Fitness Friday, Fun Finds, and Coffee Ice Cream

I received an ice cream maker for Christmas and because summer is almost here, I am on the lookout for some healthier ice cream recipes. I found the recipe below on CookingLight.com – it combines two loves – coffee and ice cream; I’ll let you know how it turns out!

There is a lot going on right now in the fitness bloggers world so I thought I would share them and give you a chance to read some new blogs, check out some new products, enter a few contests, and learn some great fitness info!
