sweet treats you won't regret

not ready?.jpg

I have a sweet tooth. I know it.. everyone who knows me knows it. I have always been a sucker for a chocolate chip cookie..and cake.. and brownies.. and oh my gosh Blue Bell Ice Cream is a dream. You get my point. But just because you are working out doesn't mean you can't indulge in a little sweet treat! CAN I GET AN AMEN

I thought since it was Valentine's Day it would be fun to share some of my favorite deserts, that keep me on track with my fitness journey that each of you can do at home!
