hadn’t written it down as a blog goal, I wouldn’t have finished it. They look good, though, and I am very happy about them.
4. Do more stretching. Lame. Just lame. I do bits of stretching here and there, but for whatever reason, this seems to be some kind of sticking point with me.
Not a bad month.
Latte time! Drizzled with some chocolate sauce that John made yesterday.
I am all over the dried pineapple of late. It’s sugary, but it doesn’t seem to set me off like chocolate does. John bought coconut M&Ms and yesterday I had some of those, and then got a huge snack attack last night. I actually went to bed full, which is pretty unusual for me.
Uneventful working until dinner time My mother had brought over some brussel sprouts the other day. She went on a cruise this week – her first! So, she knew my father wouldn’t eat the brussels and brought them over to me before she left 😀
After dinner, it was nice enough to take a bike ride.
Mid to upper 50s, no wind – I will take it! Rain was on the radar, so I left right after dinner to squeeze it in. I did an easy loop around the path:
Then through some tree-lined streets.
I actually ended up passing my dad at the end of this road. I had stopped at the stop sign and his truck drove right by me LOL! I don’t think he saw it was me, though, or he would have stopped. He almost never leaves the house, so it was pretty funny to actually cross paths.
Ali thought I should post my monthly bike miles, so here goes: I did 215 miles on the bike in April, which gives me a total of 318 miles outside on the bike so far this year. Almost all of those miles took place on weekends. I should hit up in the 300s for May with better weather coming.
My evening snack tonight?
Ricotta and applesauce, which I will eat at 8 pm.
Question: How was your April?
