bit by the baking bug.

Yesterday, People magazine released a new article on Britney Spears and her “tour ready abs”.  Brit Brit has certainly gotten back into shape!

Now, if only I had time for 90 minutes of strength/cardio and 5 hours of dance rehearsals, plus my (non-existent) trainer preparing my 1,500 calorie a day diet, I, too, could look like Britney!  Seriously, I would kill for abs like that!

On the flip side of Britney’s great new figure, I got bit by the baking bug last night!  Can you believe I haven’t baked at all since I moved at the end of February?  My cute pink KitchenAid mixer was feeling neglected.  Or my sweet tooth.  Either way.

I made Milk Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies from Nestle with a couple alterations to the recipe:

  • 3/4 white whole wheat flour and 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (instead of 1 1/2 cups all-purpose)
  • chia egg with 1 tbsp chia seeds and 2 tbsp warm water (instead of an egg)
  • added 2 tbsp of ground flax seed

They turned out so tasty!  I had 3 last night, plus however much batter I ate (no guilt when there’s not any real eggs in the mix!).

I had another one this morning, plus an Everything Bagel Thin topped with sunflower seed butter, chia seeds, and cinnamon chips.

I get to cross another item off my 101 in 1001 list tonight:  I’m going to the ballet for a performance of Romeo and Juliet!  But first, time for the work day and squeezing in a quick workout (since I’ve been more or less sloth-like since the 25k on Saturday).

See ya tonight!
