I’m pretty sure I’ve hit a wall.
Not an actual wall, but seriously…when did life get so busy?
This is usually how my days begin…wake up around 4 a.m., eat breakfast, take care of dogs, go for a run w/ my mom depending on our work schedules for that morning (this is usually around 5:30) or if I’m not running I will do an online Barre 3 class, or Tone It Up routine, work, work, work, lunch, work, end work, go home, take care of dogs, study for both of my online nutrition classes, dinner, more studying, and somewhere in between all of that I’ve managed to brush my teeth and make sure I remember what day it is.
Buuuuuttt…today is totally Friday!
It’s my weekend.
I can do what I want.
This crazy involves lots of studying.
Probably cookie eating too.
I’ve been really into seeds lately.
Making seed butter has been my jam lately.
I found some time to make some cookies with it…and stuff it w/ dark chocolate chunks.
Because, ya know, I couldn’t let a Friday go without making you something sweet.
Plus, there’s chocolate.
Because chocolate is really the only reason you need to celebrate anything.
