Best Workout Song & White Chocolate Gingerbread Cookies
If you are playing catch up from the weekend….
- I ran a car over with my monster truck (kidding….kinda)
- I decided I want to start running and I started the Couch to 5k program to help me.
- and I did the Fun Christmas Survey!
I actually started my morning out with Starbucks! Its been a while, old friend.
I had to meet someone at Starbucks this morning sort of last minute so I didnt have time to make breakfast or anything so it worked out well. I got my favorite gouda sandwich from them!
Yesterday I managed to do my second run on the C25K program in between doing laundry. I was definitely not feelin’ it, but I did it anyway. I am hoping that in a couple of weeks I will learn to love running a lot more ;) I tell ya though, whenever I feel a lull if I turn on my all time favorite workout song, it perks me up right away.
If you are wondering, the song is “I like to move it”…. from the Madagascar movie. Try it, it will make you smile and the beat is wonderful!
I most likely will go to training tonight, but we will see how the day goes since I have tons to do today!
As promised yesterday, here is the white chocolate gingerbread cookie recipe. These things are so good and would be awesome with coffee!
