OUR fearless leader (Flab to Fab, Page 11)
has been doing battle with lifestyle choices
of late, and we all support him don’t we?
We all know how hard it is to make these sorts of
modifications in a world where it’s so convenient
to eat quickly, drink more and cook less.
I’m a constant weight battler. I have a larger
assortment of pant sizes than Myer’s. You will
never hear the words, ‘oh whoops, I forgot to
eat’. That person exists, but it’s not me.
I exercise because I have to, not for the love
of it. It’s something I do to keep heart disease,
diabetes and all the other weight related illnesses
at bay. I don’t always want to exercise, but I’ve
never finished a work out and said, ‘gee I regret
that’, not the same way I would when I finish a
fatty meal anyway.
What I do love is baking. I spend almost all of
my pocket money on food magazines and trawl
internet sites for inspiration. My travel bucket list
consists of patisseries in Sydney, Melbourne, Paris
and a bakery in Hoboken, New Jersey. I suppose
I’d like to see the Grand Canyon or something, as
long as there’s a good restaurant close by.
Desserts, biscuits and cakes are my forte.
Loving to bake itself is not a problem.
Being busy in the kitchen on foot might
count for some considerable calorie burn if it
weren’t for my need to taste every batch of any
recipe I try.
I once tried over six recipes in one afternoon
trying to perfect Mama’s sponge lily. Each batch
was tasted in full dressing of cream and jelly. I
could almost see my waist expand at the fifth
So how does one handle a love for food and
cooking and a need to keep that midriff fat
down? For me it’s never going to be something
I can just do. I’m always going to have to be
organised with meals, know what my food costs
me calorie wise, and I have to keep fronting up
for that 30 minutes of physical activity.
Oh, and I suppose if I got recipes right on
the first attempt I’d have to taste test less, now
there’s an idea!

SHROVE Tuesday was celebrated
at Two Wells Primary School on
Tuesday, February 12, with students
tucking into some yummy pancakes.
Shrove Tuesday is the day before
Ash Wednesday and signals the
beginning of Lent for thousands of
Catholics across the globe.
Lent is a 40-day period of fasting
before Easter where traditionally
people used up what food they had in
their homes and made pancake-like
Two Wells Uniting Church organ-
ised and co-ordinated the event at
TWPS. All proceeds will be donated
to UnitingCare in Gawler.
HELPING out are cooks Robin Trevilyan, Maxine
Cummins and Roy Packer.
WENDY Sharpe serves Year
2 student, Jack Grant, some
YEAR 2 students, Connor Barnett and
Liam Hoile, ready to tuck in.
Helen Gammon is “flippin” busy!
