Boxes & Balls

by HEAB on January 5, 2011

Hello. Want to see what I’ve up been up to lately?

Per Ashley’s simple instructions, I made a light box as I really want to take better photographs for the blog. Now, I just need to work on better lighting, but I’m not sure what kind of light bulbs to buy. Any suggestions?


I also made some tasty carob balls…

The recipe comes from reader Tracy:

In a pan melt 1/4 cup of carob/choc chips, 2T of “milk of choice” (i use almond milk), 2 T nut butter; after it’s melted, remove from heat and stir in 3/4 cup of oats, spoon (I use a mini ice cream scoop) onto cookie sheet and refrigerate 10 minutes.

The only change I made was to sub 2 TBSP pumpkin + 2 TBSP water for the milk since I didn’t have any. Thanks Tracy – these were so easy, and they’re quite yummy.

I’ve also been doing the Team HEAB workouts everyday this week. How are the rest of you doing with them? I was pretty sore after the first day, but I’m feeling really good now. Have you done Lindsey’s challenge of the week? I did it yesterday and managed to hold plank for 2 minutes. Pre-baby, my record was 3 minutes, and I hope to break it before the competition is over.

Speaking of babies, Summer likes to sit in her bouncy seat and watch me workout.


Go Mom!

Chris is rocking Summer to sleep as I type this, and it’s time for me to call it a night. Before I go, I must say that all of your most embarrassing comments from yesterday had me cracking up. Oh my gosh, if any of you ever get bored at work, take a minute and read through them. I literally had tears rolling down my face I was laughing so hard, and the winner of the Cacao Bliss is…
