To keep it, to retrieve it and to have it for themselves only.
because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure — these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. remembering that you are going to die is the best way i know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. you are already naked. there is no reason not to follow your heart.

Chocolate Banana Peanut Butter Ice Cream
I ate half of it before I thought to take the picture. It’s THAT good!
- 1 small banana
- 1/2 c plain greek yogurt
- 3T unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1T peanut or almond butter (I used almond!)
Throw everything in a blender and mix it up. Then pour it into a bowl and place in freezer for about an hour and enjoy!
You can freeze it for longer, just make sure to take it out a little while before serving a second time or put it in the microwave for 15 seconds like I do (:

MUST try this
I still have so much to figure out about tumblr. I’m pretty sure my picture is only of my butt and that wasn’t supposed to happen. I also need to blog more, i know this. Does anyone have any tips on how to make my tumblr better?
So I started the advocare 24 day challenge yesterday and I am on day two of the cleanse right now. I hope this thing works. Have any of you tried it and found it successful?
No Bake Homemade Protein Bars (Makes 4 servings)
- 2 scoops Whey Protein (I like Cookies N’ Cream)
- 2 tablespoons Peanut Butter
- 3 tablespoons Water
- 1/2 cup Rolled or Quick Oats
- Optional— Chocolate, Raisins, Nuts, etc.
In a mixing bowl, stir together whey, peanut butter, oats, and water. You may need to add more water than suggested amount if ingredients are not combining, but make sure you don’t add too much. The consistency should be sticky, not watery. Stir in any additional mix ins, such as almonds slivers, chocolate, raisins, dried cranberries, you name it. I personally like to shave a square of Lindt 90% Cacao chocolate into my mix. Divide mixture into 4 servings, wrapping each serving in saran wrap or wax paper. Put in refrigerator. Work your heart out. Enjoy the goodness.
