Exercise and Jammie Dodgers

Went to the gym yesterday for the first time this year. And just the second time since the week before christmas.

Didn't do very well at the climbing bit. Didn't do very well at the pull-ups bit. Did okay at the cross-trainer bit (1262 calories.)

Maybe it's cause i was sick, and in fact am still in the very tail end of recovering from that. Or maybe it's just because i've only been there once in the past month and am starting to backslide =P

So all and all i only spent about 1.5 hours there instead of the usual 2 or 2.5. But one of the nice things about having a membership is that i don't lose anything from going there for a short time and then leaving early.

Afterward i did the usual trip to the mall for greek food for dinner and wandering about. And while wandering through Cost Plus i discovered that they have... Jammie Dodgers! Jammie Dodgers!

So of course i had to buy some. And since it would be silly to buy just one thing i also got some of those roune tube wafer cookie things. Except these ones were filled with peanut butter and covered in chocolate :)

So i ate way too many cookie things today, and presumably undid all the benefit of my meager workout from yesterday. Ah well, hopefully i'll do better next time.

The Jammie Dodgers are tasty, but not quite as great as Eddie Izzard makes them out to be. Well, technically, he doesn't actually say they're great. I believe he just says something about them being better than the crap digestive biscuits, which doesn't seem like a very high bar to hurdle. But in any case, definitely not worth crashing into a mountain and dying over.
