I had a great breakfast as soon as I got to work because my stomach was grumbling. I had an Odwalla bar, lots of coffee and my daily vitamins. I also ate a banana in the car on the way to work but I am definitely not coordinated enough to drive, eat and take a picture. Breakfast totally hit the spot.
I have a feeling that my workout was strong this morning because of my great dinner last night. I am all over the place with this blog post so let me back up a bit. After work last night, I came home and grabbed a quick snack of an apple and a handful of cereal. Then, I changed in my bike clothes and went for a quick 15 mile ride. It was super windy last night and my legs were not very excited about riding my bike. After a few miles though, my legs stopped hurting and I had a great time riding. When I finally made it back home, I made a quick batch of blackberry muffins, showered, packed my gym bag and lunch and then finally sat down to a delicious dinner. H and I had a quick and easy dinner of veggie burgers and brussel sprouts.
We topped our veggie burgers with some fresh spinach and the best tomato ever. Mel gave us a fresh tomato from her mother-in-law's garden and it was absolutely delicious. I love when people give me veggies from their gardens. Honestly, it is one of my favorite parts of summer. I wish that I was better with plants because I would love to have a garden but honestly, I do not have anything even close to a green thumb. I guess I will just have to keep begging for free stuff from other people's gardens! After dinner H and I relaxed on the couch and had a great protein shake. Our mixture included Vega Smoothie Infusion, cocoa powder, peanut butter, banana, soy milk and ice. It was absolutely delicious and made the perfect dessert. Now that I think about it, maybe it was the protein shake that helped me up the hills this morning.
I have not had a lot of time to watch the Tour De France this week but I have been catching little bits and pieces and it is getting crazy. Today is a time trial which is always exciting. I am hoping that my Astana guys can crush those silly old Schleck brothers once and for all after today. Honestly, where did those sneaky little Schlecks come from anyway? I mean, I was totally expecting Garmin Slipstream to make a move and I would have gladly watched Christian wear the yellow jersey for a stage or two but not the Schlecks! Okay, moving on. I know that most of you guys don't really care about the tour so thanks for hanging in there with me while I vent.
Happy Thursday guys! The weekend is so close I can almost feel myself relaxing! Talk to you soon!
