An Achievement, A Recipe and A Confession

1. An Achievement– I did 2 underhanded pull ups today! Before I had Finn (baby #4) it took me over a year to do one!! Now I need to work on overhanded ones!

2. A Recipe: I have a million I need to post! But for now I will focus on one. It was the bomb diggity! Yes, you read that right I said it was the bomb diggity. I can use dorky phrases ike that because it’s my blog. Anyway, this recipe is for cookies!!

(Bomb Diggity) Chocolate Glazed Banana Cookies

1 cup and 2T Coconut Flour

1t of baking soda

1/2 cup of water

1/2 cup coconut oil

4 eggs

2 ripe bananas

2t vanilla

1/2 a bar of dark chocolate broken into small chunks

2T cocoa powder

Usually in cookie recipes you mix the dry ingredients in one bow and the wet in another. I have no patience. I dumped it all in one bowl and mixed it up! Place heaping Tablespoons of dough onto cookie sheet. I made 27 cookies with this recipe.

A confession: I know you all skipped the majority of this post to read my confession. Who doesn’t love a juicy confession? One problem though, I am sure I am talking to no one because I haven’t shown this blog to anyone AND my confession isn’t really juicy. Ok, if you are still here:

I am a scale addict. I weigh myself when I wake up, after I go to the bathroom, after I eat, when I have clothes on, when I have clothes off, with a fox, in a box. And when it (the scale) tells me I’m down a couple of pounds, I am happy. When it goes up, I am a grouch.

Sooooooooooooooooooooo…………………I had Clayton hide it! I am not going to weigh for ONE WHOLE MONTH!!!! I am sure I could go find the scale, Clayton stinks at hiding things, but I will not. I am even going to avoid the scale at the Y. Who knows what will happen in a month but I know this, I am not going  to let the scale tell me if I am making progress. I already know I am, hence the 2 pull ups!! I am going to keep setting workout goals and trying to meet them.

If you want to know more about why I am ditching my scale go here and here!
