Get fatty recipes
Apology in advance for more cookies. Tomorrow is my husband's b'day! Last year I went all out and made 5 different varieties of cookies and labeled them in little bags and put them in a big basket for him to take to work. I must have been really bored last summer too! I had to at least match my performance from last year. Enter the New York Times recipe for chocolate chip cookies. The whole cover of the food section (which my MIL saved for me) was chocolate chip cookies. I was salivating everytime that I looked at it. Yesterday I made the cookie dough which has to be refrigerated for at least 24 hours and today was bake day. I have to say one of my diet downfalls is baking so I try not to do it too much, but I enjoy it and I really like eating the dough (REALLY BAD!) and finished product.
They seem to have turned out lovely. I tried some of a hot out of the oven cookie which was delightful and I tried a cooled cookie, which was also very good, but I was surprised that it wasn't soft and chewy - it became a little crispy. Still good though.
Yesterday I ended up running 7.01 miles. Way to be an overachiever and reach my goal of between 7-8! Today I did an easy run of 3.43 miles, did some elliptical and went to a pilates class. Some sense of motivation is returning, for lately working out for more than an hour has not happened. I'm counting pilates in part of that working out bit. The plan from the nutritionist, I can't get into writing it down yet , so I'm still tracking my calories on Fitday. I guess I start eating something that I'm not sure where it fits in (luna bar, hard pretzels) and so I just don't feel like figuring it out. Whatever. Just don't bake chocolate chip cookies everyday and I should be ok.
Tomorrow for Bill's b'day we're heading to a play in Philly and to a nice dinner. I'm excited. Also, tomorrow I have a training in the district for most of the afternoon. YES! I feel like I'm working. Lately I feel like a bum, even though I'm getting paychecks through the summer, I should have obtained some kind of summer job. The boredom is getting to me. I forget if I mentioned it, but RESPECT shout out to all SAHMs out there. I can never be one!! I'm craving the school year to start!
Well, sorry about the baking this week, after posting fruits and veggies, please look at the fruit and veggie picture more often.
Does anyone know any tools for annotating photos? Mini goal to learn how to do that in the next couple of weeks.
