Happy Sunday–what’s left of it at least!
I made french toast for us this morning. Mine was topped with nutella, raspberries, and powdered sugar. Yummy!
Since the weather has been gorgeous here this weekend, Craig and I finally went on our first bike ride together of the summer.
I tried the Gatorade G Series Fit series today. I will get it free via rebate from Walgreens, so I figured it was worth trying and reviewing for the blog.
First, I started with one prime bar since I knew we were not going too far on our ride. It was tasty.
We loaded the bikes onto Craig’s car and went to Silver Spring Drive to leave off where we ended our ride last summer on the Oak Leaf trail. Craig wants to ride the entire trail slowly over the years, which is fine with me because it also forces us to bike in areas we might not necessarily choose to, like today’s ride. It was nice, don’t get me wrong, it just wasn’t the most scenic (except if you count the bridge with the train above it).
The only snag we hit today was some water on the trail and we had to go around it by getting on some city sidewalks. Right before I took this photo, there was a mama duck with her babies in the water and they were so cute! I am sad I didn’t get them on camera.
We took a break at mile 4 and I tried some of the Melon Pear gatorade drink. Both Craig and I really liked this flavor.
However, this is kind of gross-my honest opinion: drinking gatorade in general brings to mind the awful colonoscopies I have had to have for the last three years. Psychologically, I hate the prep part of the colonoscopy and drinking gatorade or powerade is crucial to keep electrolytes in my body, I know this. You just get to a point where your stomach is so full and you can’t drink any more of the stuff. Drinking it today still conjured up those bad memories.
I also munched on a few almonds.
Craig (unintentionally) looking pretty serious as he ate a cherry pie larabar for some fuel.
We biked 7.68 miles in the end. Not bad!
Once home, I tried the Mixed Berry recover drink and it was my least favorite of the Gatorade G series fit products. The flavor was just off. I couldn’t even drink any more because it was so gross.
After having pizza for lunch, I was tired so I laid on the couch for an hour and crashed. Then I just read a book and magazine outside, made salsa, and did some housework.
Making salsa seems to be our new Sunday night tradition! This batch turned out better thanks to lime juice and fresh garlic. I added some lime to my woodchuck cider and it hit the spot. A nice summery treat!
Time to prep for the week ahead! I am hoping to get more sleep this week in general. Must get to bed earlier from now on.
