Oh, you can’t read that? ^^^^
That’s because my arms are useless right now. Like, seriously, useless. For those of you who lift weights, you know what I’m talking about when I say it was arm day.
When my son left for boot camp, over 7 weeks ago, I vowed to myself that I would accomplish 3 pull ups by the time he returned. I have never been able to do one, unassisted, so this was a huge goal for me. I started lifting weights (more routinely than ever before) and I have been determined to get a stinking pull up on my own. At this point, I was happy to get just ONE.
We have one of these pull up bars in our closet doorway in the bedroom, so for the past month I have been obsessed with attempting a pull up every time I walk by it! And every time, I grasp, heave, and move an inch or two up in the air. Then last week, big progress! I began getting nearly halfway up, and all of a sudden, within a few days, I did it. ONE complete pull up (and down slowly). You guys. This may not seem like a huge accomplishment to you all (some of you are probably rolling your eyes, it’s okay). But for me?? I’m so excited.
So much so that I headed off the gym and swam for the first time in over 12 years. And now…I can’t move my arms. Between lifting weights and swimming, they are pretty useless today.
However, if I had a plate of these Snicker’s Cookie Cups in front of me, I guarantee I would figure out a way to shove a few in my mouth.
One of my husbands’ favorite treats is chocolate chip cookie cups with a Reese’s in the center. That’s it. He is even content with the refrigerated cookie dough for a simple two ingredient dessert.
While I happened to have a roll of cookie dough on hand, the only candy I had was Snicker’s. And I promise I was going to stop there.
But they just looked so unfinished. And we all know I love frosting on everything…so I whipped up some caramel frosting and topped it with some peanuts and mini chocolate chips. You’ll thank me later for my ability to over achieve!! ENJOY 🙂
