Sorry I'm a little late announcing the winners, ladies! But here they are:

The lady with the most posts was RACHPENN! A sparkgoodie is coming your way - way to resist those temptations!

Picking the most interesting story was definitely difficult, since you ladies had some great ideas. In the end, I'm giving one to both MEGAMITENCHI and BRIDESTEK.

Kate wins for her last post about her Starbucks latte, because it reminded me about how we can all have some of our favourite goodies if we just subsitute some of the ingredients for something healthier. I'll admit it, I'm a sucker for a good latte.

Alyssa wins for her post about cutting her cheesecake into six slices instead of eight. Remember everyone, smaller portions = less calories and still a way to enjoy those yummy treats.

Thanks for participating, gals!

Got married May 30th, 2009!

Co-captain of the Buff Brides team! All brides-to-be are more than welcome.

I splurged a little and bought a hazelnut hot chocolate at Starbucks- but! I got it with non-fat milk, no whipped cream, and it was still nice and tasty!

Life is not fair, or unfair, it is simply what you make of it!

On Monday our office staff is bringing us goodies for the holiday season. I'm going to bring some of my favorite healthy snacks to work and limit myself to only one sweet treat.

For my birthday last week, instead of buying a *huge* container of ice cream, I bought the little tiny containers of Ben and Jerry's, it's a really great middle ground!

Great job, ladies! You are probably doing a better job than me at resisting the goodies! Working at a chocolate store really isn't the best for me - especially when one of my favourite chocolates has made its return for Christmas. I couldn't resist buying a package!

But I didn't eat it all by myself! I shared with my fiance and our roommate, so it wasn't as bad as it could have been.

Keep the stories coming!

I'm in! I'm a teacher and the amount of goodies that show up around this time of year is INSANE!!

I already avoided a Thanksgiving temptation. My fiance loves pumpkin pie and I love apple so usually we get one of each. This year I skipped the apple and only got pumpkin, which I won't touch. I bought some low-cal chocolate pudding as a sweet snack for myself. :)

Okay guys, I know that the holiday season will soon be upon us. I also know that with the holiday season comes a LOT of temptations: hot chocolate, egg nog, gingerbread, candy canes, cookies and cakes and chocolate and gigantic meals. It's a LOT! And I expect to hear some stories about people falling off the wagon. So I figured, let's come up with a Christmas challenge.

I don't expect everyone to give up all of those yummy foods, so what I propose is this: every day, try to either:
a) avoid one of the unhealthy foods by substituting it with something healthy (example: "I feel like hot chocolate. I'm going to have green tea instead!"),
or
b) give into the temptation but do so in a moderated way (example: "I'm craving a great big slice of that chocolate cake! I'm going to eat a little chocolate out of this advent calendar instead").

Then, come back to this thread and post your stories about how you didn't give in to the "spirit" of Christmas. On Christmas day, whoever has the most stories of how they resisted temptations will get a sparkgoodie from me!

BUT WAIT! There's a second prize! Whoever has the most INTERESTING story about how they resisted temptation will get a sparkgoodie too! So if you have to leap over bushes and climb trees and lock yourself in a bathroom for three hours with your worst enemy who becomes your best friend, tell me about it!

Got married May 30th, 2009!
