wanna’ go for a ride?

A mid day adventure.

Time to grab my bike.

It’s totally secure in there.  I swear.

Our shed is so neat + tidy.  Cooler….filing cabinet…kayak…you know, the usual.

I bought this single-speed bike on craiglist, last year, for $100.  I love it for bopping around town and riding to the gym.  The best thing about it are the awesome stickers, put on by the previous owners.

It was in the low 50’s this morning, so I had a few layers on.  The wind gusts were a little scary, but I made my way to the gym.

First, I was held up by a train…

Today I did a mix of legs + upper body.  Feel the burn!  Then, I did an HIIT workout on the best cardio machine ever, for 20min.  I absolutely love HIIT workouts because they are quick and torturous.  Yes, I like to be tortured at the gym.

I went right around lunch time, silly me, so before leaving for the gym I had a date + peanut butter + apple snack.  After my workout I packed some protein powder [Vega Tropical shake n’ go – from HLS swag] + maca powder

I mixed it with about 20oz of water + chugged it down.

I really enjoyed it.

That is a lie.

My favorite locker room feature, is this awesome locking device!!  No need to bring a lock, or wonder if all your things are getting stolen while you’re pumpkin pumping iron.

You just set, lock + go!

Bye bye gym!  This is a HUGE gym by the way, with basketball courts, an indoor track, and a huge rock climbing + bouldering area.  Love it!

Then, if my quads weren’t already on fire, I had to trek over to Home Depot.  Obviously.

The walls all have a light texture to them [from previous owners], so I had to buy some spray texture to go over the new drywall around the closet.  I would prefer a smooth wall, but we’re not about to start scraping down the walls!

Then I made my way through town…

…to stop at the local food co-op.  How adorable is this?  The inside is ever better!!

Had to the get essentials…

  • tea ball [mine broke]
  • coconut [out of coconut butter]
  • brown rice tortillas [tortilla pizza!!]
  • delicious local tempeh
  • cheese cloth [because I can never find it and want to make my own almond milk]

Random, to say the least!

Now I’m back home, hobbling around with super sore quads.  Time to texture the closet, do a little painting and then a little furniture building.

Hope you enjoyed the ride!
