A Treat!

Friday, May 8, 2009

I went out for ‘coffee and desert’ last night with hubby and usually would just have a raspberry tea and let him eat the desert and it never bothers me but I just thought oh I’ll have a little bit, and I did pretty well, we had a custard square which is not like your bakery one it’s a homemade one and omg it’s good. I only ate the filling with plenty of cream so no icing and no pastry. The filling is the best part very Moorish but I only had a little bit, then a decaf flat white which I haven’t had for soo long, I’m not a big coffee drinker. It was a nice little treat but also a nice little reminder of why a don’t eat sweet food, the headache and fogginess that followed and even today I’m feeling a little off. I’m pretty sensitive to sweet stuff so I’m paying for it today in how I’m feeling.

Today my eating has been great though which it normally is, Breakfast was an omelette filled with spinach, feta and bacon om nom!! And lunch was frozen raspberries with cream and a scoop of protein powder blended up, tastes like frozen berry yoghurt, it’s soo good, I topped it with slivered almonds and grated 85% choc. I haven’t had the desire to eat anything off plan so that’s great, it obviously hasn’t triggered cravings so far which is what I was worried about so we’ll see. It’s my birthday on Tuesday so I think I will make some of my berry cheesecake for that. Weight is good, down to 82kg so wohoo, but I’m not weighing again for a week!


  1. Hurrah, good to have you back! I've missed your posts. I hope the business setting-up is going well. Congrats for keeping on plan, and on the weight. Keep it up!

  2. I find that the longer I eat paleo/primal, the easier it is for me to have a treat without triggering cravings. Congrats on the weight!!

  3. Thanks Judith :) Yeah the business is going well, just waiting for sign writers at the moment, it all takes time!

    Hey Primal Mama, i'm hoping over time that I will be able to have a treat and not feel like arse, but it's kinda good though because it makes me not want to go crazy with the high carb food.

  4. Hey Shell well done!! I think your weight loss is amazing.

    I too am amazingly sensitive to sugary foods and foods high in "good" carbs. I have the mental fog and end up feeling like something off "one flew over the cuckoos nest" when when they get a labotomy!!

    Is it certain amounts of sugary foods that effect you or any?

    Love the blog xx

  5. Hey Andy, Thanks for the encouragement :) Great mental picture btw lol. It's really any sugary or high carb foods, I can have some 85% choc and raspberries and not feel the effect but I usually have it after dinner so that may help slow the sugar in those foods. Yesterday I had a little vegie soup that my auntie made, it had barley and kumara in it and I totally noticed a blood sugar rise. So I can't tolerate a lot of sugar, damn frustrating sometimes!
