Motivate Me Monday link up #2


Welcome back to MMM. Our SECOND link up!
To learn more about MMM go HERE.
Thanks to all who entered last week:) You guys rock...
I LOVED reading all your stories and getting to know you better!

Last week we asked you to share with us a healthy recipe. 
One that wont make us break the diet, but is still super delicious. 

I saw this amazingly super delicious healthy 
ice cream recipe here
I thought healthy ice cream, yeah right...but its main
ingredient is BANANAS!
O and how I LOVE bananas!!! 
SO here it is...
 Bananas, peanut butter and Cocoa powder.
That's all this wonderful creation will take!
Peel and slice the bananas into small chunks.
Spread on a tray and freeze overnight or for at least 4 hours.
 Put frozen banana slices in your blender or food processor and mix tell its smooth. At first it will have a gravel like consistency, but don't worry it will work!
 add a scoop of peanut butter
scoop of cocoa powder then blend it all up..
this is what it will look like RIGHT after,
if you want it smooth like a pudding eat right away.
for a scoopable ice cream like texture freeze for two more hours

 and enjoy

I seriously LOVE it and don't feel bad about eating it one little bit.

This month I actually haven't had any Halloween candy, however there has been to many delicious fall meals full of fatty ingredients I'm sure. Cheesy Potatoes. Thick soups. Chili. ... AND I usually treat myself with dessert one day of the week but I had some Saturday and Sunday. I'm sure your thinking that's no big deal...but I'm the girl who eats one piece of cake and her butt giggles all week....seriously I have no metabolism. SO I will be sure to work harder at the gym this week. I went Mon-Thur last week. I couldn't find any ambition Friday morning so I slept in with Ty. It was really nice to not wake up at 5. but the rest of my day kinda dragged. Just didn't feel right.

actually I'm off to the gym right now...

Try to get there today, or do some form of workouts!

Treat your body with respect. Don't fill it with crap....
Take care of it...
 So the other day I went shopping because we were TOTALLY out of food and my cashier looks at me and says
"honey your a health freak" haha although she called
me a FREAK i totally took it as a compliment...
But I have to only get healthy things or duh I WILL EAT CRAP. Only buy healthy foods....that way when you get home and have a craving for something you really shouldn't have...
When I get tempted to eat something I know I will regret 
I think back to the last time I went to the gym and the 
sweat pouring down my face...and imagining that it was all 
for helps...
