So I did not cook this cake myself!
It was however delicious – after two weeks of healthy Mediterranean fare – this was a guilty little treat.
I am wondering how I am going to maintain the healthy eating habits of the past fortnight , when I succumbed so easily at the first hurdle!
Before I went on holiday my scales at home told me I was about 59 kg. When I weighed myself on the last evening of my holiday the electronic scales said 51 kg. I cannot believe I have lost 8 kgs in 13 days. I tend not to believe the scales. However when I weighed my suitcase on the same scales the reading was 20kg and while anxiously standing at the check-in counter the next day – bingo 20kg!
I am still not sure I believe the scales…only in that when I first stood on them they read 58 kg – more realistic I think!
And in any case I cannot think of how I would have lost 8 kg. My clothes still fit me!
What did I do for 13 days…?
Sleep for 8 hours a night. Walk to the beach every morning, swim/paddle in the sea, each three meals a day, have a seista on most afternoons, take a walk in the evenings. All nice and lovely but hardly the insanity workout.
So I am going to place my bets on 58 kgs (and I was correct!)
