What a great weekend, but my poor legs! I put them through the paces. From Friday morning through Monday – I put 100 miles on the bike! Doing 100 miles in a week is pretty standard for me, but I don’t usually do that all squished into 4 days with no rest. It’s so hard to stay off the bike because I love to ride. That much exercise also gets my appetite all out of whack. I did take the weekend off from lifting to get some kind of break, but then I went and lifted this morning. Yep – tired legs. Must not over train.
I was standing and stretching (yes – I was stretching!!!) with my arms over my head. I told John that I felt like a tree. Strong solid base and strong branches. I just wish I could be a little taller and be a willowy tree instead of a stocky tree, but I guess that means I can weather storms better, right?
Breakfast after I got back from the gym was oatmeal cooked with craisins and egg whites.
Pretty simple and hot. Duh. I had to let this set and get cool because it was already hot outside when I got back from the gym.
So hot today. Bahhh! I really dislike humidity. I get puffy and squishy and hate that feeling. Poor Pixie was feeling the heat:
We have our window AC in the upstairs bedroom, but not the downstairs yet. We really don’t need it after we got the new windows installed, but the windows don’t help with humidity. The air was so oppressive and still and then the skies opened up with rain. Just in time for an iced latte, too!
After that storm, another round came through and it got really, really dark.
This is about 4:30 in the afternoon. Really windy and rainy with a big T-storm. Then we lost power. That meant no internet, so no more work. I ate some potato chips and we sort of waited to see if this was going to be a temporary outage or not. Turns out not, so we waited until the worst of the storm blew over and cooked our dinner outside (no power = no stove).
I put some broccoli florets in the foil packet with some coconut oil and S&P. John cooked up a few sweet potato fries for himself. Meat today was wild caught salmon with maple glaze.
It turned out pretty good!
I had to take this picture outside because it was too dark inside with no lights 😀
Power came back on after a couple of hours, so I am back on the internet working and getting this post up. I can’t believe tomorrow is Wednesday already!
