Yesterday I made this delicious and crusty banana-walnut-bread with all the leftover ripe bananas. I could have made some healthy smoothies too but I chose to ignore the suggestion that my mind was giving me. But to my defense I must note that the bread was made mostly to cheer up Daughter who is always happy to help in baking. And that did cheer her up. And in case you are wondering, yes I did have a slice 😉 .
I must note that this week I’ve been bad. I mean really really bad. I indulged in comfort food and didn’t work out apart from that one day. Since I’ve been bragging here about my good habits, I thought it’s only fair to be honest and accept that I’ve been cheating too.
But I think, I’ll be on track once again after Daughter gave me the speech:
Daughter: Mommy, did you exercise today??
Me: Ummm no …
Daughter: Did you exercise any of these past few days ?? I don’t think you did, did you ??
Me: You were sick and I was busy and daddy was busy and I was tired and ….
Daughter: Looks like someone’s trying to give excuses !!
Me: No, it’s the truth…
Daughter: It’s alright if you’ve missed this week but you need to get back to it. Don’t throw away, what you’ve been working hard on. Take tomorrow off too but Monday you’ll have to get back to your routine, okay mommy??
Me: I guess … ( that’s all I could say after picking up my jaws from the floor). Of course to nurse my hurt ego I decided to have another slice of bread !!
