Next Tuesday, we're having Health Assessments at work. It's one of those "for insurance purposes" things where they test for cholesterol, weight and blood pressure. I tend to have a backwards mentality when it comes to things like this. Knowing that the time to be good is upon me, I tend to have double cheeseburgers and milkshakes, extra helpings and brownies.
I know it's not right....but I can't or..don't want to help it. I always preach portion control which means a cookie in each hand. I've tried smaller plates, eating less food at more sittings throughout the day, being mindful of each bite. I've taken to the treadmill and yes, I must admit, it does feel better being a few pounds lighter....but wait! I'm working on a Dessert Cookbook!
Perhaps, in the future, I'll look at a salad-seafood-fruits & veggies cookbook - but in the meantime I'll be sampling my Chocolate Truffle Torte and Buttery Ginger Gems. The good news is that my cholesterol and blood pressure have always been low...the bad news could be that, as Maxwell Smart would say, I'll "miss it by that much"!
Wish me luck,
