Wowza! It’s been like forever since I’ve been here!! I’ve thought about it and even tried to formulate a post or two, but alas I’m just now sitting down to write a short post to let you all know I haven’t given up on this completely! As in true form, the end of November, December & January were all a whirlwind, cooking, baking, card writing, visits to the post office, family dinners, break ups, college visits, decorating, un-decorating, new resolutions, finding balance. I think I’m finally finding a bit of balance again now that most of the excitement’s over! It was definitely a busy time but so enjoyable all the same!
To start 2018 and this February off on a happy note, allow me to share a discovery with you. This past summer when I was in my hayday, feeling so good and ready to cruise and all, I was drinking pina colada’s like a FIEND (and wine)! Well, since I’m back on track with my weight loss goals and I really am trying harder than ever to find a balance reaching my goals and still “living”, I came up with a substitute for my pina colada that I so dearly missed.
Here is what I discovered:
1 or 2 shots of Malibu rum (1 shot, it’s 57 cal., 5.5 carbs, the only draw back is it does have about 6.5 g. sugar) mixed with 1/2 bottle (8 1/2 oz.) Coconut Pineapple Sparkling Ice. So yummy and smooth going down! I know it’ll become a favorite!!
I’ll be posting on a regular again hopefully so stay tuned! ❤️
