I finally managed to get to the lake for a bike ride! I had so much fun too. The weather was perfect and I had more than enough sunlight. I was worried about getting stranded too far away from my car when it started getting dark. I don't have any lighting equipment at all. There were a lot of walkers and runners out so I opted to veer onto a low traffic country road so I wouldn't have to worry about swerving around crazy children and deaf runners. I rode 8 miles in 40 minutes. That isn't too shabby considering it was windy as hell and I chose a route with a monster hill. Yay me. :)
I'm not sure what the deal is but, my calorie count for the last 3 days has been incredibly low..... I haven't been hungry. Maybe it's because I'm eating a large amount of super low calorie things. I've made a monster salad every night. THREE cups of greens, plus alfalfa sprouts, tomatos, feta cheese and a hard boiled egg. Normally I don't use dressing if I'm eating feta in a salad. You don't even need dressing because the saltiness from the cheese is so strong. I've been using spray dressing too. Normally I don't get into gimmicky diet stuff, but it actually tastes good and it's really low calorie. Lunch and breakfast all three days has been only fruits and veggies. :) It's amazing how much energy I have on so few calories.
My plan for the weekend? Hubby has to work. Boo. Saturday while he's gone I'm going to go crazy cleaning the house and maybe work on my flower bed if the weather isn't crappy. I'm hoping to make it to the lake to ride both days, depending on how I feel.
Ummmm.....not much else to say right now. Gonna go make some coffee and settle onto the couch for a Tremors movie marathon with the hubby.
