How to enjoy the day

It's another gorgeous day, if only it could last for another few months. I'm sure the long months of rain are coming. That is why I must get out and enjoy it. I had planned on going to the gym after work. But with such beautiful weather I knew I could get a great workout outside, so why not enjoy the day.

First I got home and changed into my workout clothes while I had the big debate of whether to run or bike. I headed down to the river to check out the happenings. We live on a river but I don't go down there very much, kinda buggy at times.

I originally went down to check on my apple tree's. We have three of them that are basically organic since we don't give them any care. Unfortunately I was probably a few weeks to a month too late, the deer ate them. Everything is a battle with deer around here.

I soaked in some of the sun and made my decision to run with some possible biking afterwords. My shoulder is pretty soar from my bike fall yesterday and I just felt more like running. I embarked on a 5 mile run. By the time I got back to my house I was pooped and there was no way I could hop on my bike. I also had planned on doing some abs and legs afterwords. I finished my run, completed my abs and leg workout, and did some stretching.

I apologize for having another night of a plethora of roasted veggies. But I'm going to be gone this weekend and I must eat these veggies before they go bad. The best way to use up a bunch of veggies is to roast them up.

I cut up some carrots, sweet potatoes, one red potato, tomatoes, and a can of chickpeas, all seasoned and roasted for 1hr. at 325 degrees. Served with an egg and egg white along with some Parmesano reggiano.

For whatever reason I wouldn't say this was the tastiest meal.  But it did accomplish it's mission of using a bunch of veggies and supplying a good source of nutrients. 


  1. Your river looks beautiful. You must have a great house.

  2. Sorry about your accident. Running might be safer than bike rider.
