Over the years I have walked into my kitchen and whipped up some pretty awesome desserts including:
This Brown Sugar Pound Cakebaked for a ladies brunch,
this German Sweet Chocolate Cake I made for a breakfast gathering,
and this Key Lime Cake I tried just because I wanted to.
All of these confections are amazing and I have an arsenal of more tasty looking recipes waiting for their turn in my oven. But first I have to make sure I have room for them around my waistline. In order to make that happen, I’m going to try something pretty radical for me. I’m going on a “D” word.
I’m currently reading Dr. Ian Smith’s Shred. After analyzing the first three chapters, I see that this “D” plan requires a generous dose of discipline. Discipline means that maybe I can’t bake my cake and eat it too for 6 whole weeks. It also means that when I visit my own blog, I might have to do so with someone on the phone who can talk me down from my impulse to bake.
Orrrr…maybe I can use this experience and try to make beautiful healthy foods to share. Yeah. Maybe I’ll do that. We’ll see.
