LAST DAY FOR A SWEET TOOTH!

I was craving chocolate today. I’m not sure why all of a sudden on the 20th day, however, here it is. And remember, I was not cutting out or eliminating sugars however I’ve been trying to limit my intake of sugars. I know I feel much better without the intake of sugar. I have a weird obsession for granola. I LOVE granola bars. So, what did I do? I made my own!
Ingredients:

  • Coconut oil (about 1 tsp)

  • 2 egg whites (make sure these are at room temperature, it affects the consistency)

  • 1/4 cup of plain non fat greek yogurt (I used chobani)

  • some honey (I did not measure, but probably 2 tbsp or so)

  • small amount of salt

  • 1.5 cups of rice cereal (gluten free)

  • 1 cup of gluten free oats

  • carob chips (you can use chocolate chips, but carob is delicious)- to your taste

Directions:

  • 300* F on your oven

  • line an 8 inch pan with cooking spray (I use parchment paper)

  • mix eggs and coconut oil

  • add yogurt, honey, salt

  • stir in cereal and oats

  • add carob chips

  • press mixture onto pan

  • press extra chips on top

  • bake for about 18 minutes until golden brown

  • let them cool completely, and then cut into small squares

Then enjoy!
Since I had sugar, I had to follow up with ab exercises right?! Here is the ab workout I did!

  • I did 21 reps, then 15 reps, then 9 reps of each of the following:

    • arms up, half sit up

  • for this one, make sure you keep your spine on the floor (do not arch)-reps count for each side

*****IF YOU HAVE A MEDICAL CONDITION OR PAIN PLEASE CONSULT A PHYSICAL THERAPIST PRIOR TO ATTEMPTING THESE EXERCISES*****

By the end of that, I was exhausted! I felt like I had accomplished what I needed to after this day though.
I am now to the end of my 20 days “Post a recipe and an exercise” everyday. I’m excited to say I will probably continue documenting what I do. My blogs will continue to be consistent 2x/week now until I share all of my new and exciting plans!!!
