I love to cook, bake and eat. But this really takes a toll on my waistline. My goal is to chronicle my journey to becoming healthy and fit while juggling my love of food. I also love to curse and my goal here is to be 100% real. I don't want to sit for hours deciding whether or not a post will offend someone. If you are offended... read something else.
I made the best cookies ever of my life this weekend! I ate like 100,000,000 of these cookies! Okay not really but I think I could’ve.
I don't know how to name them....
