Cardboard Box Diet, week 5 I may have skipped a week in there. Sorry people. Things have been a little hectic 'round here!

Weight -- Holding steady at 126, basically where I want to be.

Exercise -- Last week I only went to Barre Amped once. Between board meetings and other commitments, I just couldn't get it in. However, this week I've been twice, including "Fire" on Tuesday which is more cardio-heavy. I'm also scheduled to go on Friday.

Splurge/Guilty Pleasure -- I had a piece of birthday cake with some awesome butter cream icing earlier this week. Killer :)

Success Story -- Hmm :-/

Recipe -- The Pinterest "Funfetti" dip from the Eat Yourself Skinny website. Hello, people...this is awesome. Now, it seems I never make something without a slight modification, so let me tell ya what I did. Here are the ingredients (with my modifications):
1 (18.9 oz) box Funfetti cake mix
2 cups fat-free plain yogurt
I used 1 plain container Greek yogurt, and 1.5 containers light/fat-free vanilla yogurt
1 cup lite Cool Whip
I may have eyeballed/added a little more :)
Fat-free animal crackers
Graham crackers are also quite tasty
Random thoughts -- Even though it was never my plan to fully submerge myself in diet mode, I still kinda feel like I've failed if I don't have anything super to report here. I know that isn't the case, but it's hard to break that mindset. Better luck next week.


  1. That dip sounds delightful! Thanks for sharing and keep it up!

  2. No said your weight is holding steady where you'd like it to be...that's great! :o)

    I've seen that funfetti dip on Pinterest and wondered if it was good. I'll have to finally go pin that one now.

    Have a great week!

  3. what is barre amped? is it similar to pure barre? that funfetti dip sounds yummy
