National Iced Coffee Day

Oh, donuts. Their fluffy texture and sugary outside always wants me craving more. Luckily, there are no Dunkin' Donuts where I live and most other donut places don't compare in quality. I've never been a Krispie Kreme type of girl, they always leave me wanting more (which is very dangerous).

If you are lucky enough to live near a DD, be sure to pop in tomorrow, April 21 for Iced Coffee Day. Stop by your local U.S. Dunkin' Donuts on and turn 50¢ into refreshment you can feel good about. For each small Iced Coffee you buy on Iced Coffee Day, 10% of the purchase price will go to The Dunkin’ Brands Community Foundation to support Homes for Our Troops. So, stick to your diet tomorrow, and get a coffee instead of a donut. However, if you decide to get add on a donut to your coffee order - do me a favor and have one for me!

Welcome! I am the infinite snacker..

If you're just landing on this blog by accident, you might wonder who am I? Well, the truth is...I'm no one special. I am just the average girl who happens to love food. Having faced a weight issue most of my life, I am a perpetual dieter who is never not on a weight loss journey. So, in my current attempt to set the record straight, I will share with you my new strategies, my constant weaknesses and my ongoing battle with the bulge--because this is war. Maybe one day I will figure out this thing called weight loss! But in the meantime here is a little bit about me in pictures and words...

  • I love anything (and I mean anything) covered in chocolate chips
  • I am obsessed with Spinning--even though it hasn't let to much weight loss
  • Ice cream is my weakness (especially when filled with Oreos)
  • I have a big butt and everything I eat goes straight to my thighs
  • I weigh myself everyday and it determines whether I am having a good day or a bad one
  • I suspect I have a distorted self view
  • My battle with weight makes me want to pull my hair out, or at least kick and scream once and a while
  • I am a professional women who finds it really challenging to juggle social situations while being "good"
