I finally figured out what happened that made my cake fall! Actually it was my daughter in NJ that brought it to my attention. But it's my blog and I want to take the credit. I live at 3100 feet above sea level and I keep forgetting that when I bake. Soooo, I looked at the box of angel food cake mix and saw the "high altitude" directions in little itsy bitsy teeny weeny type. So when I make the next one I'll follow those directions and it will probably be fine. I guess I didn't think about that because I don't bake very often and never have. I'm just a cook(er) not a baker at heart.
Eating has been on plan for this past week. Except the weigh-in day at the restaurant. Think I will rethink my splurge days and only have them on weeks that I show a loss as a reward instead of every week. They don't seem as important to me right now as they have been in the past. I've even been doing really well in the "snacking after dinner" respect. I've been trying to make sure I eat enough at dinner to get full and just talk to myself all evening telling myself that I'm not hungry and asking why should I eat if I'm not hungry. Then I allow myself a healthy dessert about 1-2 hours after dinner and sometimes that is all I want but most of the time I want something salty so I have a small 100 calorie pop corn or 100 calories worth of pretzels just before bedtime. I have discovered that if my tummy isn't a little full at bedtime I can't get to sleep. I just keep thinking about eating. And I realize that is all mental but it is still there.
Hope the rest of your weekend is a great one.
