6 Happy Months

This week, I had to give a presentation in my Stress Management class. We were supposed to describe in what way we like to relieve stress, aka, relationships, relaxtion and meditation, etc. I took my project in a bit of a different approach, and did it on Happinness. I said that I have been extremely happy these last couple of months, and I feel it's because of Nutrition, and Relaxation. I have been doing Yoga 3 days a week for the last couple of months now, and I feel so relaxed everyday. I am a stresser, and get stressed with the snap of a finger! Yoga has helped me be able to sleep better, have better posture, get my flexibility back, and just feel a lot more calm! I love it.

I then went on to share that we've been trying to eat better. We've actually always been good eaters, besides the numerous desserts, because the wife craves them. But I've really been trying to get fruit in the morning, veggies at night, and all of that fun stuff. I just really feel great lately, and it's a great feeling to feel, well great! :)

I brought "power balls" to class, because I love them. They're a great thing to pop out of the freezer, and have with a banana, and it's a great breakfast in my opinion! I brought ones with chocolate chips, because they have flax seed, so I didn't know how people would react with the flavor! But, they're also great with dried fruit! (cranberries are my fav)

Here's the recipe I used:

Healthy “Copy Kat” Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Balls
Prep time:
Total time:
Serves: 15-20
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 cup coconut
  • ¾ cup peanut butter
  • ½ cup chocolate chips (I used dark)
  • ½ cup ground flax seed
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  1. Mix and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Roll into balls.
  3. Refrigerate until ready to eat! No oven required!
Also, today is our 6 month anniversary! Seriously, where did the time go? I know it's not that cool being only 6 months, but I still think it's crazy!!! Love that man of mine. So lucky he's my best friend!
