Ah, Day 2 of Week 5. What is there to say? I am trying not to use the words "epic fail," but that would about sum it up. I finished the first 8 minute run and figured the second 8 would be easy now that I had completed the initial round; of course, that was not to be. My second run went something like run 3 minutes, stop for about 30 seconds, run 3 minutes, walk for 2 minutes, run 3 minutes, walk/hobble home (I estimated these times based on the music on my ipod). I wasn't in pain, but I felt over-tired and my legs felt tight and crampy.
I blame the teenagers.
I have two teens living in my home who are off on summer break. I was awakened at midnight last night by the request that they be allowed to bake cookies. Yes, chocolate chip cookies at midnight. It was nice of them to ask first. I was then awakened by Rod Stewart singing "Maggie May" at 1 AM at which time I went and thumped on son's bedroom door and asked him to turn it down. He didn't mean any harm, he likes to sleep with music blaring, and at least it was Rod Stewart instead of Evil Clown Posse or whatever the other kids are listening to these days.
We have worked out this agreement that allows the kids to stay up later than I do because they "aren't babies anymore" and all that whine, but our agreement needs some ironing out of the details.
Tuesday I will repeat Day2 and I had better gotten some peaceful sleep the night before or no one is going to like me.
I have not shared a recipe in a while, so here is the one I've been using to make my own yogurt. Yogurt made yourself is so fresh and inexpensive. I strain it through a coffee filter overnight if I want Greek yogurt.
Here is the recipe... http://recipes.sparkpeople.com
I always make mine using 3 cups of 1% milk and the rest skim. It turns out fine.
