Peanut Butter Chocolate HEAVEN!

Did the Bosu Ball class again last night .... I'm still in love!  So tough.  Absolutely dripping in sweat and every muscle screams throughout the entire class.  Struggled a bit last night.  Probably because the last two days bike commuting to work I've felt extra energetic and have really been givin' 'er on the bike and working my legs extra.  There was a lot of grunting and groaning going on to get me through that class.  I'm trying to talk my hubby into trying this class one day.  Ther's actually a few guys who take this class, so it's not such a girls only club.

Yesterday was 14 mile bike commute, Bosu Ball class, then Bootcamp!  Phewf!  I felt absolutely, blissfully drained last night.  What a wonderful feeling!  Today I think will be an easy today, because tomorrow should be another hard one.

Oh, and I have another new love.  Though not of the healthy kind.

After class, my friend and I decided to stop at Starbucks.  I hadn't had dinner, and I didn't really feel like a meal.  But this little Mini Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcake was right up my alley.  While it was a teensy little thing for 170 calories .... it was worth every single one of those calories - and really, was a better option than the Wendy's Spicy Chicken Burger with French Fries that had crossed my mind a few minutes earlier.  This is the true meaning of indulgence in a responsible, reasonable size.  YUM!  My God I'm almost drooling looking at that picture on my screen.  Mmmmmm!

I am NOT a Starbucks fan - which is amazing since BC has the most Starbucks in Canada, most of them in the Vancouver and surrounding area.  I only ever go there if I'm with someone who specifically wants to go to Starbucks, and often I try to dissuade them.  However ... for this cupcake, I may actually seek out Starbucks on my own.  SOOOOOOOOOO good!

I'm tempted to try to find a recipe and make these on their own.  But, I think I'm safer just spending a little extra on one of these babies once in a while.  At home an entire batch would be likely to slip it's way past my lips.  Better safe than sorry!

That cupcake was so well deserved after such an active workout day! I wouldn't worry about the calories of it which you burned and more.

It looks delicious.

We have only 3! Starbucks in Holland. I do like their coffee but the side things like cupcakes etc. aren't that good here, not much choice.

I had one of those at Starbucks not too long ago- they are incredible and the perfect size!

I've never seen a bosu ball class offered, but I'd definitely be interested now. Seems like the perfect solution to the fitness balls that roll away!
