Who Are We and Why Are We Headed for Shamrock?

We met online in 2005 trying to--what else--lose weight. We've had our ups and downs along the way, but we're not where we want to be. This is our journey to get fit and healthy. We invite you to follow us as we "exercise" our way across the country--track our progress on the map to Shamrock below-- in an effort to each lose 50 pounds by the end of 2009 and adopt a healthier lifestyle along the road.

Where will we go once we reach our goals? The sky's the limit... but we're thinking Greece would be nice.

Cool Cake Corner

In today's Cool Cake Corner segment, I am sharing this delightful and fun Valentine's Day Cake. Isn't it cute? I would love to learn how to do that, especially how to stack the cakes in that wonky way. And how to work with gum paste and fondant and pastillage. Hmmm...how would one learn that?

Oooohhh, I know! I know! I could take a 2 week Masters Course from the Wilton School in Chicago!

I would love to do that. And I may be able to, who knows? I'm not sure that I could get a babysitter for that long, but I am going to use this as a reward for breaking 169. I printed off a reminder for my fridge with a few cute cakes on it, hoping that this will keep me from grazing when I'm not hungry. I also have a few other rewards set up at strategic weight-milestones for added incentive.

For now, I guess I'll just do the best I can with the limited cake knowledge that I have. I'm planning on making some cakes this coming week for Valentine's Day. If they turn out nice, I'll post the pics. Wish me luck!
