The weather was just gorgeous today! Everyone was driving with their windows down. lol. Us Canadians are tough! As soon as it is 7C, everyone is walking around in no jackets and their windows down.
I was really pumped about our first hike of the season!
I put on my trusty HRM to measure my heart rate:
And some creepy gloves:
And we were off!
A delicious Red Delicious as a snack…
My Heart Rate Monitor stats:
Max Heart rate: 117 bpm
Avg Heart rate: 83 bpm
Duration: 1 hour 10 mins.
Feel the burn: 165 kcals
We got back and were famished for lunch! I needed something very quick and easy. I was craving tons of veggies so I went with my old stand by- Sautéed Spinach (About 5 handfuls raw) and 1 whole tomato:
And 1/2 an avocado:
Dessert was a juicy kiwi:
I also had 1/3 of a Larabar.
Since I have been on my no-sugar kick, I have cut my Larabar consumption by about 95%!! I have only had 1 + 1/2 larabars in the past 2 weeks or more. Amazing!
I was eating about 1 a day (sometimes 2!) for a long time.
I was not planning on going to the gym since we had such a wonderful hike today, but I figured since tomorrow is the photoshoot, I should squeeze in as much exercise as I can!
I told myself I only had to do 20 mins. on the step mill. That worked :) I was in and out of the gym in under 25 mins flat! Love that.
- 20 mins on step mill
- Speed: 11
- Max heart rate: 167 bpm
- Avg Heart rate: 157 bpm
- Feel the burn: 181 kcals
I will admit- this was a HARD 20 mins. Every minute was tough, but nothing beats such a fast workout!
Well guys, I gotta run!
I need to go finish prepping for tomorrow. Pack our bags, cut Eric’s hair, get my dress, jewelry, and veils in order, etc!!
I probably won’t be posting again until tomorrow night as the shoot goes from 10-5:30pm. I can’t wait to report back on how it went and hopefully have some shots to show you! :) I am nervous but trying to remain calm! I hope that all my hard work the past 2 weeks has paid off and the dress FITS!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! :)
