Chocolate cake and self sabotage
Monday, June 07, 2010
Last week before I went away I had a baking spree, baking as in making cakes. I like baking and I like eating what I bake so I rarely indulge in the baking part to prevent me indulging in the eating part;-) My son was going to my brother's for the week so that's where the baking was destined for. Great stuff I get to do what I enjoy without going off plan my super thin brother and his family get cake. A win-win situation.
Why did I have to have another baking spree this Sunday? The cakes were going nowhere and I was going to be tempted. Worst of all I made chocolate cake now I seriously love chocolate cake. Grrrrrh I'm sabotaging myself again.Why? I've lost 7lbs 6 of those since I got focused 6 weeks ago.
I'm feeling quite cranky with myself as the cake is in the kitchen calling me and my resolve was slipping. I'm feeling slightly stronger now I've written this.
I need a plan: I think I should go and hide the cake or better yet get my son to hide it. Sounds like a plan to me.
My amazingly supportive 14 y o son has now hidden the cakes so I can go back into the kitchen and make a cup of coffee without fear of temptation. He will eat the cake out of my sight too, that is what he does when he gets sweets and chocolate.
Let this be a lesson to me stop with the baking, or if you absolutely must bake make things you hate coconut cake for example.
