Ok road bikers, riddle me this: why the hell would you ride on the road when there is an asphalt/tarmac/whatever road material road bike path (like it says that on the sign) literally five feet from the actual road you’re riding on? Like do you just enjoy watching cars slow wayyy the fuck down and swerve out of your way? Is it more fun when the threat of death is present?
Truly my biggest pet peeve. Get out of the road!!!!!!
Annnd I’m finally back from my trip to Vegas! I am still so exhausted and thrown off by the time difference and traveling. I had such a great time with my boyfriend and all of his friends! Did a little bit of gambling, laying out by the pool, drinking, partying and lots and lots of eating!!! On our last day we went to a $75 per person buffet…it was insane. Never seen a buffet that big. The dessert alone was worth the price. Plus all the girls got free champagne on the house since it was Mother’s day :)
But now it’s back to reality. I am officially going back to the gym tomorrow (had finals at school and heading to work soon, so couldn’t go today). My intake so far today…
Breakfast - Chobani greek yogurt
Lunch - Summer corn chowder soup + whole grain baguette, strawberry and poppyseed salad with blueberries, oranges, strawberries, pineapples, pecans, and chicken
Just started my day off with a nice, healthy and filling breakfast! One egg + 3 egg whites scrambled, 1/2 cup of oatmeal with a drizzle of honey, cinnamon, and a tbsp of chia seeds. And two big cups of water! I’m full. When I get to work, I’m going to grab an orange as well.
Three days til Vegas! I weighed myself today for the first time since January. 148.4… I’m pleased, but thought I had lost a little more. BUT I’m still happy and think I look better and am still making progress so I won’t complain :-)
Ugh, I love my mom but it drives me crazy that she just won’t listen to me about diet and exercise. I constantly have to listen to her bitching about her weight and how fat she feels all the time. Now, my mom is definitely not fat, but she isn’t exactly slender either… I will say that I think she looks pretty damn good for her age and the fact that she eats fast food 3+ times a week and never exercises. But she was recently dumped by the guy she was seeing and now she is on this “health kick”… so she decided to start up Weight Watchers (which she’s done off and on for the past few years and never has consistent results).
So I’m sitting here with her tonight watching TV and she pulls out a Twinkie… just so you know, it’s a Weight Watchers brand twinkie but it’s still a fucking twinkie nonetheless.
I roll my eyes but keep my mouth shut.
30 minutes later (it’s 11:00 at night here FYI) she pulls out an ice cream bar! I go, “Mom, enough with the ice cream before bed!” and she goes, “It’s Weight Watchers!!!” as if that makes it okay. It’s just so delusional. Just because it’s got the Weight Watchers brand name on it does NOT make it even remotely healthy. That shit is so full of fat and sugar! But she thinks that because it fits her allotted points for the day, it’s okay to eat that right before bed… not to mention she does this every. single. night.
So far have had a productive day… Went to class at 9:30 this morning, then came home. Just ran two miles and then biked around the park for 20 minutes! Now I have to go get ready for work, which is sad because it’s absolutely gorgeous outside today!
My intake so far…
Breakfast - Chobani greek yogurt (dark chocolate and raspberry one)
Snack - Half of a whole grain roll with turkey, avocado, swiss cheese, sweet peppers, spinach and onions + an apple on the side
Post-workout - The other half of the sandwich ^ plus 8 oz. of Green Machine Naked juice
Dinner - We will see :) but probably either a big salad with chicken or just a chicken breast with veggies on the side!
Hope you all are having a fantastic day!!
