It's the small changes that make the biggest impact

Feeling energized this morning! I felt the humidity the moment I stepped out of my apartment to walk Rusty. Heard the thunder and rushed home so that I could go riding before I lost my nerve
Below are the stats for this morning's ride:
Distance - 3.93 mi
Duration - 27:07
Exe. Time in Heart Zone - 12:14 mins
Cal burned - 231 kCal
Pace - 6.87 min/min
Speed - 8.73 mi/h
Wasn't an easy ride forgot to put my knee brace on but my knee is doing well and the humidity challenged me a bit. It only drizzled while I rode, it felt great to feel the cool drops against my skin. My only concern was the breaks on my bike but I managed and every day I am more comfortable with my bicycle. Guess I worry because I'm still a novice rider.)
I challenged myself today and rode longer and stayed within my targeted heart rate 4 minutes longer than Tuesday!! I'm looking forward to my ride in Sept but I find myself looking for smaller rides that I can attend as well as some classes for beginners.
Went to the Dr for my blood results yesterday and it went better than I had anticipated. I have been slowly been working on making changes in my diet for some time now and I can see the improvement compared to last year. I try to make better choices, eliminated soda from my diet and limit the amount of fast food I eat (if any). The scale doesn't reflect this yet LOL, well not as much as I'd like it to but it's in the right direction.
I am more encouraged to continue on my path of improving my health.
Gotta get ready for work before I am late.
