National Pizza Week
So word around town is that this week is National Pizza Week, omg what?? That’s crazy!
So for dinner last night, I had pizza (which was already planned before I knew it was National Pizza Week) I had Dewey’s Pizza to be exact.
Before pizza I had the House salad: A mix of Field Greens and Romaine Lettuce, toasted Pine Nuts, Sun-Dried Cranberries and Goat Cheese with the apple cider vinaigrette on the side.
We split the Green Lantern which had Red Sauce, Light Mozzarella Cheese, Minced Garlic, Goat Cheese, Artichokes, and Pesto- I love pesto!!
We also got the Billy Goat which had Olive Oil, Minced Garlic, Light Mozzarella Cheese, Goat Cheese, Sun-Dried Tomatoes, Green Peppers, and Fresh Tomatoes-
Yesterday’s breakfast was;
1 whole egg
1/3 cup liquid egg whites
S & P
Microwave for 2 minutes; stirring about every 30 seconds.
Sprinkle cheese on top.
I literally ate them on the go- in the car on the way to work 🙂 When I got to work I finished my breakfast with a grapefruit.
When I was little my mom would cut the grapefruit in half and sprinkle sugar ALL over it! I loved this when I was little although it wasn’t the healthiest. I didn’t think I would like grapefruit without sugar, but I was wrong.
If you don’t like grapefruit because it is too tart, just eat it again, and again, and again, and finally you will love the flavor like I do!
When I work 10-12 hours, I have to think ahead and pack all my food in little zip lock baggies. This is my meal preparation the night before:
My afternoon snack was my go to protein shake, cookies n cream flavor just mixed with water and a little bit of ice. I like my shakes COLD! I also had some baby carrots.
Fibrous carbohydrates (carrots) not only help suppress appetite, but they help increase the absorption of protein that you ingest!
Here is a vegetable list of other fibrous carbs:
If you aren’t a vegetable fan you can try oats, brown rice, or red potatoes that digest slower also.
For lunch at work I packed leftover Kale, Chickpea, and Sausage soup with a salad which was a mix of romaine lettuce, cucumber, tomato, feta cheese, and sliced almonds.
2 granola energy balls with blackberries. I wish I would have packed more berries because they were SO good!
Enough of all the zip lock bags…
Let’s talk products and more food! So lately there’s some food I have been wanting to try. I just need to get out and buy it.
My friend Susan at work was telling me about this stuff! She drinks it in the morning with her overnight oats instead of adding yogurt. I really want to try it!
4. Oikos Toasted Coconut Vanilla Greek Yogurt

I did 20 minutes on the elliptical followed by a triceps and legs workout with a bonus abs/butt workout at the gym and burned around 600 calories! It was a great workout and I really broke a sweat! You can look back at some of my previous workout on my fitness page.
Russian twists- 40
Planks for 45 seconds
Lay on the floor in this position for 3 minutes.
Squeeze your buttox and alternate right and left. For one minute raise up on your tip toes and continue the same thing. The last minute bring your knees together to feel the burn in your thighs too!
For lunch I made a ham and egg white wrap using the following:
Put in on the panini grill and wala!
We went to my husbands work Christmas party which was an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party.
