So much for the healthy banana bread I baked for tomorrow

Monday, May 28, 2012

I was done with eating for today and then decided that I would be proactive and bake this wonderful, healthy banana bread recipe for the week. Whole wheat flour, flax, bananas, low sugar, eggs, greek yogurt. I knew it was going to be good and it was. I decided to take a little corner of the banana bread, as it was cooling on the stove, and tasted it as I wanted to make sure that it turned out ok. Not that that was really necessary but I wanted to try this new healthy recipe and didn't want to deprive myself of just one little taste. I was so proud of myself for having baked myself potential breakfasts for the next week or so. I doubled the recipe and it was such a big slab that I thought one little piece is nothing.

So... I had one little taste and it was even better than I could have imagined. So moist and delicious with a lovely earthy banana taste. I ended up having a thin slice, then another thin slice and then another little piece and so on (avoiding the work that I should have been doing) until that little corner became a big corner. It looked so bad and I was worried that my partner would wake up from his nap and see how much I'd eaten so I cut it up into big pieces and put it away in the fridge so that it was out of my sight and so that no one would know how much I'd eaten. No one that is until I decided to post this blog.

Strangely enough, I still feel pretty good. I don't know why. I'm not really full...even though I'm sure I ate almost 2000 calories today. I'm hoping that all that whole wheat and flax will just go right through me. Tomorrow is a new day and I'll start off with a big glass of water and lemon. In these situations, I usually always tell myself that I'm still going to arrive at my destination, I just took a little detour and will be back on the path tomorrow. I'm actually thinking that once in a while, maybe once a week or so, I will indulge in a favourite treat just like I did tonight. With me, it's likely to be a healthy treat though as I don't go for sickly sweet desserts and unhealthy fare.

Onward and upward! I've blogged myself into a great mood again :)

    It is just such moments that we all struggle against. And kudos to you for confessing! It is a great thing that your indulgence was of a more healthy sort, but even better that you are beginning to recognize your tendencies. I believe you are progressing beautifully.
