This time of year there are all sorts of lovely breads being baked. Buns are being made and marked with crosses. Chocolate comes around in the shape of eggs and bunnies. All sorts of lovely meals and feasts are planned for loved ones to join around the table.
And for some reason around this time of year I wonder why I always choose this time to try and lose weight. Perhaps its spring cleaning of sorts, but around Easter I always feel I need to drop the weight. The weight I gain from my medications. The weight I have gained from all the time I haven’t been mobile enough to do the whole calorie deficit thing.
The problem is, while I feel a need to lose the weight I also find all sorts of delicious things to sample. New food is brought forth that must be tried and frequently ends up being devoured rather than savoured. Unless the food happens to be a chocolate Easter bunny. Then everything is fine because for some reason I can’t eat them. Not a nibble on the old ears or a sample of fun the tail.
As for chocolate eggs, I think those are better left for others to find because eating them isn’t my cup of tea either. Some maybe I will give you all the bunnies and eggs for brad and buns and other delights!
