Before a 4-Miler. I won't upload the 'after' picture. LOL





What a difference 10 years makes!

The 2014 Reset Button

I lost weight in 2012, and gained a bunch of it back in 2013, completely derailing my goals. 2014 cannot continue that trend!

To put some numbers on things, here are my goals for 2014:

* Lose 20 pounds.
* Gym 21 times per month -
** Boot camp 4 times/week.
** Active recovery between boot camp sessions
* Eat clean 80% of the time (vegan, healthy, balanced)

Let's do this.

The reason I said coconut butter and coconut oil are interchangeable is because it usually does not make a difference. Most of the coconut butters I have found really are not true butters. Only one company I have found makes a real butter. It has the texture of peanut butter. Its Tropical traditions, but I think they call it coconut cream. The coconut butters I have purchased at the health food store have the same texture, and flavor as the oils. I haven't ever noticed any fibrous materials in them like true coconut butter should have. However the coconut cream from tropical traditions has the consistency of coconut butter (real stuff) When you eat a spoonful of it, the fleshy consistency is like peanut butter. It has the same feel in the mouth vs. eating a spoonful of Crisco texture. It's up to you which you choose. When I want a coconut flavor I add in the coconut cream from tropical traditions as it's flavor is very rich. I hope this helps. I have all three on hand but only one is different.

If you should happen to find a really true coconut butter let me know as I love it. It would be nice to find a brand that is sold locally vs. online.

No. Earth balance is not coconut butter. Use the solid coconut oil, the kind that is white. Usually health food stores carry it. It's pure oil from the coconut tree. Look for cold pressed as it is the healthiest version. Some grocery stores carry coconut oil too. Make sure you don't get the liquid kind. I know its confusing, but at room temp. It should be a solid.

LOL….your comment on my blog made me laugh. That is totally me on the treadmill. I need 5 distractions to get me through 3 miles. I'm glad I'm not the only one! I feel a little ADHD or something….

Best,
