{skinny} triple chocolate fudge banana muffins

This week, I was supposed to take a week-long internet and phone fast… It sounded like a great idea just to get my mind off of stuff and focus on school. Because DOOOOOOOWN goes my science grade to the depths of the sea. {just kidding. It's not really that horrible. promise.} Anyways. Sunday night I decided I would probably die of anti-socialness if I didn't have my phone. Now… we're at a week-long phone and internet fast with phone. Make sense? 

Monday came and went and I was feeling so good about myself. But when Tuesday rolled around, I was going to pass out of boredom, and I thought to myself "I HAAAAAAAVE to check Facebook. What if so-and-so commented on my status? or wrote on my wall? I wouldn't want them thinking I hate their stinking guts, now would I?" of course not. 

So I, being the super great person that I am, and only thinking of my friends in this situation- toddled online. I had like 5 notifications. But nothing important. OH WELL! Might as well go on Twitter and see if anyone's tweeted me… nope. Then I sat on Pinterest until 10:30… On a school night. 

Moral of the story… I'm really great at setting goals for myself and sticking to them.  


In other news, I made muffins!! These babies are over-the-top amazing. When my mom took a bite, she said they might be a little underdone… But they weren't. That my friends would just be the crazy amount of banana chunks and pockets of milk and dark chocolate. Heck yah! How they are healthy is toooooootally beyond me… But if you were to set a pan of fudgey muffins in front of me and tell me they're healthy, I would not turn them down.
