Final Tell All Tuesday

Okay, well I have finally made a decision! I am changing WW meetings and will be going on Friday mornings at 7am. So, my weigh in confession post will be on Fridays.

I weighed in on my home scale this morning just to see where I am (after all, we spent the weekend at my moms and on the road) and I was down close to 2 pounds! I hope the Friday morning weigh in is just as kind to me! I also went to the gym this morning for a weight lifting class as there is an ice storm on the way and I won't be able to get out and go tonight.

In other news, I had a baby shower a few weeks ago for my friend Kristin and I wanted to share a couple of pictures (look how cute the diaper cake I made turned out!) and the punch recipe that turned out to be VERY popular!

Now for the punch recipe that I of course reworked to lower the points so I wouldn't feel so bad about tasting it. Everyone loved it and seemed very surprised when I told them that it was a leaner version.
Mocha Cappuccino Punch
1/4 c decaf instant coffee
1/2 c sugar
1 c boiling water
combine, cover, and chill
4 pints of skim milk
1 pint of fat free half and half
1/2 gallon no sugar added low fat chocolate ice cream (I used Blue Bell)

You look great!!! I can't wait to be so close to my WW goal!

Loved the diaper cake!

Kristy said...

Ok - first, you look AWESOME!

And second - I have had this punch before and I LOVE it! I have been known to make it at home just because I NEED it! :)

WOWZA girl! You are looking so good! Your face, it's so lean and mean but in a good way ;)

Great cake and that punch sounds so yummy! I'll have to save that for my next party!

Oooh - your diaper cake looks better than my real cakes! LOL. Nice job on that! Also, that punch really sounds interesting. I never thought to have a coffee-type of punch. Sounds like it went over well though. One question - the first ingredient says 1/4 c decaf instant coffee - so that is in it's dry form and not already mixed, right? After that, I think I'm okay. ;)

You look great! I didn't know you before but WW sure proves that it works by seeing your photo. I wish I was committed to it like you.
