As I believe I've mentioned before, I don't have that much trouble limiting my calorie intake. But, as long as I don't move I don't lose. Therefore, I have joined some other motivated people to do the Jillian Michaels 30-Day Shred. Beginning today. I must be out of my mind.
On a happy note, my shoulder is feeling a lot better. I have to be careful about over-extending, but I was able to do some good cardio with shoulder / arm movements the other day as well as some pushups without it hurting all that bad. Nothing some Ibuprofen & Icy Hot didn't take care of, anyway.
Yesterday was spent at the creek with the family. Three hours of fishing, hiking, swimming, etc. It was awesome. I am just as sore today as if I did three 45 minute Calisthenic sessions! I'm telling you.. if you want a really good workout, find a body of water that can go from ankle-deep to neck-deep to waist-deep and back to ankle-deep in four steps that is filled with mud, trees, branches, rocks, etc. Get in and walk for two hours. With the current or against it, up to you.

1.) Shoulder is feeling better! (Thank God!)
