Life by Cynthia: Sweet Success!

Sweet Success!

On Friday we had a party for my brother in law. Instead of a traditional birthday cake we had Sprinkles cupcakes! I SO wanted to dive into a chocolate one. I stuck with my weight loss goals & walked away from the temptation. I am becoming a willpower ninja these days!

I didn't dance off any calories with the Xbox Kinect, but avoiding the sweets was enough for me.

Once upon a time chocolate was one of my weaknesses.  NOT anymore!  I just remind myself of how much weight I've lost...that really helps make it much easier.  NOW, I just have to get myself back into the gym and yoga studio!


  1. Those look delicious! Love the idea too. :) Ahh willpower against chocolate.. so hard. I've got to get my baby belly fat off. I want to start using Jillians 30 day shred video. I used that before I got prego with my second, and I went down a couple pant sizes in 1 month. It was hard though. :D Congrats on staying with the willpower. I think once it becomes a habit, it's easier to keep it up. :)

  2. Ohhhh, a Sprinkles cupcake. Not sure I would have withstood that pressure.

    I have lost 10 lbs. since the beginning of December, though. I use a logging tool for food and exercise at It's helping me make better educated food choices (so I know what I'd be stuffing in my mouth with that cupcake).

    Live healthy. Enjoy living! :)

  3. Those cupcakes looks delicious! Good for you not overindulging. I used to be a chocoholic, and after lots and lots of practice, have become the "just a bite" girl. Satisfying and don't feel so gross afterwards. Those cupcakes would make it hard though!

  4. Those cupcakes look delicious - and good job for holding out! I have a VERY rough time not eating stuff like that!

  5. good for you!!! they look hard to resist!

  6. Your willpower is amazing! Especially when those cupcakes spell temptation. :)

    Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm now a follower of yours. :)

    My hubby's B-Day was a lil bit ago and his Mom baked him a chocolate log cake--I didn't take a piece and AND he gave me grief about it!! "Just NOT worth the calories I told him" MORE for me was his responce... its sick how much junk he can eat and only gain a 1/2 a lb a year!!!!
    BUT I totaly understand the feeling inside when your STRONG enough to say NO!!!

  10. Congratulations! And those cupcakes look absolutely delicious - I would have caved in if I had been there.
