Daddy's Little Helper

He kept saying "I push?"
It cracked us up

Being this awesome can be a burden

"The Gang" is all together this weekend so since the group includes some big guys and 3 preggos, I decided to make an indulgent dessert.
I borrowed my new friend Hilary's Pampered Chef Trifle Bowl (thanks Hil!) and concocted an easy but fancy dish.
I used a boxed devil's food cake mix and threw in some chocolate chips. To cut down on the fat and sugar (haha), I used ff/sf vanilla pudding and light whipped cream. So cake on the bottom layer then pudding then whipped cream. Then in the food processor I chopped up some Thin Mints that were in the freezer and then sprinkled that on top of the whipped cream. And then repeated the layers.
I only used 2/3rds of the cake because that was all the layers I could fit in there. I wish it was a little prettier but who cares what it looks like when it tastes that good.
So right now it is chilling in the fridge and in a few hours, hopefully, we will all be enjoying it.
We don't get together that often so we are celebrating and eating well.

Motivation makes me hungry

I'm counting points again.
I don't want to but I need to.
I've gained about 8 or 9lbs since November. I'm 6 over goal weight.
It was fun eating like Fat-Emily for the last few months but I have a pair of skinny jeans that don't fit and that bums me out.
I get 20 pts a day. I've been good so far today. Still have 9 left.
I stuck to my plan even at Cracker Barrel.
My problem hasn't been lack of self control. It's been an extreme case of not giving a crap.
For the last few months, I've eaten what I want, when I want it. Even when I knew I was doing it for the wrong reasons.
So I'm back on the program.
I also bought Dancing with the Stars Cardio Dance kicked my butt.
I only made it through 10 minutes the first time. I need to do aerobic exercises more often. I have the lungs of a 65 year old smoker. Well probably not, it just feels like it. I was fat all through out puberty and my 20s, so my lungs are weak. very weak. It's very annoying.
So now it's time to fix that.

Eating is more fun.
