Baking Vs Sewing!

Wah! I rarely weigh myself, we don’t have a set of scales in the house. I usually just go by how my clothes feel and how I feel. Recently I’ve been feeling very sluggish and have notice a bit of a tum developing especially when I sit down.

So I weighed myself at my mums over the weekend and half a stone has crept upon me- no wonder I felt sluggish and bloated!

I’m blaming the fact that I’ve become a pretty good vegan baker of late and also the fact that’s its been cold! I always eat more when its cold in a bid to stay warm.

So I’ve decided when the urge to bake strikes- which is around twice a week at the moment, instead I’ll sew something. I’ve not used my sewing machine as much as I’d have liked so far, see  Sewing Adventures here and I think keeping my brain busy and my hands will distract me from the baking tins!

Do you have any tricks (sensible ones only please!) for not thinking about cake???!!!!

    I have to say I have runs of baking too and then notice the weight creeping on. I don’t have any ploys for forgetting about cake though. Lol. x
