Day 5 - Cake and Bake

On Thursday nights I have my cake decorating class. It's just the first course, which is the basics of cake decorating (different icings, shapes, writing, etc.). I made a cake for my friends birthday tomorrow. Doesn't it look great? :)

The lifestyle change that I'm going through is actually more welcome than I thought it would be. I thought I'd always be hungry, lacking motivation to exercise, and just would give up like previous times, but I haven't. I'm actually looking forward to the change ahead. Not dreading eating "diet foods" and just hoping to get through the day. I know it's just day five, and I'm pretty much in the starting motivational phase, where everything is bright and cheery and a bed of roses. But I really feel different about this one. The only problem I'm having right now are some health issues that are preventing me from exercising like I should be. But hopefully that will get worked out! I'll keep praying. What motivates you to exercise? I'd love to know!


  1. Take that positive energy and run with it. Don't doubt it or feel like it won't last!!! This is your time!

  2. Hi Lindsay

    Just found your blog via Dawne's. I look forward to cheering you on your journey down your personal highway. It's great you have the insight and determination to do this without the gimmicky diets that are out there.



  3. Thanks so much for coming by my blog! Good for you for starting this journey; you will definitely find that the motivation you get from those in the online community will really help keep you going! Love the cake, by the way!

  4. What motivates me is developing the habit of going. At first I'm motivated. Later it's just something that I do—a part of my day. Also, I've been reading the blogs of others because I'm hoping their motivation will rub off on me.

  5. Hi Lindsay, found your blog through 266.
    Wanna wish you good luck on your journey to looking hot and stunning at your prom, every girl deserves to feel like a shining star that night! (or any night really ;)
    Your cake looks real nice for beginning class, you wouldn't catch me take a pic of my first cake LOL
    Have fun along the way, if you got a bummer day, get up and start afresh the next day, because life it a bit of up and a bit of down, but soon you'll find it all becomes second nature, with still a little bit of chocolate in between! :)

  6. Thank you so much everyone for the wishes! You all make it so much better :)
