Happy Easter everyone! And for those who don’t celebrate Easter-Happy Passover. And for those who don’t celebrate either-Happy Sunday!
Another gorgeous day in Charlotte. I woke up a little late and wanted to go for a run/walk but needed some food in my system ASAP. I decided on rolled oats.
Cooking in almond milk, water with apple spice seasoning.
But sometimes beautiful things turn into a hot mess.
A hot mess of goodness!!! Sorry things took a turn for the worse for you, Lindsay.
This consisted of one banana, two tbsps unsweetened coconut and mini morsels and two tbsps of Crazy Richard’s Peanut Butter. I previously said, that this bowl was the best I have but the breakfast today trumped this!
I chugged a bunch of water and brought a bottle along with me and was off to the greenway. It was so sunny and not too many people on there. I walk.ran but when I ran my heart rate was going out of control. I am talking 200+ plus my lungs weren’t wanting to cooperate with me. I speed walked most of the way but ended my session on my heart rate monitor after 1.5 miles when I stopped to get some more water and use the restroom. 447 calories ?? Nice!
There were also so many dogs on the greenway and I call dogs babies–I kept saying aloud “Look at all the beautiful babies here” like in Swingers. I am sure Amy will appreciate that.
I walked pretty much the rest of the way back besides a few minutes of running. I just couldn’t do it and figured walking is better than nothing (and I had to get home somehow). I got home and checked my heart rate monitor yet again and this is the beauty I saw:
So my question is, is it really possible that within an hour I burned almost 900 calories from primarily walking with a bit of running threw in there? That just doesn’t seem possible and I’ve never burned that many before even when I did more running.
Oh….and Lincoln likes to attack my face when I get back because I am all sweaty. Little dirty dog!!
I had a 32 oz bottle of water and handful of Peter
JK I had a handful of cashews
I started to prepare my dinner in the crockpot. Ribs were on sale and I haven’t had some good ribs in forever so on we go!
I lined the crockpit with the marinade-John Boy and Billy’s Grilling Sauce
I browned the ribs before placing them in the crock
And placed in the crockpot on low to cook. Whoever created the crockpot, I love you.
Hello fat babies. I cannot wait to eat you.
For lunch, I made deviled eggs….a first for me. I followed this recipe from Cooking Light
I spent some time on the patio reading and Lincoln was wanting in on the action as well.
Hope everyone’s day is going great thus far!!
