In the beginning of the summer, I made myself some healthy goals for the next few months. While the goals themselves are good (drink more water, eat more produce, exercise), the idea behind the goals was weight loss. I’ve been home for a little over a month now and so far, I have not lost any weight. I’m eating much better than I was at school as far as nutrition and I’m definitely more active. Lately I’ve been finding this to be discouraging because for the past two summers in a row, I have lost about 10 pounds by the time the fall semester starts. The numbers on the scale do matter to an extent, but I think I have found numbers that matter much more.
(Being able to lift heavier weights)
(Being able to run for a longer period of time)
(Being able to do one more sit up)
Yesterday morning I decided to try out the strawberry jam I made on Sunday. I put a scoop in my oatmeal for a breakfast of PB&J oats!
I had a slow day at work today so when I got home, I had some energy to go for a bike ride with my mom.
But first, we ate a smorgasbord of leftovers for dinner!
Annie’s white cheddar mac and cheese, quinoa, asparagus, and corn and black bean salsa.
Along with a salad.
Our bike ride ended up being about 40 minutes, and I definitely felt it in my legs.
I haven’t been on a bike in a long, long time! Even the little hills hurt.
While my mom was pedaling ahead of me, I just kept thinking about the scene in the Wizard of Oz when the wicked witch is biking through the tornado
Enjoy your Tuesday
