Oh HEY y’all. Don’t mind me, i’ve just been over here, trying to widdle myself down, and with the warm weather arriving in NYC, i have begun riding my bike, to and from work.
IT IS NOT EASY. ABOVE, you can see a few to and from ride calorie burns.
TOP LEFT: i think my first ride: To, and From.
TOP RIGHT: , my husband and i rode for a few hours one saturday, all the way downtown ( and then took the train back cuz we weren’t in the mood for the long haul back haha) BUT 1400 cals!! proud.
BOTTOM left: this mornings to work ( burned less cuz i made it quicker)
BOTTOM RIGHT: yesterday’s to work ( took a little longer, got lost. haha)
BUT as you can see, its a GREAT workout, and a super serene way to get to work. There’s no gross train people, no screaming begging homeless people, no 6 kids screaming and throwing rice crispies at each other, no PACKED crowded train with people shoving your face into the windows of the doors like its rush hour in china, and noones elbow in your neck. Its a beautiful way to get to work, and calms someone like me down a lot. Riding through traffic in manhattan is a REALLY stressful, but once you can get to the bike path and shoot all the way down, its gorgeous:
The only other thing you have to fear, are OTHER riders. Some cyclists in this damn city think they are in the tour de france every morning, on a shared bike path, with people AND dogs, AND bikes….they try to mow us down haha. But other than that, its really fun.
THAT BEING SAID: BBQ SEASON IS UPON US!!!! it is SO FUN to fire up the grill ( and i am blessed to have a backyard) and a ridiculously healthy way of eating that i plan to take FULL advantage of this season.
Here’s a little peek at the menu from the other night. NEVER MIND THE BOTTLE OF WHITE WINE. its my all time FAVORITE and it was a beautiful day, we were celebrating the start of the season with a few friends a little.( i was good and didn’t have too much. ) PLUS, i had walked home from work the night before-it was A HAULLLL- and burned over 900 calories. SO I DESERVED A SIP OR 2 OF VINO. SHUT UP.
never mind all that junk , we’re redoing the garden- But there’s some lovely grilled food for ya. Grilled corn, asparagus, peppers and onions. Whole fish. Shrimp. Last night, i made salmon and asparagus, with enough leftovers for todays lunch, so super excited.
Trying really hard to stay focused. I’ve got 2 big trips coming up this year. One in august, and one in december. I want to look REALLY good for both trips, I have a small goal in mind for August. But by december, i want to see REAL serious results.
STAY IN THE GAME BITCHES!
