So I have great news!
Everyone loved the leftover chocolate tarts from yesterday. They were a great hit… and I was talked into having half. Half a tart I think is acceptable… I skipped my pre workout snack because of it though… so that was a little tiring tonight, but the chicken I had for dinner was still kicking around come 9pm. Yes, that’s right, I did my TurboJam at 9:00 at night… I did it. That’s what counts. I make sure I get it in, even if it’s a little late. I also need to wait for my mom to go to bed so I can use the kitchen space. Haha.
Anywho, back to the chocolate tarts. I have I think four left (I saved them at home) so I’ll take those to work tomorrow and continue seeing everyone’s reactions. They’re officially really good though. Just saying.
So I’m not to sure what else I can talk about today, I found a new website that may help me stick to my fitness goal, but I’m still feeling my way around the site to see if I like it, so we shall see if it makes an appearance in a future blog.
On a side note however, while killing time at school today with my friend on ‘Pinterest’, I discovered about five new recipes I want to try… so we shall see how those turn out over the next couple weeks. I’m telling you, y’all will love them. Sneak peak, one of them involves marshmallows and chocolate! But I’m going to save that one for February so I can enjoy it too without breaking my ‘no junk food’ rule.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these motivation posters/phrases I found (mostly) on pinterest…

Tis the season!
I don’t really know why, but for some reason I feel all festive today. It might have something to do with all the Christmas specials on tv recently – I watched Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer today! The original claymation one. So good! (Though I never really noticed the amount of sexism in it – blame school for making me notice these things now.) I’ve also had the Swift Christmas CD on repeat in my car…
I was also thinking today, while eating my daily chocolate out of my calendar, as a type of Christmas countdown, I’m going to try to watch a Christmas movie a day until Christmas…why not? Exams are this week, so as soon as I finish this last paper, I’ll have more time.
Today I did a bit of baking, I made Froot Loop Squares. They’re just like Rice Crispie Squares, only with Froot Loops. Very simple recipe.Regardless, it’s getting closer to Christmas every day! Soon as I’m done all this school stuff maybe I can get my tree up. 🙂
¼ cup of butter
5 cups (or one package) of marshmallows (I prefer to use the mini ones, they melt nicer to me)
6 cups of froot loops (you can add a bit more froot loops if you think the marshmallow is too dense after you start mixing – If the marshmallow’s too thick you’ll get gooey chunks on the bottom of your squares)
1. Measure out the froot loops and put them in a large bowl (you need room to mix)
2. Put the marshmallows and butter into a microwave safe bowl and microwave them for 1 ½-2 minutes…. the marshmallows will puff up)
3. Mix the marshmallows and butter up so it’s smooth, then add them to the froot loops. Mix it all together.
4. Butter a rectangular cake pan and pour the mixture into it. Place in fridge.
5. It should take about 2 hours to harden completely. Remove, cut, and enjoy!
I also tried to make truffle hot chocolate balls…. they’re in the freezer now and I’ll see how they turn out tomorrow. More on that then though, so y’all come back!
