Only burned about half the calories. Totally worth it!See this image largerMorning springtime bike ride in Minnesota.

Irrationally, I've got my amazing little man with my on a 25 mile bike ride. Going slow, enjoying the scenery and loving spending time with my youngest! Is from the trip to come later.See this image largerPicnic lunch with my little man on our Mother's Day bike ride. Ended up being 28 miles total. Little man had a bit of a meltdown at about mile 17 (he's on the autism spectrum and these are common when he feels overwhelmed) but managed to pull himself together and mace it through the last 11 miles. So proud of him. Here's to modeling healthy activities and persistence.See this image largerFeeling good this morning. Down to 177.4 today from 189.2 less than 3 weeks ago and I think I might be seeing some change in the before and during photos already. Before is on the left, during is on the right.See this image largerLunch today.

Now off to the home improvement store for kitchen remodel supplies and the grocery store for self remodel supplies.See this image largerI love when you work out after breakfast and before lunch and suddenly you've got your full day of calories available again! Yummy sweet potato hah for breakfast and a beautiful quick bike ride today now that the sun is out finally.See this image largerSo my weight loss slowed down for a while (seemingly none for about a week) but today I am down a total of 13 pounds exactly since May 1. More importantly, I have definitely been losing inches. Feeling motivated to keep going today. Now to just keep it up.See this image largerFinished my day with a yummy combo of ground turkey, chipotle pepper, bell peppers, brown rice and avocado with a side of seasoned black beans. Under 500 calories, super filling and really tasty.See this image largerDown to 175 even this morning and my birthstone ring that hubby got me last Christmas finally fits!See this image largerOkay, I had a couple of off days. Didn't track my food well and didn't get much exercise. No weight lost but no weight gained. Today I decided to buck up and really focus on pushing myself again. I started the day with a 20 mile bike ride (at about a mile per hour faster than last time) and then got healthy groceries for the week. Now I'm planning on mowing the lawn once it cools down just a bit. Making healthy choices and logging everything. Back on track and loving it!See this image largerGot a great bike ride in this morning. Added another 2 miles to my ride (22 total today) and added a bit to my MPH too (13.1 now after starting out smooth ago at just barely 12). I also managed to go 12.5 miles before stopping for a quick break (was stopping every 4 miles at first) and that break was mostly just because this spot just felt like it deserved a little mindfulness. The scale hasn't gone anywhere in the last week but gotta love those #NSV's !!!See this image largerYummy salad for a late lunch today. Leaf lettuce fresh from the Farmers' Market with apple, chicken, and pecans dressed with spicy peanut sauce sweetened with a tiny bit of maple syrup. Delicious and about 350 calories!See this image largerDidn't get a chance to get a bike ride in but burned a few calories raking up branches and then brought my son to visit a friend of mine at her farm to see her pigs. She's had a hard go of things recently so it was nice to visit for a bit and give her a hug. Remember to hug the ones you love. 👪See this image largerStrawberry spinach salad with pork and a light balsamic vinaigrette for lunch. Yummy and colourful.See this image largerI planned ahead today, got a good workout in ahead of time and then truly and mindfully enjoyed a delicious chocolate pomegranate cupcake with my son (logged it in Spark, of course). He has a therapy appointment every other Thursday morning and every other time he goes we stop at a local bakery and have a cupcake. This is a routine that is important to him and planning ahead means I can continue to enjoy it with him. Being properly mindful also means that I can enjoy it more myself.See this image largerBusted my record for a bike ride this year. Almost 36 miles in 2 hours and 48 minutes. Almost 1800 calories burned! I could barely lift the bike back onto the carrier when I got done and my legs only want to move in circular motion but I did it! 💪See this image largerMade it 42.8 miles on my bike ride this morning! I want even sore until about 27 miles in. By 32 miles my thighs were burning. The last five or so miles were spent yelling at myself, swearing, and convincing myself that I wasn't ACTUALLY going to die! 😰😰😰 But, I made it! Some Advil and a hot bath later and I can even walk again! 😁😁 My goal is to be able to do the whole trail out and back- 80 miles total. I'm past the half way point.See this image largerSee this image largerI hadn't been out on my bike hardly at all this week. Between taking asoftball to the face on Saturday (hand eye coordination is not my thing 😉) and being sleep deprived along with my son for his EEG on Wednesday, I just hadn't felt like doing much. Decided to suck it up and get moving this morning. Got in 9 miles and it felt good! Plus, you gotta love when the scenery makes it all worthwhile.See this image largerI made it over 50 miles today!See this image largerI haven't been on my bike hardly at all for almost two weeks but today I got out and did a metric century- 100 km (62 miles although I ended up doing 64 because I forgot to start my GPS at first). A new personal record!See this image largerFinally made it over a huge plateau this week. Had been sitting at about the same weight for at least a month. As of today, I am down a total of 32 pounds! Have patience and keep working on being healthy, the rest will take care of itself.See this image largerYummy omelette with mushrooms, onions, and chicken andouille sausage. Down six pound even since New Year's Day. Happy Sunday everyone!
