No Sweets For a Year...

Before Nate and I moved to Utah we were deciding what to fix on the house. I was discussing remodeling the kitchen and Nate said umm...that will be expensive and we'd have to do something drastic to save for it. I suggested I go a year without desserts. Nate looked at me like I was crazy and said it couldn't be done. That was about all I needed to set my mind to it. So we joke about this as a battle of wills. So no candy or desserts for me until our anniversary in 2010 with two exceptions, Halloween and Christmas. Some of you may remember our tradition of homemade donuts on Halloween and well it's Christmas. I have made it just a tad over two months and am still going strong but please refrain from detailing your delicious encounters at the dessert bar.

These guys are NOT helping my cause...

Whoa, go Stacey. You are wonder woman. I secretly tried to go no sweets for one week (secretly bc I didn't want Jim to know if I failed). I wish I had your iron will. You go girl.

Oh stace you can do it. And wow to get a new kitchen from that? I'd do it too. Thats how I lost all my weight no sugar, you can do it. And think you may even lose some weight although you might blow away if you do.
