I awoke this morning expecting a medical procedure later today. I had planned for it and I was prepared for it. After a great workout at the gym (on what’s sure to become my new best friend, the arc trainer), I came home to bake muffins for the teachers’ welcome back breakfast.
When it comes to baked goods, I subscribe to the theory that it's important to taste as you go along. Okay, for me it's less about checking for taste and texture, and more about Mmmmm! I love cookie dough! Anwyay, knowing that I wasn’t allowed to eat, I called in a surrogate taster. As much as I adore dough and batter, I knew that I had to not eat it, so I didn’t eat it.
And then I found out that the medical procedure isn’t today.
What a crazy feeling! I’d just learned that it is possible for me to prepare baked goods without sampling along the way!
So if I can do it when I have to, I am capable of doing it any time.
I feel like I’m on the brink of new understanding of my food issues and new strength which will help me win the battle.
