So, I’ve been MIA for a while, it sucks, March was really hard on me this year. As I’ve mentioned before I’m bipolar and so winter is really tough for me some times, and because this winter has been especially long and especially cold, not to mention especially dark and gloomy, it has taken it has taken its toll on my mental being.
But alas, the winter is finally over, the snow is melting, the days are longer and getting warmer. It’s time for me to make my comeback!
Not only did I have trouble with March but I also missed 3 weeks of pole class! Unbelievable, I know! The first week was because of weather, we had a massive snow storm and let me tell you, one winter accident is enough for me! Then the next week I was beginning to get a sinus infection and tried to beat it by staying home and going to bed early, and then the next week I actually managed to get a sinus infection because my daughter was sick.
This Wednesday was the first day back to pole and I was still a little sick so it was really tough to spend the energy needed.
So this week I got a move called the rubber pencil.
It was really funny because I thought that I was way more bent than I looked. I was hanging upside down thinking, man my feet must be so close to my head. You get down and look at the picture and it’s like damn… not even close! But that’s okay, it’s a goal to work towards, and I’m fully aware my back flexibility isn’t that great.
Oh that’s another thing I’m irritated about! Because of my 3-4 week “break” I’ve lost so much flexibility in my legs, I was so upset and disappointed. But my teacher said that I should be able to get it back a little easier now because I trained myself. So I felt a little better about that.
Anyways, how about I leave you with a delicious recipe since I haven’t done that for you in a while.
This is not a healthy recipe… not at all… but Easters coming up so why not be a little bad!
Cadbury Egg Milkshake (makes 2)
- 20 wrapped caramel
- 1 T half and half
- 1/4 C chocolate sauce
- 3 C vanilla ice cream
- 3/4 C milk (I used Silk Vanilla Soy Milk)
- 1 C Cadbury Mini Eggs
- 2 Cadbury Creme Eggs
1) If making caramel sauce from scratch, melt caramels with 1 T half and half over medium heat and stir until smooth. Remove from burner to cool, stirring every now and then.
2) In a blender, combine ice cream, 3/4 C milk (of your choice), and Cadbury Mini Eggs. Blend until smooth.
3) Pour into a glass and stir in chocolate sauce and caramel sauce. Top with a Cadbury Creme Egg for garnish.
Until next week mes amours!
