The stress of my weight loss resolution led to relentless binge eating. I’m not complaining. After making Sandra Dallas’s blueberry coffee cake recipe I needed to generously sample the goods. I couldn’t have done that if I was sticking to some boring resolution. If I’d had any coffee cake left I would have taken some to church yesterday to share. Who am I kidding? I planned on NOT having any left to take to church yesterday.
I love food and I hate to exercise. I figure by the time I make all the recipes in the Western Writers of America Cookbook: Favorite Recipes, Cooking Tips, and Writing Wisdom I’ll look like Bib the Michelin Man. When I think about it, the only exercise that has ever worked for me is occasionally getting up in the morning and jogging my memory to remind myself of exactly how much I hate to exercise. I tried running. I hated it. I hear walking can make a difference. I don’t think that’s entirely true. If it’s so good for you why does my mailman look like Jabba the Hut with a quirky thyroid?
I joined a health club once, but everything there seemed too complicated. There’s nothing quite as humiliating as finishing a thirty-minute workout on a piece of gym equipment only to have the instructor tell you you’ve been sitting on it backward. So, there’s nothing left to do but continue making the rest of the recipes in the Western Writers of America Cookbook: Favorite Recipes, Cooking Tips, and Writing Wisdom and not worry about anything else. Next up, I tackle Sandra’s zucchini bread recipe and look into whether or not the Michelin tire man has a clothing line for women.
