"Brazo de Mercedes": 2 days, 2 slices
I do not know what you call this in Western Countries but here in Philippines it's called "Brazo de Mercedes", a kind of dessert that is so sweet. The yellow in the middle makes it sweet and the white part (which is made of eggwhites) is not that sweet at all and it has a foamy feeling while you eat (like the feel of cotton candy). I have never eaten this for quite a long time now so when i bought 1 whole roll yesterday, i actually finished 2 slices. If only i haven't eaten a heavy lunch i think i can finish 3 slices (huh!). That's how i miss eating this dessert. And this morning i have eaten 1 slice in and another slice for lunch. So all in all i had four and still craving for more.
Yes! Believe it or not i just love eating sweets. And my calorie count is still normal. I don't exercise regularly. It's just that my metabolism is fast.
How's my weight going?
My weight is normal (i guess).
Maybe i don't get bigger and gain weight that fast is probably because instead of taking a cab going to work, i just ride a Public Utility Jeepney (PUJ, which is very common here in the Philippines) and from the Jeepney stop i just walk going to our office which roughly will take me 7-10 minutes.
So, now becomes my daily exercise. I don't sweat but i guess it has an effect. And after office i do the same. I walk from our office going to Jeepney station. So whether i eat a lot for sweets i don't worry. But ofcourse i take some discipline of not having too much calorie intake.
Prevention is better than cure.
