Kim Kardashian made a chic arrival at the premiere of Tyler Perry's Temptation in Atlanta yesterday. The film will mark her first big role in a motion picture, which also costars Vanessa Williams and Brandy Norwood. Kim dressed up her baby bump in a custom-made black lace top and textured Kardashian Kollection leggings as she opened up about her pregnancy on the red carpet. She said, "Being pregnant is not as easy as my sister made it look or my mom made it look. It's a little more painful. I've gotten sick a couple times." Kim reportedly suffered a miscarriage scare last week and was ordered by a doctor to rest up.
I've resolved to eat less sugary treats after a decadent holiday season of indulgences, and I knew I'd somehow justify popping the candy if I didn't get rid of it so I gifted the packages to the nice dude that works the front desk at the gym. I'll certainly be more careful about where I stash snacks in the future. Temptation totally avoided.

I jumped into the Give It Up Challenge by giving up sugar and processed foods, and while I was able to avoid temptation the first week, I did cheat just a little bit in week two. I went to dinner with a friend and when the waiter pushed a sugary happy hour rum special on us I decided the treat and celebration was worth the cheat.
To see how I made up for the syrupy splurge, keep reading.
I had given up meat for a week and a half. At home, my husband and I cooked up a variety of meals full of veggies! Absolutely no meat for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Sure I had started to miss meat but when there is no meat in the fridge, it is an easy temptation to resist.
My husband never signed up for the challenge, so the minute we ended up at a restaurant for dinner, he ordered a juicy bacon cheese burger complete with French fries. As I still have another two days of no meat, I ordered a grilled cheese and tomato soup. Hoping the melted cheese would be close to substitute for a juicy burger. Once our meals arrived I couldn't resist eyeballing his burger, it smelled just delicious. Unfortunately, my grilled cheese and tomato soup couldn't stop me from having just one bite of that juicy burger. I savored every moment of it and then went back my vegetarian plate. I did feel a little guilty for falling off the vegetarian wagon for just a moment but I quickly got back on. Do you miss your vice?

My hubby is big into snacking, and I'll tell you that it takes a tremendous amount of willpower for me to watch him eat without enjoying a few tasty bites myself. Even if I'm not hungry, I still feel the urge to munch on something when I see someone else chomping away. What about you?
Pastel coated candy and egg shaped chocolate are tasty April indulgences, and there's a chance you're still on a sugar high from the holiday weekend. When you head to the store to buy ingredients for this week's healthy meals, resist the urge to pick up bags of discounted candy.
It's easier to justify spending money on junk food when it's half-priced. While that bag of peanut butter filled chocolate goodness costs less than it did just yesterday, it still has the same number of calories. Many of us have a difficult time passing something up when it's a good deal, but don't compromise your healthy eating habits by buying bags of candy to simply have on hand. There's a good chance your hand will be reaching for that candy when you'd normally opt for something else.
One way I keep unhealthy foods from entering my body is to steer clear of them. I like to think the whole "out of sight, out of mind" theory works well for me. As it turns out, Reuters reported on a new study that has found that keeping sweet treats may actually help you stick to your diet.
In fact, the study found that challenging yourself to resist temptation may even be more effective than banning all sweets and snack foods from the house. Oh, man. I'm not sure about this. What do you think? Does overcoming temptation make you stronger in your healthy endeavors or does it just make you hungrier?
Yes, Thin Mints are my weakness, and actually anything made or coated with chocolate, I just can't resist. I don't think there's anything wrong with giving into your temptations and enjoying a few tasty bites. However, if I ate too much chocolate all the time I'd feel pretty crappy (and end up gaining a few extra pounds), so that totally helps to curb my cravings. Here is the thing: I'm human and if chocolate is in front of me, it can be tough to pass up. So I try to avoid temptations by only buying chocolate in bite-size pieces (instead of huge bars). Since I love to bake with chocolate, I also try to make cookies and treats for occasions or when I'm having people over. That way I can enjoy a cookie (or three), and share the rest.
So speak up and tell me, what do you crave the most and how do you stay strong in the face of temptation?
I don't watch a ton of TV, but there are definitely a few choice shows that I hate to miss. The Biggest Loser, of course, is top on my list, but I'm also a fan of The Office. After dinner, when the kids are in bed, it's nice to relax on the couch but there's one problem.
What is the deal with the obnoxiously decadent, food commercials? Pizza, ice cream, hamburgers, all you can eat this, and stuff your face with that! I know it's stupid to get upset about this, but what are they trying to do to us? Well, I know what they're trying to do. They want to tempt us into eating more food (and hopefully theirs). It's just so annoying because I'm trying to be so good and not eat late at night after dinner, but then videos of melted, cheesy goodness flash before my eyes. It's gotten to the point where I change the channel to avoid seeing these kinds of commercials.
