20 Activity points in one day!!!!

I was just on the site tracking my food and activity for the day and I earned 20 AP today! DH and I decided to do some hiking today since the weather on Vancouver Island has been so lovely. We decided to tackle a hike that I have not done in about 12 years - It is straight up the mountain behind my in laws house. There is a beautiful lake up there that can not be accessed by roads. We set out with our dog, some trail mix and bottles of water. About half an hour in there began to be a lot of snow on the ground - the higher we got the more snow there was (I know, I should have been a geographer!). It made for an extra tough hike - but some stunning scenery. This picture doesn't do it justice but this is taken at the top - it took about two hours to climb up from the bottom. The next picture is of me at the frozen lake - I think my new LuLu Lemon pants make my legs look almost slim!

So after we hiked back down, we had lunch with my in laws and then headed home. I promised one of the girls from work I would go to water aerobics with her tonight. I went a half hour early so I could get in some lengths since I have not been to the pool in awhile. So, between the hike, the swimming and the water aerobics I earned 20ap! I ate four of them in trail mix... well worth it!

In other news, I made a great dinner last night. Doesn't this look like a plate of mashed potatos, fries and steak?

It is a lean pork chop - grilled, baked sweet potato fries and mashed fauxtatoes (ESBM recipe). It was so delicious and about half the points of its inspiration meal. For dessert I made an angel food cake ices with a combo of fat free pudding and 95% fat free cool whip. This big slice only 3 points.

This has been a pretty good week. Some good work outs and I stayed within my points. I hope my hard work shows at WI tomorrow.

Mmm I think I need to make angel food cake again, it's been a long time!

I'm envious of your hike. Hard to believe there is still so much snow up there when it's been so beautiful down here.

Yeah for you on all those APs! Sounds like you are a ball of energy, girl. So fun, too.

Your recipes sound delish! And look amazing for that matter. I think of you whenever I make a ED&BM recipe. :)
