2 minute, 100 Calorie Chocolate 'Cup' Cake Recipe

I like having something warm and chocolaty once in a while. However, except for pigging out on the 'ACTUAL' holidays, I don't want to sabotage the hard work I've done, so I came up with this simple, warm, yummy treat to satisfy my cravings without leaving the rest of the pan sitting there calling my name.

In a microwave safe mug
1 Tbsp. Flour
1 Tbsp. Sugar
1/2 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder
1 generous pinch of Salt
then add:
1 Tbsp. Fat-Free Milk and stir.
Microwave on high for 45 seconds (give or take depending on your microwave).

It's easy and it's yummy. Enjoy! :)

Tuesday's Tips: 10

Got a sweet tooth, but want something that won't cause your calorie bank account to charge you overdraft fees? Try chewing some yummy gum. I've heard that the Extra desserts gum is good so I'm going to pick some up next time I get to the store.

Off to a bad start!

This is my second post. Although I did lose 2lbs, I can honestly tell you that I'm shocked! I've done nothing...you read it right...nothing to rid myself of this weight. I know this will get harder with the onset of the holiday season (not only because of the food and sweets, but also because I'm 'closet exercise' person meaning I don't like to workout in front of others and we often have family in town during the holidays). So now is the time to set some REALISTIC goals! Lets starts off nice and slow. I want to do something each day. The trick is to find the right time (some suggestions would be nice!). I think 8:30am is okay.
Monday: Run 1 mile
Tuesday: Wii routine (Yes, some may find this sad but the Wii can be considered a workout)
Wednesday: Run 1 mile
Thursday: Cardio work out to my fav DVD
Friday: Wii routine
I'll take a break on the weekend, because I have the feeling that I'll need it :-)
I'll check in next week. Wish me luck!
