Training for a 5k

I started Weight Watchers Online for Nursing Moms about 6 weeks ago. I have been walking with the boys a few times a week, but no serious exercising. Yesterday, I started training for a 5k (3.1 miles). The program I am doing is a 6 week program of run/walk cycles that gradually go from mostly walking to mostly running. By the end of the 6 weeks, I should be able to run a 5k without any walking. The program has me running Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday. I am also trying to do so arm and ab work on Tuesday and Thursday. Sunday will be my day off. I am hoping that by toning up my arms and legs and strengthening my core, the weight will start to come off more easily.

Apple Thingies

I'm not sure what to call what Myers and I made today, so I named them "Apple Thingies" which Myers thought was funny. We took refridgerated biscuits and flattened them out. Myers had fun banging on them to flatten them! Then we spooned some apple pie filling into the center and topped it with another flattened biscuit. They were pretty tasty!

Cinnamon Sugar Rolls

Early this week, Myers and I made Cinnamon Sugar Rolls together. They were easy and fun to make and delicious to eat!

First, we took refrigerated crescent rolls and brushed them with melted butter using a basting brush. He loved "painting" the rolls! Then we dusted them with Cinnamon Sugar.
When we were baking them in the toaster oven, Myers kept saying, "I wanna eat the rolls." He is not very patient when it comes to waiting for food to cook!

Oh, and I had to add a sweet picture I took of Jacob sleeping this morning!
