It is such a pretty day today!! I love waking up to crisp sunshine…
Life on the BTD is still going well. I’ve really taken to the checklist format to track food for the week. It is so telling to know what I haven’t had enough of yet; my main problem is still getting seafood into my diet. I’ve also found that I’m having trouble eating enough of the grains and starches. But after being back in the pool this week, my body is starting to catch up to the need for fuel!!
So the tradition around here is that I make the birthday dessert for everyone else, made to order. Well, I don’t really care for store bought sweets, and no one else really bakes…so I get to make my own b’day treat (though my bestest friends pay for the ingredients!). I have this problem--I finish all of whatever is made or opened (when it’s junkie food…chips, cookies, cake, etc.). So this time I’ve made little cheesecake cupcakes!! They are easier to give away and even better, I can control how much I eat. If I have three or four over a weekend, it’s about the same as a large piece of cheesecake. Hopefully the junk food hangover won’t be so bad this go around!
