What does one do when Iced/Snowed in?

One cooks & bakes & eats & watches movies & eats & eats & eats!!! Then one feels horrible for eating SO much!

Dear Body~
I know you have endured many hours of pain during my workouts at the gym. You've been tired & sore many times. You have heard me complain about you, pinch you, measure you, poke you, cry over you. I have put you through the ringer this weekend with all the food I've eaten...it's all my fault, I don't blame you this time. After all the food that has been put into my mouth this weekend---you are the one who will suffer the consequences. I'm sure after eating the chicken, mashed potatoes & rutabaga, stuffing, peas, rolls, Quiche, popcorn, a bottle of wine, bagels, eggs, chips, peanuts, strawberries, yogurt & granola, Chinese food, chips & salsa, guacamole, pico de gallo, Fajitas & a too die for CHOCOLATE ALMOND CAKE, you have gained at least 4 pounds. I know you're ashamed of me...I'm ashamed of myself for eating so much. But it was all so good and there was nothing else to do. I'm sorry to tell you that you will be extremely sore this week as I will be pulling overtime in the gym---I vow to go back to my healthier eating choices and portion control. I will not weigh you or measure you this week. I will not let you down again, because without you there is no ME!! Can I have just one more slice of cake?
Me


I made Julia Child's favorite dessert ever. Chocolate Almond Cake.
I am not one who usually craves/loves chocolate....but after this cake I think I am a huge fan. Seriously, TO DIE FOR!!! The frosting is incredible.

You can find the recipe online if you don't have her cookbook.

I do NOT want that recipe! I do NOT need any more temptations, thankyouverymuch.

I'll be with you in spirit at the gym; I need to get my own arse in gear and get back into the swing of things. As it is, I'll be taking the stairs all night at work tonight and tomorrow night and hope I burn at least a few hundred calories :)

Good luck!

With that hot husband of yours you should have plenty of things to keep you busy!

That one was for him. Did it make him blush?

I would write a similar letter to my body, except I don't have the weather to blame. And I have no intention of making it to the gym this week. I'll make it up to my body in cookies. ;) That always cheers it up.

That cake looks divine.
