My apologies for not posting the past few days! On Monday I was up to my neck in undercooked pizza dough and lamenting over my major homemade pizza FAIL. Yes, you can close your gaping mouths now–it IS possible to mess up making pizza. Let me explain….
It started innocently enough with a package of Trader Joe’s Whole Wheat Pizza dough. I prebaked it a bit and then added my tomato sauce, squash, peppers, spinach and asparagus with goat cheese sprinkled on top. Apparently I did not 1) leave it in long enough and 2) spray the pan enough because what came out was something of a goo. A tasty goo, but a goo nonetheless. I had a couple blobs pieces of it before wrapping up the leftovers. Here is just an idea of what the mess looked like.
Perhaps I had too much sauce/toppings? Who knows. Next time will be better though!
Although Monday’s dinner was a bust, the rest of the day was good! I started off with a SIAB – inspired by Kath.
You know how I love my smoothies in the morning and I’ve been meaning to try making a smoothie in a bowl. I can’t believe I waited to so long! Into the mix went:
- 1 cup of Almond Milk
- 1 frozen banana
- 1 scoop of chocolate whey protein
- 2 cups of spinach
- 3/4 cup frozen berries
- [me] and goji – “B Thinks This Would Be Better Without Pistachios” and a drizzle of coconut oil on top
This was such a good breakfast! The coconut oil hardened and gave some crunch along with the cereal. The banana definitely made the smoothie much richer and creamier than my normal CCBS.
After work on Monday (before said pizza disaster) I went to the gym and tried out the 45 minute treamill workout I had seen on Tina’s blog. There is a running and walking option and I started off following the running program and ended with the walking program. It was a great workout and I was a hot mess at the end! After the gym (which is in my office) I walked to the CVS about a mile away and then walked home. It was a great workout and it was so nice to be outside!
Work has been busy busy recently but today was my last day until Tuesday. Why do you ask? Because I am headed to North Carolina (Southern Coast to be exact) for my cousin’s wedding then back up to Raleigh to see my two best friends from Elon! Liz and Leland both came up to PA for my birthday in November so it has been over six months since we have all been together and I can’t WAIT to see them.
I’ll have my laptop and camera so expect a couple posts while I’m away! I’m excited for a couple days near the beach. I’ll be heading to Elon this weekend too – back to where it all started 🙂 .
I’ve gotta run, I’ve got some PACKING to do!
