Since I bought those few Jillian Michaels DVDs in June, I’ve been on a mission to get fit. I’ve got a mild obsession to be at my absolute fittest by the time I turn 31 in December. Don’t ask me why…
“You can eat your way through any amount of fitness.“ Yes, yes… Jillian, I know. But honestly, there’s just too much good food (bad food) out there to not indulge in. On Friday night we had pizzas – granted mine was gluten-free, so I take comfort in fact that it was somewhat healthy!
But then, I had to go and pop into Woolworths – the newly renovated and extended Woolworths around the corner from us – earlier after work on an empty stomach. NOT a good idea. I walked out with mini marshmallows, cranberry spice tea, milk, some custard tarts for Geoff, and – one of the most evil inventions on earth – salted caramel.
Oh my goodness.
This stuff is like peanut butter and chocolate. It’s like an explosion of heaven in your mouth. I’ve seen salted caramel on TV – on the cooking channels, but I’ve never been able to find it anywhere. Until now.
Last year we had a mini Halloween celebration at home. Yes, I know… It’s an American tradition. But why do they get to have all the fun? So we rented out a couple of scary movies and made cake pops and a good attempt at popcorn with our own version of salted caramel poured over. It wasn’t a bad first attempt, but now I know where to get the really good stuff!
As far as my fitness progress over the last 3 months goes… I can definitely notice a difference. I don’t feel like dying half way through one of those insane workout DVDs. This woman doesn’t mess around. But that’s good – it’s what I need. I manage to get in about 4 x half an hour workouts before or after work each week. I’m on level 2 now on most of the workouts… there are 4 levels on some of them. Who needs the gym?!
Is anyone else as obsessed with this salted caramel stuff as I am? I really need to stop thinking about it. Apples, bananas, oranges…. salted caramel, damn, it’s not working.
Found this – and the top image – on Pinterest. Just go and have a look at ALL those recipes using salted caramel! You should probably eat something before you do though!
