Dessert Overload

Dessert Overload

Is there such a thing is too much sweets? I have definitely attempted to figure out the answer to this question by diving into my candy shelf this week. I found leftover Easter candy and all kinds of chocolates to indulge in this week. I ate and I ate and I ate and I ate. I also can’t forget to mention my multiple visits to Chili’s and Rita’s. The amount of custard on the gelati in the photo above was out of control, and I liked it 🙂 With my stomach ache officially over I do believe there is such a thing as too much sweets. Everything should be in moderation and it took me the entire week to begin to realize this again. There is nothing wrong with going to Rita’s or going to Chili’s for bottomless chips or eating your favorite snacks; in moderation. Using portion control is the way I will tackle my healthy living and better diet, not with one week of low carb and the next week of high carb…


I started back up with Insanity this morning only have one more workout before I am finished with the first month! 🙂 I then went grocery shopping so I now have fresh vegetables in the refrigerator for some fun new recipes this week! I will be sharing a few healthy dishes and a sweet treat this week and early next week so be on the look out for those. I’m thinking some pasta salad and tilapia for the next day or so, yum! Until then, I am so honored to be awarded with a few Blogging Awards! The first that I want to share with you all is…

  1. Thanks so much for this blog post! I had a mini sweets break down this past week, and have been beating myself up about it ever since. Good to know I’m not alone, AND that it’s not the end of the world. 🙂

  3. Thank you so much for the nomination. I really need to get my act together and do my part. I am so behind on sharing the love of the awards! I will enjoy poking around your blog now that I have found it! I had my own sweets craziness yesterday. Back to healthy eating today. 🙂

  4. When I want sweets there is no limit for my sweet tooth but I pay the price afterwards so I guess there is a limit depending on when I make the judgement call. That frozen treat looks too good!
