Cool Whip Overload

So, remember how I was talking about that dessert last night that I was going to try to make…

well, it was a bit too- cool- whip- y (is that a word?!? haha) for both of us. I guess I could of gone a bit easier with it..but I was just trying to follow the recipe..it was called “Wonton Napoleons” from Food Network.

I made the recipe for two people- just cut it in half…but it definitely was not a keeper…at least for us. I think we both maybe ate half of it..and scrapped off all of the cool whip! lol!

Wontons sprinkled with cinnamon.

I should of just eaten the wontons like that^ with the cinnamon sprinkled on top..

Mid point prep

Oh, and I used raspberry jelly instead of the actual thing, because I didn’t have any. Needless to say it was kind of a waste..but oh well- worth a try ūüėČ

On to this morning– I woke up with the SOREST legs that I have had in a while- I thought last week’s were sore…NOTHING compared to today. Cardio Leg SLAM definitely SLAMMED me!! haha

I didn’t to focus more on upper body today..but started with a run (I think I’m addicted ;))
1. Run on treadmill- did Janetha’s quick run– I¬†know I’ve posted that before…but you start at 6.0 and go up .3 every minute- so you end at 8.7. I¬†then walked for 2 minutes to cool down a bit- I was sweating like crazy.
