anewbody- I thought they were good. My niece liked them too and she is a very picky eater! It isn't as dense as I thought it would be (I may have fudged up on the measurements of the eggs since I only had egg beaters and put in a little too much hence it being a bit light, the mixture was kinda runny) and pretty moist/crumbly, though the crumbly issue goes away the next day once it sets.

I am seriously thinking about using this recipe as a round layered cake instead of muffins for mother's day, probably going with my mom's favorite- black forest cake but with whipped dream whip/cream cheese mixture for frosting instead since that is what she prefers. Hmm!

Moondance, best of luck with the audition, it sounds like a lot of work but a lot of fun. As for the weights, that's my favourite form of exercise. I find it much more satisfying than cardio.

anewbody, as much as possible is a great goal! I bet you make that 15lbs.

amandie, it's a while since we made chocolate muffins; I think we're due a batch.

IanG, I love the satisfaction of making those mini-goals. There's no better motivator.

It's my dad's birthday today, so we're going to visit with my parents. That means huge portions of yummy, unhealthy food and a sad face if I don't clear my plate. Wish me luck balancing between staying on plan and keeping my parents happy.

I have heard of people using different versions of making cake so it is more healthy than the original recipes. I think doing things like this can help a dieter stay on track without having to stay completely away from snacks

I KNOW exactly how frustrating those family dinners can be. Not ONLY are there good eats, BUT you also don't want to offend anyone by not partaking in certain foods. I hope the dinner goes well for you

Yahoo...scale said 189 this morning...down another 2#!! It's not official though...that comes on Monday. I've got to maintain the loss over the weekend. I sure hope it sticks!!

amandie: Mmmm...chocolate muffins. Good job on the willpower to not overdo it. Don't know that I could be that good! Sounds like a good idea for a cake too. Let us know how it turns out.

IanG: I'm aiming big to get small! Love it! Go big or go home, right?

Crow: How did dinner go? Those kinds of situations can be so tricky!

anewbody2013: Hope you're having a great day!

Default Run Like A Mother

Is a national program that encourages all women to take time for themselves and focus on their health. I am following their training program in addition to my Ideal Protein Diet. I turn 40 in May and want to be proud of the Mommy in the pictures! For novice runners this is a great way to get started. You do not to be entered in an event to access the training schedule - you cando it on your own! Though I must say I will be registering for the event (you can do the run in your own town with friends or alone) because I think the t-shirt should be seen by all!

Drinking 2lts of water daily.
Walking at least 30 min 3 times a workweek
Going on a hike with my family every weekend at least a 2hrs
Having a salad as dinner at least 2 nights a work week

Moondance and anewbody, you're both doing so well!! Seeing you both is motivating me to keep on plan.

Campana, looks like you have a great plan to keep you on track. The combination of salads for dinner and family hikes sounds really great to me.

Me, I survived the family dinner without going too badly off-plan. I managed to limit my portion size of the very tasty food and appeased family by taking home leftovers. It was a great visit!
