Whole Life Challenge Check-In
Well, we are officially past the halfway mark. It’s definitely still challenging, but starting to feel normal. I love the feeling of being back in a regular workout routine. This week I actually made myself work out in the morning and felt great! I was feeling inspired after reading this article from Two Fit Moms.
I still find myself craving sweets, which was the inspiration for these cookies. Yesterday I was so desperate I attempted to make my own sugar-free chocolate chips from coconut oil, cocoa powder and stevia. I must have been off on the proportions, because they were NOT edible. Let me know if you have any favorite healthy dessert recipes!
