We had some work stuff to take care of in the morning and then spent the rest of the afternoon down at Mission Bay, riding our bikes and having a picnic. It was so nice!
Breakfast was a Vitatop, apple crumb flavored with 4oz of Fage Total 0% Greek yogurt mixed with PB2 and drizzled with Walden Farms 0 calorie pancake syrup.
We rode our bikes along the bike path for 7 or 8 miles and then stopped, spread our picnic blanket on the grass near the jetty and had a picnic lunch I had packed. We are getting this whole bike ride/picnic thing down to an art. Maybe I should write a post about our picnic stuff and how we have learned to carry it all in the baskets of our bikes!
Now I wish I would have taken photos of our bike ride and picnic...note to self...take more photos! I snapped this photo so I could have it in my phone the next time Vern asks me, "Do you remember which bike I put on the car first?" I can never remember!
Anyway, lunch was a sandwich on a multigrain sandwich thin spread with a wedge of laughing cow swiss cheese spread, with Turkey breast lunch meat, lettuce, tomato, and a tiny smear of mustard (I like just a touch...I hate too much mustard!)
I had some baby cut carrots, and a half of a pink lady apple as well.
I wanted a little something more after lunch so I had some pretzels
Dinner was a chicken quesadilla. A 100 calorie tortilla spread with 1/2 cup leftover black beans, 3 oz diced, baked chicken breast, 2 oz fat free cheese, and pico de gallo. This was so good and really hit the spot as I was hungry after our long bike ride!
This photo taken after I ate some of my quesadilla shows what was in it a little bit better.
Of course there was popcorn after dinner....it's becoming sort of a habit...LOL.
I don't know how we managed to do it but we found ourselves riding against the wind BOTH ways! I am always amazed at how much harder it is to ride against the wind. It feels something like I imagine riding in mud would feel like. By the time we finished our 14-15 mile ride my legs were like rubber! The activity tracker said it was a six point ride but that seems awfully high to me so I gave myslef 4 activity points.
