Lately, I've been really busy. I just started my final semester of law school. When I'm not in class, I'm representing criminal defendants in the clinic, volunteering on a legislative committee at the NH Attorney General's Office, and working in the school law library. With as busy as I have been, I've been striving to find balance in my schedule so I can find time to workout. Well, I have made nothing but excuses for myself. Sure, I'm busy, but if I can find time to watch television for two hours at night, I can take the time to do yoga or hit the gym. I just need to rearrange my schedule and get off my butt.
Tomorrow, I have a gym date at 7:30 am with a classmate. Hopefully, this will jumpstart my gym routine and get me back into the swing of things. I miss the gym. I felt less stressed and had more energy when I went to the gym every morning. No more excuses; I'm going tomorrow!
I have a love for fudgy brownies, especially the corner pieces. Strangely enough, I'm not a big chocolate fan, and I especially don't like cake-like brownies, so I was hesitant to try a "diet" brownie. When I was having a serious sweet tooth, I decided to give these fat free brownies a try. I have heard rave reviews about them, so I was more willing to try these than make the questionable black bean brownies I have heard so much talk about.
I tried the original flavor, but these brownies also come in raspberry, mint, cappacino. The original came out to be 3 Points+ for a 2 x 2 inch square, which is great for a baked good! Plus, they are all natural.
They only call for the brownie mix and 6 oz. of vanilla yogurt. The directions warn that the batter will be thick, and they are not kidding. The batter was like dough, and I have to admit, I was very sceptical. However, these brownies came out SO GOOD. They were very chocolatey (not light tasting at all) and fudgy! I was pleasantly surprised. My husband and I loved them and would definitely buy them again.
