Less Running & More Recipes
|The Microwaved Cookie Experiment|
- I spotted my first bald eagle while I was on a run. I took a ton of pictures, but they all look like I took a picture of a speck in the top of a tree.
- I ran 4 pain-free miles yesterday.
- I ran 3.5 miles today. I stopped when I felt a slight twinge in my leg, just to be safe.
- I've been running less than usual the last two weeks because one of my legs feels funny when I run - like it is going to give out on me.
Focus on Other Things
It would be disappointing to not be able to run the marathon I'm training for (5 weeks until race day), but I know it wouldn't be the end of the world. Since I've been running less, I've focused on other things. We had family visiting and someone had to show them the last three years of our vacation photos, complete with commentary, and to make them some Cake Batter Truffles, which I think they liked even better than "Picture Night"!
|Cheesy Chicken and Wild Rice Casserole - no canned soup!|
I performed a Microwaved Breakfast Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Experiment with 3 different recipes. They all produced tough, rubbery cookies. You don't really need links to those! However, no-bake cookies are a different story...
I liked Chocolate Peanut Butter No-bake Cookies with chia seeds. I used only 1/4 of the amount of honey called for in the recipe. To make them, I also used the wheat germ that I won from Fitness, Health & Happiness!
