Chocoholic. Yeah, that's Justine

#7 "Lose 10 pounds" - 4 pounds down 6 more to go!

#1 "Make the perfect mocha" is kind of getting in the way of item #7! Why do my items have to be so contrary to one another!

I must preface this next bit with a quote from a precious little boy whom I love dearly but shall remain anonymous, who told me when I was 9 months pregnant, "You gotta layoff those cupcakes!"

Although I will still eat a Cost-Co chocolate muffin every once in a great while, I was mortified to find out that it is a whopping 690 calories. Considering I'm "allowed" 1200 calories I will definitely think twice before gobbling one down like I usually would!

These VitaTop muffins have become my 100 calorie alternatives.

Try tracking your daily exercise and calories on an app or website like "Lose It". You can even "friend" someone else who's using the app so that they can track your progress. Talk about accountability!

Here's a {link} to a yummy, inexpensive, easy and low-cal recipe I tried last night. Everyone liked it! Which, in my house, is a minor miracle.

Chicken with Rosemary Sauce (Cooking Light)

Anyone else have any get-fit tips or recipes to share?

Don't feel bad I will only be crossing off my first thing from my list this weekend as well. I think I have too many weekly and monthly things on it. So they won't get crossed off till Dec. Oh Well. I will email you a recipe later today. And I well give you a definite answer to what we were talking about this morning on Mon.
