That’s right, I have found my dieting nemesis. It goes by the delicious, deadly name of.. CAKE BATTER. I love to bake, I really do.. I don’t do it often though as my kitchen makes me want to stab small holes into people with a knitting needle. I did, however, bake last week on Thursday so I had some tasty treats to take to a friends for coffee we had planned. I could have been sensible but I chose flavour over calorie content. I found the most delicious recipe that involves adding not just butter, but oil to your cakes but it makes them so soft and tasty!
The cakes themselves I can leave alone but in the gooey, gloopy format of batter – I am weak. I made sure that bowl was clean, like I even found my scraper and I scraped that bowl the the last inch of it’s plastic life and I ate the batter. I am not ashamed (ok, a little ashamed) – but it was so damn good. SO DAMN GOOD! I then had to try a cake, of course… and then to be polite I had to eat one while I was at my friends!
To be honest I was good for the rest of the day, I barely ate anything with calorie content but apparently that was enough to send me into a bit of a spin, and ok, I did lose.. I lost 0.5 lb, which is so much better than a gain of course, but it did set me back a little.
It’s my own fault, my willpower can be shocking – especially at weekends if I go for a drink, I can’t just stop at one! Last weekend proves this – went in to a speakeasy word of mouth secret bar that had 10 coctktails on the menu, of course we had to try them all. I only had three full ones but then I went onto another bar and had 3 more, and I can’t even remember what I had at the last one but it involved pints of cider. BAD BAD BAD! The first cocktails also included things like butter, and jam… so yeah, it was kinda like eating a really weird alcoholic cake – except not.
I had fun though, and I suffered yesterday and just wanted to sleep all day – but I think its out of my system now, the caking, the drinking.. I just want to be healthy and lose more this week, so hold onto your hats, VEGETABLES, I am coming for you.
