You are what you eat… 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!
