Cooky Recipe Number 15: Coconut Apricot Strips

Saturday, October 13, 2012


These have a shortbread crust. After it bakes for about 10 minutes you spread on apricot and pineapple jams. Safeway didn't sell the the pineapple jam individually but luckily they had a mixture so I used that. Then you add a meringue with coconut in it on top and bake for another 20 minutes. They got rave reviews :-)

My butt is feeling much better now. I even ran a few times but then my arch and ankle started to hurt on that side. Another week passed and I got a sports massage. Feeling much, much better now. I did buy myself a new bike to ride outside. Got in 8 miles last Sunday and 9.3 this morning.

The 24" frame only comes in the old-people champagne but it's more brownish than goldish so it's okay.
This afternoon, I'll be baking some watermelon sugar cookies for my niece's birthday celebration tomorrow.
Also looking forward to attempting a short run tomorrow.

    When you said old people champagne, I was thinking of the color of pantyhose, but it doesn't look pantyhose colored in the photo. Woo hoo! How do you like the fixed gear? I have a hard time believing all the guys on the island who say they're better for going up hills. Yeah right. Is anything better when you're going up Hills of Insanity?
Glad to hear your butt is better. emoticon

Cooky Recipe Numer 14: Chocolate Fruit Bars and a Big Thank You to JULESRULES78

Sunday, September 16, 2012


These were from last weekend but I didn't get a chance to post.
For my sister in law's birthday, she requested oatmeal cranberry walnut cookies (not from the Betty Crocker Cooky Book) I baked these yesterday and we met up today.

Today I baked some orange chocolate chocolate chip cookies (recipe courtesy of JULESRULES78) to bring to a Rosh Hashanah dinner at my Aunt and Uncle's house


And how am I doing.....well, that butt cramp I had last Saturday appears to have turned into piriformis syndrome. The muscles were so tight that it pulled my hips out of alignment. I went to the chiropractor on Monday and she straightened them out...and I felt a lot better but still sore in the butt. By Friday, I needed to go back and have them realigned. My butt is still sore. It hurts to walk but not sit or stand. I have not done any running since last Saturday. I have been doing stretching, foam rolling, yoga and rolling my butt on a trigger point ball. I do have a chiropractor appointment tomorrow afternoon and I'm hoping that will help. I also have a sports massage on Tuesday...hopefully that will get all the tightness out and I'll be pain-free. I would really love to get back to running so I can do my HM in December.

    Your cookies are a wonder Nat. Nice eye candy for me, as I am doing a no-sugar streak right now. and I don't live close to you.
I used to have some piriformis syndrome lower back and high hamstrings pain, not saying this will work for everyone, but the reason it got worse for me is that I was trying to go faster running and rowing, and I concocted a strength training program to use at home. My remedial massage therapist said I should go to a personal trainer for ST exercises as the ones I put together were unbalanced. My personal trainer put together some exercises to strengthen my hamstrings, a variety dead lifts and lunges, my abs, planks, bridges and crunches and my lower back, supermans, fire hydrants and donkey kicks. She concentrated on those areas, but also gave me some leg and arm exercises as well. Taking a rest from doing too much running and rowing at higher intensity ( I did continue doing longer workouts at a much lower heart rate) and doing the ST for a while strengthened these areas and I have not had that high hamstring pain for quite a few months now. I am only now starting to try speed work again so it remains to be seen if I will be able to exercise at a higher intensity or if my piriformis syndrome will return. Just thought to share in case this is helpful to you. Your perserverance is awesome.

Monster Bars...not from the Betty Crocker Cooky Book

Saturday, September 08, 2012

But this recipe is on the Betty Crocker website.
I made these for our Labor Day get together. They were definitely a hit. Oatmeal, peanut butter, chocolate chips and Sundrops (natural-type M&Ms).

What am I up to? Well today I ran 9.8 miles (10.17 with warmup and cool down). I got a butt cramp at mile 2 that only now has started going away (I had a swig of gatorade on the way home from the grocery store and a banana when I got home). Then at mile 3.5, I was bitten by what I think was a horse or deer fly. I couldn't see it but I heard the buzzing and then ouch on my neck. My husband didn't see a stinger (so not a bee) and it hasn't gotten huge (so not a wasp). Otherwise it was a great run :-)

Be really careful with things biting you. My brother was just diagnosed last night with the West Nile Virus (there are 2 kinds) he has the encephilitis one that attacks the neurological system. When he got to ER he couldn't walk and he his head was huge from the fluid in his brain. It got to the back and they had to do a spinal tap on him to remove some of the fluid. They are transferring him to an acute long term hospital his recovery going to be long, poor thing and his wedding is on Oct. 20th! YIKES. We won't know how much damage until the neurologist sees him and tests him.

Color Me Rad San Jose

Sunday, September 02, 2012


My brother came over early and we all walked over (about 1.5 miles). Certainly glad we did because there were a ton of cars lined up to get in.
I got in line at the 3 portapotties. No toilet paper or water to wash your hands....this run is not starting off well.
My husband and I were signed up for the first wave at 9am so we headed over to the start. It was sooooo crowded. I couldn't see anything in that mass of white t-shirts. They didn't specify where we were to stand and which direction we were running until it was totally packed. Not cool in my book. FInally they started us and off we went over the dirt and rocks. There were a lot of rocks of all sizes on this course. I had intended to do a Galloway 60 second run and 30 second walk ratio but I never got chance to turn on my GymBoss. I ended up running most of it with a few walk breaks when it got too congested. After about the first mile (I think) they had the first powdered color area and there were volunteers throwing handfuls of colors at us. Run a little more and then another station. There were 3 powdered areas and 2 with liquid color that was shot out of paint guns. I'm certainly glad they gave us sunglasses...it helped keep the color out.
Along the way I managed to turn my wonky ankle on a rock..it hurt a lot when I did it but I managed to walk it off...I think. Feels a little stiff and sore today but not too bad.
I was definitely glad to hit the finish line.
I joined my brother (who didn't run but held my jacket and took this pic) and husband. We got a nice colored shot. Then walked home. Got some weird looks on the way back. Stopped at Seattle's Best Coffee for a cup and then showered. Then off to breakfast.
I don't think I'd do another one again. I guess I'm just not into people hurling color at me but I'm glad I did one.

    I did Color Me Rad a few weeks ago, I was completely appalled at the lack of organization! When we went to pick up our packets they didn't check for ID, check to make sure that we were really registered, and the place was like a madhouse! At one point I joked that we should have just gone back up there again with an alias to get free stuff. And the waves, hah! That's just funny. I was signed up for the 0915 wave, but my team was signed up for the 0900 wave. I went with the 0900 wave because they didn't have a clue what was going on. Not to mention that when I finished running, they were starting other waves whenever people felt like running. Seriously, people did the run multiple times. Or just started running whenever. Overall, it wasn't too bad for my first 5k but I doubt that I'd ever pay 60 bucks to take part in disorganized chaos! I guess the entire point of the run is to encourage people that running can be fun, but some organization would have been nice.

But I checked their website and the only one anywhere even semi-close to me is in Phoenix and that's still over a 6 hour drive away from where I live. So it's not in my future LOL. They really shoud have had more port-a-potties and make sure they were well stocked, and had the sanitizing gel available. And a better course without all the rocks! Hope your ankle heals soon.

    HAHA...LOL...I can now see why you opted to leave the new Garmin at home! I missed the color run here....Luckydogfarm and I did a tri together instead.....maybe next year will be better?!?! emoticon

    Love the picture! So sorry about your ankle, hope it is feeling better. Des Moines is actually doing 2 runs on the same day, the first is at 1 p.m. and the 2nd at 4 p.m. Sounds like they are a pretty popular run. emoticon

    Sorry you had a less than desirable run! I had aways heard that Color Runs were super fun. Guess thats not always the case! Hope your ankle is ok!

    Oh no! Hope the ankle heals soon.

My WW leader has talked about wanting to do one of those runs but it didn't really sound appealing to me . . . and definitely not!

    Cute pic! I wanted to do the one in Fontana, but it was sold out. Sounds like total chaotic, messy, fun. Take care of the ankle. emoticon

    Very cute photo. Glad you finished it, although it didn't sound like a fun run. BTW, how tall are you and how tall is your DH? Just
curious after looking at the photo.

    WooHoo!

Is that the model that - if you push the right button it sucks the extra fat out of your thighs?

    Yup, just what I thought. Pretty darn big on our small wrists. Is it uncomfortable? Otherwise, how do you like it? Thank you!

    Looks cool . . . I went with the 110 partly because it was smaller . . . but regret not getting the
210 with the interval timers. Ah well, I still love mine!

As my mom would say, use it in good health.
