I’m a little bit stressed about a few things right now. Nothing huge or life altering, but minor life things that I just have to get through: the first day of school, a re-finance of our house, presenting at a conference, plus just feeling like fitness has fallen off of my priority list. Like I said, nothing earth shattering, just, well, life.
At 6 o’clock last night, I realized I’d forgotten to make muffins for the parent coffee at the boys’ school. I’d actually signed up on the online volunteer system, so I couldn’t blow it off. This led to a mad internet search for a recipe I could make with what I had in the house (note to self: always keep ingredients for cinnamon applesauce bread in house. They are all shelf stable, so no excuses). Anyways, I managed to make a bundt cake with a vanilla cake mix, bananas, eggs, coconut oil, and chocolate chips. Yeah, not the healthiest. Then I made a “glaze” of butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla.
Next thing I knew, I was eating pretzels dipped in the leftover glaze. Oops. Sweet and salty is my go to when it comes to stress eating. Seriously, I spent most of last fall shoveling pretzels and frosting in my face every.single.night.
I’m not going there again. I’m going running instead.
