My body is loving me

I am feeling really well at the moment. Over the past few days I have gotten in a lot of exercise, fresh air and have eaten very well. My body is loving me for treating it so well!


My exercise had been varied :

Thursday : got up before work to do a 25 minute Jillian Michaels DVD

Friday : 45 minute aqaugym class

Saturday : 10K with intervals

Sunday : 25 minute Jillian DVD + 45 minute power walk (had to once again take advantage of the fantastic weather, except this time there were a TON of people). I also spent time stretching and foam rolling.


Great run !

We had summer like weather in Paris this weekend, 60s on Saturday and in the 70s today, Sunday. I went running on Saturday morning, it was glorious, one of the best runs I have had in a long time. It was early, not too many people, sunny but cool. I took my camera and stopped quite a bit along the way.

Great view as I get to the “lake’ (= very small pond) :

    That all sounds so glorious, especially with our continued single digit temps! What are some of your favorite routes in Paris?

    The food looks delicious. I’m sure you’re feeling the love from your body for feeding it so well! I’ve never thought to make mashed broccoli. Do you throw in a little salt and/or butter or just as is?

      Yes, a little salt and butter. I mash up a ton and freeze it… it warms up great in the microwave the evenings I do not feel like cooking.
