AIRobics and Cooooookies.

Last week I ventured into the wonderful world of trampoline aerobics AIRobics.

Yes, you read that right.

I jumped on a trampoline … like a kid… for an hour… and it qualified as a workout.

Fun?

Yeah! Major fun!

Do you know what else is fun?

Eating cookies. But after an hour of jumping, I didn’t want to eat cookies that were 100% completely totally entirely unhealthy.

How about cookies without eggs… without butter… and with a little whole wheat flour mixed in for good measure?

Yeah, that sounds like it’s not a totally bad idea.

These aren’t health cookies. These are healthier-ish cookies.

And yes, jumping on a trampoline can be a workout.
