today's weigh-in: 163.0lb
up about 1.5lbs from last week.
Not surprising given my travels last week. I'm happy to say I'm home all this week & I don't anticipate any travel for the rest of this month. yippeee!!!!
I just find this banded life a little easier when I'm home. I'm going to hit the gym tonight - my gym bag is packed & out in my car. I planned out the week's dinners on Saturday & went shopping to get everything.
Here's what on the menu:
Sunday (yesterday): Shrimp & Cheddar Grits pretty good & SUPER fast. one of the restaurants around my house offers something like this & I love it so I decided to try it at home. I added some mild green chiles to the grits - they were great. good comfort food. the shrimp was ok but I'll try it again with different seasoning. leftovers for lunch today. yum!
Monday: Chicken Enchiladas
Tuesday: Chicken & Asparagus with melted gruyere
Wed: Hoisin Chicken with mashed sweet potatoes
Thursday: Scallops with Cucumber Salad
My big bike race is in about two weeks & I'm getting nervous. I have no idea what I was thinking when I signed up for the 67-mile course. To help me prepare, my hubs organized a distance ride for us yesterday. We got a babysitter for the kid to make it a little easier & then headed out. We went west up to Golden, past Red Rocks, through Morrison, down C470 to Chatfield Reservoir, up past South Pearl Street over to Wash Park for a few laps then up Cherry Creek trail & past the big REI downtown and on home. Total ride: 55mile. Total time: 4h 43min (including 2 rest stops) Total calories: 2473 burned.
I hadn't been eating particularly well lately & not drinking enough water either. I could totally feel it on the ride. So now I have two weeks to fuel right & hydrate well for this race....
Looking forward to a low key week at home.
