Homemade Bailey's....guilty pleasure!

Each year I look for some sort of homemade gift to make for clients and co-workers. This year I couldn't pass up the homemade Bailey's recipe I found! I LOVE Bailey's and coffee! It seemed to be a hit and most people were shocked when I told them how easy it was to make.
Here is the recipe.
I was a little concerned about the raw eggs myself, but most of what I read said that anything dangerous is killed off my the alcohol.


3 eggs
1 can sweet condensed milk
1/2 pt. heavy cream
2 tbsp. chocolate syrup
1 tsp. vanilla or almond extract
1/4 c. milk
1/2 to 1 c. irish whiskey (I used Jameson)

Place all ingredients in a blender. Blend for approximately
2 minutes. Pour into a container and chill for about 2 hours
before serving. Must be kept refrigerated. Yields:
approximately 1 1/2 to 2 quarts. Great to serve around the

I also packaged this in frapaccino bottles and wrote on the bottle. Turned out so cute!

New Year Goal Setting!

It's my favorite time of the year! Yes, Christmas, but also goal setting time! I'm such a dreamer and a planner that I love having my whole year in goals outlined before the year begins. I use these worksheets each year with my clients and ask them to complete them and make 2 for me and one for them to share with a friend or family member who will hold them accountable!  For some reason just sharing your goals with someone else really makes it real and makes you want to follow through. As the year goes it feels great to check things off the list! I love setting goals in all areas of your life, not just fitness or nutrition. Please feel free to share these with your friends!

Merry Christmas!!

I'm almost back!

I'm so behind friends! Thanks for being patient. I'm overwhelmed lately with working, kids, the hospital...its crazy! I just want to say, thank you for all the thoughts and prayers. I finally feel confident that Adison will come home and be a healthy baby. Eventually! For now I'm just content that she is growing in the hospital. I'm not pushing the date of her discharge because I know she needs this time to get bigger. You can follow her journey on our caringbridge site. This has really taken my time away from my blog...sorry for those not interested in the baby!

I am slowly getting back to working out. Again...I'm trying to find the time and energy for it, but its really tough! Plus...I'm exhausted and I know I need the rest too. I'm trying to get my milk supply up so I'm pumping every two to three hours and its really hard for me at night!! No crying baby...just an alarm. I know I need rest, so exercise is taking a back seat right now. I got a great workout in last night with my fitcampers and I'm gonna be pretty sore! I felt like my legs might give out going down the steps last night! Wow!

Thanks for your patience. I'll be back at it soon!!!
