Delicious Treats!!

Man, did I make the most wonderful treats within the last two days!! I wish I had my camera to show you all just how TASTY they are! I even forgot the recipes at home, so I will have to post them tomorrow since I work again tonight at Fabutan.

The first ones I made were called Peanut Butter Protein Balls, all you add were peanut butter, honey, protein powder, rice krispies and some other ingredients and they reminded me of some cookies my grandmother used to make.

And, today I made Chocolate Almond Protein Balls. They have unsweetened cocoa, protein powder, honey, anddried apricots and you roll them into balls, then roll them around in crushed almonds!! SOOO GOOD!

So I leave you this morning with one of my favorite shows BIGGEST LOSER “Before and After” photos!!

Just look how tiny they got!! This proves that anybody can loose the weight if they REALLY want to!! 🙂

Me and Kyle have our weigh in today, I’m a little nervous since I treated myself to like a tablespoons of peanut butter last night.. so I cheated..lol Maybe I’l walk it all off at lunch!!

OH! and I almost forgot, they are opening a gym here at my work (Hospital) for 16$ a month!! Is that not ridiculious, I am paying 60$ a month at my other gym!! I am totally joining and will go there everyday at lunch!!

CANNOT WAIT FOR SUMMER! This will hopefully be the first summer in YEARS that I will wear a bathing suit in public.. so excited!

Comment: I really liked the taste of a turkey burger vs a beef burger, the garlic and onion really added some zing to the flavor!!

*on a side note, I haven’t had sugar since Sunday!!! I have never went this long without junk food of some sort.. but I am strictly sticking to this diet. The apple was amazing!! I have never enjoyed an apple as much as I did today, absolutely scrumptious!*
