It’s always hard to get back into the swing of things after a long weekend. sigh.
I am happy to report that I’m back to regularly scheduled half marathon training. After 4 (four?!) rest days for my poor knees (see previous post for details), I finally ran some much needed miles tonight. Thank you, Jay-sus!
I’m back to normal eating habits, too. I ate horrible the last couple days. Between cookouts and being lazy, food was not my friend this weekend. It happens, unfortunately, and my focus is back in line. Food is fuel after all.
How about the weather this weekend? Ooh, how lovely it was. The cooler temperatures get me in the mood to bake. I love nothing more than spending an afternoon in the kitchen whipping up cookies and cakes. My roommate, Kevin, is one lucky fella.
I happily made some of my famous brownie cookies for a picnic yesterday. I always get requests for these, which is weird since they are disgustingly easy to make. These cookies are actually not horrible for you either (within reason), low fat and delish.
a box of devil’s food cake mix (any brand)
4 teaspoons milk
1/4 c. oil (I use canola)
powdered sugar to coat
Preheat oven 375. Mix cake mix, eggs, milk and oil in a bowl.
