Good afternoon! Megan and I went on a glorious bike ride this morning (we both decided weâ€™d rather work in the evening and workout in the morning).
We donâ€™t bike on the sidewalk, we were just taking a breather. We bike in the bike lane!
We had a nice ride. It was a little windy and chilly, but still very pleasant outside. I finished 18.0 miles in 1 hour and 10 minutes. Booyah!
After our workout, I ran some quick errands, including the grocery store. I posted this Operation Beautiful note in a random aisle:

Time for lunch:
A few people have asked how I get my wraps to look so â€œpretty.â€ There is a technique! Here it is:
Start with a good, solid wrap that wonâ€™t rip. This is my favorite brand because itâ€™s not calorie dense (100 calories; Iâ€™d rather fill-up on the nutrient-dense fillings) and doesnâ€™t have any trans fat.
The key is to use some sort of â€œstickyâ€ condiment to hold the wrap together. I usually use melted cheese, hummus, ketchup, or mustard. Also, you want to start on an edge of the wrap, not in the center. I started todayâ€™s wrap with hummus and sprouts.
The hummus was awesome, by the way. It was this wonderful Dill and Cucumber flavor that I found at my grocery store.
Then, add the bulk of your wrap. Be careful not to overstuff! I added grilled zucchini and squash that was marinated in balsamic.
(If you want to fold in the edges, now is the time to do it; I just donâ€™t always do it.) Then, grab the end of the wrap closest to the edge and pull over the insides, tucking along the â€œglue.â€ Tuck it as tightly as possible.
Roll all the way up, flip over so the seam is facing down, and slice down the middle. Re-plate if necessary. 🙂
I also had roasted yellow potatoes and ketchup.
Now that Iâ€™ve spent the morning playing, I need to get to work! I have tons of writing to do.
Are you a wrap or a sandwich kind of person? I must admitâ€¦ I love a good sandwich.
