Daily battle

Saturday, February 05, 2011

Today I won the Battle of Banana Bread. Yesterday it beat me. I couldn't throw it away after the Valentine Tea at my Home Extension meeting, so I rewrapped it in the worn out foil I brought it in, and carried it home. I should have given it away, or thrown it away after the meeting, but couldn't or wouldn't, take your choice. Last night I ate several slices with glasses of milk (1%) !! So did that make it a healthy choice? Nooooooooooooooo. I went to bed with a tummy ache.
My "left-over"brain told me first thing this morning to "finish off" the Banana Bread for breakfast and have done with it. My "right-on" brain knew better. I left it in the Tupperware home I had given it, and had a normal, protein rich breakfast. The tug-of-war went on, however, until I finally removed the container from the fridge. I took the lid off and wasn't sure how big a piece to cut, when I began to wonder if the squirrels would like it as much as they did the angel puff cookies from a few weeks ago. (But that was another blog).
So I went to the front door with my container and began to break off pieces and tossed them onto the mounds of snow. An hour later now, it looks like most of the cake is gone. Somewhere there's a party going on, and they're eating without me, and that's a good thing.
My temptation has left the building for the day.

    I love homemade banana bread also! When I want something sweet, I usually try to give most of it away. I had not thought about feeding it to the squirrels - thanks for the good idea!

    That is wonderful, the birds had a party and you have warm feeling of feeding them in the winter and no tummy ache besides. You remind me of me with baked goods. I feel better to eat them and be done with then to throw them out. Hence my weight loss journey.

    I did the exact same thing last night with a piece of yellow cake. I woke up this morning with a stomach ache. I don't know why I can't say NO - I keep thinking if I eat it then It will be gone and won't temp me. How stupid is that. Good for you for giving it to the squirrels
