You know when your hair smells good right after you take a shower?! Its the best. I keep smelling my own hair. I told my husband, and he said something, and I said “Marzipan? How does it smell like Marzipan? And how do you even know what that smells like??” Hes like “what the hell is marzipan? I didn’t say that”…I guess he said it smells good all the time, and somehow, I heard marzipan?! CLEARLY I am losing my mind.
I feel like Splits 59 should donate to the needy…being me…cause I really need new workout clothes lol. If you want to check them out, I just put the link there for you! Its a little out of hand how badly I need all types of clothes actually. I told myself, I’m not going to buy any clothes until I lose weight….like 10 years ago. OK not really, but it seems like it. It has been a while though…my hormones are so out of sorts and I’m getting old so losing weight is getting slower. How stupid is that?! Its like “oh, you’re about to be 30? Hold on, I forgot to press the slow metabolism and grey hair button…let me get that for you”…unfair. Unfair to say the least. Then I decided, I am how I am and I just need to find some clothes that fit these crazy hips and just go with it. I can buy more clothes later when the rest of this weight comes off. In the mean time, I am going to Paris in 3 weeks so I need clothes.
OK speaking of weight…I am on day 6 of the Ultimate Reset…its going pretty well. I am kind of annoyed because I want to eat meat really bad, but cant. I have no idea if I have lost weight because I ditched the scale over a month ago. I figured, so I don’t obsess over it, I will weigh myself at the end with a new scale. When I first wake up in the morning I definitely feel lighter, and I end up taking progress photos just because, then the end of the day comes and I feel all gross again. I wonder why that is….? I guess I can revisit paragraph 2 about getting old lol. Hopefully this detox and cleanse will do the trick! Week 2 is detox week, so we will see how that goes. ALL I WANT is to be 180 lbs…I’m soooo close yet so far since it slowed down so bad. I am also 5’9 in case you wanted to know…and I think my boobs make up 1/3 of my body weight lmao…just saying.
Sometimes I don’t know what brings out the weird in me, and why I feel the need to share it with you all, but I do. That’s why I love Paleomg.com because shes weird too, but super funny, I enjoy reading her stuff. It makes me laugh, a lot. So many of my posts these days are about weight loss, fitness, health, etc etc…but you guys already know I do that just by visiting my blog or social media pages…so I figured I would share OTHER random stuff with you. Sounds good to me anyway!
PS my daughter used my self tanner lotion and spread it around on her body in random spots. Her skin looks all crazy right now, with tan marks everywhere including her cheeks haha…this girl is something else. She gets into EVERYTHING. I always wonder why people put those backpack leashes on their kids, like just control your kid and you don’t need a leash. Then Nevaeh came along…she for sure needs a leash….now I understand why people have them. Never judge the weird things people do, they are for a reason lol.
My daughter helped me make these cookies today, it was fun. OK….I’m lying….it was more of a disaster cause she threw eggs on the floor with a pack of almond flour, and drank the almond milk, and started eating the jelly with a spoon….
Here’s the less messy version….
2-1/2 cups Blanched Almond Flour
1 Tbsp Coconut Flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp salt
2 Tbsp Stevia or Swerve
1 Tbsp Raw Honey
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp almond extract
2 Tbsp coconut oil
Homemade Jam, Sugar Free Jam, Paleo Jam…whatever you want to use. I used my Chia Seed Strawberry Jam…it had a little raw honey in it and gelatin.
Preheat your oven to 340 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and stevia.
In another bowl, use a hand mixer, and beat together the butter, eggs, extracts, coconut oil and honey.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mix well.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and spoon the mixture onto the baking sheet in small clumps. Use a spoon to pat it down a bit, then poke a hole in the middle. The whole “thumbprint” affect doesn’t really work with this dough because its not wheat dough, but you can use the back of a 1/2 tsp to do it like I did.
Spoon 1/2 tsp of jelly into the cookie, then place in the oven for about 11-12 minutes until slightly golden brown.
Recipe makes 16 cookies
Each cookie has 2.28 net carbs without the jam so add the carb count from the jam you end up using.
