Tone Up and Burn Fat Workout

Hi Everyone!

This is today's workout. In addition to this workout Jesse and I ran 7 miles today. We kept it at a comfortable talking pace, and it took us 1 hour and 1 minute. There were tons of hills on our route.   It felt wonderful to be running outside. I am so glad that it's warming up again. Sunshine brightens my day in so many ways. 

Today I want to take a moment to give special thanks to my Mom. It's her birthday. She is the one who started me out on the path to living a healthy lifestyle. She made sure my sisters and I were active. I have barely any memories of watching TV as a child. It wasn't forbidden, it just seemed that there was always something more exciting to do. I also grew up eating a wide range of healthy foods. Again, it wasn't that I wasn't allowed to have sweets, but my mom always said that fruit was God's candy. So I have always thought of fruit as a sweet treat. 

I wish my mother a very wonderful birthday, and an even better year.

For everyone else, I will see you tomorrow with another new workout!
