This past week was a great week. Work wasn’t stressful, I finished two books (Julie Klausner’s I Don’t Care About Your Band and Sarah Silverman’s The Bedwetter), I limited my TV watching, I slept well every night, I went to the gym every day, got up at 6:30AM every morning to make fresh juice, and I lost 8 lbs. Like I said, awesome week. Weeks like this keep my New Years resolve extremely high. It’s so important to have that momentum behind you.
By the time the weekend rolled around I was itching to make something sweet but didn’t want to kill my week of great eating and weight loss. I made a few things this weekend (recipes coming soon!) that involved cocoa powder and they all felt like a total treat even though they were super healthy. This year I’m going to slow down, take the time to research healthy but satisfying treat recipes, and make as many as I can for you and for me. Success in health is all about compromise and I’m totally committed to proving that it doesn’t have to be torture.
