Cupcake Chic

Every Monday morning my mother and I go to Weight Watchers. 
If I lose weight I reward myself with a treat
{I am good the rest of the week}
I have found that it is easier to stick to healthy eating if you let yourself eat one treat or one fatty meal a week.
-IN MODERATION-
***
This week I lost weight so I allowed myself a treat.
My mom told me yesterday about a cupcake shop that she went to that had gluten free cupcakes. WHAT?! How amazing, and terrible. Being gluten free helps eliminate most unhealthy foods from my diet. 
I like having the option to eat a cupcake, but sometimes I feel it would make dieting a lot easier if I knew I couldn't eat one. 
I got the Red Velvet cupcake and it was HEAVEN.
they put them in little Chinese take out boxes, and look how cute the little heart deco is on top! NOM NOM.
So what if I did take like 100 pictures of it before I ate it?? It was delicious and I highly recommend this place!
I was pretty sad when it was gone. Although I feel really motivated to exercise so that I can get another one next Monday ;)

Today was one of those rainy lazy days. I did however take down the Christmas tree! Haha. I seriously had it up until today, no lie. I also did some spring shopping, I actually bought some heels. Don't know what I'm going to wear them with because I don't own a dress. Hopefully I will actually like them.
I also bought these two shirts:
Can you tell that I like stripes?
I can't wait until spring!
***
The puppies and I took a few naps today as well:)
They love that electric blanket, puts them to sleep every time!
This doesn't look too comfortable.
Every so often they would wake up to bicker. Silly puppies.

Oh and I got my package from Gale today!
I will be blogging on that tomorrow, also about what is in my purse. haha.
Have a lovely evening!
OH and the giveaway end in thirty minutes, better hurry up and enter!

Congrats on the weight loss! I found when I did Weight Watchers that giving myself a treat was the only way I could lose the way.

And I love your taste in clothes!

Congrats Heidi! And that cupcake looks amazing. I would have taken just as many pictures! ;-)
Cute shoes and I really love that second top.
Your pups are adorable as always! Makes me wish I had a second one!

I'm so happy they make gluten free cupcakes! That is wonderful, even if it is more tempting.

And those heels would look ADORABLE with skinny jeans and a shirt similar to the first one you posted. At least that is how I would wear them.

Ps. It makes me laugh that you put a little paw print to censor the puppy's *ahem* "thing".

Chrissy said...

Love those heels and the two shirts! I need to go shopping for spring!!
Have a fab day! xxx

Yay on the weight loss! :) That cupcake is super cute... My weakness is milkshakes, so maybe I should copy you and only get them once a week as a weight-loss award. Great idea!!

Liz said...

You are so intense!! I reward myself for walking normally every five minutes. ... No wonder I'm having trouble losing weight.
AND I WANT THAT SECOND SHIRT. Well, and the first one. BUT DEFINITELY THE SECOND ONE.
Cupcakes are awesome. But you probably already know that.

That cupcake looks delicious! I have a new love for Red Velvet all because of the Red Velvet Blast from Sonic. hahaha. Delish!! Congratulations on your weight loss! And I can't wait to see who wins...I hope its me! hahahaha.

Love you!

Yummy cupcake. Looks so good! I've been eating better this week. I'm trying to do less carbs and more fruits and veggies. I'm staying away from bread and pasta. But I do agree in being able to cheat now and then. Like tonight I had two small pieces of pizza :)
