Is That….Sunshine?

I was able to walk during lunch, which made me happy! The weather was actually starting to warm up nicely and I wish I’d had sunglasses. I’m really enjoying my walks in The Pearl District. I’ve seen lots of things I’ve never seen in the 11 years I’ve lived in Portland.

When I was walking I stumbled upon a lonely puppy! He perked up the second I started taking photos of him. 🙂

Pearl puppy!

And the last Pearl District photo from today:

I like my lunchtime walks on “Rest Days.” I choose a different route to take downtown and explore areas of the city I never see.

When I got home from work, I had a quick snack of Wheat Thins and some Cream Cheese (1/3 less fat version) and then hopped on the bike trainer for 45 minutes or so.


After doing intervals, I got off the bike and did some ab exercises with my ball:

I was really feeling the burn! Next, I did some triceps exercise:

And the result:

439 Calories Burned

Now to find something for dinner……..The never-ending question…..

  1. you are so lucky to be able to live in such a beautiful area! Id love to be able to explore a city like that!

  2. I love Portland. A very good friend of mine lives there and the second time I went to visit her, we had a whole week of sunshine! I’d like to get back out that way soon. It’s been too long. I’m on the other coast (NY) where we are being blessed with “summer in April” this week. It’s so awesome!
    And hey, we have something else in common. I also do my ab workouts with a yoga ball and medicine ball! It’s the best!!
