Last night was the last night of my 4-week Boot Camp class. My measurements were taken on 11/16 and last night, 12/3. In that time I have lost:
0.5 inches on my thighs and hips
2.75 inches on my shoulders/bust
1.5 inches on my waist
arms stayed the same
I am pumped! While I wish more came off my hips (this is where I carry my weight), I’m really happy with the results. Three days a week for a few weeks has really made a difference.And more good news…our new treadmill is being delivered next TUESDAY!!!!!
To my spaghetti squash I added Classico Tomato Basil Marinara, nutritional yeast, Parmesan, red pepper flakes, and pine nuts. Deeeelicious!!!!
Failure. Failures, really.
In the December issue of Cooking Light, I found a recipe for cranberries I really wanted to make for the RD Christmas Party THIS afternoon — candied cranberries, more like.
Directions: simmer cranberries in simple syrup until tender. Roll in sugar. Serve.
Anyone can handle that, right? Wrong.
Lesson learned: can’t be watching Bride Wars AND cranberries simoltaneously.
Of this many cranberries…
I salvaged THIS many…sad.
So, I moved on to an easy recipe my friend Katie sent me just this morning (after a speed session of grocery shopping…
1 box chocolate cake, prepared
1 can chocolate frosting
1 bag chocolate chips
2 packages chocolate almond bark
Make cake mix as directed and let cool. Crumble cake into a large bowl and mix in frosting and chips. Roll into balls and place on a lined cookie sheet.
Melt almond bark and drizzle over balls. Cool and serve.
My balls didn’t form, so mine are blobs. More like AFTER a bomb has exploded. Here’s the final product:
I don’t bake or do sweets of any kind very well…can you tell?
Taste? Thumbs up! Mmm! Chocolate lovers, come in!!
I need to doll up for the party, but have a WONDERFUL Friday and start to your weekend! And seriously, the above 2 recipes are easy as pie for the average Joe…and super delicious if you’re looking for something easy!!
