Well I’ve definitely had a quiet weekend!
I was hoping this morning that another woman would join our group who would run with me, but I yet again ran on my own. I told my friends walking I would be about forty minutes, but it actually only took me 28 minutes to get around the park. I did a little extra on the flats to make up some time and get my average pace down from 7:01 to 6:57🤣. Nobody should ever let me see a stat!
It felt great today as it was a double exercise day with a Lyndsay workout this evening. I don’t know why I like that woman so much when she made me do: 150 jumping jacks, 82 push-ups, 140 squats, 87 sit ups, 215 lunges, and 84 mountain climbers. It was all split up of course, so I didn’t know I was doing that many! I changed burpees to mountain climbers so my downstairs neighbours wouldn’t lynch me and I split the squats so I did normal, sumo and plié to work my entire leg. I was definitely sweaty by the end!
I really wanted to be reading The Trouble with Gold today, but these sleeves are taking forever and I can’t watch movies with them so I’ve been listening to Wives and Daughters on Librivox. It’s a good book- has even made me smile at times, though it still seems familiar. Maybe I can read my book tomorrow during my seminar.
I watched The Sweetest Christmas tonight. It was fine. I liked the ending.
I got some laundry done and the house tidied slightly, but mostly…
I have been a knitting machine for the second day in a row and hopefully will be done this sweater tonight!!! Now I just have to figure out how to get it to count for a HPKCHC class!
I tried another product that I got from the GF Expo today. It was a Chocolate Chip Cookie from Wendel’s.
The other day when I took cookies to my secretary, the principal commented that they weren’t like chalk and I didn’t really understand what she was saying, but now I do! It was perfectly circular and quite pretty, but it was so dry it disintegrated in my hand as I was biting into it. It also didn’t have much taste:( I won’t be buying this product. I would suggest they explore the world of vegan butter because their cookies needed some!
I also tried making Cinnamon Oat Milk from Emma’s Eats tonight. It wasn’t difficult to make, though it did take about 35 minutes, but only because I only had a Tea strainer. If it’s good tomorrow I will definitely buy cheesecloth before I make it again:)
Well I’m off to finish watching Christmas in Homestead with the impossibly cute mayor and hopefully finish these sleeves!
