SUGAR CRAVING...

I am finding it harder and harder by the day to stop myself from diving face first into something like this:
Stew (bless him) mentioned dessert the other night... and I simply have NOT been able to think of anything else since then.... I WANT... NEED.... MUST HAVE REALLY SOON... something sweet or I am gunna to go MENTAL.


I am going to see my doctor again today after a 3 week break... I am expecting him to say he doesn't need to see me again... I'm feeling much better in myself now. Most stress factors that have been doing my head in over the past few months are behind me now... and some I have just had to accept as things I cannot change or do anything about.

"Situational Depression" is something I must be prone to... as this is the second time in 10 years I have felt that low... hopefully I am over the worst of it. (well... thanks to dem pretty wee pills) LOL!

ONWARD.....

Ummmm... THESE look delicious too...
I DID mention I'm ***drooling*** eh????

KATE mentioned WW Jelly... and I thought... Hmmmm , yep I'm sure I've got some of those:
AND I have....so I made some....
They don't look anywhere near as pretty as that chocolate cake (*sigh*)... but it might work. How long do they take to set now? Will it happen faster if I watch them??? *tapping me fingers on the counter*.... OH hold on... they have to go in the fridge eh? Dum dee dooo.....
Well... my doctor is VERY pleased with me... he thinks I finally have my head screwed on right and am dealing with life's stresses much better.... and he said it is probably due in part to the pretty wee pills... and part due to me working through my issues in a better way. It's all good. I don't have to go back for 2 months! Yaaaaa.
It's now early afternoon and I'm taking a moment to relax... I had lunch in town... and indulged my craving with a small apple strudel pastry. I'm happy now. *smiles*
The family is having roast chicken for dinner... me? JELLY... ha ha ha! Biggest question of the day: Which flavour????
End of Day: and I caved in and had chicken... I just could not resist! I had covered the whole chook in a Honey/Soy Marinade and it was JUST SO DELCIOUS! I had chicken and peas with gravy made from the marinade. *drool*... you just can't beat a good roast chook. Don't even feel like jelly now... might later though! lol
nite nite.

  5. OH MY GOSH!!! WILL YOU LOOK AT ALL THAT YUMMY STUFF!! HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO US??!!? I made a Red Velvet Cake last night with Cream Cheese Icing...yum...for company tonight. I'm sorry about you feeling down. Just think of each new day that you can make your own. A new slate to fashion any way you please. You can decide how and what you are going to that day and leave the past behind, it's can't be undone...but a NEW day!! Now THAT's something else!! ...debbie

    How about some Weight Watchers jelly? That usually keeps me going!

  9. My sympathy for the cravings and blahs and headache. So not fair.

    I'm not too fond of the artificial sweetener in WW jellies but they serve a useful purpose. I really enjoy them when I add plain Greek yoghurt, ( not too much), to chopped up jelly or sometimes a topping made by mashing a piece of banana to a creamy consistency with yoghurt or my favourite, fresh cream whipped with the tiniest smidgeon of sugar.

    Enjoy your jellies and this craving will pass.

  11. Chris, the food tastes better in the head! Have a nibble if that will stop you going nuts. Just don't go on a binge. Stay strong.

    STOP TORTURING YOURSELF! Just go to the bakery and get a small chocolatey thing just to get rid of the craving. If you try the sugar free lollies, don't eat too many of them or you will fart non-stop! (speaking from experience!)

  13. Weight Watchers makes these little cakes that are great when you want a little something sweet. They come in a box of about 8, and have several flavors, like chocolate, lemon, and carrot cake to name a few. I think they are only like 1 or 2 points each and they are really good. Do you have those over there in NZ? If not, let me know and I'll send you some. They are not like that decadent chocolate cake up there at the top of your post, but they sure won't do the damage that will do, either!

    XOXO,

    Cyndi

    And you could always make a couple up with vodka and have jelly shots all afternoon!!!

    I have a cake recipe I made up that's no fat and very low carb - will hunt it out and send it to you! But I am at work at the moment (ARRGH!) and will try and remember when I get home...

  18. Did you hear about the research study that said people who eat chocolate are more depressed than those who don't? That made NO sense to me at all. Chocolate makes me VERY happy!

    Glad you got a good report from the doc. YEAH YOU!

    Cheers,
    jj

    I swear I think you and my wife are on the same wicked wavelength. I started running yesterday after a few month layoff and my wife proceeds to bake cookies...

    Just more proof that I am not allowed to lose weight while she is pregnant.

    Maybe this is something I should blog about.

    (I'll email ya in a few days.)
