I'm going to cheat in about 10 hours and it will be DELICIOUS! ;)

Day 35

Friday, February 11, 2011

I took the day off today. No weights. No cardio. Strict diet adherence though =) I’m still not totally over that cold and I’m tired. I also had a ton of work stuff to clear today so I decided to recognize that rest can be beneficial and that’s what I did, but don’t think I won’t be running off to Gold’s right after my breakfast cheat meal to train the shit out of my lats come morning! ;)

Well I did do an 8 minute palm workout, otherwise known as 8 minutes of kneading from scratch cinnamon roll dough by hand, hehe ;)

I’ll warn you now, this post is about to turn into a cinnamon roll love poem. Breakfast tomorrow is going to be my 3rd official cheat meal which works out to one every 12 days which is just about the perfect spacing. I know how to make a lot of things from scratch: beurre blancs, seared duck breast, prime rib, phad thai, chocolate éclairs, gorgeous lattice pies, bread, ooey gooey caramelized walnut covered cinnamon rolls. I know how to strip down a whole salmon or an uncut beef filet or a pork tenderloin into perfect portions with a big curved knife. You get the gist. I just refrain, because it obviously does not coordinate well with becoming a figure competitor and I don’t do it for a living (although I did between the ages of 15 and 19).

The cinnamon rolls are my BIG weakness. Thank goodness they require so much effort / time to make that it is just about impossible to mistakenly eat them on impulse. I make the dough the night before, let it rise an hour, roll it out fold in the brown sugar, butter, cinnamon, and walnuts, make a liquid caramel out of brown sugar, butter, and corn syrup to put in the bottom of the pan, cut them and let the whole thing hang out in the fridge till morning. Then it will rise again and bake up to pure bliss. I’m thinking we should do it up right and have bacon too, but I need to go digging in the freezer to see if there is any.
