11 days and counting!

Monday Motivation...

"What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are." Tony Robbins

I had a great workout today. I am enjoying my new bike! I think it will be good for my knee and it adds more variety to my routine. My thighs are feeling my ride today! I did 10 kms and I worked in some hill/resistance work during the workout. The combination of elliptical, bike and treadmill worked well for me.

We are leaving in 11 days for a trip to London and Paris to celebrate 9 years of marriage! I need to work hard and stay on course so that I can enjoy myself on our trip, well within reason! I need to still watch how many cappuccinos and croissants I have, they add up! Hope everyone has a wonderful start to the month! Only 30 days left in 2008! Make each day count!

Yum! You say my meals look good, but I have to say, I'm getting mighty hungry looking at your daily menu. So much variety! Congrats on 9 years. April will mark 8 years for hubby and me. It goes fast doesn't it?
