Today is day 9 of Leslie Sansone 21 Day Walk Challenge. I "walked" 3 miles, jogged a couple of intervals and briskly walked. Then used the firm band for a 8 minute video.
I also did day 6 of the Fit, Firm and Fired Up DVD and a 5 minute core bootcamp video. My knee is still doing ok but I know when I have to slow down or not make a certain move.
Woo Hoo, go me!
I also walked to the compound mini market and back, took about 10 minutes but in direct sun since they cut all the trees down last year. I was ok for a while but I could hardly breathe on the way back, that 85 degrees in full sun was a b!tch
Ok so a story for you.
I was craving s'mores a few weeks ago. When I was HOME in the USA this summer I bought a package of S'more kit for 2 that had 4 halves of graham cracker, 2 miniature Hershey bars, 2 large marshmallows, 2 wooden kebab skewers and 2 tea light size candles (thought that was SO Freakin' funny).
So I did a check list, Yep, had the kebab sticks, had the tea light candles, but no marshmallows, chocolate bar or graham crackers. So on my weekly traumatic shopping trip I searched the entire store for these items. Ok, well not a graham cracker in sight anywhere so I had to settle for English Tea Biscuits-a cross between a cracker and a cookie. Found the marshmallows-they would have been a perfect fit for the hippie 60's they were that colorful. The Hershey bars here are thick as are the Cadbury bars and the Galaxy chocolate bars, all thick, so I went with Cadbury.
Get home and when DH left on his business trip I broke out the secret S'more stash. Ok well the tea lights were vanilla scented, the marshmallows didn't exactly brown or even burn right but they did eventually melt. Plopped them on the chocolate bar and topped with the other tea biscuit and took a bite. EEEWWWWW, that Cadbury Chocolate bar had more sugar than Domino's makes in a year! It was NASTY but did I stop? NO, the next night I took 1/2 banana and sliced it on top of the "cookie" then added 1/2 piece of that nasty chocolate and proceeded to burn the nasty marshmallows (saw that on an episode of a Food Network show). It really didn't taste bad but I'll leave out the chocolate next time. When you are desperate, you will go to great lengths to satisfy a craving.
Just thought I would share one of my many escapades with you.
Have a GREAT Day
