Today was a great day! I hope you all feel the same way! 🙂
I did a lot of new things today. For starters, I have now mastered riding a bike in a skirt in the rain. Comical, right? I typically ride my bike to work and today just so happened to turn into a storm day. Oh, well! The rain was much needed to help poor Mother Earth!
The second new thing I did today: try a veggie burger! And the verdict is…. (drum roll, please!) I AM HOOKED! I was always skeptical but I really enjoyed it! I even got the boyfriend in on the action, and needless to say, he and I both made it into the clean plate club! We had some rice, apple sauce, and salads with dinner as well. A+ meal if I do say so myself!
After dinner, the two of us started our work out regimen for the cycling race we are doing in September. We are following an 8 week plan and today was day number one. It was a lot of leg lifts just to build strength, and tomorrow is our first ride!
We left the gym, and then we added a few more things to the list of firsts for the day. Together, we made Raw Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Balls. I have seen so much in the blog world about them, and everyone is totally right. They are amazing. Perfect little snack! 🙂
After the cookie dough balls, we then made another recipe I have been wanting to try. We made Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal Cakes. We made them mostly so I could have one for breakfast in the morning, but we had to try one this evening, too! Another great item to add to the list of easy to make, delicious recipes!
As I have more time, I hope to add new things to my list of firsts!
