After almost twenty years of being together Little Debbie and I went our separate ways. I would go on to get control of my diabetes and start doing endurance events to get my health back. Little Debbie has gone on to find new friends and continues to make amazing little cakes. Each Christmas season my brother and I will text a picture of Little Debbies world famous Christmas Tree Cakes!! These cakes were a staple in our cupboards as children and I still need my fix to this day.
I stick to a very strict diet that is made up of mainly grains and legumes. You think with my diet that I'd be a world class athlete but I'm not I just love what the diet does for my blood sugars and how it gives me a lot of energy. I'm human however and I still crave a tasty Christmas Tree Cake every December. Yesterday I bought myself a box, I took one cake out and put it in the cupboard, the rest would be hidden somewhere in the house. Yes I hide food, if I didn't I would eat the whole box in one night. I hid the box in our linen closet as you can see in the picture above. The weird part is I know exactly where they are but once Thursday rolls around I will totally forget about them. I will only remember that I have them when I run a big race or ride in a big race. They are kind of my reward for beating my body up. I know that this is not normal but it work's for me. It works so well that I found last years box with one cake missing in May when Leanne and I moved to our new house, the best part was that they had gone bad. Anyone that is looking to try this odd way from snacking please let your partner know that you are hiding boxes of food in the house. It is tough to explain when someone finds a box of Little Debbie cakes in the back of a coat closet.
