It was an active day today. First off was an early morning workout. I had to scrap frost off the car window since it was 28 degrees! 😡 Back to arms again.

Noodle arms! I actually don’t care to work my arms this much, but I am following a month long program.
It’s really good to get into a strength routine again. Now that things are feeling more or less back to normal – or my new normal, I suppose – it is time to tighten up my eating. I want to get off the weight I put on this year with all that freaking stress I was under with the job and the house. No better time to start than right now. No need to wait until after the holidays, right?
Interestingly, I was offered a month of frozen food to try from a paleo/low carb type of food service. I thought about it, but then realized that it was too restrictive for me and that was not a road I wanted to go down.
I also realize that if I am not willing to eat less then I really need to move more. Ideally I will eat a little less and move a little more 😀
Today I happened to move a lot more. The weather was amazing today. After starting out at 28 degrees, it warmed up to 60 degrees and I knew I had to play hooky and get a ride in!
Again, I am lucky with my job that I can move my work hours around to take advantage of this weather.
The bike path had other bikers on it with the same idea today.
It was a little breezy, but great to be out. Each time we ride now, we wonder if it is the last ride of the season. There is some cold weather coming up. We got in 9 miles.
John got dinner going this morning. He made crockpot red beans and rice. He has moved to mostly vegetarian eating, so he used a vegetarian andouille sausage in this. It’s not quite real sausage, but tastes pretty good.
Even better when someone else cooks, too 😀
For more activity, we walked downtown tonight. I got in an hour and 45 minutes of activity today. Not quite enough to erase 7 hours of sitting for my job, but not too shabby!
