The cake - What shall I do?

Thursday, September 09, 2010

I´ve started teaching ceramics at my home once a week. And another place once a week.
Yesterday at my home one suggested that we should make a cake for every time.
And she would like to be the first.
I and another explained we never bake cakes.
It is a Danish and maybe a international tradition to eat cake when gathering.
I fear that afterwards I will sit alone with rest of the cake.
I have some solutions - What do you think?
a. I can throw the rest of the cake in the garbage
b. I can say the person who brings shall bring the rest home.
c. I can say the person who brings something can bring other things than cakes for instance.. I have an appletree and a juicemachine and right now I can make beautiful red applejuice. It could also be some fruit.
Is solution B. rude?
Solution A. There is a reason why I´m fat. I have a big appetite and this will not be nice but maybe neccesairy.
5 of the 8 are quite fat. But this does not have to be their issue
What would you do?

    They pay for the ceramic lesson and this must be my focus.
Actually the leader of the school came about some accounts wednesday and brought a cake.
Yesterday evening I throw it in the garbage can without any feeling except that it was part of housecleaning.
Had it been nuts or chocolate it had been a different situation for me. I feel for the solution about a mini piece to taste and then telling it is OK to bring homemade bread or carrot slices or fruit instead of cake.
One bag of peanuts is about 1000 calories. A tiny cake of ½ cm is maybe 200 calories. emoticon Usually I am so occupied teaching so I can -forget- eating the cake.
It was a good experience to thrash the cake emoticon

    I suspect that if your attendees understood that you would flush the cake down the toilet if they didn't take it home, they would not leave it (no one wants to "waste" food!).. You can even invite them to watch it as a "solemn ceremony of liberation" before they leave.

You wouldn't have to justify the action except as self preservation and with forewarning.

One piece of cake isn't what does me in.... it's the not STOPPING at one piece.

    You need to explain to them why the cake needs to leave your home. Tell them that you are trying to lose weight and that there also should be a healthy option if snacks are going to be in place. That way you can eat and not have to indulge in the cake. It is fine to tell people that you do not want cake left in your home. Send that cake out of there.

Back again to Spark people

Tuesday, September 07, 2010

To day I walked a 45 minute tour
And for the first time after a long pause put exercise in Spark People.
It is a storm to day so I ran down to the sea to take some photos
And just look at the waves.
I also got some photos of some flowers and an old farm
And picked some black berries.
When I came back I saw a sentence by Søren Kierkegaard, the famous Danish philosopher:
Never lose the happiness of walking.
Walking can nurture big thoughts
and take away even the worst sorrows
In Danish:
"Tab for Alt i Livet ikke Lysten til at gå.
Jeg går mig hver Dag det daglige Velbefindende
til og går fra enhver Sygdom;
Jeg har gået mine bedste Tanker til,
og jeg kjender ingen Tanke så Tung, at
man jo ikke kan gå fra den."
Søren Kierkegaard (1847)

My new home

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

The house
When I bicycle to the stores - I bicycle along the seaside..
I am very happy that I moved to this place.
I see possibilities in life
Where my former home was filled with barriers
I have been away from Spark People a long time as it took incredibly
long time to get entry to the internet
My weight is about the same but I am lighter anyway as I am so happy I have moved.
Some of my good friends have already been here to visit me although it took almost 3 hours with public transportation..
People I have met around here are friendly I have joined a rowing club
And soon I will start teaching ceramics
There is 2 apple trees so I have bought a fruit and vegetable presser so I will have completely fresh juice



Now I´ve moved

And I´m happy
But witout internet untill august 18th


Slim and slender - How

Saturday, June 26, 2010

How do slender people do?

All males in my family and 2 of my sisterinlaws and my love are slim and slender


eat slowly
Are physical active
are fussy about food - it shall taste good or be of good quality - This differs
Focus on other things than food

What have you noticed - What is good for you?
