Dangling Carrot

Two weeks into January and already things seem to be slowing down at the gym. No more waiting for a treadmill, no more scrounging around dark stinky corners to find hand weights, I guess the resolutioners are beginning to slide back into their old habits. Well, not this girl. I am committed to my exercise regime (makes it sound like torture) because I want to be leaner, meaner, healthier, cookie eating machine! That's right people, I'm in it for the rewards. Yeah, yeah I know its wrong to reward yourself with food but I've got to have something to look forward to after all the sweating and the huffing and the puffing. This weeks' pat on the back comes in the form of Carrot Cake Sandwich Cookies. Think carrot cake meets whoopie pie- soft cakey cookies joined together by cream cheese frosting. So good you'll want to work out everyday just to earn one (or three).

Check out the recipe from Sunset Magazine here.

Oh, these are fabulous! I've made a recipe similar to this in the past and they FLEW off the plate. And I totally agree with you about working out. For me...it's all about what I can eat guilt free after! Keep up the good work.

Ooh, those look good. For some reason the gym hasn't been that crowded this year, at least in the morning.

I'm with you. I *hate* sweating... the only reason I go to the gym is so that I can indulge a bit without the guilt.
