I hit another one of my goals today and joined a gym. I am now a proud member of the RAC! It actually is Redmond Athletic Club, but the RAC just sounds cool. I was going to start the C25K (couch to 5k) program today, but after doing the warm up on the treadmill and checking my pulse, I think I will just do some walking/fast walking until my heartbeat gets a little lower. I also used the weight machines and worked on my upper body. It felt good to go to the gym, as it always does, now I just need to make sure I keep this up!
I also stopped at the library to pick up some books and one book on CD that I had on hold. The book I got isn’t a classic, but is a re-telling of a fairytale classic. It is called Beauty, by Robin McKinley, and is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I am looking forward to reading it! I have read another book by Robin McKinley and really like their writing. The book on CD is for when I go on a road-trip coming up. I prefer to listen to books when I go on long drives, and I also listen to books when I workout. I would say I do a lot of reading, be it with my eyes or ears!
Rather then cook something new today, I went a little retro and cooked something I remember from growing up. After seeing someone on TV with this I got an urge that wouldn’t go away so I stopped at the store and grabbed some Jiffy Pop. This is the Jiffy Pop that is already in its own little pan that you cook on the stove. It was fun to make and brings back some memories! I also picked up some Pecan Sandie’s which also remind me of growing up and fighting with my dad over who got the last one in the cookie jar!
