Another beautiful day. Yesterday I did some running on the treadmill. Running/jogging is going more and more smoothly. I'm trying to decide whether running is easier on my knees on the treadmill or out on the road. It seems like I am "pounding" a lot on the treadmill, but I am also going considerably faster than when I run at my own pace outside.
Definitely gotta start working on some upper-body strength. I tried to do a "dip" yesterday - lowering and raising yourself with arms from a parallel bar set - I am such a girly-armed wuss lol. Add that to list.
BTW - if anyone is interested in doing a little swap of exercise dvd's, pm me and let me know. I have a couple I have done ad nauseum and would be interested in swapping for someone else's "old news"
Here's a great hi-fiber recipe for you. Do you have your water handy?

1 (15 ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
1 (16 ounce) can vegetarian baked beans
1 (14.5 ounce) can chopped tomatoes in puree
1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained (I rarely use canned corn and just eyeball the right amount of frozen from a large bag I keep on hand.)

1 Tbs chili powder
1 Tbs dried parsley
1 Tbs dried oregano
