Every time I’ve posted the past couple of months I’ve started off with an apology for not posting in a while, then I followed up with a promise to post more often. Let’s go ahead and pretend I’ve already done that so we can fast forward to the good stuff. Deal? Deal!
Where do we even begin? Life has been so crazy, break ups, make ups, crossfit, and job changes. Well, there wasn’t really a make up. But there was a break up. It was the right thing and I still think the world of Blaze and his family. Sometimes things don’t work out between two good people and that’s all there is to say about that. I know the Lord has great things in store for us and we just need to follow His will and not our own. So that’s what is happening. Moving on.
As for crossfit, have you found a box yet? I’ve had friends from Idaho, Delaware, Massachusetts, Florida, Missouri, and Indiana all start crossfit and send me messages to ask questions or let me know how it’s going for them. Those messages are my favorite. Just knowing people are stepping outside of their comfort zone and bettering themselves makes my heart happy. Sure, there are days when wall balls are the last thing you want to do (I like to call those days, every day) but you’re there, you’re working hard, and you’re getting stronger and THAT is all that matters. AND you’re just a few workouts away from your booty looking a lot better…..I call that a win.
I’ve started zoning my paleo with a group of my teammates. Basically I figured out I was not eating enough. Which is crazy because I feel like I eat all of the time, it has taken me two full weeks to get all 12 blocks figured out and eaten. Crazy right? If you’ve never tried zone before, it’s definitely a commitment, you have to weigh and measure, I bought a food scale. Who the heck am I? Anyway, I’m still figuring it out and will keep you posted, because obviously you’re interested, right? Duh.
Two weeks from now I’ll be cruising with my family and sweet friends. I probably shouldn’t eat any more paleo fudge until then. Who am I kidding, we all know I am going to. You should eat some too. It’s so easy to make you are going to die. Actually, don’t die. But make this fudge.
1/2 cup almond butter
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips
Put almond butter, coconut oil, and honey in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 1-2minutes, until they are all melted. Mix well. Add cocoa, coconut flakes, vanilla, and chocolate chips. Mix well and pour in to a greased (I used coconut oil) dish. Obviously the bigger the dish, the thinner the fudge, I used a loaf pan. Put your fudge in the refrigerator for at least an hour to let it set and then it’s ready to enjoy! I recommend keeping the fudge in the fridge because it melts quickly. This recipe doubles and triples well.
