Workout Results 4/14-

Todays workout started off not very well. This morning I went for a 4 mile walk/run and my shin started to bother me once again. I walked more than running this morning but I covered the distance and did my best despite the pain. I came home and went out for a very nice 10 mile bike ride. It was a slower ride, but a gorgeous one! I took some time to ride pass some neighborhoods to look at some houses and their landscaping to get some ideas. I know that I could have pushed it harder this morning but I have to say I enjoyed being out there burning calories and having fun on this beautiful day.

I am now icing my shin and if feels better. I have to stay positive and know that all my hard work WILL pay off! I just have to get pass these aches and pains. I am enjoying every second of this journey, even the difficult moments! Pressing on another day.....

We are going out to dinner tonight with friends so I have pre-logged my dinner so I stay on track! We are going to the Macaroni Grill, so I will be having the skinny chicken and NO bread! Their bread is EVIL!!! I will be good, I promise!

Have a blessed day! Reach high!!

Great job, Jen!

And Macaroni Grill's bread IS totally evil. :) I have no doubt you can beat it, though!

Oh Erin, I know it is the BEST bread! BUT, I shall overcome the temptation! There is no telling the calories that are in just one piece of that stuff.

Thanks for the support!

Good for you. How do you know how to calculate the calories. It seems pretty difficult...

Wonderful Day Jen! It use to take me 45 minutes to go 10 miles on my bike last year. Is that good?!! I am going to work on that this year. You have inspired me to just "bite the bullet' and get back on that bike. It just gets so darn boring in my parts - flat lands and CORN FIELDS! ;-) maybe I will strap a radio to my bike or something?!!

I love how you are just being you and LOVING life. THIS IS HEALTHY LIVING! ((HUGS))
