wedding-cake-639516_960_720Day 13: This day can be summed up in 2 words: wedding cake. Sorry regimen, but you are no match for this offering of freshly-frosted, tender-crumbed, perfectly sliced and lovingly offered delicacy. After nearly a month (remember there were 2 prep weeks before this actual routine began) of no sugar, etc, etc, I simply had to dip into the moment to help celebrate a young couple’s nuptials. It would have been rude not to! Wedding cake is my all time favorite dessert. Maybe because it represents some extra loving energy or maybe because it’s just damn good!

I do not feel guilty. I do not regret. I will say the first bite was eyes-rolling-in-the-back-of-your-head good, but then the sweetness began to permeate my clean being and I was happy to be done, not quite getting through to the last bite.

It is absolutely good to be disciplined and one can only achieve one’s goals by tons of dedicated hard work, and it is also absolutely good to indulge in life and enjoy a moment when offered. Everything in moderation, right? I do not want to be on my death bed regretting the fact that I avoided things that give me pleasure and delight, however trivial they may seem. It is all the little moments and adventures that add up to one beautiful life and I intend to enjoy mine whilst keeping my eye on the ball for what serves me and the world around me best.

Let us eat cake! (But just a little)
