~Singing… Back in the Saddle Again~
So… I am doing it. I am not just saying I will do things, I am not going through the motions, I am back to basics. Friday included a trip to Midtown Global Market for some of the killer produce deals at the Produce Exchange. Blueberries, local snow peas, a HUGE container of Holy Land garlicy humus were purchased I enjoyed walk around the market passing up things like Chubby Girl Cheesecake and Pho, but enjoying the buzz of the market. I bounced to Burnsville for work, and then thru Super Target for some fresh corn, carrots, mushrooms broccoli slaw and lean meats.
Back to basics I keep repeating. Water, water, water, I keep reminding myself this is a key step! I always have problems with my hydration. This may be my biggest stumbling block. I haven’t found a bottle that works for me yet… best thing i can do is take one of the iced tea cups from caribou and keep reusing that until it dies. (yes I have the reuseable cold cups, they aren’t the same).
The fridge is now packed with lots of fruit and veggies, lots at eye level. There are some easy go to foods in there, deli-ham (sings ham-ham-ham-ham-ham-ham in the conga-style song) hard-boiled eggs, sandwich thins. I am ready to rock this thing again.
Tracking is still going according to plan. I have gotten 3-workouts in at the gym this week and one non-gym workout. Next week I am hoping to try out the MN Nice Ride bikes to see if that is something that is of interest to me for the year. Not sure if I can actually ride a real bike… I can handle the stationary ones in the gym… but I dunno how my hip will handle a real live bike… but excitement is in the air!
Hope everyone is enjoying their first weekend of the summer!
