Today the oaks leaves were iced at the tips.
Yesterday, I tried a new recipe for French bread. They came out great! Don't you think? I had just two pieces and tracked my cals.
Many of you know Maren who blogs about her weight loss journey from beautiful Norway. Last week she posted about this cool little app called Endomondo. I was sold immediately when I foldout that it tracks many sports, not just walking, but get this, stair climbing, cycling (sport and mountain!), walking, cross country skiing and many, many others. The download for the “pro” version was $3.99, a bargain. It really is a dandy. It tracks your exercise distance, duration, calories burned and with GPS plots your course and produces these cool little maps of your route and calendar.
I had a great week last week! Tracked my calories and exercised well. Our weather was warm for Minnesota, which allowed me to get in TWO bike rides outside for a total of 12 miles. I did another nine on my trainer. I am getting better at keeping a steady pace on my trainer, clocking in two 30-minute rides. I cross-country skied 6 miles and walked 6, too! I know I will shed that extra couple of pounds I picked up during my three week hiatus in quick order with week's like the one just past.
Now, I am back to reality. Sabbatical is over. Back to academic life for me on Monday.
Look forward to checking in with all of you, too. As always, thanks for stopping by and sharing part of your day with me. Have a great week and stay strong! TTFN, Michele
