I woke up on the late side this morning, so I had brunch instead of breakfast. I made myself this interesting ground turkey/egg/potato/spinach/tomato concoction that turned out DELICIOUS. I didn't use any butter or salt...just olive oil cooking spray and hope that it wouldn't taste nasty when I was done. I also seasoned the ground turkey with Emeril's Chicken Rub before I cooked it. Next time, I want to add onions, green onions, and peppers to the mix!
I plopped some onto some wheat toast with avocado, topped it with sriracha, and was a very happy camper indeed! Talk about a delicious and healthy meal! I ended up eating it again after my bike ride because I enjoyed it so much. I ate about the same amount shown on this sandwich as an after workout snack without any bread, and I washed it down with this *delicious* Green Goodness juice made by Bolthouse Farms...

Today's bike ride was GLORIOUS. No insane hurricane-like head wind, no frigid and drizzly weather... Just welcomed sunshine and a slight breeze. I was enjoying the ride so much that I lost track of how many laps I did on the loop. I thought I had done 7 laps, but according to my GPS, I only did about 6. I wish I had a more accurate way of tracking my bike rides, but finances won't allow me to invest in one of those groovy heart monitor tracker devices for a while. Oh, well... I figure the app on my phone is close enough. The app (MapMyRide) says that I rode about 14.65 miles, but it's usually a bit under what the math adds up to according to the distances marked at the trail. So I'm guessing I biked somewhere between 15 and 16 miles today. AND. IT. WAS. AWESOME.

Overall, I worked SUPER hard today, and I'm loving the sore muscles. My back hurts a little bit more than I'd like, but only because I think I bent over in a stupid way while I was getting ready to head out to bike. Otherwise, I am feeling almost euphoric with how much I've been working out and eating better again lately.
Yay! I haven't seen a zero after the 135 since November!! Here's hoping I'm on the right track back to working towards my goal.
That's all, folks! I think I'll hit the gym early before church tomorrow morning like I used to. Here's hoping I'm disciplined enough to get my butt out of bed on time!
Also, just because it's been upsetting that I had such a higher number on the scale on Thursday, I decided to see if all that was just water weight...
I had to run a couple of errands after my shower, and then I enjoyed a bowl of apple cinnamon oatmeal for supper.

Goodnight, everybody. I hope you're enjoying your weekend!
