It tastes like cheesecake, but you can dip things in it. Oh my gosh. I’m in heaven.

Hello, Lover.

 

– 1 8oz container fat free cream cheese

– 2 tbsp vanilla

– 2 tbsp Splenda

 

Soften cream cheese (I warmed mine in the microwave for 45 seconds) then mix all ingredients together with a hand mixer or immersion blender. Refrigerate until cool, and serve!

 

Make this in larger quantities for parties!

Wednesday Weigh-In and Sparkling Virgin Sangria August 9, 2012

My god it’s hot.

I feel like I should have lost five pounds just from all the sweating I’ve been doing. And it doesn’t help that my dogs, despite their constant panting, always want to cuddle.

Want something refreshing? Try this:

Sparkling Virgin Sangria

Ew, looks like blood. Oh, who am I kidding. If it’s served over ice I’ll still drink it.

1 2-liter bottle of Sprite Zero

1 Pitcher Pack Natural Cherry Pomegranate Crystal Light

1 Kiwi, peeled and sliced

1 cup mixed berries, chopped if necessary

1 cup Ocean Spray Diet cranberry juice

Mix all the ingredients together (slowly, so the carbonation doesn’t overflow in the pitcher) and serve in a glass over ice.

The great thing about this drink is that, as the ice melts and the drink gets a little watered down, it still tastes delicious.

Now onto the fun part.

Starting weight: 316

Last weigh-in: 311

Today’s weight: 310

I forgot to weigh-in last week so this is a one pound loss over two weeks, which is kind of disappointing, but at least I’m getting back in the right direction.

I think one of the reasons my weight loss is slow right now is because it’s too freaking hot to do anything. It’s exhausting just being awake and at night it’s so uncomfortably muggy that I never get proper sleep, so trying to exercise is a pain in the butt.

Anyone have a pool? Let’s go swimming. I’ll do that every single day.
