Monday Motivation...

"What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are." Tony Robbins

I had a great workout today. I am enjoying my new bike! I think it will be good for my knee and it adds more variety to my routine. My thighs are feeling my ride today! I did 10 kms, (6.2 miles) and I worked in some hill/resistance work during the workout. The combination of elliptical, bike and treadmill worked well for me.

We are leaving in 11 days for a trip to London and Paris to celebrate 9 years of marriage! I need to work hard and stay on course so that I can enjoy myself on our trip, well within reason! I need to still watch how many cappuccinos and croissants I have, they add up! Hope everyone has a wonderful start to the month! Only 30 days left in 2008! Make each day count!

    I was just started to get into riding my bike when it started to get cold again.

    The trip is great motivation to keep with it!

    Sounds like a great day! So you think the bike is easier on your knee? Any recommendations for that? I have a bad knee (for the past 10 yrs), I get inflammation, rubbing, and pain. For the past 2 weeks I haven't been able to do cardio, but today I started back on the Elliptical (my favorite). After 15 minutes, my knee was hurting again so I only pushed out another 5 minutes. Any advice you may have for a bad knee is appreciated!

    emoticon Glad you are enoying your new bike. Sounds like your variety will serve you well on your goals. Im sure you will have a wonderful trip, and that your knee will be healed and you can walk wherever your heart desires. Keep up the great workouts you inspire me and my bad knees. Hugs T.
