Good morning beautiful people. I'm in such a fabulous mood this morning...
yesterday got in an awesome workout...food choices were extremely pleasurable, fun, flavorful and on point, floated in my pool a bit and I baked a cake...yes it was a lovely day.
The cake is a first run for our yearly bake off for work. I've won several years in a row and so the pressure is one.🙊🙈🙉
It was about 10pm when the cake was done...so I went downstairs to my son's apartment and said I baked a cake..and he said yeah and I said I need honest opinions..and he's got a great palette just like his momma...He had a piece and I told him why I made it and was gonna maybe try something else and he said...nope, make this...I could eat this whole thing...so of course I had to have a sliver and dang, it was amazing...
Wrapped it up and went to bed..woke up this morning and that simple, innocent looking bundt cake was sitting on the counter...so I cut off a chunk and brought it next door to my parent's house...later another hunk will be given to my son and DIL, gonna surprise another friend with a piece, and I will be bringing a piece to my girl Susan tomorrow. I will leave some for hubby for when he gets back from his boys weekend and my son will help finish it up I'm sure.
I know many people struggle when they have certain foods in their house and I'm extremely lucky that I have excellent self control more times than not and I can usually stop at just one piece of cake or one bite of whatever it is that I want but perhaps do not want to waste too many calories on...however, if I were to pull out my report cards from the grammar school days, it would tell a completely different story..😁🤣😂
Awesome workout this morning, graduation party later. I just had my chicken, spinach, tomato and feta cheese omelet, a hearty protein filled breakfast. I will eat something at the party, no idea what yet, since I have no idea what food they will have. I'll have a stash just in case, but I've planned to have a softshell crab for dinner and knowing that is on the menu I will not waste my time on anything that does not have the wow factor.
Have a spectacular Saturday!
