Oh and she is why the time is sooooooo bad is Trixie has to stop and pee like a million times! AHHH… Oh well, I’m just happy that we were able to get out and do something!!

We had such a great time! With this beautiful weather we have now, I’m hoping I can come out here a lot more and maybe start running some on the trail! I would have to start running first… But I think I can!

This week will be a awesome week because I’m on vacation!! I’m hoping to make it to the gym a lot and to get the house all together! This week is also anniversary week. YAY!!! 3 years!!! But this means lots and lots of good yummy food!! But I’m hoping by Thursday I will have lost some weight!

Thanks for reading happy Sunday!

Pizza Friday

I bet you didn’t know it was thing but it is! Every Friday at the school I teach at our children order dominos pizza! I can’t ever resist the 3 P’s (pizza, popcorn, and pastries). I struggle every week to not eat pizza! It smells good and is cheese and bready and all sorts of goodness ahhhhhh… I just suffered threw the pain of all of my kids eating pizza and I had cereal; gross, nasty, soggy, bland, and not cheesy goodness. So as I am basking in my bitterness I have decided to find a healthy pizza alternative!

Thinking about having it for dinner y’all!

Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe

IMG_0771.JPG

Ingredients
1 head cauliflower 7 – 8″ wide
1 egg, large
1/2 cup Parmesan or Mozzarella cheese, grated/shredded & not packed
1 tsp Italian (or rosemary, basil, parsley) herb seasoning
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line round pizza baking sheet with parchment paper.
Rinse cauliflower, remove the outer leaves and separate into florets with a paring knife. Place cauliflower florets in a food processor and process until “rice” texture. Some coarse chunks are fine.

Place on a prepared baking sheet and bake for 15 mins.

Remove cooked cauliflower from the oven and transfer to a bowl lined with a double/triple layered cheesecloth. Then squeeze the liquid out of the ball, cauliflower inside the cheesecloth, as hard as you can. Be patient and do this a few times until barely any liquid comes out. Muscle work.:)

Increase oven T to 450 degrees F. Transfer cauliflower to a mixing bowl along with egg, cheese, herb seasoning, salt, black pepper and mix to combine.

Transfer cauliflower mixture onto the same baking sheet you used to roast the florets (I used the same parchment paper but you can swap it for a new one if it gets too soggy), and flatten with your hands until thin pizza crust forms.

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes and remove from the oven.

Top with your favourite toppings and bake again until cheese on top turns golden brown.

Slice and enjoy.

Cauliflower Pizza Crust Recipe

Hit rock bottom…

Yes yes … Here I am back with a total defeat I have managed to lose 14 pounds and gain them ALL back. I am currently in the lowest of lows right now! I haven’t been to weight watchers in 3 weeks. Tonight when I skipped I wanted to throw up. However I then turned around and over indulged on Chinese food! I have a wedding in October, and it’s like with all of my high school friends! I don’t know what’s going on! You would think that I would be super motivated to lose this weight, but I’m just doing worse! Blahhhhh

So here I am trying again!! How many more times I will do this I have no idea! But as of right now I am going to do the right thing. I know no that 90% of the time NO ONE reads this. Apart of me loves that.. And I can use this as a journal. There are times when I would like to use this for accountability I don’t know how I am going to get this blog to that but it’s my goal!

I’m going to try and blog 4 out of 7 days. And talk about lots of stuff with different themes!

Monday meltdown- every week I will weigh just for this blog!
Motivation Monday- inspiration that gets me excited about my goal
Transformation Tuesday- we all know what that is
Workout Wednesday – I will let you know how my works have been going and what I’m doing!! I’m trying to be active daily!
What fits Friday- hopefully soon I will be able to show you what I can now fit in to that I couldn’t before! Or I will let you know some goal clothes!
Sunday funday- weekend rap up and weekly prepping!

Those are just some of my topics. More than likely I will probably just post about what is happening in my life right now and things I struggling with!

Tomorrow it all ends… I’m soo excited to say that because the past 3 days I have been in bed sick and now I’m done. I getting up and going tomorrow! I’m going back to work I’m living a different life I’m going to wake up, have breakfast, do something active, and go to work! If I can’t do that then I will do something active as soon as I get home, or I will go to the gym after work! However I would like to clean the house and get my life clean and back together!

I will let you know tomorrow how it goes fingers crossed and hoping I can do it!
