Cupcakes: Are You My Frenemy?
Cupcakes. I love you. But are you really worth it? Sure, you're easy to make. With this recipe, I can whip you up in just minutes. You taste even better topped off with this frosting . And there's even frosting left over for next time. And we both know there's always a next time. Because I can't resist you.
Are you my frenemy? Let's be real. I've ramped up my exercising and burned thousands of calories, just so I can keep up with you. I even joined BlogHer's Good Health-a-thon.
On my blog's lower left sidebar, I've written about my exercise goals with a widget called Getting Healthier In 2009. I'm even keeping an exercise log that everyone can see to keep me accountable.
It's been an uphill battle. My weekly goal has been to walk 12 miles each week. I've done it a few times, but not every week. Cupcakes. I'm doing this for you. I can't give you up. I don't want to. But I want to stay healthy.
I know we're not together every week. Just a couple of times a month. But even after you're gone, sometimes you remain with me. And not in a good way. I have to get better at sticking to my walking goal. Then I have to up the amount even. Especially as the weather gets warmer and I can walk outside.
Cupcakes. As I was thinking about frenemies, I saw this interesting video about toxic friendships. I don't think you're toxic, but you sure make me work to keep seeing you. Well, you've got a hold on me. For now, I think you're worth the effort.
