Food Lately⁹

It has been very well documented on here over the years, my taste for all things sweet. I love nothing more than a good cup of coffee and a slice of cake, pastry or indeed anything to satisfy my sweet tooth. But lately, as I think about getting older I realise I'm probably at an age where I should be thinking about those extra calories I eat. This post was brought to my attention by a reader (someone favouriting some pics on Flickr) and I realised that despite only being taken three years ago, I was actually a lot slimmer then. I have begun to take my diet and exercise regime a little more seriously over the last few weeks, so most of these iPhone pictures you see here were taken before that time, although you can see the food turns a little healthier towards the end. Also I'm thinking of starting to document my lower-calorie food to share with you some of my diet tips... although I'm not sure the food pictures will be quite so interesting!
