4-5 Weeks

WOW... time is flying... I am 4 weeks out from the LA show and 5 weeks out from Vegas. I still feel like I have soooo much work to do, running out of time and already TIRED but that is okay, I am giving it my all! No turning back for me, its all or nothing! The last week or so has been a bit... uh... rough??? I have been really emotional and sensitive and not too fun to be around, but hopefully I can snap out of it. I think it was just re adjusting to the summer routine, kids fighting, tattling, crying... you know how it goes. I feel like it is beginning to calm down and we are establishing a new routine so it is going to be okay!

I have tried a few new recipes this week, and have to share them because they were AWESOME. The first one I kindof just threw together. We will call them "these saved my butt muffins" because honestly... I have wanted nothing more than a big fat piece of cake and these did the trick for me.


1 C oats
3 scoops vanilla protein powder
3 egg whites
3/4 C apple sauce, unsweetened
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 to 3/4 c baking splenda

I added 2 tsp of my sugar free cookie dough syrup as well but if you don't have that you could just throw some vanilla in. I also added about 1/2 C sugar free chocolate chips. :)

Mix everything together, fill muffin cups 3/4 way and bake on 350 for about 15-20 minutes. I was able to get about 12 muffins out of this! They were yummy warm but fell apart and were hard to eat. The next day after setting they came out of the muffin cups really easy and were even better!

I ordered a few of the Torani Sugar Free syrups. I got Chocolate Chip cookie dough, Peanut butter and Brown sugar and cinnamon. I have only opened the cookie dough and it is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! It smells just like a yummy cookie. I have been adding it to my morning Oatmeal protein pancakes. I will let you know as I open the others how they are. I have some ideas of how to use them but need a little more practice before I share my ideas!

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend. We are beach bound! :)


  1. Those muffins sound so yummy!! Could you taste the syrup in them?

  2. It was sooooo good April. I think that the syrup just helped them taste more like chocolate chip cookies. I didn't put a ton in but I am thinking I could use more of that and less of the splenda next time I make them. YUM!
