When I got up this morning I debated with myself about doing some yoga. I finally convinced myself that I should. I can always use some stretching and perhaps it would help my sore-ish knees. I guess all the running really is getting to them. They don't hurt while I'm running. Only after I'm done. They don't really hurt very much...just a little sore sometimes. Yesterday I put the incline at 1% to see if that would take a little stress off them. They seem less sore so maybe that's what they needed. I'll continue to do that and see how it goes.
Anyway, yoga. I did the Crunch Fat Burning Yoga and Crunch The Joy of Yoga. I prefer the Fat Burning one. It's somehow more fun even though it's the same instructor.
I tried out some Harry & David Banana Peanut Butter with my English muffin for breakfast today. Wow, that stuff is tasty. Kind of expensive so I won't be getting it very often. It was a nice treat.
Did some basic chores. We needed to stop by the bank and I realized I hadn't gotten eggs yesterday so we headed over to Safeway. There is a Panda Express there so we had lunch first. We tried to have Panda last night for dinner but it was super crowded so we walked over to the El Pollo Loco...they didn't have any white meat chicken available..bummer. We ended up at L&L Hawaiian..teriyaki chicken, brown rice and broccoli. Fairly healthy except for the salt.
Today we went to a different Panda Express and were able to have it....steamed vegetables instead of rice or chow mein, broccoli beef and string bean chicken breast. Tasty, fairly healthy except for the salt. I need to be salt free tomorrow or something.
I baked some chocolate-dipped cherry shortbread cookies this afternoon. I got the recipe from my SparkFriend Silentpawz.
Here they are before dipping:
Here they are after dipping:
The chocolate is setting but we had a taste already. Fabulous!!! As I write this, the rain is pouring down. It was supposed to rain on Friday ...nope, Saturday...not much, finally we get some today.
Have a great Sunday night and a wonderful Monday!

I was awakened at 4:30 this morning by a kitty coming to sleep on my chest. Then she moved to my arm. Then I decided I might as well get out of bed.
So far it's been a fairly productive day. I did my run this morning. After breakfast, I started a load of laundry and did some cleaning up around the house. We went to Home Depot and then to Lowe's in search of a heat lamp housing for the bathroom. Neither of our full bathrooms have them and it would be nice. Unfortunately neither Home Depot nor Lowe's sells them. They have replacement bulbs but no way to put in the whole fixture yourself. Hmmm... I guess I'll be checking online to see where to get them.
We had lunch at one of our local taquerias. Yummy steak soft tacos. They hit the spot. Then it was off to the grocery store. When we got back I folded the laundry and finished cleaning around the house.
Lots of stuff done. Now time to relax a little bit.
I hope everybody had a great Saturday and that Sunday is a good one.
