However, I told myself that I had to run 6 miles before I made them. Because I knew what would happen: I would come home, make the right away, eat the dough and at least a half dozen of them, start blogging about how amazing they are, then decide that I wasn’t really up for running.
So when I got home, I quickly donned on my running apparel, spent some time looking for my reflective arm bands (safety comes before even dough balls), and I was out the door! Nothing gets me running that quickly except the promise of junk food.
I ended up running 5.5 (I didn’t have my Garmin, but I gmap-ed my route), but whatever. Close enough. I HAD DOUGH BALLS TO MAKE!
So when I came home, I mixed them up, popped them in the oven, ate a few handfuls of frozen peas as I smelled the intoxicating aroma (seriously, great snack to keep you from eating the dough!).
Then I ate the dough balls for dinner.
Next time I will know that in addition to a six mile run, I will add “and eat a healthy dinner” when bribing myself with baked goods.
Gosh, on Monday I bought two candy bars, and today I’m eating dough balls for dinner! I have to clean up my act before it starts affecting my energy level, running…and before I end up looking like the Doughboy!
What’s the “best” (and by best I mean nutritionally worst) dinner you’ve have lately? Can you beat my dough balls?!
