Cursed With A Sweet Tooth
I have a confession...it is 11:00 pm and I just made chocolate fudge brownies about an hour ago! I know I should be more health-conscious but they're so yummy! I must admit that I don't have the greatest self-control in this area of my life. I had a Dr. appointment last week and, hallelujah, I'm back to my pre-baby weight! Unfortunately, I've been using that as an excuse to continue eating the way that I do. I basically eat what I want, when I want. It's a bad habit that started when I was pregnant and has continued through the 7 1/2 months since JJ was born. Oh, well. I guess I'd better just enjoy it while I can because I know that one day this will all have to change.
Another bad habit I've accquired is baking when I'm bored. Since I'm home with JJ most of the day, I find myself getting cabin fever so I have to find something to do. I love to bake and I love sweets so it works out well for me - sort of. And my husband loves all the homemade goodies but doesn't like the consequences that come with it! I need to find healthy, yummy goodies to bake. That way, we'll all be happier and healthier! I could certainly use suggestions. Cooking and baking are 2 things that I really enjoy and I love trying new things. All ideas are welcome!
