Oh Yeah...Thats what exercise feels like

Exercise:
Despite the busy day I finally did what I have been saying I should do for weeks. I got on the treadmill for 20 minutes and walked and jogged with my phone on Pandora (wonderful invention by the way!). I put in a Maroon 5 mix and walked and ran to a selection of Maroon-5, John Mayer, The Rolling Stones, Coldplay and Jimmy Hendricks. I quickly covered a couple of miles and then stopped for dinner. I then talked to my older daughters for a bit (as they descended on the house to visit) and then returned to the treadmill to d 10 more minutes after dinner.

crazily enough-it was fun
It didn't hurt that much
The music via headphones was great
Because no one is in my garage with me I could sing at the top of my lungs as only one can do when one is alone and wearing headphones (completely off key and loud!) :)

wahooooo...

Dinner:

David finally produced a dinner for all of us that was delicious and low in simple refined carbs. He made quinoa risotto (remember from the Peruvian restaurant)
He cooked the quinoa in home-made chicken broth, stirred in bacon and parm. cheese and steamed broccoli. It was very good and high in protein.

xxxooo

I love the feeling when exercise feels natural, enjoyable and part of my routine...I love quinoa and I am going to try the recipe myself...quinoa is like a chameleon...it takes on fragrances and flavors quite easily and can taste delicious in a lot of ways. Thank you for sharing.

I really love the idea of quinoa, but haven't mastered the subtleties of making a tasty dish with it. Your husband's dish sound delicious!

I wish I could listen to music on my hikes but I am afraid I won't hear the bear or mountain lion coming!
WTG! on the workout. The dinner sounds yummy!

Great job with the exercise! Soon the sun will come back and you might hit the road on your bike once again. If we don't mold first.
