Kicking Sugar

Kicking Sugar

Sugar. I’m so into it, I love sweets. Love love. So when I let it get out of hand, I know I need a personal intervention.

For the last 3 years around this time I’ve done the 21 Day Sugar Detox so that I can kick my sugar habit. (I will link to it at the end of the post).

Here’s the thing: in life I pretty much always have a sweet tooth, and when the holiday season comes around I’m in my happiest happy place. It’s the time of year (usually starting at about mid/end of November😏) when I let chocolates and all the baked goodies into the house. It’s also the time of year when I don’t feel an ounce of guilt or conflicting feelings about it. Friends bring goodies over, I buy some of our favourites, and then I BAKE. I make all kinds of things, squares, cookies, truffles, and I use all the best stuff… butter, sugar, condensed milk, chocolate, you name it!  I save this kind of baking for the Christmas season because when all the treats come around I (we) can’t help but eat it up 😍

All or nothing? Or is something better than nothing? 🤔

All or nothing? Or is something better than nothing? 🤔

Well hey! It’s been a while….a long while. I feel like I’ve been doing an exceptional job of letting myself off the hook when it comes to sitting at my computer for any length of time. I’m not sure what it’s like for you, but for me, writing feels a bit like a muscle, when you use it a lot, it works really great, it’s efficient, but when you don’t it’s weak, real weak 😒. I honestly just got out of the groove and it felt so easy to let myself off the hook all together. Bad bad! Continue reading “All or nothing? Or is something better than nothing? 🤔”

How can it be that we are approaching the end of August?! Howwwww…. What have you all been up to?!

We’ve had a few little trips over the summer, along with some family visits which have been great. I’ve had a ton of time with my little guys and our adventures have been – The. Best! I think my iPhone camera roll is over 4200 photos and almost 900 videos, so I’ve basically documented our entire summer 📸 🤗 Continue reading “Full Body Workout”

Homemade Fudgesicles

Homemade Fudgesicles

I mean who doesn’t like a treat every now and then, especially on a long weekend?! I sure do and my kids are alllll about it, so why not treat yourself?! 🤗

With it being summer, I wanted to make some fudgesicles. I’m not exactly sure why fudgesicles came to mind…  I don’t remember ever having them as a child, I’ve never bought them, and I’m not sure I’ve even had one before 🤔 I swear! But, for some reason fudgesicles popped into my mind, and oh did I make some good ones!fullsizeoutput_2da

For me, there’s nothing like making a healthier, more simple version of something that you would otherwise find processed and packaged up at the grocery store. Yes, it’s easier to pick things up in the store and keep them on hand in the cupboard or freezer – I definitely do sometimes. But I often try to create my take on something when I can.
