"Sweet Treats"- Besan and Wheat flour Burfi

Sweet Indulgence...
Do you reward yourself at times???
So....past couple weeks I have been working out at 'Tipton Lakes Athletic club.'M' enrolled me in this program, where they give you 3 workout sessions a week with a personal trainer....all for free for this month!!!!
I am planning to take the 'Zumba' dancing class after this session! I have NO idea what that is...but sounds cool..isn't it!!!
I so much needed this....to get back into the habit of exercising, loose that baby weight, get fit and feel good about myself.....The last one is the most important!
 I hope it does:)
