Orangetheory Fitness Update & Results

I've been tweeting about my workouts and the change in my perspective when it comes to working out and some of you have asked me what my secret is. It's been a couple of months since I told you about Orangetheory Fitness and it's about time I told you how it's working for me, and what has changed since I started!



If you read my previous post about Orangetheory Fitness, you'll know that fitness for me is about having the strength and the energy to do things I want to do (for myself, and with my kids). It has been a good decade since I worked out consistently for longer than a couple of weeks, and I am thrilled to say that this is the last time I'll be able to say that.  Things have changed, my friends!

I'm going to explain a few things to you about Orangetheory so that you can understand some of the changes that have happened with me.

Hot Chocolate with Homemade Candy Cane Marshmallows


Whether they've been working hard outside shoveling the driveway, building a snow fort, making snow angels or just hiking home from the school bus stop, my kids love to come inside and warm up with a nice cup of hot chocolate. We decided to make it more fun during their winter holidays last week and make our own marshmallows! I have always loved adding candy cane to hot chocolate (there's just something so good about that hint of mint mixed in!),  so we tried coating our freshly made marshmallows in a mix of icing sugar and crushed candy cane and the result was fabulous!

How to Make Your Own Marshmallows

I'm going to share the recipe with you because I made some alterations to the original marshmallow recipe I shared on the blog 4 years ago. That recipe was great but it made a TON of marshmallows. Today's recipe makes a smaller batch so it's just right if you're making them just for your own family.
