Scenes from the ride:  Unfortunately there will probably be no more Scenes from the Ride.  Cyclemeter now turns off if I try to turn on my phone’s camera.  Also, the camera doesn’t feel the need to focus anymore prior to taking a picture.  Thanks, iOS7.

I’m not expecting a big loss tomorrow because I’ve been eating these AMAZING Double Stuffed Jalapeno and Garlic Olives today.  Salty salty goodness.  It says on the jar that the olives have been inspected twice for quality.  I don’t think I would want to be an olive inspector.  Sounds a bit dull.

Yesterdays diet:

  • Net calorie intake (after exercise): 1544
  • Protein 35% (164g)
  • Carbs 26% (119g)
  • Fat 39% (80g)

Today’s bike ride:  I don’t know how far or exactly how long I rode because since updating my iPhone to iOS 7 my Cyclemeter app doesn’t work if I start the music app.  It’s a first world problem, I know.  I rode around 26 minutes, so we’ll call it 250 calories.  Probably about 4 miles.

I’m going to keep sharing these pictures from my ride, even if they’re a little dull some (ok, most) days.  Looking for something interesting to share keeps me busy on my ride…and it keeps me looking for the beautiful and unusual in things.

Scenes from the ride:

A spray of wildflower beauty.  I tried to get closer but a bunch of bees appeared out of nowhere and swarmed me.  Ok, it was like 3 bees, but it was really really scary:

Paleo apple pie anyone?  I could use a good recipe.

I went ahead and picked an apple.  The sign told me to.
