How is it already 5:00!?!? It feels more like 3. I guess it’s because I didn’t eat lunch until 2!
We spent the whole middle of the day on the move – biking for about an hour and a quarter and then mowing the lawn. We biked to the greenway, biked the 4 miles of it, then came out the other side and biked home. I’m guessing it was about 10-12 miles? Then I ended up mowing the whole yard! The back yard is fun because it’s big and makes those nice lines. I wore my HRM the whole time and here were my stats:
In Zone: 4:30
Avg. HR: 99
As you can see, I was moving for 2 hours but my heart rate wasn’t that high despite biking fast and some hills. I should have thrown in some cardio sprint drills to spike it up! But the whole point was just to keep moving through fun activities, so it’s fine as is And who knows how accurate the HRM really is when you’re not that much in the cardio zone.
I came inside to make a huggggeeee delicious salad!
But I started with a piece of watermelon
I toasted a slice of the husband’s sourdough to make homemade croutons.
And I grilled carrots, peppers, and a peach!
I also tossed in a cup or so of leftover blue cornmeal okra.
The rest of the toppings: 1 slice cooked bacon, goat cheese crumbles, and leftover lemon-olive oil dressing that Karen made.
The husband made a huge salad as well. His was a BLT with jalapeno and croutons. Check out the size of his bowl – he used our giant salad bowl!
I’m trying to work on my to-do list so I can start tomorrow fresh. Ahhhhh! There’s too much to do.
