Beautiful torture




This week I embark on a nine week challenge with my gym. nine weeks to get super fit and ready for summer. nine weeks of no alcohol*, minimal carbs, stacks of protein and multiple visits to the gym. 
as an indication of what I've signed up for, my personal trainer sent me a text this afternoon, kindly reminding me it was 4pm and not to eat any carbs from then on. hmm, right. so I'm guessing ordering our standard friday night pizza is out of the question. I'm also guessing if i happen to win the prize at the end of the challenge, which is a trip to Hawaii, i should probably send the boy. alone. if he makes it out of this alive.
in the mean time I'll torture myself (and you) with images of these beautiful cakes by maggie austin cakes


* I can handle the strict rules relating to everything else, but, alcohol? No booze for 9 weeks? That's a challenge

LOL. It sound like you are going to be very disciplined. A trip to Hawaii is an excellent incentive.

Hi Jessica - fellow BYW student Leanne here - love your blog and it looks like we are sort of doing a similar thing with our lives. I am in the middle of styling a wedding for next year plus doing a candy table for another wedding in a few weeks! Having lots of fun with it. Look forward to getting to know you over the coming weeks. Leanne x
