BLEND ALL WITH ICE…….
THIS is my new fav breakfast. Wayyyy under 300 calories and it is to die for tasty. And let’s face it. Any excuse to get hopped on coffee- done and done. NEXT.
Today was a day, when I had 0 will to live,let alone ride my bike to and from work and to and from plans tonight. But I DID IT. I was laying on my couch at 8:40 this morning with my dog and my furry blanket, thinking there’s NO WAY km gonna ride in. I’m sore from the squat challenge(more on that later.) and I had 0 energy. And you know worked??? This is gonna sound RIDICULOUS- but were here for the truth, right?? ———
INSTAGRAM! Whenever I feel like I have nothing to give- I turn to all these bitches that are killing it on Instagram just like I am- who have the balls to tag all their before photos , and every meal they eat and their scary sweaty work outs… I made my way through the feed of strong beast chicks and then hit the #weightloss hashtag- and thoughT YES. I wanna get up and be one of these sweaty sore-happy they worked out-chicks. And I did.
After work, I met my friend for a glass of rosé at an outdoor cafe… I mean…. WHAT IS NYC for if you can’t do that?!!
I rode my bike 30 blocks with him In the basket.
LIVE FOR THIS:
I burned 500 cals riding there and back together- and it was BRILLIANT, cuz it’s Like the wine and cheese never happened! Hahahah.
Just wanted to throw this photo from yesterday up here real quick!
Happy to report, that my ankle permitted me to finally bike ride yesterday!! I haven’t been able to work out since it happened, but id been walking pretty normally and biking is low impact so I went for it and SO glad I did! Today I’m sore and it feels effing amazing. I burned like 1800 calories! The humidity really almost made me puke though. Also: I made the mistake of wearing 2 sports bras, and halfway down I had to pull over and maneuver the bottom one off between 2 parked cars-i felt like someone was sitting on my chest, or like a belt was strapped with a brick to my tits. Once I could finally breathe, I wasn‘t so dizzy- and the rest of the ride was fine. Anyone ever do this?? I’m so afraid of not having enough support, I do this ALL the time!! You’d think I’d learn by now!
We rode all the way downtown and shared those 3 dishes. Ceviche, causa rellena, and a skirt steak with rice (tAcu tAcu-is what they call it hahaha) we are going back to Peru in December- I CANNOT EFFING WAIT!! Hoping to be past my first long term goal weight by then too.
The view from Randall’s Island.
So this weekend was lots and lots of grilling in the backyard, and a 13 mile bike ride! Burned about 1200 calories.
In about 3 hours (with some stops, and stop for lunch) We rode from our house, over the bridge to Randalls island and across the Triboro Bridge into Queens. Then all around Astoria, and BACK the exact same way. HOT DAMN the Triboro nearly killed me. That bridge was SOOOOO steep:
Then, the bridge ITSELF (above) was SOOOO steep, all incline, so we stopped halfway across to take stupid pictures:
THEN we rode around Astoria, Queens-which is where we used to live.
SUUUUUUUUUPER CORNY ALERT:
(like super really really cheesey corny: )
Made turkey sandwiches with a little turkey bacon and lettuce, on low carb 40 calorie-a-slice- bread. (THRILLING, I KNOW.)
he had a chips, and i (he ate half of it anyway) had this popcorn i am OBSESSED WITH: its like 120 calories for 4 CUPS!! 2 cups is more than enough, so you’re eating half a serving….i’ll have to update with the name later)
After lunch, we went to our favorite antique store in Astoria (the best stuff, i want EVERYTHING all the time but bought nothing because A-i’m broke, (which never really matters) but mostly :B-you can’t carry a vintage wooden bar cart on your back on the triboro bridge on a bike.)
AND then we rode home, the exact way we came. And the bridge is JUST as difficult on the way home.
We got home with jello legs, and threw some skirt steak on the grill. Also had a little corn, and asparagus.
The marinade: olive oil, soy sauce(low sodium) shallots, garlic, pepper, lemon pepper seasoning, and Thyme.
Thrown on the grill. Made enough to share with the people upstairs, and have for leftovers. ITS SO GOOD it makes my brain explode.
This is pretty much going to be my whole summer. Bike riding and grilling. (AND SKINNY FOR THE LOVE OF GOD)
it was too cold to ride to work this morning,(WTF WITH THIS WEATHER)…so i’m hitting up a CARDIO JAM class after work, PUKE.
Have a good week guys!!!(perky skinny girl voice)
