I was so busy Monday that I didn't get to blog. So here is Monday and Tuesday.
Monday morning I woke up and decided to have a bowl of multi grain Cheerios with a peach, raspberries, and skim milk for breakfast.
Lunch was not typical in that I ate a Luna bar and then went to the mall to get frozen yogurt at Mr. Smoothie....yum:)
After lunch, Steve and I went on a 20 mile bike ride. My average heart rate was 156 and the highest it got was 175. I burned 650 calories in 1 hour 15 minutes.
After our bike ride I had orange juice mixed with sparkling water. I had to rush to shower and get to our neighbors by 5pm. This was the first time they had invited us to dinner in the almost 2 years we lived in our house.
I didn't take any pictures because this was the first time we spent more than 5 minutes with our neighbors. Didn't want to weird them out. I ate a very good baked potato with salt and pepper, cooked green beans, a piece of garlic bread, and a little salad.
For dessert I had a piece of homemade apple pie, which was outstanding. Oh I also had a wine cooler with dinner.
For breakfast I had oatmeal, a peach, and a vanilla greek yogurt. This was so filling that I was amazed. I guess it was all the protein in the greek yogurt.My yogurt held me until lunch at 12:15. I had some of the whole wheat orzo salad I made over the weekend (orzo, artichokes, chick peas, tomatoes, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar). Mixed into the pasta salad was one of my favorite Garden Burgers:
Here is the pasta salad mixed with the garden burger:
With my pasta salad I had some grapes:
My afternoon snack around 4pm was a Kashi bar and a skim sugar free vanilla latte.
While making dinner I snacked on a handful of Kashi crackers.
For dinner I made Vegan ravioli with a sauce I made with jarred spaghetti sauce, morningstar crumbles, mushrooms, and chick peas. I picked up this ravioli at Whole Foods and I highly recommend it. Steve loves it too. I'm so lucky that he enjoys meals without meat (even though he enjoys a good steak when he can)!

After dinner Steve, Sophie, and I took a walk at North Park, which is 5 minutes from our house. A walk around the lake can be 5 miles, or there is a shortcut that we use often which is 4.7 miles. Today, Sophie was so good running and walking (Steve only had to hold her for 1 mile total I bet). We averaged 14 minutes per mile. So the walk was 1 hour 16 minutes total.
Driving to the park:
Here are some views of North Park. The path is around a huge lake.
I am super tired and have a busy work day tomorrow, so goodnight, sleep tight!!
