Spinning (and Baked S’mores)

This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.

Also called cycle here in America. I don’t remember it being so darn tough. I was taking it easy with little resistance but I still almost got cramps in my legs. Horrible! And the seats were so hard that I’m having a hard time sitting down now because of the pain in my butt. I guess that’s what I get from avoiding it for 8 months… I prefer doing it at my gym in Sweden though, it’s way easier knowing how hard one should push oneself with the pulse watch and percentage of maximum pulse. But I will bit my tongue and try to do this at least once a week. I will also try to do yoga at least twice a week, and the rest of the times do a normal workout. I’m also gonna try the class called Body Works Plus Abs next week and see if that is similar to Body Pump.

I’m so exhausted now and I didn’t have time for a real nap today either. But I had an awesome lunch and a long and nice shower.

When I had picked up the kids from school we baked Baked S’mores. Haven’t tried them yet, they have to cool before we can cut them into pieces. But I think it will be really yummy. Here’s the recipe for it if anyone’s interested. A review of it will be uploaded later.

* 1 cup melted butter
* 1/3 cup white sugar
* 3 cups graham cracker crumbs (9 sheets HoneyMaid Graham Crackers)
* 2 cups chocolate chips
* 3 cups mini marshmallows

* Preheat oven to 350F and butter a 9×13 inches baking pan. After doing it I can recommend a smaller pan, maybe even half that size.
* In a medium bowl, combine butter, sugar, and graham cracker crumbs until well coated. Press half of crumb mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Top with chocolate chips, then the marshmallows. Sprinkle the remaining graham cracker mixture over the marshmallows and press down with spatula.
* Bake in preheated oven 10 minutes until marshmallows are melted. Cool completely before cutting into 24 squares.

I’m excited! It smells delicious!

Now I’m just waiting for the clock to turn 7pm so I can go and pick up Kristel and Sarah so we can drive down to Mission Valley and the restaurant Stacked for Jessica’s goodbye dinner. I really like that restaurant. Kinda stupid I’ve only been there once. The restaurant’s thing is that you make your own dinner. So you choose ingredients on your pizza, hamburger or in your salad. For dessert you can make your own ice cream sundae. But no dessert for me today, I feel so good about myself after the spinning so I will save that for another time.

Until I have to go I guess I will move over to my bed and read for a while, maybe take a nap.
