Saturday August 14, 2010...

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'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.

I've been missing your food porn. I so wish we lived closer together... you could cook for me. Love love the food pics.

I can never remember where we park when we go somewhere like Disney... so I always take a photo of the row we are on... sorta like you and the bike photo.

Thanks for coming by and seeing my blog. I've missed you (here and there). Trying to get better. :)

Wow, what an ideal day. Your breakfast looks absolutely decadent and the bike riding and picnic. What a wonderful way to spend a day.

Question - is your cat trying to get in on the popcorn snack? I had a cat that used to like popcorn. :-)

Is that breakfast very filling? It looks yummy just wondered how filling it is.

Have you had the smart One Chicken quesadilla? They look a lot like the one you made.

6 points of that popcorn? How many cups is it? Maybe I haven't been calculating mine right.

Kiddo on the bike ride. It makes me jealous to know you were at my favorite place. LOVE Mission Bay and Mission Beach. love ya.

Grace...I've been missing you too! I was glad to see you blogging again1 I do the same thing to remember my parking spot!

Just me...HaHa...yes, that's Agnes and she is trying to get the popcorn. She doesn't really like to eat it she just likes to play with it and she took the opportunity while my hands were busy to try and get into it!

Lesia...amazingly, that breakfast is really filling. I think because it's a vitatop and vitatops have so much fiber. I haven't tried the Smart One Chicken Quesadilla yet. Is it good? The popcorn was six points because I put some olive oil on it. Hugs...
