Yesterday was 14 mile bike commute, Bosu Ball class, then Bootcamp! Phewf! I felt absolutely, blissfully drained last night. What a wonderful feeling! Today I think will be an easy today, because tomorrow should be another hard one.
Oh, and I have another new love. Though not of the healthy kind.
After class, my friend and I decided to stop at Starbucks. I hadn't had dinner, and I didn't really feel like a meal. But this little Mini Peanut Butter Chocolate Cupcake was right up my alley. While it was a teensy little thing for 170 calories .... it was worth every single one of those calories - and really, was a better option than the Wendy's Spicy Chicken Burger with French Fries that had crossed my mind a few minutes earlier. This is the true meaning of indulgence in a responsible, reasonable size. YUM! My God I'm almost drooling looking at that picture on my screen. Mmmmmm!
I am NOT a Starbucks fan - which is amazing since BC has the most Starbucks in Canada, most of them in the Vancouver and surrounding area. I only ever go there if I'm with someone who specifically wants to go to Starbucks, and often I try to dissuade them. However ... for this cupcake, I may actually seek out Starbucks on my own. SOOOOOOOOOO good!
I'm tempted to try to find a recipe and make these on their own. But, I think I'm safer just spending a little extra on one of these babies once in a while. At home an entire batch would be likely to slip it's way past my lips. Better safe than sorry!
