Chocolate Cake and Jillian Michaels

This is my downfall.....CAKE. Or cookies, or lemon bars, pie or scones. Bascially anything that comes out of my oven and has sugar in it.
Specifically this is Barefoot Contessa Beatty's Chocolate Cake. You might be able to tell that this piece of cake had been refridgerated. That's because it makes a huge tray of cake and I felt the need to have a piece every night until it was gone. I should have taken it to work but I kept forgetting. And now, I'm being punished by the 30 Day Shred Workout. It's been a while since I visited Jillian Michaels so I started with Level 1 and today I am so so so sore. How did I get out of shape so quickly? I definitely can't promise myself to give up baking during swimsuit season but I can at least put some effort into getting back into shape. I felt like I hibernated all Spring. Aren't you supposed to do that during the Winter? Do you hibernate too?


  1. I have the same problem, but Jillian Michaels punishes me by yelling at me on the treadmill (it has a JM program!).

  2. This cake would be my downfall, too! Delicious!!

    I totally hibernate! :)

  3. I have the 30 day shred too, but I've never been able to go the full 30 days. It really makes you realize how unfit you are when you can't even sit down without being in pain after you do it the first time!
