Today I ate my feelings.
Did I enjoy what I ate? Not really.
Do I think I'll do it again? Probably.
There's one thing I'm adamant about doing as I share my journey to health, and that is being real.
No-one is perfect.
It's been an emotional week.
And, yes, I know I have said there are no excuses, but there are reasons...
Like anything, it's simple when you know how.
For years and years I was a yo-yo dieter. I'd lose 5kg, 10kg or even more at one point, then I'd put it back on.
Why? Because I restricted what I was eating. I made myself eat things I didn't like because they would help me to lose weight.
Guess what happened? I felt resentful, deprived, and I didn't enjoy the process. How could I if I was forcing myself to eat things I hated.
This time I'm doing things differently. I eat chocolate cake!
1 cup almond meal
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 tbsp sugar free maple syrup
Water if necessary to thin the mixture.
1. Combine dry ingredients.
2. Mix in eggs, water and maple syrup.
3. Cook in butter.
4. Serve with your favourite toppings (as you can see, mine is butter, sugar free maple syrup, plus a little lemon juice).
