Stop, just stop

I have been on a bit of a baking spree. For some reason I have just felt like baking lately. Tuesday I made a lilikoi chiffon pie. Then on Thursday I decided to try making real French macarons. For the filling I wanted to try my hand at dulce de leche so I could make a salted caramel filling. Let me just say it all worked perfectly. While they did not look as perfect as these, they were amazing. The cookie was hardish on the outside, like an eggshell, and chewy in the middle and basically a meringue cookie. The inside was chewy and just a touch salty and totally delicious. Mine did not come out all the same size, as they should, because I'm not very adept at piping out of a bag. So they were odd shaped but absolutely delicious. I ate them. All. In 2 days. Not good. Also, they are almost pure sugar. Sugar and eggs and flour in the cookie, sugar and milk in the filling. Sugar. As I was eating some last night I thought if I don't have diabetes yet, these will give it to me. But I ate them. All!!! I am never making them again unless I am giving them away. They are never living in my house again.

So, that means, it's time to start over. Again. On a good note, today will be my 6th day of Crossfit this week. I'm trying it out just to see if I can do it. I know I won't be able to do it during the school year, but maybe I won't be so crazy about going too many days in a row. There is also a running clinic today, that should be fun.

So another new start. Oh well, that's what life is all about right?
