New Year, New Henri…in theory

Henri Exercise Jan 2016 1

Like many, Henri often starts the new year hoping he will improve his routines. Exercise for one.

He does a bit of the stationary bike, since he is not one for actually riding a moving bicycle unless it involves a picnic in the French country side with a baguette, brie and no moving cars for as long as the eye can see…

He also alternates between a vigorous walk and a light jog.

Henri Exercise 5 Jan 2016

After his workout, he does indeed feel like a warrior and quite healthy, especially as he “rewards” himself with a green juice. Only to return home with the promise of a slice of cake and buttercream frosting. The cherry is a piece of fruit, after all.
