Pastry regrets

Today I am trying to cope with a carbs hangover. I wish to put yesterday behind me. Although these cakes and pastries make for a nice picture, I am posting it here as a reminder of my bad behavior. It was not the fault of these buttery baked lovelies or the visiting family members, that I proceeded to continue down a dark path for the rest of Monday. Chocolate muffin. Chocolate bar. Marshmallows. Pizza. The only vegetable I recall was a slither of green pepper on a pizza slice. I may have even blacked some other eatings out of my mind, I think there was a lunch I missed off that grizzly list too. Who knows.

But any way today is a new day, the husband is in Taiwan for work and on the brighter side fabulous weather has inspired me to turn over a new lettuce leaf. Tofu and flash fried greens. Chicken and salad. Walking an extra mile a day. Hopefully he will come home to a proud wife that has a little give around her waistband. I bet he is reading this now shaking his head. My biggest battle will be with my sweet tooth but maybe I could just schedule in a single dessert slot on Sundays? But maybe its too soon.

I've been on a downward eating spiral too. It starts small and then gets out of control. And sweets are my kryptonite too. I could never give them up though. I just have to eat healthy 80% of the time to make up for that 20% of chocolately goodness. That and exercising. Just bought some new gym clothes because my old ones were sad and pathetic. Hope it motivates me to get my butt in gear!

Ha ha! I know the feeling, I struggle with my sweet tooth too, in fact as I sit here there's a little(?) bowl of jelly beans gradually being eaten.

Oooops all gone!

As it's confession time, I'll admit to a number (more than one, less than ten) of chocolate chip cookies, raspberries and cream, and a substantial piece of lime and coconut cake. Oh, and most of a bag of toffees. I think I need to lie down.

I couldn't regret a pastry as good looking as that one!

One shouldn't be too harsh on themselves. Allow yourself a treat and then sweat it off by doing something productive, like cleaning!
Or dancing. Dancing around is a lot more fun.
