What Makes a Great Run?
I’m trying to figure out why some of my runs are fabulous and some just stink. I know that the latter and caused by stiff muscles but I do the same workout every day. So what is making the difference? I was thinking it could be how much I stretch during the day or maybe what I eat, but I think it might be how much I sit. Bummer if that’s it because I can’t really control how much I have to sit for work. I’m always been jealous of people who have jobs that don’t require sitting. Maybe I need a second act?
What Did I Make Today?
An overly ambitious tri-fecto: Chocolate Zucchini Cupcakes from Sally’s Baking Addiction, Chocolate Chip Cookies from The Domestic Rebel, and Chocolate Chip Mountain Bars from yours truly.
Why Did I Make So Much (and How Did It Go)?
The Chocolate Zucchini Cupcakes from Sally’s Baking Addiction are for an upcoming road trip. I’m planning to impress the in-laws with these. They came out perfect!
I made the Chocolate Chip Cookies from The Domestic Rebel’s recipe because one of my kids is having a group of friends over to the house tonight. I decided to have some fun with it and follow the direction from Sally’s post today. I like the results. Thanks, Sally!
Finally, I made Chocolate Chip Mountain Bars. (We call these Madison’s Mountain Bars.) I didn’t intend to make these, but my little bomber got me again. So I had to make something for him to take to school. Fortunately, he doesn’t take them in today, so I got to experiment. I made some with a large scoop and some with a medium scoop. I use the recipe for edible dough by Center Cut Cook.
