My new favorite website

I am guessing i think about food every second of the day because i can't have the good stuff at the moment, BUT... I have found my new favorite website. I have spent all day looking at it, and i now want to open my own bakery and bake all the time.

I loved the cupcakes and the cute toppings, the pies, cookies, drinks, even the peppermint eggnog... SO CUTE!!!! Also, i found a recipe for a Boston Cream Pie cupcake.. Delish.. Don't worry, i will slowly eat my desserts when i see them. I WILL NOT rush into eating sugar because it would make me sick and i would gain EVERYTHING i just lost. Plus i feel so lucky to be dieting with my friends at work. We are all in this together and we are a support group, we can't let each other go crazy after we are done dieting.. ha ha i heart you all!!!! xoxo

R.I.P. Michael Jackson

This is so sad. I cannot believe how unexpected this was. Michael Jackson Died today due to Cardiac Arrest. Wow.. I am so shocked. Michael lived his life in the spot and he has had so much success in this life time. His music will live on forever. I'll never forget the south park episode with Michael Jackson.. That is how I'll remember him for the rest of my life. R.I.P.

My first meal

All i can think about is food. I live for food!!!! I breathe for food and I've been thinking about where i want my first meal to be since i haven't had anything that great for the past month. I was thinking i should have sushi!!!!! I usually get the Vegas roll and O. M. G. it is the best one i have ever had. Then, i was thinking maybe i should go to Texas Road House. I'm pretty sure i have never been more satisfied while eating one of their rolls with butter. But then, i really want to go to this place called Italian Village to get a Pizza Bendor. The Pizza Bendor is stuffed with mozzarella cheese, ham and peperoni, then you dip it in marinara sauce... and i would want their meatballs and garlic bread.. WOW, i love food.. I've also been craving a subway sandwich. YUM!! Or how about Cafe Rio.. you can never go wrong with Cafe Rio.. oh yeah, and i need to get a dessert too.. So i was thinking about some cake batter from Cold Stone, or homemade brownies, or Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, or a smore or i would love to have a cinnamon roll drizzled with Carmel and nuts, and a delicious cupcake... Ahhh, why do i eat so much! But i have made a decision... i can only eat out once a week, and once on the weekend.. ha ha I don't know why i feel like i have to eat out instead of making something at home, which making it at home is so much better for you! Well, i have learned a lot about counting calories and I'm pretty much on a new path for a healthy diet (except my one to two times a week deal).

So as all of you know, i have this serious fetish with Europe and it all started because my mom went to study abroad in London for 3 months while she was in college.. I have always wanted to do a study abroad in London.. REALLY BAD!!!!! So i have found a few schools and programs where i can study abroad in Europe, and even at Cambridge. Oh i am so excited.. If anyone wants to do it with me let me know! I want to go with people i know.. ha ha a new experience like this alone would kill me.

Lately, since i have been on this gaylord diet, i have been craving these amazing treats from Europe.. They are so good, i could run down to the London Market and stock up on these.. 7 days, 7 days and i am done with this diet!!!! YAY!!!

Okay, okay.. I totally cheated on my diet this weekend.. How could i not, it was Fathers Day and it was my dad's birthday! We had cake and yummy treat EVERYWHERE!!!! I have never loved food so much in my life, then when i was eating at my Grandma's house, I had THE most amazing cupcake with vanilla frosting and a fresh strawberry on top.. mmmm, and some 7 layer bean dip, and baked beans, and a croissant sandwich, and jelly bellies, and chocolate birthday cake.. and pasta salad and a pear salad. AHHHHH i love all of it but i know i can't eat that all the time.. that is why you go crazy for one day and then... back to reality.. i am trying to lose weight.. Soooo, i need to stick with the healthy diet and lose a few more pounds.. Then eventually add in the good stuff.

So my cute and wonderful friend has told me there are two types of diets. First, a healthy diet and second, an unhealthy diet. I have decided to live a healthy diet. It has been SUPER hard but i am down 12 pounds! Can you believe it? I sure can't.. This dieting experience has lasted me about 3 weeks so far and i have 2 weeks to go. I have realized i don't need to eat out everyday of my life.. it wastes so much money and it makes you fat! ha ha i have bought only fresh fruits, veggies and protein. I have cut out all carbs, sugars, fries, anything deep fried, dairy, soda, ice cream, sushi and pretty much anything else that tastes good. I miss ALL of it but.. i know OCCASIONALLY i can eat all of the bad stuff! There is nothing more rewarding than knowing that you have lost weight and your clothes don't fit you so you have to go buy more.. Well who doesn't love shopping more than me?.. I don't know, but i am pretty excited. Hopefully i can maintain this weight loss and i never want to gain it back. It definitely takes some dedication.. but it's so worth it!

Jackson Hole/ Yellowstone Vaca

A few weekends ago the whole fam went to Jackson Hole and Yellowstone. It was so much fun but i swear we were in the car FOREVER!!! We stayed in Idaho Falls the first night which we went to dinner, swimming and bed.. ha ha we couldn't find much to do. The next morning we woke up and went to the Titanic Exhibit. That was so amazing to see artifacts and utensils the people used while sailing on the Titanic. After the exhibit we headed up to Jackson hole.. We did some shopping, we went to the best Chinese restaurant...IT was so yummy.. Then the hot tub broke at the motel so we couldn't even enjoy that.. the next morning we headed up to Yellowstone where it rained and it was kind of chilly but awesome! We saw 2 buffalo (which i guess isn't that many, we just went at the wrong time). Anyway, It was wonderful and great family time!
