The recipe for these Paleo Blueberry Muffins can be found at Living Healthy with Chocolate.  They are divine!! These delectable treats are moist (not my fave word, but adequately describes the consistency) with a little crunch and sweet taste.  The coconut milk really works well in these muffins.

DINNER:

Rack of ribs purchased from Costco, my husband rubbed the outside with a mixture of seasonings – including paprika as the main flavor.  Our side this evening was broiled asparagus – cooked in a pan in the oven.  Note:  I consumed more than two ribs for sure!!!!!! 🙂

DESSERT:

I’m all about doubling the recipes of everything lately (including the “snack” recipe above).  I made a batch of these cookies twice this week.  My mom found the recipe, baked them – I ate, I enjoyed and I made them.  Even after baked these cookies carry a consistency of an under cooked mushy cookie – basically they’re a cookie dough lover’s dream! So, let me share with you these Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies from Lexi’s Clean Kitchen.  Please make and eat responsibly AKA one or two at a sitting!!

As, I believe, everyone in America is aware of, it is rather cold outside.  This evening I enjoyed a 45 minute stair run in the house.  I have come to realize that it is not my endurance that is truly lacking (definitely far from my peak though).  Rather it is my mental toughness.  I find it harder now to push myself through a workout and stay focused after a day of taking care of the baby and doing tasks around the house.  I know that I will get back in the groove by working out routinely; 15 minutes of exercise will not feel like eternity and I will want to keep going for two plus hours at a given time.  For now, I’m happy I’m making progress and working out for 45 minutes instead of 20 – cheers to leaving perfection behind!

Hope everyone else is enjoying their Tuesday evening…
