Well folks I’ve re-learned how to ride a bike! I do look great in a helmut don’t I?
On Saturday night Jefferson and I rode about 4-5 km (total) to and from his folks’ cottage and that was a bit of a shaky ride It’s really strange having to re-learn something you knew how to do 15 years ago.
And then YESTERDAY we rode 10 km (total) to and from my folks’ place! The cardio workout is phenomenal and the hills on that part of the transcanada trail are intense!
We also got rained on a bunch which was actually a welcomed thing due to the fact that I was super sweaty!
All in all, we both absolutely loved the bike rides, though our bums would tell a different story
Yesterday, before the ride, I woke up and watched Tangled (It’s one of my favorites!) and ate some Wholesome Hemp granola, banana, strawberries and almond milk:
Once Jeff finally rolled out of bed he ate and we hit the road!
We were just going to wish my pops a Happy Fathers Day but we should have known better…Mom fed us…Mom fed us like we were heading into the Zombie Apocalypse and we were never going to eat again.
I knew I had a heck of a bike ride waiting for me so I kept it light…
I enjoyed a dribble of cranberry raspberry juice:
And a few crackers with spicy artichoke & asiago cheese dip:
And a bowl of homemade soup (my mom is the queen of soup and I can only hope to have a sliver of her talent in this regard…Though my chili is FAR better than hers I’m just saying)
Followed by some unpictured watermelon!
After lunch it POURED rain and when it finally calmed down a bit, we hit the road! At first we didn’t know if we should turn back but it’s really not that long of a ride so we pressed on!
What a view!
Many crazy hills and “almost” accidents on my part later, we made it home! And just in time too! The sky opened up just minutes after we got home
The rest of the afternoon was spent watching The West Wing, getting our measurements done for our countertops and eating a “I can’t really cook much without a countertop” supper!
I made Jefferson grilled cheese and myself some leftover chili with a BISSkit!
Note to self: If you are going to heat leftover chili in your toaster oven, allow for at least 20 minutes!
Once supper was done, and a few more episodes of The West Wing too, we headed back to the city…and watched another episode of The West Wing THEN it was bed time!
This morning I woke up at 4:30 am, did Leslie Sansone’s 3 Mile Slim & Sleek pilates workout and made myself some breakfast!
Underneath all those rolled oats are some blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, banana and honey greek yogurt:
All mixed up:
So that was Sunday/today’s breakfast!
Tonight I am meeting an old co-worker/friend for dinner at Café Orange for some Korean cuisine and good company!
