(no nuts) and peanut butter graham cracker cookies (made with Splenda and wheat flour). In between, we made a batch of brownies with walnuts and peanuts (applesauce for vegetable oil please). This is on top of the gingerbread cookies we made yesterday. No, I am not turning into a sugar craving monkey. We were making all these goodies for the upcoming craft fair holiday festival for her school to raise some money. And baking is a great way for me to volunteer my efforts.....and time but I don't think that part counts for this. But it doesn't matter, we did good.Today, my darling daughter and I have worked our butts off in the kitchen. We have made two batches of cookies --- swirled chocolate chip
I followed it up with a run on my treadmill and pushed one mile as much as I could at the 10% incline. I think I did pretty good all things considered. My overall pace was 12'40" for a total of 1.025 miles. Slow in my real running world, great for this treadmill world I am in.
Immediately I felt a little odd....not quite lightheaded but odd enough to pay attention to it. It seemed to let up and at the end of my mile, I felt winded. This is good under the circumstances. I stepped outside with my water to cool down and chill out. Ironically, when I got back inside I started to feel lightheaded and odd for a bit but that seems to have passed. Just a funny thing I had to share. I do need to check out the elevation here and see how that factors in. It would be interesting to see how many feet I moved up, if any, but keep in mind....I have run in this neck of the woods before....on occasion.
Today I am grateful for:
