16 weeks ago I begin a challenge.
The basics were take “before” photos, “after” photos, write an essay when you are done and put some products of your choice into your body using the business that I partner with.
No other rules.
Just me, my dreams, my goals and making daily choices.
I uploaded a quote from Ann Voskamp onto my phone:
I made a decision to move my body every day, except on rest days. I ate in moderation and I used the scale and measurements to monitor my process.
Thank you to everyone who supported me, accepted my new “routines”, joined me on the journey and coached me along the way. This is life changing stuff…
Pour into myself.
Pour out to others.
One beautiful imperfect life.
How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world. —Anne Frank
Our middle guy turned four today.Happy Fourth Birthday CC.
We always give our boys a choice of cake that they would like us to make. This year it was all about trucks, oh and candy too!
Thanks for always making us smile CC.
Hands up (or hands down depending what time of girl you are!) the best cookies I have had in a long time!
My neighbour brought over some freshly made cookies and the recipe. I love this as you get to see and taste the finished product, plus see how it was made.
Chocolate Chip Seed Cookies
(From Betty/Lizzie, my tea drinking neighbour)
These are big and yummy and freeze well, if they last that long!
Back at 350 degrees for 15 minutes (mine were smaller and only took about 12 minutes)
1 1/2 cups of butter
2 cups brown sugar
then add 2 cups of cold water
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour (I used 2 1/2 cups of spelt flour)
1/2 tsp soda
3 cups chocolate chips
1 cup raisins
1 cup pumpkin seeds
1 cup sunflower seeds
5 cups quick oats
*You can also add sesame seeds/millet/poppy/flax seeds or whatever you wish.
This is a stiff dough that needs good mixing and makes lots of cookies. Some people make them large. I don’t… plop them on the cookie sheets… you can flatten them, but I don’t.
Thanks neighbour. I have made them twice in the last week to share with people. YUM!
