30 Day Challenge- Day 15

Today I was determined to not let work keep me inside for the entire day. I know it's completely in my control to get up out of my chair, open the door and walk outside...but I don't do it as often as I should.

I tried a new tactic today, which is usually what happens when I go to Trader Joe's, and went grocery shopping as close to 9am as possible. It helps me avoid the freaks and the terrible parking lot, but it also ensures I've got good food in the house to eat.

Before 10am I had already stocked up on some great groceries and I had been outside.

I was pretty happy with the day and was satisfied when at 730pm I planned on sitting on the couch with a movie. I did feel a twinge of guilt that I hadn't gotten a good workout in...but all that changed with a phone call from Susannah. Before I knew it I had showered and gotten on my bike with some Coldplay to keep me company as I took to the bike path and made my way to Venice.

It was such a fun time to be out on the bike path. It was only mildly scary when I let my mind wander to the wackos who could jump out of nowhere and have their way with me. But honestly, it was so refreshing and fun. The ocean looked so beautiful with the moonlight bouncing off of it. I normally stay far far away from the bike path, but tonight it was perfect.

I met up with Susannah for some Mediterranean food for dinner and then got back on my bike and made my way to Santa Monica. Instead of going the same way I had, I decided to extend the trip and go up a rather steep hill that landed me at the end of Ocean and Adelaide. The hill was difficult and I was dripping sweat by the end of it. But by the time I got home, I felt so fantastic!
