As a mother of 3 children like most my waist line is not what it use to be. I say time and time again that I am going to do it, today is the day, I'm tired of being overweight, yet I never do anything to change. Well as I get older I also get heavier and well let's face it I'm not getting any younger or any skinner without some try. This weekend I was blessed with an amazing opportunity that most people will never get. I was able to arrange a work out session and diet help from Brandon carter of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers :O) So as I journey towards losing the 20 pounds I have left over from baby number 3, who mind you is 4 years old by now, I think about the words of Thomas Edison who said "Our greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is always to try just one more time." I hope everyone has an amazing day, time to grab my Mp3 player and get on the road to a healthier life.

Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
