Topping off the weekend

YES! I finished Catching Fire...  every time I type that I always feel like the next book should be Breaking Wind. Anyway...

I also got a run/walk in. It's the couch to 5k ipod thingy...   5 min warm up walk. 1 min run, 1.5 min walk. Repeat 8x. then do a 5 min cool down walk and stretch. So a total of 35 minutes. It was quick. It has challenging (since I haven't run since Freshman year of high school). I'll probably repeat this run a few times and then move on to the next one. I don't think I'll be running a 5k too quickly. Just gonna finish the one in March. 

Today is cook day. I baked pork chops and chicken. Enough for the whole week and I've got a couple steaks sitting in the fridge for indulgence days. I put together a menu that I should be able to stick to until I make a little money; teaching on thursday, payday on Friday (finally I'm back to real paychecks) and a babysitting gig on Wednesday. 

Finishing season 6 of Dexter and looking at my stack of books left to read before Friday's library trip. 

This week's goals
- stick to the menu. 
- work out on monday by myself. 
- work out 3x with trainer. 
- have another freaking awesome weigh in! 
- Keep up on all the blog updates, mine and reading all of yours.
- Read 2 more books. 

OH! I forgot... I was texting Jillian. She was asking about health recipes for a picky-eater, since man is coming to visit and all! :) 

Portobello Mushroom Cap Pizzas.
4 large portobello mushroom caps.
1 can of pizza sauce (low sodium, low sugar) or make your own.
Orange pepper
asiago - if you wanna be fancy.
diced onion.  
clean caps. Take out stem.
Put sauce on cap,
Little more cheese.
Bake at 350 for 30 min or until the caps are soft (can be cut through with a fork). 
Big Fat Sunday Kind of Love,


  1. The menu for the week sounds great & so does that mushroom cap pizza:-). You are doing great, just keep at it!

  2. I will try the pizza--you know I'm scared of vegetables, haha. Last week I ate a bite of salad at a dinner party in order not to insult anyone. I also tried some of her baked eggplant. Those are MAJOR MILESTONES, seriously. Then I felt sick later that night and was convinced I was having an allergic reaction to the veggies. Sigh. I'm special, I know.

  3. Yum... I just finished the final book of Hunger Games.

    You are doing awesome!! Keep up the great work!

  4. Oh. I loved, Loved, LOVED the Hunger Games trilogy. I just finished reading it, too. My kids were all agog over the books, so I had to check them out to see what the fuss was all about. Excellent reading!

    Marvelous plan for the week, and Ooooh! It never occurred to me to use portabellas for pizza. Yum!
