Healthy Donuts!
I decided to give Cassey’s “Cheap Clean Eats” donut recipe a try last night. However, I didn’t have any almond flour so I swapped in oat flour, plus a tiny bit of whole wheat flour and I think they came out pretty alright! 
Also, I have a donut pan that yields much bigger donuts than the ones she made, so I reduced the recipe by 1/3 because I didn’t want to use up three of my eggs for the week and I really only wanted to make three donuts anyway. Don’t yell at me for the weird measurements. I’m bad at math.
You’ll need:
1/3 cup oat flour 
1/3 of 1/4th cup whole wheat flour (I just eyed this using a 1/4 cup)
a dash of salt
a dash of baking soda
optional: a dash of cinnamon
1 egg
1/3 of 1 tablespoon honey
1/3 of 1/4th cup coconut oil (again, I just eyed this using a 1/4 cup)
scant 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions:
1.) In a small bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.
2.) Add in the remaining ingredients and stir until well mixed and the egg is blended.
3.) Scoop the dough into an oiled donut pan. (This made three donut pan sized donuts for me.)
4.) Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes. 
5.) Remove from oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes. 
6.) Serve and enjoy. Check out Cassey’s recipe video for healthy icing ideas! (I was too lazy to make icing, which would have made them much prettier looking. :P)

…I know that my weight does not determine my self worth. Every drop of sweat you produce and every rep that you can hold longer and every punch that you can hit harder - it is YOURS. And no one can take that away from you. That strength and that skill that you work to build, it cannot be defined by the weight on the scale. How beautiful you shine and how confident you are when you make a speech in class or nail a presentation at a conference - does anyone really care if you gained or lost 5 lbs? No, probably not.

I agree that weight loss can result in more confidence because you love how you look, therefore you feel good inside too. Cool, totally valid! But don’t let that image in the mirror determine how happy you are.

That’s one part. The other part is never settling.

Today’s Workout: Blogilate’s Bikini Blaster 1 HIIT it Hard!

When your schedule is super-busy and your day just doesn’t allow for a full workout session, doing something (even if it’s just 10 minutes) is always better than nothing. Always!

Working out at the gym didn’t fit into my schedule today. Going for a run outside just wasn’t going to work. It’s Friday, the weather is nice, and nobody is going to stop me from going to enjoy the weekend right now. That’s why I decided to do Cassey’s quick, 10-minute, HIIT Bikini Blaster workout when I got home from work.

It’s short, but trust me, that doesn’t mean it’s easy. Your heart rate will be near it’s max level, you will break a sweat, and you will be gasping for air at the end. Give it a go! If you have more time, try to go through 2 or 3 times! When you’re done, let me know what you think!
