My Goals:
Every year I lose 10 lbs over and over. I hate this because it keeps me in a perpetual state of having to lose 20-25 lbs. My goal is to lose 30 lbs and keep it off - AND - As of June 2014, I feel I'm half way there.

My Program:
To achieve my goal I'm trying to maintain consistency with food and exercise. I love swimming and just being in water. After a week of walking, stretching and cardio I go to the pool Saturday morning as a treat.

Personal Information:
I'm a Northern California native and now live in the Pacific NW with my partner of 16 years.

I do a mug cake similar to this. I substitute out any oil used with applesauce which can significantly reduce calories.

Ok here goes and I really don't no the nutrition facts but I look at it as one single serving with what is in this treat can't be all that bad.

3-2-1 Cake Recipe

Take one box of "moist" cake mix like Betty Crocker your fav flavor
Take one box of Angle Food cake mix

Dump both into an air tight container and shake thoroughly to combine both mixes well.

Now use a measuring spoon ....

place in a ramkin
3 table spoons of the mix
2 table spoons of water
mix well
nuke in microwave for 1 minute

That's it !!! It's really that simple. ENJOY !!!

I find it to be a tasty single serve treat to satisfy my cake cravings. I like to top the vanilla cake with different fruit toppings and FF Cool Whip.

Let me know what you think.

Hi Cheryl, hope you have a lovely day today.

I just wanted to tell you that the Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese was delicious and everyone loved it. I made a comment about it last Sunday evening after the picnic that day. I have to be honest I did make a few adjustments after I read the other comments with suggestions. I do recommend it and will def make it again. emoticon

Let me know how the cake turns out. Cake is my fav dessert. I make a single serve cake caked a 3,2,1 Cake. If your interested let me know and I'll give you the easy recipe. emoticon

Also regarding your weight results. Due to your meal last night and your beverages I want to suggest you re-weigh in tomorrow morning to get a true weight. Last night's meal maybe have contained a lot of sodium and this morning you may have seen the results of that. Flush it out today and report tomorrow, if it's the same then we will go with that. Just a thought let me know before I post it today. emoticon

.´*.¸.•´♥ Welcome to Spark People! Welcome to Spark Blogging!

One thing I would suggest is: Keep collecting Spark Friends like candy!! It is calorie free and they always give you something to "chew on"!!

You can just "friend" need to ask. We are friendly and don't bite!

You can find motivation and inspiration from everyone here, even those that are struggling (because you know how they feel!!) Welcome new people, Join teams, blog, join challenges, blog, be excited, blog. And did I mention: blog? The future fabulous you will want to look back at your journey and will want to encourage others!! When the excitement wanes (it WILL!!) put down your pom poms and lurk in the background, (but don't leave and don't do too much damage) and wait for the tide to turn...pick up your oars and keep rowing.

You can do this!!

“Change takes time. It takes time for the seeds to begin growing within, time to understand the process, time for the growth to mature, and time for the old self to die and fall away.” -Bryant McGill
