As of yesterday, the CrossFit Livermore 60 Day Weight Loss Challenge that I’ve been participating in, has officially ended. Watching everyone progress and reach their goals over the past 60 days has been such an amazing experience! So many new friendships were formed, and together we laughed, we sweated, we struggled, got frustrated, pushed our limits, and accomplished things we didn’t think possible. Weight loss can be such a personal and private experience, but we created a strong support system and became fitter versions of ourselves together. I feel so very lucky to have been apart of this challenge, and being able to share my recipes with everyone was just icing on the cake.
Speaking of recipes, I promised my challenge participants I would post one final recipe. Let’s call it a celebration recipe, because today we celebrate all the hard work and dedication put in the last 60 days.
And obviously, chocolate needs to be involved. Naturally.
These dark chocolate espresso brownies are rich and gooey, and everything you would ever want in a brownie. In fact, I rarely tell people that they’re gluten and refined sugar-free until AFTER they’ve tried them. The look on people’s face when they find out it’s a healthier alternative to regular brownies is pretty dang priceless.
Did I mention they’re super easy to make as well? Because they are! Click here for the full recipe, kick your feet up, and enjoy a well-deserved treat.
Now, the challenge might be over, but that doesn’t mean we should forget about the new habits we’ve formed over the past 60 days. Let’s keep the momentum going, and continue to set and smash new goals.
Cheers to a healthier and happier YOU.
