Call me mental...

Saturday, June 01, 2013

... but if I have a really good book, there is nothing more exciting than reading through an entire night... which I did last night... I went to bed at 5am... I regretted it later in the day when I had to get up again... somehow small children don't seem to understand why mum had to read until 5am and would like to stay in bed until noon... ou well... I was a tat cranky, but only a little I think...

AND I lost 1.1kg... absolutely thrilled about that... 71.1kg... almost jumped the 71s entirely, but not quite, somehow the 70kg mark seems so much closer.

I was busy making offspring's birthday cake today... and I have to confess, I did feel a little deprived. It's a little cake, not many people will be there tomorrow to actually eat it. It looks a bit like a kid's version of the "death star" and it's hollowed out and filled with marshmallow cream. So I made all of that today and didn't lick a spoon, or bowl or taste anything... once I accidentally licked a tiny bit off my finger before washing my hands, but apart from that... nothing. It feels weird to bake a cake knowing I won't eat it.... parts of me wanted to rebel and a voice whispered "common, just one lick... just for testing" but I knew it wouldn't stay with one lick... so not at all is so much easier than practicing moderation. And somehow it also felt liberating, usually when baking a cake I'm always aware of calories and think of how I could modify it... but as I won't be eating it, I didn't bother with it at all

I am grateful that I do have some self-control though, even if I still have to work on it to improve, yet there is a little stubborn steak in me as well, and now and then it really is helpful... like when baking a cake, filling it with marshmallow fluff, iceing it with even more marshmallow fluff and topping it with M&M.

    Well done on the weight loss! You're so close now to under 70! That's exciting!! And great willpower to not lick anything whilst cooking! The cake looks great too. Actually all things you cook look great! You have a talent. I'm hopeless at cake decorating!
