2. Calories: I was very consistent with my calories this week. Coming in at 1500 on average, except for my long ride yesterday.
3.Exercise: I biked 99 miles last week. Besides my 40, all my other rides were over 20 miles which was exactly my goal for last week. For the next 4 weeks, each ride will be about 20 miles as I continue to ramp up my miles for the Venus de Miles on August 26. I did get in three days of core workout, too.
Rochelle challenged us to go meatless last week. I do not eat much meat for a number of health and ethical reasons, so this was not too hard for me. I did have fish, dairy and eggs. We have found a wonderful smoked salmon (1 cup is less than 70 calories) that has become one of our salad toppings. With summer fruits in abundance, we also add strawberries or blue berries to that salad, too. Today I made omelets featuring a cup of chopped green peppers, onions, and garlic. Delicious.
What’s on tap for me this week? I intend to complete my core-strengthening workout 4 times, plus do some stairs. I hope to get in another 3-4 twenty mile rides, but also a longer one of about 40 or more miles. I also plan to stay within 1500 calories each and every day.
Thanks for reading. Thanks for your comments on my blog. Have a great week, TTFN, Michele
