Saturday hubby and I rode to Whole Foods. It is about 23 miles away and all freeway. Freeway. Did I mention freeway? Up until this point I haven’t done too many freeways. Well I have now. Not to mention several cloverleaf interchanges. Felt good. Really good. A confidence builder for sure. I’m back on the VStrom!
Back in January I signed up for the Color Run 5K in July and started training on my treadmill. I also started using a BodyMedia Fit arm band to help me hit my target aerobic levels. More recently hubby and I started eating a plant based diet. All of this has resulted in some weight loss as well as feeling great! And then the snow ended and it warmed up so hubby and I took a motorcycle ride. Life is good.
One of the reasons we went to Whole Foods is to get ingredients for Mighty Bean Muffins. I had to try these after reading what Char had to say about them. The batter was tasty and the muffins were too!
Hard to believe this recipe didn’t have eggs or oil. I used black beans and dried cranberries. Tummy-lious!
Back on the VStrom
We spent most of Saturday riding. It was so good to be back riding!
My name is Pam and I am so glad you stopped by today! I started this blog to document my journey into motorcycling and along the way I met so many other lady riders with inspiring stories to tell I began to share theirs as well.
About the same time I started this blog I joined Twitter (@helmetorheels) and began to meet other female motorcycle riders. These ladies were so inspiring to me because I found other newbies like me to life-long experienced riders who were willing to share encouragement, tips, and their friendship. I was welcomed where I was on my journey. What an incredible community I found online to fuel my desire to ride.Catch us on Instagram @helmetorheels and Pinterest @helmetorheels – we are just getting started!
