How about a ballful of peanut butter? Maybe even better.
I can't wait to share my Peanut Butter Protein Balls with you! They have this moist, dense, truffle-like, cookie dough kind of texture that's amazeballs. But of course, when I made them, I didn't measure a damn thing, so I have to tease you with photos until I make them again and post the recipe.
I will tell you now, buy yourself a Hugh Jass jar of crunchy peanut butter if you plan on making them!
They're full of protein, fats and a just a few carbohydrates, plus they're sweetened with Stevia. Perfect late-night snacking! I think I may have beat out my Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Quest Bars fetish.

E) 3 rounds of 12 kettlebell Figure 8's (1 pood) + 10 pullups
I picked up some books while studying at Barnes & Noble yesterday. It's embarrassing, being that girl in the self-help section looking at "Alive and Thrive: Life After Divorce" and "It's Called a Breakup Because It's Broken." I much preferred the Christianity section, in the safe zone between Bibles and Joyce Meyer, free from dubious, judgmental stares and "those" awkward questions at the register.
As much as life sucks right now, I really have so much to be grateful for. And honestly, I'm happier now, even wading through all of this garbage, even with my future in a kind of precarious position, finances being tight, and the heartless way he's treating me, yes, even with all of that, I'm so much happier.
|Yeah, that's mayonnaise. Oh, to be 16 again!|
Phew, heavy subject.
And that's why I find my strength here these days.
And here ...
And maybe just a little bit here ;)
Froyo, like peanut butter, is always a good choice.
Look who I get to babysit! Furturds at their finest!
