Why does it feel like the days just fly by. One minute it’s 8:00 in the morning, the next minute it’s 2:00 in the afternoon.
This morning I went to Justine’s school for their Muffins for Moms. It’s a time to eat a muffin with your child before they start the school day. I don’t know what kind of muffin I had, but it was good. I tried to convince Justine to go up and get me another one, *greedy* but she refused. Which was probably better the muffins were huge and I didn’t need a second one.
Once I got home it was time to start baking for the bake sale tomorrow. Today I was going to make Courtney’s butterscotch blondies and New York Time Chocolate Chip Cookies. I got the recipe over at My Baking Addiction. After reading the recipe for the chocolate chip cookies it said to chill the dough for 24 hours. I didn’t have 24 hours so I made the dough and put it in the fridge for a few hours. I then started on the butterscotch blondies. They were so easy to make and smelled so good.
Oops.. I might have had to taste test one. They were as good as they smelled.
I don’t know what it was, maybe the dreary weather outside, maybe because I wasn’t feeling 100%, but I was tired and it was only 10:00 and I needed a nap. I got up a hour later and got to baking the chocolate chip cookies.
Cookies, cookies everywhere.
It seemed like I was baking cookies all afternoon, and after packaging them all up I was finally done.
I knew that I needed to get my Couch25k run in today, so I hopped on the treadmill and started the run. Then I realized I just wasn’t into it today. My legs felt tight, and I couldn’t get past the mental block that was telling me I couldn’t do it. I pushed on trying to do the run/walk and it was more like run a little walk, run a little walk. I felt like I was failing. Then it hit me. Exercise isn’t supposed to feel like torture. If I was having an off day, I was going to take that off day and not suffer through a run that almost brought me to tears. 20 minutes in I stopped. Exercising is for me, to make me feel better, and if it’s making me feel worse then it’s just not going to happen. I ended up doing 25 minutes on Just Dance 2 so I still ended up getting in a 45 minute cardio workout. I felt good.
I’m going out with my bestie Erin tonight. we are going to a restaurant Bravo for appetizers and wine and then we’re going to see Water For Elephants. I’m super excited to see the movie. I also packed us a few snacks.
I packed some Popcorners, and some of the “mess up” baked goods. No movie theatre snacks for me
I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday!!!
