Or a peanut butter cookie from work that everyone kept saying was “so soft, so good, so tasty”.

30 day challenge

I have been doing a 30 Day Challenge of eating healthy without SWEETS.  I’m talking no cupcakes, cookies, muffins, chocolate, STARBUCKS (I should save some money), or anything of this nature.  You might be asking how this is possible!?

Well believe me,  it is hard but I still try to eat food that will at least kind of satisfy my sweet tooth!  If you know me, you know I have a HUGE sweet tooth!

ME SWEET TOOTH

So what have I been eating to help satisfy my sweet tooth you ask?

I am so excited to announce that I am now a:

GIRL’S GONE SPORTY AMBASSADOR!

Girls Gone Sporty is a “movement”:  

An internet based company, who in time should be able to hold retreats, training, and sponsor teams!  I am part of TEAM RAD because we are indeed that : RAD!

Girls Gone Sporty is all about “Living the Sporty Life” where women can come together to creative a positive and contagious atmosphere that we can all benefit from.  It is about focusing on WHOLE health, enjoying life, and being adventurous and fun while still focusing on taking care of ourselves: mind, body, and spirit!

Check out the website for some awesome articles, recipes, and fitness tips 🙂

I am really excited about this opportunity to work with GGS and hopefully I will get some more FCC readers.

As you probably know, my blog is only a couple months old;  still a baby..  But I have HIGH hopes that Fitcupcaker will take on the world!

Or some of it at least 🙂

I sauteed some stir fry veggie that I bought at Trader Joes, and I also added some fresh carrots and broccoli to the mix.

Add in your chicken, shrimp, and stir fry sauce.

Served over brown rice, perfect.
