So, I have been really trying to make a conscience effort to eat healthy and exercise lately. I mean I usually eat pretty healthy because I love fruits and veggies but I also have a food blog (and a sweet tooth) and no one would want to read this blog if all I posted was 100 different ways to eat broccoli!
And since I have been on this healthy ‘kick’ I casually mentioned how I was trying harder to exercise to Eric’s mom (Sarah) and she asked if we could start working out together a few times a week. I said sure, that, that would be awesome to have someone else to work out with to help me stay motivated. But, I had no idea about how hard core Sarah would be! We were walking one night last week and she was a couple of feet in front of me and she looked back and said “Come on slow poke!” and then the other night at the gym I had done 30 minutes on the elliptical machine and then done some weights so I was ready to go and she still wanted to work out! She has also been sharing all these healthy food tips and advice with me and all the while I am thinking about ice cream and things like these brownies! : ) But I am so glad that I have someone by my side to help me stay focused.
I got this month’s cookbook way back in August and first started ‘reading’ it back then. The first recipe I knew I HAD to try were these brownies. I have been thinking about them ever since but have not gotten around to ever making them. And now it is the last week of October and I am scrambling to make them and blog about them.
