I started out the morning, 4:30am this morning, mind you, just pressing play on my P90X Yoga DVD.
Its not the first time I’ve tried P90X. I start it with the best of intentions on Monday, do fine the first three days, and then…. Yoga on Thursday.
Dear Merciful Heavens.
Are you supposed to feel nauseated? Seriously. I want to throw up. And the dadgum thing is an hour and a half long. Its enough to make me just press pause and ditch the whole P90X thing for another three months. Give or take.
But I tried this morning, ok? At 4:30am.
And I got farther than I ever have, but I’m queasy and nauseated and… just depressed.
Which only sends me running to my happy place: chocolate.
As in… Triple Chocolate Cookies. Oh yeah. Much more fun than P90X.
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 11.5 oz bag Nestle chocolate chunks
- 1 stick unsalted butter
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
And lets’s forget Chaturanga…. and take a moment of silence to appreciate the consciousness and self-illumination in this bowl of chocolate.
Ah. I’m feeling stronger and more flexible already! This HAS to be good for you.
Melt half a cup of the chocolate chunks in a double boiler with the stick of butter, whisking until it’s smooth. Hello Mother. I remembered the apostrophe in ‘it’s’ this time. Your welcome.
Heehee. Just trying to make my mom have a stroke, one punctuation error at a time.
But back to the recipe.
