Houston. I have a problem.

So, I’ve been really loving  Turbulence Training.  I’m on the beginner level and just finished week one.  The workout seems more reasonable to me.  I tend to really get into the boot camp type workouts .

The problem with me and these workouts is that I get super Gung ho. I  work out like an animal and then get sick and then I never do it again.

Turbulence Training is the perfect workout for me and I am so excited to see my results in 90 days.

Ok, back to my problem.  I have a love hate relationship with journaling my food.

I know that I have to because, yeah, it’s kinda a mish-mash of embarrassment and horror when I saw what I was eating for the past week.

I’m in a pickle where I love creating amazing desserts but I have no control when it comes to treats in my house.


So seeing that I love thinking outside the box, I figured for the next little while, I would share single serving dessert recipes.

It’s a win win for those like myself who want a sweet treat but can’t deal with the temptation of a entire cake in the house.

  1. Looks so good! I have the same problem with having treats in the house, so I’m going to appreciate this. Question, though: did you cook those beets before you blended and strained? Raw or cooked beet juice–or does it matter? Thanks.
