All Balls
The Cardboard Box Diet Linking up with Lauren today. This is my first post with the CB Diet. If this catches your eye, jumped on over and read Lauren's blog. When you are not on a diet, can never have enough support. Thanks Lauren for this great idea!!

1. First rule - weigh-in. I typically do this on Friday morning (that way - I have allllllllll week to recover from any over indulges of the weekend) So from last week's weigh-in - down 17lbs ( I started in March)

2. Second rule - exercise. Hmmm, well if you count push mowing and walking circles in the pool...then I guess I exercised. One thing I do - when I go shopping....I walk the WHOLE perimeter of the store (usually a Wal-Mart)...try to go up and down every isle and then do my shopping. Of course, I stop and shop along the way (can find some real bargains) - but all the extra steps are a plus.

3. Splurge/Guilty Pleasure - wine - but they are just empty calories. I did spurlge when we ate dinner out Tuesday. Made up for with a grilled pork chop, salad and steamed broccoli.

4. Success Story - I think the fact that I added exercise, be it least I was movin'.

5. Recipes - In Texas - it's hot - so anything cool and fun is a plus. These are YUMMY...hubby can't stop eating them....Skinny Cake Batter Ice Cream Sandwiches (
If my calculations are right, each cookie is about 130calories.

Skinny Cake Batter "Ice Cream" Sandwiches
Mix ingredients, place on a graham cracker square, freeze. I did not roll mine in sprinkles.
I placed the crackers on a cookie sheet and froze them individually first, then place in a zip lock bag for easy access. DELICIOUS.....
  • 1 box of Duncan Hines Funfetti Cake Mix (I think that brand does matter in this one...)
  • 2 cups plain, fat free, Greek yogurt
  • 1 heaping cup of fat free/lite Cool Whip
  • Low Fat Graham Crackers

  1. Great job on the 17 lbs!! And yes, mowing and walking circles in the pool definitely count as exercise! Are you using MyFitnessPal? It's an app for iPhones and Androids, but you can also sign up online and track your exercise and calories through their website. It will tell you how many calories you burned doing various things (including mowing!)

    Keep up the good work! I'm going to have to make those sandwiches!!
