After a busy day, I was hungry and while I have plenty of tasty options to cook in my freezer (fish, turkey, etc.), I was craving the squash creation I ate pretty much every other day this winter. So I made it and loved every bite.
I also just knew I was craving chocolate today and that something was going to need to be done about it. I had a few of the peanut m and ms I got for Easter this afternoon and some more after dinner. They might be perfection–nuts, candy, chocolate. I’m set!
I had a legit reason to dig in–it’s better than digging into the cake I made for tomorrow’s Sunday Funday dinner!
I was trying to recreate one I made a couple times when I was in the deep of my cake decorating obsession. Naturally, I’m a bit rusty. But I loved decorating this thing!
One rule I have for my cake decorating…
You must make a mess.
The bigger the better!
This might be far fetched, but I think decorating cakes is a way for me to get in the zone. I felt the same way painting that mug yesterday. I always assumed my kind of “zone” would be sports or training. But I think it’s actually making something. Time to get down to work on that latch hook maybe? Or to learn how to crochet? It helped that I was just OKAY with having a handful of m&ms instead of feeling bad for sneaking a few here and there while I was decorating (something that I used to beat myself up over when I’d decorate them!).
I can remember too many times when I’d “overeat” and then end up feeling miserable, staying home, and beating myself up! Tonight I am going to keep my plans with friends, probably have a drink or two, and remember that it’s all about balance. I am not bingeing, I’m not eating all junk food all the time, and I don’t have to feel ashamed! Freedom.
