strike on sweets

Yesterday Perez posted a video blog which was somewhat inspiring. I turned it off about one-third of the way through because I can not STAND his voice (though I am very loyal to his site)...but I think I got the gist of the post: basically, he wants to get hot enough to go jogging shirtless by the end of summer.

I'm already pretty hot (ha ha), BUT I have decided to make changes in my life to be healthier and have decided to give up dessert. Yeah, I know Lent is over, but this is going to be my attempt at a more permanent life change, rather than a 40-day temporary adjustment of my habits. In January I made the decision to give up soda (I drank probably 1 can of diet soda per day on average), and have made it four whole months without so much as a sip. I'm pretty confident I will be able to achieve my no-sweets goal, and I'm sharing it with you as a way of motivating myself to stick with it. I have already decided that I will allow myself a celebratory dessert on the night of my graduation--hey, I deserve an indulgence after five years of studying--but that's it. I'm on the fence as to whether frozen yogurt counts as dessert. The rational side of me says it does, but the fro yo-addicted part of me is leaning toward no. Either way, don't worry, I'll still be posting cupcake recipes!

True, two years of studying and three years of WATCHING MOVIES deserves a piece of cake.
