got a special delivery todaaay!
i knew it was a delivery cause once again i heard an engine start up and a truck burn off before i even got to my first floor, haha.
Arctic Zeroooooo! *backflip*
i had been home for hours been home just a lil' while from teaching my 530am HIIT class and hadn't even showered yet but i had to capture this glorious moment with my AZ goodies! keepin' it real! no highlight reel over here. perfect pictures all the time make me apprehensive. that's just not real life. plus those 'Perfect Picture' apps i recently found out about (i'm so outta the loop)... i mean, after using it once i'd feel like i'd have to use it every single time and that no picture would be worth posting without it. so i just won't use it at all! that's just me though. getting sexified from head to toe is fun too (it's part of the reason we work out, hello) don't get me wrong, but i love meeting followers out in the streets and being in my element = bun, headband, gym clothes. i should be easily recognizable that way lol #nofilter
personalization wins me over every time. THANK YOU, ARCTIC ZERO! i am so appreciative of this! y'all know i've been lookin' for that darn Key Lime Pie flavor for weeks now.
they sent this Product Request Form with my goodies and i thought that was such a genius idea. i will be dropping this guy off at my Sprouts Farmers Market ASAP. after i circle Key Lime Pie of course.
shucky ducky quack quack. #whostillsaysthat

chunky pints... meet Chunky Butt.
what you're seeing up there is bits of graham cracker crust in the key lime pie chunky pint. YES!!!! THIS is what i have been waiting to devour and i finally have. two thumbs waaaay up from me. key lime pie is my fave (Papadeaux's specifically) but i said i was gonna make a completely RAW key lime pie for my birthday which is coming up faster that i expected, sheesh. it's all about the kids now anyway; i don't even remember mine is coming until somebody mentions it. next on our tuesday to-do list was breakfast!
with hidden veggies! yeah, it's fun being a professional veggie sneaker and all, but i do wish i wouldn't have to go through 'so much' just to get my 3 yr old to eat them. nevertheless, I CAN'T EVEN with how good these cakes were. and there's a Chocolate Covered Katie inspired greek yogurt frosting on top!
i roasted the carrots on 400 degrees in the oven (spread them in an even layer on a foiled pan) for about 30-40 min or until they are super soft. i did drizzle them with about a tbsp of raw honey first.
