For one thing, you just KNOW you’ll eat more than you want to. It’s a given. Although the chocolate cake to yourself thing isn’t something to complain about during finals week.

Of course, you can just get one of these to help combat the calories. This dog is a MACHINE! She is ALWAYS ready for a workout. She bugged me all day while grading papers so I put on my running shoes and we went for a run in the light rain. Of course, halfway into the run it turned into a downpour and by the time I got home I looked something like….

The dog changed her mind halfway in to the run but it was too late so by the time we returned home I had squeaky clown feet from the amount of water in my shoes and I was carrying around ten extra pounds of water weight (seriously, I wore an oversized, baggy SWEATSHIRT running (I was cold)). And that sexy supermodel Instagram look with the rain pouring down and the perfect makeup? That’s a LIE!! I looked like a wet dog with a fifty pound sweatshirt, squeaky clown shoes and raccoon eyes. Yeah, that’s HOT!

At least there was some of this delicious banana bread waiting for me at the end of my run. The dog didn’t get any since she MADE me run.

The single serving size of this gluten free banana bread was the perfect portion for a post run in the cold workout.
