I think it's fair to say that over the past few months I've well and truly overindulged on the food front. How many of you are (like me) starting to panic about the impending spring/summer months? With rising temperatures comes the inevitable shedding of layers and exposing of skin, which will undoubtedly uncover the true cost of all those extra portions I've consumed over the winter period. Help..............?!!!!
I could reconcile all the grazing I've been doing whilst the days were darker & shorter, and the weather miserable, but now the sun is more frequently peeping it's head out from behind the clouds, I'm reminded that there's little time to waste if I want to shed a few pounds.
Thanks to my lovely Mum introducing me to the delights of M&S Jam Bakes recently, I've managed to find a new addiction. I generally do all my own home baking of cakes & biscuits, but I happened to try one of these yummy little bites whilst visiting my parents and that was it, I was hooked.
Unfortunately I'm not one of those people that can eat what they like and avoid putting on weight. Sadly, I just have to look at a cake and I put on half a stone. A slight exaggeration may be, but truth be told I only have two vices, yummy food & yummy yarn! I don't drink, nor smoke, so I think it only fair that I should be able to indulge in the odd cake or 2, or 3.......
"Everything in moderation Sharron", I hear you cry. You're right, and I shall endeavour to remember that next time I reach for the biscuit barrel.
One last thought before I go, for those that watch 'One Born Every Minute', don't you just love that bit in the opening sequence when the lovely Linda Abbott, long serving midwife at the LGI say's in her broad Yorkshire accent "we keep calm and eat cake". That was my mantra, guess I'll have to find another one now............
