Chocolate Chip & Banana Muffins



Today I did it.
Today I really held my own.
Today is monumental for one reason.
Today...Today I did not eat chocolate until 716pm PST.




Once you have your baby you might still be in "I can eat whatever I want because I'm eating for two mode."  I find myself here daily.  Not only are you still in that mode of thinking but you are also thinking "whoa is me and I deserve to eat whatever I want mode."



You can now see how this becomes quite dangerous to the figure..and quite dangerous to you ever fitting back into the pants you wore before you became pregnant.  So what has been calling my name lately?  Glad you asked, well it's chocolate baby.  I'm not picky either, and the hubster brought home two bags of Dove Chocolates.



Also you might have noticed but the Easter Bunny was here over the weekend and that little creature left way to many things for me to sample...umm I mean he left way to many things for Indigo and the baby, and moms have to taste test...DUH.
