Today was quite the day! An afternoon at the pool (preston is SO close to being able to swim) and then a trip to the gym – burned 810 calories Now I’m fed, showered, Pres is in bed, and I’m watching TV, life is good! I was actually thinking today I am starting to really transition into the “i actually like exercising” part of this journey. My body is responding well to being pushed some but not so hard I’m having any pain or anything. I did two bike rides over the weekend. First was with my sister, Meredith, she was in town for a brief visit. We biked 7.64 miles on Saturday. On Sunday I went riding with my dad for about 6.2 miles. Both rides felt good and are getting me closer to my June goal of 10 miles!
So after weighing in yesterday and being excited about the loss and doing my 6 mile ride I decided that dessert for lunch was totally AOK! I had been eyeing these mini graham cracker pie crusts I bought FOREVER ago. So I busted them out and was thinking something chocolate peanut buttery. I was going to use PB2 to make the peanut butter part but I thought since I could use the calories I’d use a TBSP of Skippy. Then I took half a cup of Jello Chocolate Pudding to top it off!
Look at that!! And it was DE-LI-CIOUS! The pie crust was 110 calories, peanut butter was 95 calories and half the cup of pudding was 30. So that’s 235 calories for a delicious little treat. I paired it with almonds and called it lunch because the day was kind of weird in terms of timing of eating and like I said I wanted dessert for lunch I was thinking adding a little marshmallow fluff or something would make for a fun s’more type dessert. Here’s another picture so you can see how big this thing is…
So its not super huge but with real peanut butter and some chocolate goodness it was pretty savory. So that’s my Monday. How was your weekend? How was the start to your week? Any good desserts this weekend??
