After TWO successful pregnancies and births I have moved my blog over to Our Happy Imperfection!  Please join me over there to continue following my journey, I look forward to welcoming you.  Keep fighting the good fight, and take care!



Ok, so by now you probably know that eating a diet that is rich in protein and low in carbs and sugar and processed crap is a good idea.  You probably also miss some of your old crappy fixes.  Your bad mood foods.  Things like ice cream and Cheez-its and chocolate.  Well I advocate finding things that are okay to cheat with or substitute in for the real thing.

Did you know that PhillySwirl makes these awesome swirled popsicle/creamsicle-like bars that are only 14 calories?! Only 3 net carbs?!  They’re called Sweet Delites.  They ARE sweet and they ARE delightful.  Yes, I know that fake sugar is evil, but it is generally the last thing for me to give up.  I have to have a crutch for a little while.  I personally think that’s okay.  It doesn’t seem to affect my weight loss or cravings too much.  It provides just enough to move past ‘needing’ something sweet.  If you’re human, like me, give them a try.  They will not disappoint.  I was absolutely amazed.  My fiance and I were looking for something yummy that wouldn’t break the carb bank in the ice cream novelties section at that evil place called Wal-Mart.  My fiance thought they looked “janky”- I thought they looked like they were worth a try.  Guess who was right?
