Pastry Instructor and Diet...Bad Combo
Thursday, June 17, 2010
Made it through today.
I teach beginning baking at a local community college and this was their first night in the kitchen. Cookies...My downfall. They made both Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip, while the class in the Food Prep kitchen next to us made Chicken Fingers and French Fries. Boy was it all tempting. I drink several glasses of water to fill up my stomach and had a piece of gum. It is hard to resist when everyone is offering you food and the whole kitchen is filled with the aroma of fresh baked cookies. But I did.
When I got home I rewarded myself with some carrot sticks, no fat ranch dip, and 3 vanilla wafers. At 1335 calories for the day and proud of myself.
