If you ever watch tv, you would know where the statement above was going. Hello everyone my name is OAD and I am an addict. Addicted to what you may ask? Lets go…I am addicted to Kitchen scramble (its a game I play multiple times on my ipad daily- which exists solely for game playing and kindle – reading)- i have managed to avoid paying to play in the 7 months I have been at it sha.
I am also addicted to cakes and pastries in general- for instance I have had a piece of cake everyday for the last month. Yes its a problem, but I don’t think I want to fix it. Cake makes me happy- I know many of Lagos’ popular bakers and have personal relationships with most bakers. I can dissect a cake like its a science, yes I am that bad…I can like the actual cake and hate the person’s cream of frosting. I am that bad. I have had folks bring me cakes from London, South Africa, Ghana etc. I eat cake for breakfast, lunch, dinner, mid day snack etc. I know how to bake very well, so I am entitled to discriminate.
When most bakers need to experiment- I am a good test mule. Its not a surprise I struggle with my weight in terms of actually being where I want to be for my height. I have been going to the gym almost religiously in the last month and I think I lost 1KG. I can’t tell my husband because he paid for the gym membership – i can just convince myself its muscle gain😆.
I also favour Yam and plantain…taah food is to be enjoyed- so long as my clothes fit and my stomach isnt doing a “dunlap” (stomach dun lapped the belt), I am ok. Sometimes I am grateful I am “lack- toast” (hood pronunciation of lactose) intolerant – i dont have much of a challenge with ice cream etc – the thought of the sickness to follow usually keeps me respecting myself.
Please what are your struggles wih food if you have any? We aren’t judging ourselves on this post. We are just sharing.
This week’s giveaway is going to be a nationwide one amd ridiculously random- stay tuned.
