Oh my God my abs...Oh!!...God!!...abs! Oh, my God, my abs! I feel like someone is trying to rip my abdominal muscles out of my body. Who knew I even had muscles in there?? I'm going to go ahead and say that I must have a freaking 6 pack of ab muscles under this fat with the amount of pain I'm in. If only I could see them... The exercise ball is not my friend right now, we are in a serious fight!!!

Oh and I'm starving, not just hungry people, starving! My hormones are at an all time high. It's about to be girl time and my body usually has a chocolate backup to get me through but this month I'm coming with no ammunition. I'm pretty sure I might eat anything that has a small coating of chocolate on it.

Ok recipe time...
