It’s almost Valentines Day!

My incredible parents always got my brother and I valentines day gifts to express their love for us, and I think growing up in that environment has made me think of Valentines day in a different light. Valentines day for me wasn’t necessarily about that “special someone”, but simply the special people in your life. So go love on your special people this Valentines day! Hugs all around.

I worked out with a personal trainer yesterday after going to power yoga two days in a row on Tuesday and Wednesday (hellooo sore hammies) and now I’m officially whooped. We did a ton of tire flips, which I haven’t done for years, and now my arms and hamstrings are screaming in all the best ways. I love being sore from a hard workout!

Yesterday was my first time in a Golds Gym and all I could think about was Globo Gym from the movie Dodgeball! Man, that movie is a freakin classic. My family quotes stupid amounts of movies, and Dodgeball is pretty high on the list of movies quoted. I gotta watch that again soon. Maybe tonight. No joke, I just asked my fianc√© if he wanted to watch it tonight and he said, “Im Neutral”. Hmmm. Yeah we’re totally watching it.

If you haven’t bought anything for your valentine yet (like me- sorry Stu) you should make these cookies! They have a cake-like lightness to them because of the almond flour, but they taste exactly like classic Tollhouse cookies. YUMM!! Believe me, these will fool even the most skeptical of your non-paleo friends. Who wouldn’t want a chocolate chip cookie anyway?!
