A quick update on the mouthy lemon cake

Tuesday, October 22, 2013

I wanted anyone who read my blog from yesterday to know that I am gradually regaining my sanity and my will power. I know this because the lemon cake has stopped talking to me. I can look straight at it and not feel a thing. The last pretty piece went into my daughter's lunch bag this morning, so all that is left is a shell of a cake with no frosting on the sides and a thin layer of green fondant on top. I apologize to any fellow sugar addicts who might have trouble reading these descriptions. I just wanted to share the good news that my decision to write a long blog last night instead of giving in to the temptation to have more cake seems to have worked. Getting the truth about my briefly renewed sugar addiction up on the screen seems to have done the trick. This is all part of an ongoing process of forcing myself to a clearer awareness of what I am putting into my body. I have done a lot of unconscious and semi-conscious eating in my time, and feel very excited to have a new strategy for keeping myself awake and aware.

I hope this serves as a help to anyone out there who might be struggling.

All best,

    Thanks ELENNARE! I did just that yesterday during a bit of a low moment when I thought it might just be OK to have some of that cake. I whipped up a simple frozen banana, cocoa and almond milk smoothie that really hit the spot, at only about 140 calories and no sudden sugar high. Fresh strawberries work for me too. Thanks for stopping by! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Go you! emoticon

I don't know if this will help you at all, but I find that when I start craving sweets (cookies, cake, stuff like that particularly) if I eat more fruit I soon stop being interested in the empty sweet stuff.

    Sugar calls me too. I understand, so when I can resist it is a success. You were successful! emoticon
