|My divinity wasn't even CLOSE to this pretty...|
I also dared to bake this weekend.
One of the hardest things about being a healthier individual is that I can no longer bake whenever I want to. I used to bake cookies and brownies and cakes pretty regularly, and I miss the smells wafting through my house after a day spent in the kitchen. My office is having a "Cookie Exchange" today that I had signed up for so I knew I had to bake a bunch of items this weekend to bring in to my coworkers. Even though I am now in Nebraska instead of the office, I baked a few things for my husband to bring into work (we work at the same place). It was so much fun! I allowed myself a few indulgences, and was surprised at how quickly my body told me to stop. I used to be able to eat those treats until there was nothing left, but I was having a hard time eating more than a few pieces. I just can't handle sugar like I used to! Part of me was disappointed that I couldn't enjoy more of the sweets, but the majority of me was VERY happy. I didn't realize I'd made such progress.
Can anyone else believe that Christmas will be here this weekend? Doesn't it seem like 2010 just began? Where the heck does all the time go?
