Double Chocolate Banana Bread
Lately, I am dealing with some personal stuff which partly explains my absence here. So, instead of being consumed with more stress, I went for a run early on a Saturday morning to take some load off my mind. It was a beautiful morning indeed; the air was crisp to breathe while the light breeze against my face pushed me to run further. In spite of everything going on, I was grateful for my legs that allowed me to run fast and free. It was gratifying to be surrounded by the nature and mutually share the trail with other creatures who I believe have a common goal - to be better, happier and healthier than yesterday.
On most days, I struggle to enjoy my present..there are emails to be answered, projects to be completed, or things that need to be mended. My father constantly reminds me to keep my mind free at least few minutes in the morning and I tried to do so while running. I spent most of my energy consciously reminding myself to not think of anything else while the remaining energy was spent thinking about food - what the heck am I going to eat after my unofficial 10K? I don't know about you but I am a carb lover with a huge chocolate tooth. These waffles, double chocolate muffins, and whole wheat chocolate chip pancakes are some prime examples.
Happy Monday friends!
How do you guys deal with stress? I could really use some tips.
