30 by 30 Thursday

Even though I took a break from blogging, I didn't take a break from exercising (minus a few day earlier in the month when I was sick). Still running, doing the 30 Day Shred (not as much as I should be) and taking my Yoga class. Feeling good and more energized, although getting up before it is light out has proven to be quite the challenge lately!!!

Hungry Girl has pointed out that today is Caramel Apple Day. Mmmmmm. What a great way to enjoy the day and the season. I remember making Carmel Apples when I was younger with my family to pass out on Halloween (this was obviously before you had to be cautious about taking food from strangers). The following recipe came via email today (from Hungry Girl) and sounds fabulous!!!
