Yesterday, it was 9 o’clock before I actually rolled out of bed. Right away, I knew I had pancakes on the mind, and I know Travis loves them, too. I immediately thought of Tina’s recipe, got all three of the ingredients (times 3), and in a few quick minutes, breakfast was served!
I topped mine with some defrosted frozen berries. The juice from the berries made a great syrup substitute!
For lunch, I made half of Farrah’s Hazelnut Almond Butter recipe and had an almond butter and jelly sandwich. The nut butter is amazing!
Alongside the mini sandwich, I had some veggies and garlic hummus. YUM.
Following lunch, it was time to bust out the trainer and get riding with my new pedals and shoes. And I can say that, after 45 minutes, I went from clipping in and out on my stationary trainer, to riding on a car-free road, to stopping and starting at intersections in the neighborhood. I mixed up starting on inclines, declines, etc. And I can now say that, even though I still need more practice, I have a pretty good sense on the whole thing. I didn’t track mileage or anything, but I’d say I got a bit of a ride in between stationary and road cycling!
I didn’t quite call it my workout for the day, though. Catch Me If You Can was on TV, and since it is one of my all-time favorite movies, I watched it while doing one of Julie’s home “no equipment needed” workouts.
It was a great workout, and left me quite sweaty! Sweaty and hungry! Too hungry to make dinner. Hey, I made breakfast…that’s enough, right? We ordered from Alfredo’s: our favorite Shippensburg pizza place. I got a chicken caesar salad + black olives and with raspberry vinaigrette instead of the normal dressing. Travis got a chicken cheesesteak, and we also had jalapeno poppers (not the biggest fan) and some fries. I only was able to eat half of my salad. Yay for lunch today!
Today is also my last day of animal duty! It’s been a good two weeks, but it will be nice to have a little more free time in addition to the end of class. For those of you who were concerned, I finished my project with plenty of time to spare .
Travis and I are hoping to get a good ride in today (with our new shoes and pedals of course!). It’s showing some storms today, but we’re keeping our fingers crossed!
