Ooey Gooey Goodness 

As promised, here is a recipe that is very close and dear to my heart… and stomach. 

I’ve recently learned that my skin does not like gluten. And that doesn’t work well with me. I love gluten. And cookies. I need them to feel complete. So, I baked and ate and baked and ate until my favorite soft batch cookie recipe had become a gluten free edition that anyone will enjoy! But, you may just want to keep them all for yourself. Happy baking!!

Could it really be?!

After a very long hiatus, I’m back and ready to dive in head first.  No dipping the toes in, no baby steps, just taking the plunge and blogging until my heart’s content.

Where have I been, you ask?! All over… I packed up and drove out to San Diego in my coupe with nothing but me and a carful of my belongs. After about 5 months or putzing around, I decided to head back to Florida and be closer to my family on the Gulf coast and never looked back.  I also vowed to never make that trip again. Have you driven through Texas before? Oye vey!

The past couple years have been good to me.   I have a fabulous job as a personal trainer, with clients I adore and enjoy working with. A new (not so) puppy-like English Bulldog named Ruger, who is the light of my life and total pain in the butt but I love him none the less. I’m in the best shape of my life, mentally and physically, with no plans of slowing down.

So, if you’re still following me, get your pantry stocked up and your gym clothes out because we’re gonna rock this summer of 2016!

“I like a lot of fresh fruit around the house and chocolate chips in my pancakes…”

So yesterday I threw together these amazingly fluffy and soooo delicious chocolate chip pancakes. I ended up just dumping ingredients in a bowl and hoping for the best. Well, how sweet they were! And…. I’m totally willing to take one for the team and make another batch with more precise measurements. Any takers?! ;)

Speak now or forever hold your peace! Haha who am I kidding?! I will definitely be making these again! Happy Monday, friends! Hope your week is off to a fantastic start.

It’s the weekend! You know what that meanssss….

Let me start by again saying how amazing it is to continuously have people making the choice to follow me!! Every morning when I wake up and see people have pinned my recipes on Pinterest, began following me or like a previous post makes me beyond happy! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

So, to everyone in the 12+ different countries around the world following me: I took a pole this week from people about what kind of fitness plan they think would be ideal, as I know my personal ones can be a bit daunting. ;) So, I’ve taken into account everyone’s input and will be posting this plan tomorrow. As well as a 30 day eating plan, that a few people have already started, as well as myself. And let me tell you: IT WORKS! I can’t wait to share this with you guys!

So, if you have any last requests, now is the time, family!

Along with the training guide and eating plan, I’ll be giving another cheat recipe and quite possibly a clean eating one as well! It’s the least I can do for the support I’ve been getting thus far!
