Day 10 of the Kick the Sweets Challenge!


Woah, woah, wait.  It’s only been 10 days??  -sigh-  I’m going to be honest with you guys.  I’m having some serious withdrawal symptoms.  I’m not going to lie and pretend I haven’t cheated a little.  Maybe starting this challenge on the same week my husband and I got a puppy was not the wisest decision, haha!  Nevertheless!  I am determined to make this work!  I’ve already seen some progress.

Weight lost: 1 lb

Sweetest temptation:  Muffins at work

Hardest moment:  The day Murphy pooped all over the carpet and there was nothing to eat for dinner but tortilla chips.

Toughest realization:  I need to buy healthier foods and get rid of our stash of cookies.

Percentage of soul lost:  4%

80 more days to go!  I CAN DO THIS!

Watch out for some delicious dessert-alternative recipes!



90 Day Challenge: Kick the Sweets


I’m a little late on the bandwagon.  Everyone started their New Year’s resolutions and I was over here like, “Are you going to eat that cookie?”  After all the wedding stress and dieting, I decided I would let loose on the honeymoon,  And then I let that continue on to the next week.. and the week after that…and then, well, you get the point.  It’s been almost 4 months since our wedding and it seems like the scale has been weighing a little heavier every day…  It’s time to face it – the scale’s not broken.  It’s just so fun to live with abandon and pretend like that candy bar’s not going to catch up with you.

Something you should know about me is that when I get into something, I’m REALLY into it for about a month, and then I move on to the next thing.  I’m not good at diets because I commit too hard too quickly and fizzle out before I even see results.  It’s a curse.  This time I’m doing something different.  Instead of cutting out EVERYTHING that’s fun in life, I’m going to start with one category of foods and give it up for 90 days.  I’m going to start with SWEETS.  *sobs*  Yes, you read that right – sweets.  Cookies.  Soda,  Donuts.  Candy.  Cupcakes.  All of it.  Now, 90 days seems like a long time and like I said, one month is usually my limit.  But by giving you updates, I’ll have someone holding me accountable.  Will you join me?

Here are the game rules:

No desserts, soda, candy, etc.

This does not include everything that has sugar in it, because c’mon, that’s just cruel.

Eat as much fruit as you want.  That’s okay in my book.

Yogurt is fair game.

Diet soda is acceptable but only on occasion.

Complaints can and will be said at any time and for any reason.


Along the way, I’ll be updating you with my progress (share yours, too!), posting dessert-alternative recipes… it may turn out to be kind of fun.  But I make no promises.

Let’s do this together!
