Which of course, leaves lots of "fatty cakes" sitting around the house for DH and I to get fat on. My only saving grace is that a lot of the time I have the urge to bake but not the energy to do so. The latest craving is cinnamon rolls. I happened upon them while grocery shopping and thought "They look yummy but I don't want to spend $3 on something that I'm sure isn't as yummy as they look and I could make them for much cheaper anyways." I happened to be in an expensive store so I thought I would stop by Wal-mart and pick up some cinnamon buns for cheap. On my way there I decided to turn right and just go home instead. I was pretty proud of myself.
The problem is... I still want to bake some and I guess it will be a matter of time before my craving overtakes my laziness. I suppose if I bake them myself and substitute out the oil and butter with flax seed and applesauce they shouldn't be too fattening. Plus, I'll get plenty of fiber. I guess it's not too bad to eat one sweet a day so long as I keep up with DH and my deal to do at least 5 extra minutes of exercise when I indulge in one. What do you think?
