It's FitBloggin' week!!! I'm finally starting to get excited. Since school started, I live week to week in terms of my schedule, and while I knew this event was coming up, it is only now that I am genuinely thrilled to see what this blogger conference has to offer. It is my hope that I walk away from FitBloggin' rejuvenated in my weight loss journey so that I can continue down a path of nice and steady losses toward my goal. I'm also looking forward to meeting/making new friends! :)
My blogger business cards came in today from Zazzle. Holy crap! They turned out so much better in person than I expected! (Please let me know if that link does/doesn't work since that is a direct link to the card.) They have a pretty pearlized finish to them with shades of purple, naturally. Can you tell that purple is my favorite color? Maybe not if you read TBW through a reader. I LOVE purple!
And last but not least, I gave a good shot to making my own salted caramel mocha today. This was my inspiration. I altered it a little, using 1 Tbsp of Smucker's Caramel Sauce (ice cream topping) and a packet of Cold Stone Smooth Cravings 70 calorie hot chocolate. I didn't add whipped cream either. My calculated version came out to 5 PointsPlus! Uhhhh... I'll definitely take a Starbucks version over mine any day :). Still, I'd like to perfect this drink so when Starbucks says adios to theirs, I can still enjoy mine. I found that my version was a little too chocolatey and could have used more milk.
Do you have a great recipe for salted caramel mochas? Are you attending FitBloggin?
