I went on a great meandering walk yesterday with two of my awesomest friends. It was really nice to get out there, have a good talk (ok when I wasn't all out of breath from walking up hills!) and I just love getting exercise out there with other people. Also, I really love where I live. It's so pretty!
Here is how I did yesterday:
Burned 2727 calories
Consumed 1480 calories
Deficit of 1247 calories
So yesterday's blog post is something I felt super strongly about, because I hate when people think my confidence is undeserved, that I should hide in a corner just because I'm fat. I may be shy but when you get to know me I am...well I'm really pleased with myself! But the comments on the post were so great, they put just a HUGE smile on my face all day - what an awesome feeling :) you guys are great, so thank you so much for reading and thank you for commenting!!
Today though I am thinking about dinner - I woke up thinking about dinner. In a good way, I promise! Long, long ago, when Husbandcake was Boyfriendcake and we lived out in San Francisco - we got bored with our food. I found myself making the same few dishes week after week and never changing it up. So we came up with an awesome idea - New Recipe Monday. Every Monday a brand new recipe, something totally different. And on lazy Mondays...well we still tried something, even if it was as simple as a new and different premade pasta sauce. But like all awesome ideas (even my very favorite, which I will call "Give KyokoCake $100 Spending Money For Every Pound Lost") it just died out as time went on.
Well I'm planning on making those Monday walks a regular thing (whether or not my friends like it) so Mondays are out. It wasn't a super long walk but I was exhausted yesterday, and definitely not up for cooking. So I've decided that I am going to make it New Recipe Tuesday - with a twist! I'm going to try new and only healthy recipes. Every Tuesday, something different, something really good for me.
What should I do today? I had this plan to make what sounds like delicious banana ice cream - but I was thinking that I am feeling really ambitious today and I want to make super healthy dinner beforehand. Any ideas? There are so many recipes out there I don't even know where to start, except that it's easy to cut a ton of them out because I don't eat spicy food, nor do I eat anything that has black pepper in it. Other than that though, no clues!!
Last random subject change in that I'm really trying to reach my weekly goal and I want to ask anyone else out there - is it worth it to spend money on a good bike? I don't think I would ever go on trail rides - so it would mostly be to go to the grocery store (2.5 miles each way) or maybe a little farther to run errands. I do live in a hilly area, on a hill, and my options are:
I don't mind spending the money I am just wondering if anyone else thinks it's worth it?
