Workout Results 3/31 -

Today was FUN! I had a good workout this morning at the gym. I did my ST workout followed by a short, slow 1/2 mile run. Then I ran some errands, then came back for a ride on my new bike! I rode slower today because I am still getting used to riding and changing gears etc, but that was ok with me as today was all about having fun and getting outside on those beautiful trails! Anyone who knows of The Woodlands which is where we live, knows just how many amazing trees and trails we have here. It was fun riding on the trails. It was a very different feeling than when I run on those same trails as I assure you at no point have I ever ZOOMED past all the trees! LOL! Now, I was super excited about my first day out on my bike, however I have not charged my Garmin in so long so the battery went out during my ride. I am charging it now so I will be good to go for tomorrows ride. But I did manage to record part of my ride, therefore I am estimating my caloric burn as well as time and distance because my watch stopped.

During my errands today I stopped by Sams and much to my surprise there was a Vita-mix demonstration going on...WOW! That machine is amazing!! I was thinking about getting one and after seeing it first hand, I was sold! I bought one! So tonight I am looking forward to fixing a yummy, healthy shake and maybe some soup for dinner! I am off to plant a few flowers and get some veggies at the store for my new super duper blender! WOO HOO!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful, successful day! REACH HIGH!

I agree with Erin.

I love your new bike. Very cool.

Please let me know what you think about your new VitaMix blender. It was on display at our Sams about a month ago. I really want one but it is soooo expensive. But if it is worth it.....???

The bike ride sounds wonderful - Do you have many hills to ride?
