Happy Monday! Today has been going great! I started today with a PB & J smoothie with hemp hearts and have stuck with my eating, just finished lunch. I really need to focus on my eating, big time! Let’s be honest… my food focus has been horrible the past
few weeks month. Getting in activity has been super easy despite not running much lately, I’ve been on my bike daily. My right knee is still a little eh, going to rest one more day today and go for a 30 min run tomorrow morning to see how it feels. There is a chance I may have to sit out Sunday’s race… really don’t want to, so we’ll see!
One thing I did this weekend that I never thought I would do was join a DietBet! It’s for May and my friend Tamara is hosting it so I figured… why not?! I need something to help motivate me to get back on track, maybe money will do it, who knows! I’m a little nervous about it, won’t lie lol! The goal is to lose 4% of your starting weight in 4 weeks, seems easy enough but that will be around 9 lbs lol! I used to lose 10-12 lbs per month in the beginning, but after losing over 90 lbs it has slowed down a lot so I will do my best and work my butt off, then see what happens! I really don’t want to focus on weight loss right now but I need focus on my eating so that is a bonus to eating better… weight loss.
This morning I got in a 12 mile bike ride, had a great time! There was some wind heading south that was felt… oh, was it felt! Looking at my heart rate on the ride… it was for sure noticed lol! I’m really anxious to try out some new trails, love the one I go on but it’s getting old lol! So maybe I’ll get the courage to load my bike on the car rack this week and head to Tempe for a ride.
This weekend we killed it in the backyard! We got so much work done, tree’s planted, and cleaned. Almost two years ago we had a vision and started working on the small space food forest for our home, it was hard to see the outcome on most days, some days I regretted even starting this whole project… but now, we are so thrilled with the changes!
Between the two pics we have pulled up about 2-3 rows of brick to enlarge the grow space a bit. Had all the bougainvillea removed, then slowly started to plant in trees little by little. If you have planted fruit trees before then you know how pricey some trees can be! So we did it over the course of a year and a half or so. Our yard is far from done but it’s finally starting to look less like a project, which I love haha!
