Low cal goodness.

I love me some sweets and ice cream. If I indulged the way I want to everyday, though, I'd probably be diabetic. For dessert tonight, I'm having Trader Joe's frozen Greek yogurt (100 calories per half cup) and a teaspoon of Trader Joe's pumpkin butter on top. I heated the pumpkin butter in the microwave for 30 seconds so it would spread. 

A little bit of creativity, and my sweet tooth has been fulfilled.

What are your favorite guilt-free treats?

A reminder about the scale...

It's a determining item for all of us, but sometimes you can't take it that seriously. I've been working hard to gain muscle mass, and the scale tells me that because my weight has gone up, my body fat percentage did as well. I call bullshit.

When I was anxious and unhealthy, the scale told me I was doing a good job. Now that I weigh more, the scale doesn't understand that I've gained a lot of muscle.

If you're working hard, don't believe everything you read.
