Hello, friends! I hope you had a fun-filled Father’s Day! It was a busy day here, and I’ll keep it short and sweet with lots of pictures.
Sunday means Cycle 60 at the YMCA, and unfortunately, Ron wasn’t there. Brian led this morning’s class through a 12-minute cycle that we repeated four times: five minutes of climbing, five minutes of rolling hills, and two minutes of tempo/sprints. Taking a spin class—or any group fitness class—with a different instructor usually makes for a fresh workout, which challenges your body, and boy, I sure felt every climb, hill, and sprint we did today. Ron is still my favorite, though.
Cycle 60 signals the return of the best breakfast ever.
Don’t let this innocent-looking PB jar fool you.
Chobani yogurt, Kashi oatmeal, almond mild, and chia seeds.
Father’s Day Presents
Around noon, my dad opened his pile of presents. Three cheers for books, shirts, and a grilling basket!
I started off today’s midday meal with some carrot sticks and hummus.
While I snacked, I made a rice and beans quesadilla.
Messy, but satisfying.
I had a few pieces of super ripe cantaloupe for dessert.
My extended family came over to celebrate Father’s Day, and we nibbled on some hors d’oeuvres before sitting down for dinner. (Picture taken on my soon-to-be-dead BlackBerry; sorry for the poor quality.)
Salad, grilled chicken, roasted veggies, and salt potatoes for dinner.
Margaret made another Magnolia Bakery masterpiece: lemon layer cake with lemon buttercream frosting.
It was simply incredible.
See ya tomorrow!
