1) In keeping with my goals and trying to stay away from processed foods and less sugar, one thing that is my favorite are raw cocao bars. And no I didn't spell that wrong.
I have a huge sweet tooth. I LOVE me some sugar and thats not a good thing for this Hypoglycemic gal (or anyone for that matter).

Raw dark chocolate is actually good for you and it really only takes just a bite or two and your craving is gone. Stick to the higher percentages and it may take you a short while to get used to the bitter taste. Keep at it though and you won't regret it.

It is a little expensive because it has Caviar on top but if you plan it right, I can find jars for sale at my local grocery store (Publix) for $6.99 a jar. Thats a steal. But everything else, I bet you will already have on hand.
Here is what you need:
4 - boiled eggs
1 - 8oz. Cream Cheese
Red Lumpfish Caviar
Black Lumpfish Caviar
And that is all you need! So here is…

Today's topic is: New Year's Goals!!
Ok so I am not normally a New Years Goal kind of person, I feel like if you want to make a goal, do it whenever you want but this year, I am kind of feeling it. I have some goals that I would like to really focus on this year, so here they are. 1) Loving my Week Days. As I mentioned earlier, I am a "Working for the Weekend" kind of gal.
