I was seriously not looking forwards to Monday because after my eeerrrmmm "relaxed" approach to food this weekend I thought I would be fighting all sorts of wheat and sugar cravings. Well I managed to stay away from wheat nicely (pat on the back) but sugar ..... well, you may remember the pecan nut pie, of which I landed up having 1.5 slices with G&B vanilla ice cream AND clotted cream nom-nom-nom :-) TO be fair I have done weights and got on Freddie today so I think that has helped A LOT!
Do you watch?
Have you ever been?
Who are you supporting this year in mens single and ladies single?
Then Tuesday morning came around and the wheels started to wobble and by Tuesday evening when I did a trial shortbread baking run for the kids school fete I was face deep in wheat and sugar and its been ugly ever since.

I would like to just say that I am very proud of my baking efforts (not the eating thereof) as I am generally pretty rubbish when it comes to baking.
I have been lamenting about a lesson I learnt this week and this is it:
My cravings are TOTALLY food related. Last week I ate "clean" (for me that means no sugar, wheat, yeast and minimal dairy) and I was fine. This week I have gorged and not been clean at all and it is a self perpetuating cycle, one in which I crave more of the bad stuff and physically I am drained of every ounce of energy. Its a very clear, real experiment on myself, a lesson I really do need to sit up and take notice of.
So here goes cold turkey ;-)
Welcome new followers, I hope you are enjoying my blog as much as I enjoy writing it. I'm not always this erratic ... oh! no. I am. oops. sorry ;-)
