that's what i should be saying every morning when i wake up.
today is a great day.
and then, make it happen.
we're enjoying some amazing spring weather.
whatever those pretty pink trees are, they are rocking my socks. they're everywhere!
i'm overwhelmed by the encouraging comments and emails i received from my post on thursday.
i'm looking forward to responding to every single one!
thank you. i feel so energized and motivated, simply from YOU.
and since i "came out" about me and food. it only made sense that i should bake a treat. uh, what?
these are amazing. they are one of my very favorite sweets, and so easy to whip up.
recipe found here, and it even lists the calorie info. if you're into that. which i am. now.
when i baked these, i decided beforehand that i would get one bar. one.
the other thirty-five would go along with patrick to work. his co-workers were thrilled, and so was i.
because i enjoyed one treat. rather than getting sick on twenty.
that book up there? i've pulled that out again.
the concept there is, for example, when i want a coconut cookie bar, i really only want a few bites.
when you think about it, how much are you tasting your food after those first bites?
anyway, really fun little book. check it out.
here are a few instagram photos from recent days:
i'm excited for this new week.
it's not a very busy one, which i need badly.
p.s. i've lost four pounds already.
