My first new years resolution was to NOT diet but to learn how to live a HEALTHY life.  I wanted to make a major lifestyle change.  I am terrible at dieting, I just wanted to learn how to truly eat good and how to make good choices!  I hated going to bed at night knowing I had eaten too much, drank too much Dr Pepper, having a headache and yes the list goes on and on.  
My husband got me a membership to an awesome gym, there are trainers on every day to give you your work out, your meal plan, monitor your weight, body fat, and inches.  
At first it was a lot of work to figure out what foods to eat and how many calories I am taking in etc.  I had been going to another gym pervious but my work outs were not this hard, so needless to say my body has had some adjusting to do!  
I have even taken some naps in the last few weeks, that never happens.  But I am finally getting the hang of things and I can feel my energy coming back, I go to bed at night proud of myself for not giving in to the temptation of food.  And let me tell you, I LOVE FOOD!!!  Probably the best thing I have learned so far is portion control!  It isn't that you can't have it but maybe you shouldn't have that much that often.  Yes, I still have a Dr Pepper every now and again, last night actually.  But instead of it being a 44oz one from McDonalds, it was an 8oz can!
All this being said the best part is my family is eating healthier and we are all more active!  I wish I had done this earlier, if only I had known!  I have not actually lost any weight but I am on track to lose 3% body fat this month and I have lost several inches!  

My next Resolution was to blog more....Can I bribe you with a cupcake to forgive me for being a blog slacker?  

For Christmas my good friend gave me a fun cupcake book so I have had to try some of the fun ideas out! 
 I LOVE cupcakes they are always so cute, and my 4 year old is awesome at making the cake mix!  It is something fun we can do together.  We made these for a very special friend's birthday.

I will have you know I didn't even eat one of these!  I was so proud of myself.

These flamingo ones I helped my 4 year old make me for my birthday, and yes I did eat one of these!  They were delicious!!!!!





  1. I love that new years resolution. Getting healthy is much better then just losing weight. It's about improving the quality of your life. If you get healthier you will lose weight and keep it off. You'll also feel a lot better in terms of mood.
