Its like a cupcake, but bigger!

So I know that yesterday I posted about my weight loss. Well, the key to a good diet is not only will-power and determination, but also the occasional treat. 🙂
I got a giant cupcake pan for Christmas from my mom…and last night I met some girlfriends for dinner and hangout time. So I wanted to try out my new pan, so I made a precious giant cupcake! Isn’t it cute? The pan has this cute star design on the top, and I didn’t want to cover it up, so I only frosted in the star and around the edges. I used M&Ms for sprinkles. Big cupcake= big sprinkles. The inside of the cake is Dr. Pepper Chocolate Cake without the chocolate chips.
And the sliver I had was yummy. 🙂

Research on Blogging

So I am all good to do my research on blogging for my thesis. If you want to help, go to Kelly’s Korner and check it out. (BIG thank you to Kelly for helping me recruit participants!).

If you wandered over here from Kelly’s Korner, welcome! I would love it if you would leave me a comment saying hello! Thank you for completing my thesis survey for me and helping me on my journey through grad school.

Have a great day! 🙂


13 is a Good Number!

I went to weigh in today at MRC. I was a little nervous, not gonna lie. See, when I was away in Memphis last weekend, I did go off program a little. I tried to do as good as I could, but I ate BBQ and crepes (neither of which are approved program foods). I did run twice in Memphis in the hotel gym, but I hadn’t worked out since I got home. So, I wasn’t sure what to expect at my weigh in today.

But I had lost 3 more pounds! For a total of 13 pounds lost! Woohoo!

I forgot to mention on here that last week I got to sign the 10 pound loser board, which was exciting. But it was great to see more results and that I hadn’t sabotaged myself.

I am stoked. I am looking forward to the next couple of times I weigh in because we are supposed to measure me, so I can see inches lost as well.

I am having a great time sticking to the program and am having great results. So far so good!
