so sore

I never thought I would be this sore today!  And, I don’t really have an appetite at all…maybe because of the soreness?  I think I am still just really shaken up.

Therefore, my eats today have included tea, toast with almond butter, yogurt and dried fruit.  Exciting, right?!

Dried cantaloupe, kiwi, strawberry, raspberry, pineapple and lychee.  The cantaloupe and kiwi are sweetened with natural cane sugar.  Normally, I stay away from dried fruit with sugar, however, sometimes I go for it as a treat.  And, on a day like today, my body wanted some sugar. 🙂

I started to get hungry around dinner time, though, so we made up a few BIG Greek salads!  Yummy.

Brant chopped up some romaine to make it more of a chopped Greek salad.

And, served it with diced tomato, orange pepper, cucumber, avocado and feta cheese.

Drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with oregano and a little sea salt and pepper.

This was a huge and totally delicious salad that got lots of veggies into my body after lacking them all day long!

With some homemade pita chips on the side.

I spread a whole wheat lavash with a little butter, Parmesan cheese and Herbs De Provence.  Then toasted it until browned.

Another great simple dinner.  This is perfect for a warm evening because there is no cooking involved, just chopping and munching!

Time to relax my poor body!!


car hits bike

Yesterday was another gorgeous day, so we decided to head out to the Minuteman trail for a good bike ride.

For my fuel, I made up a big smoothie to take with me.

This needed to fuel me through 22 miles of cycling, so I went heavy on the mix-ins:

  • 1 frozen banana
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • 1 cup frozen spinach
  • 3 tbsp hemp protein powder
  • 1 tsp maca
  • 2 tbsp cacao
  • 1 scoop chocolate amazing grass
  • 1 cup plain Stonyfield yogurt
  • 1 cup water

It was good and filling!  Just what I wanted.

We took Benny for our last walk…he headed to his grandparents today for the week. 🙂

I think he’ll miss us!

Then, we headed out to bike.  As usual, it was a gorgeous ride through Arlington, Lexington and Bedford.  But…it was cut a little short due to my run in with a car…

YUP!  I got hit by a car?!?!?!  But, I am okay!  The driver was stopped at a stop sign, but apparently started going as I was crossing the street.  Luckily, the car was going slowly.  When he hit me, I smashed onto the ground, but didn’t go flying or anything.  And, I walked away with some scrapes, bumps, bruises…

…and, some dented handlebars.

I think the car had more damage than my bike or I did.  Phew!

The scariest part was seeing the whole thing happen.  I slowed down before I crossed the street and the car was stopped waiting for other bikers to pass!  But, somehow he missed seeing me!  Bummer.  Luckily, I am ok!  And, was able to ride the 5 miles back to our car.

After we made it to the car, I was starving from the whole ordeal.  I snacked on a Raw Granola Bar that I had picked up at One Lucky Duck in NYC.

Honey Bunches Barorganic almonds, organic oats, organic buckwheat, organic blueberries, organic nutmeg, organic vanilla extract, organic raw honey, Himalayan crystal salt.

This was hands-down one of the best granola bars I have ever had!  Crunchy with just a hint of sweetness.  I loved the blueberries.

Then, we made a stop at Wilson Farm in Lexington where I stated feeling the soreness kick in.

We picked up lots of delicious produce including corn, broccoli, romaine, peppers, tomatoes, green beans, apples, mangoes and fiddleheads!  Can’t wait for some more exciting meals this week.

I am feeling very sore this morning, but am just so relieved that I didn’t end up with any broken bones!  What a Sunday.
