Tomorrow is my daughters 8th birthday so I made her birthday cake today.
I am so bloody pleased with myself because I didn’t lick the bowl, I didn’t lick the spoon either, I didn’t eat any of the chocolates even though I have shit loads left over!!
All I had was 2 chocolate fingers and they are only 1 syn each!!
I thought making this cake was going to be a huge challenge for me but do you know what…my willpower was stronger than my desire to eat chocolate!!
Of course I will have a slice tomorrow with my daughter because I don’t want my children thinking that they never see mummy eat cake because I’m always too worried about my weight! For me that is not sending out the right message to my girls. If they see me enjoying cake and also eating healthy most of the time it shows them that it’s ok - everything in moderation.
