Hello fellow bloggers,
I like to think of myself as a fitness obsessed gym bunny who tries her best to stay healthy. But, I’ll be honest, I am a total sucker for carbs through and through. They get me every time!
So I thought I’d share my constant thoughts when face to face with a carb whilst on a fitness journey…surely I can’t be alone on some of these right? If so, that’s embarrassing.
*WARNING* Maybe you shouldn’t read this post as motivation…and instead read it as some entertainment. I was hungry by the end of it. Sorry. You may be craving carbs.
1. What type of potato shall I have?
Boiled? Chipped? Roasted? Baked? Mashed?….Did I miss any? If I did, well then what kind of carboholic am I. This decision is one I’m faced with nearly every day when deciding what to have for dinner.
The added ingredients cross my mind such as, butter & milk for mash (not good) and oil for chips and roast potatoes (also not good). But funnily enough, these are the options I normally go for. Oops. But that’s just the carbs taking control again!
Of course…mine are white. I know they’re not the best for you but – nothing compares! I can’t betray them like that. And plus – I hate sweet potato.
2. Is that enough pasta? Surely not.
I have this incapability to measure the right amount of pasta. I don’t know if it’s something to do with the fact it’s in water (distorting the vision) of how much is there…or if my subconscious is just screaming MORE MORE MORE!!! whenever I’m measuring. Guilty. Anyone else?
3. How am I supposed to measure rice? Oh. Too Late.
Just like pasta, I don’t have any way to measure the right amount of rice. I actually think I’ve mastered this one recently – handfuls? One and a half – two. I think. But I’m never a fan of cold rice the text day and don’t want to risk food poisoning by heating it back up again so I’m left with a HUGE mound to get through. Waste is not an option.
4. I’m eating brown bread. I’m so healthy.
Really? I mean really Katy? I need to be more realistic with myself for sure.
Eating no bread is being healthy. And plus my brown bread isn’t the seedy/nutty ones you can get. It’s just boring old wholewheat bread.
It kinda does feel like a betrayal to the good old classic white loaf, but I can’t really taste the difference when I have whatever I have ontop. My dream is to be that person who voluntarily goes out and buys the seeded bread.
5. Why is the bakery section of all stores SO tempting?
You know the smell. Especially if you get there early in the morning and they’re fresh out the oven. It’s so buttery and sweet and savoury…sometimes it all gets a bit too much and I’ve already got the plastic bag in one hand and the tongs in the other. It also doesn’t help when your boyfriends bagged himself a cheese twist.
The sweet AND savoury options create a problem too. Do I go all out and have a meal? If so, do I have the sweet as my pudding? Or do I chose one over the other….if so, HOW.
6. That is an embarrassing amount of cheese I’ve just grated. Excellent.
