Reining it in a little...

Saturday, December 28, 2013

Well, I intended to take it easier today, but I wasn't too successful. So, tomorrow I am going to relax a little. I went to the library today, so I have a stack of books to keep me occupied. We will see if I can rein in the mileage tomorrow. I worry sometimes that I might be getting a little compulsive about exercise, and then I consider that there are worse things to be a little obsessive about.

I baked cookies today. I used the basic Whole Wheat Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookie recipe from Spark Recipe, but substituted currants and candied ginger for the chocolate. Oh so good! I had three cookies for lunch. LOL! They turned out very yummy, but not overpowering. I will have to make them again. Dad will get most of this batch of cookies, (I might eat one more after dinner tonight, but the rest are going to dad.)

Cooper didn't want to walk until after 12 noon today. I think I am keeping him awake too late in the night. Poor puppy needs his beauty sleep. When we did go out there was... SUNSHINE!! It has been a while since we had full on sunshine all day long. It was exciting. So, we went for an hour long walk in the sunshine this morning. I am hoping for a repeat tomorrow.

    I know what you mean about exercise. I have been told that I'm too obsessive... but I know more people that are obsessed with the couch so I'm not worried about it!
