So in the last couple of months, I’ve slowly been losing the weight I packed on with a vengeance last fall/winter/spring. I’ve done well mostly, and I’ve been really pleased with my progress. But yesterday and today, all I can think about are sweet, heavenly desserts. 30 Rock is a show I initially thought was absolutely ridiculous, and it is, but I’ve really gotten into it lately. When I watched this particular episode last week, I had to rewind it a couple of times.

Without further ado, I give you Liz Lemon and her cupcake wisdom…

    I love this so much. I’m back on the “real food” wagon after gaining some weight back over the summer (I hate being outside in the heat). I would trade a kidney for a cupcake, yo.

    • “I would trade a kidney for a cupcake, yo.”

      Um, this sounds like Liz Lemon. Scary.

      • Andi

        Ahh, that makes me so happy.

  • Ti Reed

    I am back on the wagon too. I was a WW tiara wearing goal maker before my daughter came along and then it all went to hell. I just started my struggle blog. It’s a blog that I am using to keep track of my struggle because these days, that is what it is, a struggle. I can’t even blame it on the gluten free crap I have been forced to deal with. Plus, I don’t like sweets that much, except for a couple of times a year. It’s just me, bad metabolism from crash dieting and laziness. I hope to fix some of it.

    • Good for you! And yes, I can imagine it’s a struggle. I’ve been trying to eat mostly grain free this summer, but it’s difficult, particularly since I’m not much of a meat eater. But man, sweets get me.

  • 30 Rock is EPICALLY good for the first four seasons, alas it goes downhill from there.

    Tina Fey is my idol, ‘what has two thumbs, speaks limited French and hasn’t cried once today? This moi!’

    • Aw shucks. I guess that’s to be expected. But man she can be funny.

  • I’m back to procrastinating about exercise and watching what I eat. A whole summer “off” definitely did not do wonders for my weight! I don’t even want to think about cupcakes (but yes, now I’m thinking about cupcakes …)

    • Mmmm. Cupcakes. I’ve not thought of anything else for days. ๐Ÿ™‚

    30 Rock is the best! Liz Lemon is my ideal human.

    I was going great just whole eating/back to basics/no processed foods eating. A weekend in Stratford, ON for Shakespeare and other great plays with my mom and great aunt undid a lot of that good work. Lots of good food and lots of sitting- oh my!

    • Sigh. It’s always something, isn’t it?

      And yes, Liz Lemon wisdom is my new favorite thing. I keep texting my brother little gems.

  • Kate

    I’ve never watched 30 Rock but based on that clip, think I need to!

    • It is ridiculous but funny. I can’t help but laugh when I watch it.

  • This summer was a total loss for me on the healthy eating thing. I did well at the beginning but…not so much by the end ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I love cupcakes! I need to get back to the gym but man can I come up with excuses and reasons why I can’t make it. Congrats on your progress!
