Firstly, it’s my birthday!!!!! I have turned 33 years old today and I believe I am the healthiest I have ever been in my life!!
So here’s a little smile from the birthday girl!
Today is also Thursday and that means it’s weigh in day! Considering that I am (and this is TMI) in that time of the month I am pleased with today’s weigh in! 234.8 lbs:
That’s a loss of 2.0 lbs since last Thursday’s weigh in and a 38 lb loss overall! I am so close to 40 lbs – but what I’m excited most about is hitting those 220s….soon 🙂
I made a low carb chocolate cake for my birthday last night. I made it last night because if you’ve ever made a “from scratch” chocolate cake you know that it tastes much better after it’s sat for 24 hours. The recipe called for coconut flour, coconut oil, almond milk, lots of eggs, unsweetened chocolate, erythritol (actually Pyure, but I used erythritol!), vanilla, etc….my batter looked like this:
It was very runny and very grainy. I have never used coconut flour or coconut oil, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Of course, I taste tested this morning…and it tasted like a Mounds Bar…you know – Almond Joy’s got nuts, Mounds Don’t – well, that was a bit of a shock to me. I mean, I don’t mind coconut, but it’s not my favorite thing in the world and when I’m craving chocolate, I would never buy a Mounds Bar…
So, while the cake is good and certainly low carb (4 net carbs per serving – double layer round cake, 8 slices, with Pillsbury Sugar Free frosting), it isn’t going to cut it. I am not going to be satisfied by this cake…so I think I might cheat tonight and have some real chocolate cake! I’m still thinking about that…
Anyway, I hope you all have a great day!!!
