Today is April 14, 2013. I thought for sure I would have been out on my motorcycle by now! I couldn’t have been more wrong. Spring is no where to be found here in Minnesota. We’ve had snow, followed by more snow, and then snow. Today we had a little remix of snow, ice, and rain. Make it stop!!
Enough whining. So, what have I been up to? Well I’m still working on training for The Color Run 5K in July. I did a preset workout on my treadmill today called the Maui 5K. It varies the incline to be similar to the actual three mile course in Hawaii [wish I were in Hawaii] and I’ll continue training indoor until the weather cooperates. I worked out listening to Classic Rock on Pandora. It is a nice way to keep a pace steady. Anyone else run to a Pandora station? Suggestions are welcome.
Another change that hubby and I have made is to our diet after watching Forks over Knives documentary. There are a couple of health issues hubby has wrestled with and we are not a fan of popping pills so dietary changes seem like a good course to try. We picked up the book The Engine 2 Diet to follow the 28 day meal plans based on a plant strong diet. We are two weeks in and liking it!
Here are a couple of meals we’ve had lately.
This is quite a bit of a change from our previous lean meat and dairy diet and takes some planning. Hubby made me a chalkboard for the kitchen. Love it!!
I’ve been really encouraged by Trobairtiz‘s other blog Trobairitz Table d’hote | A Motorcyclist’s Adventures with Vegan Cuisine. Great resource for more recipes. Yay!
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.
