Thinking and Thoughts

What an intense week (hence my lack of posting)! Between looming deadlines, flooded bathrooms and crazy neighbors, I just feel like I need to catch my breath. Luckily, I have an amazing supporter who keeps me grounded and special friends whose words “don’t stress” really hold true right about now. Like a loyal amigo, a glass of lean green was also there to see me through and there were also these little guys:

Earth Balls!

They’re real multi-taskers. Also known as energy balls or bliss balls, just one can keep you satiated until your next meal, provide the perfect dose of energy for your workout and satisfy even the sweetest tooth (tried & true… just ask E).

You can find the recipe here. Please note that I omitted the chocolate chips and used sesame seeds instead. I also added a tablespoon of hemp seeds and a tablespoon of chia seeds.

I leave you with these thoughts from a book that I’m reading:

“When you’re feeling negative or doubt yourself, not matter how much you want to make a change, some part of you will undermine your goals and stop you from believing that real change, progress and personal success are possible.”

“Extreme dieting and working out is unnecessary punishment. It ultimately hurts the body and mind and distances you from positive goals.”
