Diet Sprite Confetti Cupcakes

I've been itching to try this since I saw it online and finally got around to it today. Its really a very simple recipe and the results that are very tasty.

Baking pan and baking cups.

 Box of cake mix, measuring cup, and Sprite Zero.
Mixing bowl :)

Now would be a good time to preheat the oven to 375.
 Put mix in the bowl.
Add sprite and mix together.

 Fill baking cups 2/3 full.
Bake 18-25 minutes, until golden brown. Let sit and cool down before eating.


Total CalsL 170 per cupcake.

Day 5 of 240:Operation Mrs. Gunn/Wedding

I started this challenge last week, figuring why wait for the first or beginning of the week, the best time is right now, so I started tracking then.

Basically, I'm tracking my food with, trying to keep my calories between 1200 to 1500 cals, focusing on healthy grains, fruit, veggies and lean protein. Aiming for 96 oz of water daily and burning at least 500 cals per day. I seem to have a hard time sticking with one particular program, so I am starting with Jillian Micheals Body Revolution, 30 mins every morning, and then 30 mins of some type of cardio every evening. :) Simple and easy, I weigh every Friday and track everything in my journal.

My goal for my wedding is to lose 100 lbs from where I am now, and with 6 months it breaks down to 4.2 lbs per week, doable I know, especially since when I weighed in on Friday, I was already down 8.4 lbs, so definitely motivated.
