Overcoming a fear and a baking addiction

Fall means different things to different people. To me it is a chance to wear cute scarves and boots and to bake. And by bake I mean bake desserts and sweets for absolutely no reason other then I had some spare time and a cupboard full of sugar.

Yesterday I made 6 cinnamon sugar dipped baked donuts.



Today I noticed two plums in the fruit bowl that looked really ripe. Instead of just eating them and enjoying their sweet deliciousness, I chopped them up and baked them into a crumble.



Ryan and I had some as dessert with vanilla ice cream. It was really tasty.

It's easy to hang out in the kitchen and bake when you have this guy helping you.









I finally made it outside today for a short run. I was pretty hesitant about running outside on the killer sidewalks, but time did not allow for me to make it to the gym.

I was super scared and overly cautious while I ran on the sidewalk. Once I passed the scene of the accident I felt a little better, like I beat the sidewalk. Sidewalk 1 - Jess 1.

I finished 1.5 miles in 13:14 minutes and hurried home to get dinner finished since it was already past 6pm when I headed out for my run.

Fingers crossed this is the start of something good ... running multiple times this week and further overcoming my fear of tripping again.
