Makin' Cakes!

Last night I stayed up and made some cakes. Yes, that's right...Queen of cornball said yarn cakes! I wound the casscade yarn for my wicked sweater. As I was winding my yarn all I could think of was cake! Any kind of cake. Chocolate fudge cake, bundt cake, red velvet cake, coconut cake, spice cake, white cake with orange dreamsicle icing, strawberry short cake, and in my own desperation even fruit cake! I heard you shudder! Yup, can you tell I'm on a diet? I have to tell you one of my most guarded secrets...I am addicted to sugar! I love it! I adore anything with sugar as the first ingredient. My second addition is white flour. You know...the stuff cookies and cakes and pastry and pasta is made with! That combination has served me well! If anyone is counting about 25lbs well. UGH! On monday I cut out all of the sugar and carb's from my diet. Because of that sometimes my mind wanders to happier times like this.....

Yes, I can make a mean strawberry shortcake! Whoa, I got to snap out of that one!

O.K. back to reality. This is a funky Malabrigo yarn. Love the colors don't you? Remind you of anything?

Mmmmmmm blueberry pie, Want a piece? Oooppp's did I say that? LOL!
O.K. I promise to be good. I girl can dream now can't she?
Hope all your dreams are as good and tasty as mine.
Better get back to the sweater I just cast on. The color, strawberry!

Well, speaking as a true colorblind fiber and sweet sugar food addict, I firmly agree with you LOL.Now, for the fun part..kick in the fact that I am diabetic and well, so much for shit storms 'eh LOL.

Hang in there, good to know I'm not the only one on a diet..(well, trying to be...I've actually gained 8 lbs since I started trying to lose it!)

Seriously though....Hope you have an easier time than I've been having :-) I wish you well!

Maybe this will be more motivation for me...(I've got about 20 to lose).

I decided today that everytime I exercise, I can download 1 song from iTunes (I need some more motivation..which requires rules for me). I told the hubby, and he thought that it might get to expensive..hahahaha...I assured him that it would surely never cost more than 3 dollars a week...ha! 5 if I'm dreaming.

Cinnamon Girl, we're on the same wavelength! I've been off sugar and white flour for two weeks now. It's been difficult...but it's amazing how much better I feel!! I support you totally. We can swap pep talks if you want. One thing that has helped me a lot is unsweeted hot cocoa. It's a lot like unsweetened coffee (which I gave up too...argh!)and it's actually good for you. I make mine with 2/3 soy milk and 2/3water and a tbsp. of unsweetened cocoa powder. It's like I'm cheating, but I'm not. It's bitter like coffee, but reminscent of cocoa. Just a suggestion. Good luck!! I'm rootin' for ya!!
