You are what you eat…..so donuts?

Craaaazy Friday night over here.  I’m exhausted from my very early workout this morning (5 am) where I finally accomplished my goal of doing an unassisted dip!!!) but I wanted to post a quick recipe in case you’re craving something sweet this very second!

Ever have one of those days where you just KNOW that eating something really sugary/fattening is going to make you feel so much better?  I have those pretty often, yesterday actually, and it’s always an inner struggle to convince myself that I don’t need the whole box of freshly baked glazed donuts.  It was hard to resist these guys while at the grocery store yesterday-

But instead of being weak and giving in to cravings, I went with a healthier treat!

It’s important to realize that FOOD IS FUEL not therapy, not a reward, not a companion, not comfort, not entertainment!  It requires constant conscious effort to remind myself that I don’t need to indulge to make myself feel better.  When I do need to satisfy my sweet tooth, I go for recipes like this one!

      I’ve been getting way too much sugar so it’s perfect for right before bed, let me know what you think!

  1. Great job on your first unassisted dip!! I’m up to 6 in a row now. It feels awesome! I haven’t tried pullups / chinups yet. I plan to start trying them at some point this year. The donuts do look tempting… congrats on overcoming your obstacle! It is so hard sometimes, but always worth it.

    • that’s so great!! Can’t wait until I get to 6:) I tried an unassisted chinup today, could only do it with 12 pounds resistance so I’m going to keep practicing everyday! let me know when you conquer the pullup or chinup!:)
