Join Me For Another 10 Weeks! This is the first week of ten weeks starting October 22, 2012

Hi folks! I'm at it again. I'm going for another 20 pound loss in ten weeks. I've recently had another baby, a little girl, she is now five months old and I'm ready to drop some weight.

Welcome To My Favorite Bakery...

This is where the best doughnuts in town can be found.

Allow me to lead you to the doughnut case.

Can you spy where my chocolate covered cream filled bismark is waiting for me?

Hmmm....I think this one may be the biggest.

Ahhh...I can not wait!

Let's also get some Valentine sprinkled long johns for our younger crew of kids.

And some glazed ones for my husband, Daddy Rainmaker, and our 14-year-old daughter, Darling Rose.

Mission accomplished!

Doesn't that chocolate one look pretty sitting inbetween pink?

I let our kids eat their doughnuts in the morning.

This is just a little break from the broccoli and cucumbers they get every day.

I waited until my 3:00 mid-morning snack time to eat my doughnut.

Our two-year-old decided to brush his teeth...

Take a bite...

Then, brush his teeth again.

But, back to my bismark.
It weighed in at 6 1/2 ounces.
Does that mean that's how much weight I'll gain if I eat the whole thing?

The secret of the inside...revealed to you finally.

So, when I finally did eat this doughnut, It tasted wonderful. I did eat the whole thing. I noticed that I felt a little jittery from all the sugar which isn't surprising when you consider that I have not had any sugar in my diet in the last four weeks.

I also wanted to add that I did end up losing that 15th pound this morning. So, in my mind, I have met my goal weight for eating this doughnut. I would have eaten the doughnut even if I had not dropped that last pound, but it definitely felt good to have it happen today.

Oh, thought you'd also enjoy a little theatrical presentation of Sunshine Mama sick to her stomach after eating all that sugar, white flour and grease.

I take my acting tips from our 14-year-old daughter.

"Lord help me!"

Did you laugh? Good.

So, that's about it for now...
Oh. You want to see the video of me eating it?!?

The reason this hasn't posted until now is because I have been waiting....and waiting...and retrying and retrying and waiting...all night and morning to up load this two minute video clip of me eating this wonderful bismark.
But it won't upload.
I can't even begin to express my perturb-dom.
So, I did take video. I was happy with it, but I can't get it to upload right now. Maybe someone who uploads long-ish (over a few minutes long) video does something that they can share with me. SunshineMeg, your videos are long-ish. How long do you have to wait for them to upload?
I swear...I have to normally wait an hour per one minute of video. So, I apologize profusely. If I can ever get this thing uploaded...believe me, you all will be the first to see it.
Maybe I just need to re-eat my bismark next Sunday!
I'm not sure.
I already have another treat in mind for what I want to eat next Sunday.
Every week I would like to give myself a treat to eat. I'll eat perfect all week long and then reward myself on Sunday.
Well, I hope you all had a good weekend. Eating this doughnut was just as good as I remember it. Now it's back to the daily grind of getting up early and sticking to my whole foods, high protein diet.
Again, I apologize there is no video right now.

But thanks for taking the time to stop by.

Have a good Monday!


  1. I don't know if I'll ever be the same after that food pornography.

    Your kids are adorable and I just love the brushing/eating combination.

    I usually post my vids to YouTube and then use the embed functionality to get them into my posts.

    Good grief.

  2. Oh my goodness, that two year old brushing his teeth...adorable!!!!! Okay, the inside of the bismark looks appealing to me...not so much the outside, and I live in the "donut capital of the world!"

    So funny...of course you made me also made me dream of having tiny, gorgeous, muscular legs like you! I will...somedaay!

    Have a great day Mama!

  3. Glad you enjoyed your Bismark it looks Deliciously Naughty, shame about the video....

    Your kids are GorGeous.:o)

  4. I LOVE your blog! Very inspirational :)

    Can't wait to read more.

  5. Whoo hoo! Glad you finally got to eat that donut and that it was everything that you expected!

  6. That looks so good! I am glad you enjoyed it. Your kids are so cute!

  7. LOVED all the pictures!!!!! And those donuts were so awesome looking, ALL of them - but that Bismark, you're right, YUM. I really like your idea of one treat per week, that's such a good reward especially if you're able to just stop there.

    I don't know if I'm there yet, I think I am not able to be that strict yet but my goal is to be beach ready by summer so I have a while yet. Slow and steady, with a few yummies thrown in. =)

    Looking forward to the video!

  8. Ohh that looks like a very special bakery. I love places like that. The smell, the warmth, YUM! I saw the bismark right away! And the theatrics were hilarious! Stavesacre brushing his teeth while eating a doughnut is something I have never thought of. I'll admit - I like the idea! Haha.

    I am terrible with videos that I take myself. I honestly can not help much. One of the only times it ever worked for me was when I uploaded it while cooking dinner, maybe a half hour or so. I just get my videos from youtube, so those are different. If I can figure it out, I'll be sure to pass it along.

  9. I am so glad you ate that Bismark! I split a small chocolate lava cake with my boyfriend at dinner... not too bad but I worked out hard today for an hour and a half to make up for it and get back on track! I can't wait to see what next week's treat is!

  10. Well, Sunshine, you dont look very convincing to me. You actually look like your enjoying. giving us bloggers false agony. I'm not buying it. The thing I want to buy is one of those bismarks for myself. Very tempting. Thanks for sharing your day with us . LOVE DAD

  11. Ok, I want those muscles girl!! I must must get them... and pronto!

    The End.

    Your envious friend.. Amy ;P
