It's been storming here heavily, so no bike today. Hope everyone in the midwest is safe and with power this a.m. I did get a littl exercise this morning hopping over the little worms that managed to crawl in under my front door to escape the deluge.
The plan is to run this evening. Am noticing some benefits from the ab work I've been putting in. It's always nice to see a little tone peeking out!
Edited to add quote and recipe...
"The only true happiness comes from squandering ourselves for a purpose."
William Cowper (1731 - 1800)
What is your life purpose? Are you reaching your full potential? What can you do differently to make that happen?
