So if you read my blog, you know my love for cooking and baking. I have been on a long baking spree and and loving every minute of it. I am not a person that can sit and do nothing for long periods of time, a little ADHDish actually. So if I'm not at the beach, oxbow, working out, or working, you will probably find me cooking away. The problem with this is the waistline. I give A LOT of these goodies away, but you know all the little tastes along the way to make sure things are just right add up. And then obviously you have to taste the finished product. So for all the exercising I do which usually consists of 2 hours at the gym 3X per week, and then throw in a couple cross fits, and a couple cardios on the other days, well you'd think I'd weigh 100 lbs. Not even close! I don't even lose a pound. Two of my favorite things, but always working against each other. Oh, what is a girl to do?? Can you imagine if I didn't exercise, haha?! Ok, enough blabbing, I think I'll go grab me a chocolate chip cookie! :)

P.S. If you would like any recipes, let me know!!
