30 by 30 Thursday

Since the gym down the street from my work is closed for the month of December (are they trying to help people gain weight during the holidays?), I am back to running outside and am continuing with my yoga. I love both of these activities, just wish running didn't hurt my knees so much!! Yesterday I even ran in the rain, which wasn't too horrible except then I got cold sitting through work a tab bit wet.

In an effort to cut back our spending our hard earned money on food while dining out, Mr. Pickle and I are trying to eat out as little as possible. I even cooked dinner one night this week!! I know this will help with not only the amount of calories I consume, but also the amount of sodium (which my doctor advised I need to stay away from).

Some snacks I am enjoying this time of year are Granny Smith apples with RF peanut butter or Laughing Cow cheese, Persimmons, Healthy Pop Kettle Corn - 100 calorie bag, blueberry Special K bars and raw almonds.

Anyone have any good recipe for some low fat treats to celebrate the holiday?

I love the healthy pop kettle corn ..and Jolly makes a good 100 cal kettle corn too, but I cant always find it.
Low fat treats...hmmm, I will think about it. I have my christmas food network magazine, but they dont really go healthy!
And a gym closed for December? haha. That is funny. That is like an etsy shop (that I bought a wall decal from) is closed for December...I am like- ISNT This your busy time of year? Christmas? Andrew said because it is a Canadian shop...NZ and Candada are both commonewealth and I know NZ takes big breaks for Christmas too. But, you are in CA, so that makes no sense!
