This year, I challenged myself to do the 80 Day Obsession workout program by Autumn Calabrese through Beachbody. It has been nothing short of hard. I have not been perfect at it but I have surely given it my all.
Just a few short days from the end, I am set to start a full round of MMA style workouts again with my favorite program of all, Core de Force (better known as CDF). This program was inspired from mixed martial arts movements and created with all kinds of body weight by Jericho McMatthews and Joel Freeman. Love those people.
For Easter, we did not do much. My wife took me and the kiddies to the beach to stay two nights. It was sweet. You all know how much I love the beach. Originally, I had this recipe up my sleeve from last year and had bought the ingredients to taste test the recipe one more time before going live for Easter. Welp, I did make the recipe again last week...just not in time for Easter.
These sweet Wine Maple Glazed Carrots are the perfect way to actually want to eat a whole carrot. I am not one to eat whole large carrots [or even petit ones], if not dipped into something. Once I came up with these, I felt I had reinvented the wheel.
