Back in the Saddle, again!
Tuesday, July 24, 2007
Went out for a bike ride this morning, 7.63 miles in already hot and humid conditions. I have never sweated like that during a bike ride before. I couldn't get the sweat to stop dripping off my face. The temperature hit 38 yesterday, with a humidex of 47. Thank goodness we have air conditioning. Needless to say, I never went out last night for my walk, but had long island ice teas with my neighbour instead.
Those 2.6 pounds that I brought back from holidays? Well, 2.2 of them were gone already this morning. I figured it wouldn't hang around long. I always tend to gain weight (water) while away from home.
Last night, I had fresh potatoes, beets, peas and lettuce from my garden again, with enough lettuce left over for my noon salad today. I just love this time of year, when I can eat straight from picking. All the nutrients are still RIGHT THERE! And the taste of fresh produce just can't be beat.
I'm a little dissapointed that my sunflowers aren't blooming yet. I can see the heads wanting to come out, so hopefully they will be vey soon.
