I know I haven’t been around much for the last few weeks. Well, it’s time for me to let you in on a little of what I’ve been up to.
It’s confession time…..
Confession #1: I took almost the entire month of July off from working out, and fully acknowledge that it’s not fair that my abs still look like this….
Confession #2: Sometimes I burn my toast on purpose. I like it that way. Don’t judge.
Confession #3: I forgot to water the hydrangea plant Mama Gidget gave me. Luckily, it perked right back up I practically drowned it in a last ditch effort to save its life.
Confession #4: I have become a choco-holic.
This last confession, #4, is particularly strange because I’m normally more of a fruit-obsessed individual. But, these last few days, I have been craving chocolate morning and night. Sugar-free Chocolate Mug Cakes have been a nightly occurrence, and this morning, chocolate even found its way into my breakfast!
I added a scoop of unsweetened cocoa powder to my usual protein powder to create a luscious chocolate-lovers dream smoothie. In a perfect world, this would have been a smooth, icy treat. However, my blender is… well… crappy. So, I ended up with ice clumps floating in liquid. Regardless, it still tasted delicious!
