VALENTINE’S DAY WINE GUMMIES

Happy Valentine’s Day sweethearts! ❤  A day full of flowers, chocolates, love…and wine gummies? I think YES. I made these awhile back and actually posted this recipe for another blog, and it was a huge hit so I decided I will share here as well :). Tell the chocolates to stay on the shelves this year, because these are bound to be all the rage – especially if you’re a wine lover.

Seriously the quickest recipe ever – just three ingredients! Since you can use red or white wine, you can cater to whatever you prefer, or if these are for someone else, whatever they prefer. These def can be made for any occasion, whichever cookie cutters you want to use! Easter? Jesus has risen – let’s celebrate with wine gummies! Columbus Day? He was Italian, they make wine, let’s celebrate with wine gummies! Labor Day? What is a little winding down the concept of work without a little wine? Let’s celebrate with wine gummies! You get the gist – and hey if you want to make them just because, I totally get that 😉

 


Ingredients:

1 cup of wine of your choice

4 Tbsp. gelatin

2 Tbsp. maple syrup* (To make sweeter, you can add more maple syrup. I wanted to keep the wine flavor, so I only used 2 Tbsp.)

Directions:

  • Pour wine into a saucepan over low heat. Let heat up for about 3-5 minutes at this low heat, you do not want the wine to boil.
  • Add 1 Tbsp. of gelatin at a time, whisking after each addition to make sure it is combined thoroughly.
  • Add maple syrup to the sweetness you desire. Whisk it all together and remove from heat.
  • Pour into long pan and let chill/set in fridge for 1-2 hours.

You can cut them out in any shape you desire or use cookie cutters, I chose hearts since Valentine’s Day is today 🙂

Note: Once chilled some parts may look bubbly, simply just cut out your shape and flip it over for the smooth side.

2018 BOOTY GAINS

Happy New Year! So excited to see what is in store for 2018 and to leave 2017 behind! I guess my first resolution should be to get back into posting weekly. I have sooo many ideas for content but what good are they if they just stay in my head? With the start of a new year, I see so many “new year, new me” quotes, but lately I have been seeing so many more “new year, new body” type of quotes and resolutions – which I think is great! Being active and fit is so important to your overall health and even self-esteem. I think 2017 was all about the booty, and I think 2018 will be the same so I will be sharing with you my booty regiment. I actually do legs two times a week, call me crazzzzzzy. After a few weeks of doing this, I do switch it up to other routines because it is good to shock the body so the muscles don’t get so used to certain workouts. If this post goes well, I will be sharing my other workouts I do throughout the week :). *Disclaimer – I am not a personal trainer, nor am I some bikini competition model, but I am pretty proud of my assets (lol) and after working out for years, I’d like to think I know a thing or two 😛 I posted a few videos of sample exercises, and the workouts are at the bottom of the page 🙂


I try to do legs beginning of week + end of week. Usually Monday/Friday. Do weights that you feel comfortable with and don’t try to over exert yourself! I always switch it up between heavy weights and low weights.

Below are two examples of exercises (I may add more!). The first one is single leg glute bridges. The other two are modified kickbacks – putting the weight behind your knee!
