Hump Day Delight

Happy Hump Day! Congratulations for making it this far! We decided to have a mini midweek celebration, and what better way than with cupcakes?! You have to reward yourself for making it this far! It is so important to provide yourself with a little positive reinforcement, no matter how small, to reward yourself for all your hard work and motivate you to get through the last two days. Doing something good for yourself is a great form of self care, which is SO important in keeping stress and anxiety at a minimum.

With this in mind, we decided to have a sister night and bake up a tasty treat. We hit up one of our favorite websites, SkinnyTaste, for a skinny, pink cupcake (hubby was out of town). These cupcakes were absolutely delicious, super moist, and low fat, since almost all the oil was replaced with applesauce (which makes them super moist)! We were definitely left wanting more, but we figured one was sufficient for an itsy bitsy indulgence.

Hope you find a way to reward yourself, too! If so, we’d love to hear about it!
