To Clearwater Boat Ramp 15Jun2022

Working on my distance instead of hills, I decided to bike out to Springfield. It has been raining… STILL. It wasn’t raining on this day (yet), so it was a good day to ride. Crossing one of the bridges near the University of Oregon, I noticed how full the rivers are. This water is usuallyContinue reading “To Clearwater Boat Ramp 15Jun2022”

Dorena Dam Rail Trail 13Jun2022

Christine and I put on our helmets once again to hit the path. This time, we headed down to Cottage Grove, where they have a great path. I believe this used to be a train track and was converted to a bike path (rails to trails)? I want to look at this more, because IContinue reading “Dorena Dam Rail Trail 13Jun2022”

Drift Creek Falls Trail #1378 20May2022

A few work friends wanted to go hiking with me, and I got to pick the venue. I decided on a trail that’s not too long or difficult, but with good bang for the buck. This is one I’ve wanted to do for a little while. On the day of the hike, it ended upContinue reading “Drift Creek Falls Trail #1378 20May2022”

Italian Cauliflower Bake

I’m making lunches for work tomorrow. I guess the buzz phrase is “meal prepping.” I have found if I don’t plan ahead and bring food, I’m likely to eat things that aren’t on my diet. Shocking! I work 12-hour shifts plus intermittent fasting, so I need two meals. My lunch is usually easy to get,Continue reading “Italian Cauliflower Bake”

Bunless burgers

I’ve been working with my doctor on my weight loss, and I asked her which diet was best. I’m at the point where I know what has worked for me in the past, and I know what I enjoy, but nothing seems to work anymore. I’ve tried calorie restriction, low carb, primal/paleo, Noom, Weight Watchers,Continue reading “Bunless burgers”

My Whoop & Me

I got a Whoop.  That sounds a little… naughty, doesn’t it?  A Whoop is a new activity tracker.  I’ve used my Apple watch for the last couple of years, but I don’t think it’s as accurate as I’d like, and the battery runs out fast.  I do love that I get texts on it… 🙂Continue reading “My Whoop & Me”

Day One

I ate pretty well today.  Breakfast was an egg and a sausage patty.  Lunch was an avocado (and a half) with plantain chips and sweet potato chips… with a string cheese.  Then dinner was chicken cordon bleu “pasta” with spaghetti squash.  The bad:  wine with my dinner.  I allow that on the weekends, but IContinue reading “Day One”
