Big Changes

So much has been happening this new year! Big changes.
Rick and I are both in school, 12 credit hours each. SO SCARY! This is my first time back to school in 10 years! Another big change, Rick and I finally made the commitment to be healthier, and to lose the weight that has been keeping us depressed. I want to be able to fit into the clothes that I have from before I got pregnant with Roman, and I refuse to get rid of them, so if I don't want to get rid of them, I need to actually do something about it! So, we found Herbalife, through a friend that lost over 40 pounds. We feel great. It's hard to give up all the things I love. One of the things that I miss the most is....BAKING. So I've been reading many "healthy blogs" and recipe variations, and substitutions. Being healthy is hard! But I have been getting results, I'm excited, so I want to keep it up! Besides if I can tweek my baking to make things healthier for us and my kids....it's worth it. So my first try, whole wheat flour, banana bread. I had a bunch of frozen bananas that I needed to do something with. It is baking as we speak, so I will let you know the results as soon as I taste it. Next on my  to bake list....Chocolate cake, with no flour! Instead of flour, you use black beans!! NUTS! I know! But it looks delicious! So I will try it. Stay Tuned.
