Monday: Pedals and Paint Chips
My feet were hurting from both my 10 miler on Friday and from the hiking (picture of the view on our hike) we did on Sunday. So I headed out on the bike this morning. I really felt confident for the first time on my bike. I don’t know if it is just spending more time on the bike, or the core work I have been doing, but I felt pretty good.
Bike: 10 miles / 48:20
Meals today were stuck in a rut. Protein bar for breakfast, egg beaters with turkey sausage, an english muffin and salsa. There were some carrots and a peach. Dinner was a ribeye with sweet potato fries and a little ranch dressing for dipping. Another peach for dessert. Have I mentioned how AMAZING the peaches from Costco have been?
I don’t consider myself an especially creative person. But I copy like a mother-f…. Which is why all of my recipes come from somewhere else. Anyone that reads this blog knows that I LOVE calendars and have no less than 4 going at a time (including phones, computers, training logs, etc.) So when I saw the paint chip calendar project on Pinterest, I knew I could do it and thought it would be a quick project (I have attention span issues. See: unfinished knitting projects) and that I could have fun with the colors.
The hardest part really (and it wasn’t very hard) was figuring out the dimensions of each block. Then you just cut them all to the same size and stick them on a piece of posterboard! I didn’t get to crazy with making sure the spacing was exact. A craft project should have some element of “homemade” to it. I am really pleased with the results. You use dry erase markers and just go to calendaring town!
