My tuplis sure have grown up this week
Yesterdays Beautiful 80 degrees and sun was followed by todays cool gusty winds, pouring rain and thunderstorms!
I made some oats with banana, maple almond butter and caramel sauce!
The caramel added a fun twist to a favorite classic
I worked a double today so I wasn’t able to enjoy the weather HA
I came home for lunch and made a lunch that I had been dreaming about ALL MORNING!
I had Triple Squash Soup from Whole foods with Spinach, goat cheese and cashews on top. With Lavash on the side!
The goat cheese added the PERFECT touch! It added a nice creamy texture to each bite
I finished off my work day and came home to a quick and simple dinner, THAT WASNT CEREAL
I popped a bag of steamfresh veggies in the microwave and cooked up some garlic Israeli couscous on the stovetop
I promise there are some veggies under there
It was perfect and hit the spot.
I did however eat a big hunk of cinnamon raisin crack bread after! I have been having a TERRIBLE problem with craving sweets as soon as i’m done with a meal! I was full after dinner but i just had to sink my teeth into something sweet! This is a new development and I need to see what I might be doing to trigger this…. I haven’t been keeping track of sugar intake or anything so many ive been eating more or less of it, therefore craving??? Not sure!
Post Dinner I got my SWEAT ON!
Here brings up the topic of RUNNING VS. CYCLING. ( I say part one because I would like to follow up with this when I have some more experience with biking, this is just an initial reaction)
Today I rode my bike on my indoor trainer for 45 minutes. I watched the biggest loser while pedaling. During commercial breaks I stepped up the resistance and speed.
I am not sure if I have ever sweat that much … besides the one time i decided to run 4 miles in 100* with 100% humidity HEAT. I know I have a problem… I realize its dangerous and I would never attempt it again!
ANYWAY, I was thinking during this workout that Running rarely makes me sweat when compared to the amount I sweat when Cycling.I sweat BUCKETS when I ride that bike!
HOWEVER, I feel like i get a MUCH better workout when I run?
Im assuming the sweat means i’m really kicking it up, WHICH IS AMAZING, But I like the way my body feels like it just pushed itself whenever Im done with a run.
I have only looked into the calorie burn slightly and they seem somewhat comparable. I need to start using my heart rate monitor more on the bike so I can get a more accurate picture.
What are your thoughts on biking vs. running?!
