I have a secret to tell ya - well, it's more of a "no duh" kinda secret.
All these treats have made me FAT! I've gained a few pounds over the winter, but I dismissed it and just slipped into sweat pants. As the spring came around and temperatures got warmer, I just slipped on my comfy shorts. I did notice that I was back up a size on my capri's but just figured that I can easily drop a few pounds and all would be better again.
However, I had a real slap-in-the-face when the family went for a photo session and when I saw the pictures, I was shocked!! I could not believe that was ME!
So, I am now on the fourth week of my DIE.T! Yes, a hard core diet.
I am following the diet that is in the 4 Hour Body Book and living from one week to the next. I just completed my third "Cheat Saturday" where I can eat ANYTHING I want to! The next 6 days are all protein and veggies. As a result, I am now only baking on Fridays and Saturdays.
I could not believe how much I was licking my fingers, the beaters, the spatula, the mess on the counter...
(It's so hard to bake and not lick your fingers. Try it sometime. Record it. You'll be shocked.)
And then, once something was baked, I had to try them!
Now, I don't limit myself to taste testing, I just allow myself to do it on Saturday ONLY.
So, on Saturday, I had quite a few of these little brownie beauties.
I found the recipe here.
These were some delicious brownies that were the perfect pop-in-your-mouth over and over again size.
I topped them with chocolate butter cream and was in chocolate heaven.
That's where I want to go when I die - Chocolate Heaven.
Until we leave for Hawaii on the 17th, I'm in diet hell : ( Well, I guess it's not so bad. One week at a time.
Don't even ask how I got the frosting to pile up like that, 'cause my answer is PFL!! Pure Fairy Luck!
