Rain Doesn't Mean Bad Day

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

Yes I know that it is spring and it is suppose to rain, but waking up this morning and seeing MORE rain made me just want to say Go away! It has been a weird spring here in northern michigan. Between the snow and rain it has been extra wet and of course darn cold!
I had big plans for this morning. I wanted to go for a bike ride with my boyfriend and just enjoy being outdoors. But since there was rain decided to get some things done around the house and just mess around. Finally I decided we were either going to go for a bike ride and chance it in the rain or we were go to go up to the college and go work out in the gym there. Well, he said that he wanted to chance it outside, (he isn't much of a gym person).
So we get all geared up to go for our bike ride; warm clothes, biking gloves, of course water and don't forget the most important- the super expensive bikes! We start off on our ride and it started windy but very shortly it started to get slightly warmer and the sun came up. I decided I wanted to stop at the park and he couldn't figure it out, told him we gotta be kids now and then! Enjoyed the park and only got hurt once!
We ended up biking 6 miles. By the time we got to the last mile we were stripping because it was so warm and wasn't a cloud in sight! Big change from earlier! But we definitely enjoyed it.

Here are some pics;

My boyfriend (Ron) and I decided to do a challenge four ourselves and lose 5% of our body weight. He needs to lose 9 lbs and I need to lose 9.5 lbs. So I decided to make a nice healthy dinner for us. And after having the McWrap at McDonalds last night I decided that I wanted to make my own version of it and see if he liked it and to see if by making it my way if it would have a lower calorie amount.. and it did! Also, it was amazingly good.Yum! Can't wait to do it again, and now, we also have a bit more fresh veggies in the house!
