We hit up PF Changs for lunch today and I ordered Buddha’s Feast, a delicious vegetarian dish full of yummy stir-fried veggies and brown rice! Today and yesterday has been full of outdoor family fun, which means by mealtime I am one starvin’ chick!
We hit up several local metroparks to take care of our hiking fix! We plan to head to Hocking Hills soon, so my mom wanted a chance to test out her shoes. I love the Toledo Metroparks, especially Wildwood Metropark. It is so beautiful and the trails are plentiful and well-maintained. We were one group of many out enjoying the sun!
I can’t wait until pictures like this are GREEN again!
This morning before day two of outdoor family fun I fit in a 15 mile ride down the trail. It was not a positive ride for this girl; my road bike gears wouldn’t shift properly and something kept rattling and driving me crazy. I’m going to take it in for a check-up, but I’m cleaning off my hybrid/cruiser bike in case I need to use it for Bike for Tikes. I used it last year and it worked out fine!
Speaking of Bike for Tikes…I’m finally set on gear! After last year, I knew I wanted a hydration backpack, shoe cages (where toe clips would go!), and a warmer jacket! You can read all about my hydration pack shopping here. I don’t have an updated picture on my shoe cage installation, but I got them for $10 at Dick’s Sporting Goods.
Coleman Revel Hydration Pack (via Target)
Nike Women’s SoftShell Jacket (via Ebay). I wore this yesterday and today and it was WONDERFUL. Perfect insulation, not bulky, and wind resistant!
Reflex 1/4 Zip Pullover (via TJMaxx). I found this while Easter shopping with my fantabulous fiance! What a nice shopping surprise!
I LOVE thumbholes. The sleeves were perfect for my long arms!
I was SOLD when it had a zippered pocket on the back.
What do you look for when purchasing new workout gear?
