cheesy no more
Happy Humpday friends! Today has been a nasty rainy day, but tomorrow is supposed to be gorgeousss so thats something to look forward to!
Last night when I got home from work I popped in the Body Sculpt Core Fusion dvd. I’m going to try and make sure I do this more often because its a killer workout for me. After dinner I decided to make a calzone. I decided on BBQ chicken. I had some pizza dough from trader joes so I cut it into 1/4ths and took one for my calzone. I rolled it out and got the insides ready. I boiled half of a chicken breast and then chopped it up. I then added some sauteed onions, fresh spinach, some mozzerella cheese and some annies bbq sauce. I closed the calzone and pinched up the ends and let it cook in the oven at 400 degrees for 25 minutes. On the side I sauteed some frozen TJ veggies and added some salt, pep, garlic salt, and red pepper flakes. It was my first time making a calzone and it was so easy! i loved how it turned out.
After dinner was the Biggest Loser. I cried in this episode, I just get so happy for them! I can not WAIT till the finale!!! Last night was the makeover episode and everyone looked soo good and were so happy with their progress so far. i love this show.
Before I went to bed I did 50 pushups. In sets of 10’s and with a good rest break in between. I am AWFUL at pushups but think they are such a good, easy exercise to do. My arms are so weak so i’m hoping to get better at them.
This morning I woke up and was soooo exhaustedddd! I ate my breakfast cookie in bed 🙂 hence the comforter as the background haha.
For lunch I went home and had a Wolfgang soup. Tomato Basil is so good. I love the chunks of tomatoes. I had it with a ham and light cheese quesadilla. yummmyyy. you can see the steam from the soup!
Even though i loveee cheese and have been eating it a lot lately, I know that it is not good for me. I am lactose intolerant but put up with the side effects because of the taste. During my CFW I had no dairy and it felt great! I’ve given up milk, but I really need to focus in on cheese and yogurt 😦 I dont’ want to but it really is the best thing for my body. It’s not happy when it eats dairy and it gives me all the signs. I need to listen to it more and stop ignoring it. I’ve decided to give it up for a month and look at how my body reacts. I know I should just give it up for good, but that seems like such a long time so if I decide on doing it for a month at first it will seem like a much more realistic goal. There really are so many dairy alternatives, so it shouldn’t be too hard. I’m hoping this one month challenge should help my belly feel better and I’m looking forward to not feeling awful after my meals. Luckily I have those vegan cookbooks that are dairy free and have amazinggg recipes.
On a sweeter note, i had two dates and some mighty maple as a snack and it did not disappoint 🙂 these are the perfect dessert.
Well tomorrow is the 16th which means Baltimore Blogger meetup dinner is tomorrow night!! So excited to meet you ladies 🙂 And don’t worry… i’ve already picked out exactly what I’m going to get haha.
Have a wonderful day!!
