When Temptation Lurks...

Saturday, August 02, 2008


Before going to a Church Breakfast or Wedding Shower or someplace I know temptation lurks, I make myself a CHEESECAKE SHAKE to drink in the car on the way (I added two of my recipes on SparkPeople Recipes.)

This FILLS me up and gives me the sweetness I enjoy so I am not tempted. At the event, I give myself a plate of fruit and TALK AND LAUGH with people... I don't miss a thing!!! I am full!!!

    I will try your recipes sometime soon-

    I like your idea of having something sweet before an event.

    I have a birthday party to attend tomorrow for my friend's son. I do not want to be attempted to over indulge. I shall keep your strategy in mind before I go.
