I have a confession to make. There is something I haven’t told you for the last two months. It has been my little secret. I was kind of embarrassed to admit it. But here goes…deep breath…I’m dieting. Gah! I know I should have told you. Maybe I could have gotten a support group going to encourage me. There is something humbling about admitting that you have allowed yourself to grow a bloggy butt and haven’t been disciplined in your eating choices or your exercise.
But here I am…again…dieting. I hate that I can be the most disciplined person you know or the biggest glutton in America. There is no balance with me and I despise that about myself. So I am attempting to make some life changes again. Blah! Why can’t I just be skinny and live on Oreos, Twix, and icecream? I just don’t get it. Boo!
Anywho…back to the reason for this post. I have a sweet tooth. Like an uncontrollable, animal instinct towards sweets. If you told me I had to give up sweets altogether I would just say “pull the plug, I’m done!.” So in my attempts to lose weight and still maintain some sweet joy in my day I am always looking for low cal sweet treats. I must share with you my latest addiction. 100 Calorie Pack Strawberry Shortcake. For 125 calories this is quite filling and a great summer sweet alternative to say a large bowl of icecream with hot fudge and Oreos…not that I have ever eaten that!
All you need is the 100 Calorie Hostess Cinnamon Streusel Coffee Cake cut into fourths…
and a 1/2 cup of cut up berries. I also add a little bit of Truvia to sweeten it up.
It is so yummy. When you need a little chocolate fix try the 100 Calorie Hostess Chocolate Cupcakes with the berries. Oh so yummy!
Ok so now that the cat is out of the bag. I WOULD ABSOLUTELY love you if you shared some low calorie recipes or sweet treats with me. Puhleeeease! Help a chubby sister out.
