Here is my week in review via my instagram photos. (Is anyone else sort of in love with instagram?? i actually woke up the other day and liked because i wasn’t 100% ready to get out of bed yet… just me?? Okay, i can accept that!)
I’ll start with my foodie successes!! I usually eat the SAME things every other day! Habit? Easier to track my food? I’m boring?? All of the above? It’s easy to eat the same things that you like when you’re single! Probably the only perk of living single. I can the same things, AND i can have breakfast any time i want! I will have to find a man that likes breakfast for dinner!!
BUT, back to my successes. I made both a fantastic gluten free/dairy free cauliflower crust! :) I had a fouled attempt earlier this week… but the second try was WELL worth it!!! The first round was delicious, but it just didn’t crust like it should have. I tried to be sneaky and use Coconut Flour. I have the WORST luck with coconut flour? I’m starting to think that it dries out so quick because of altitude. Well, second time around I used Caralyn at Gluten Free Happy Tummy’s recipe! It was yummy!!! Found here: http://glutenfreehappytummy.com/2012/07/21/cauliflower-pizza-party-a-graduation-gf-v-bed-scd/ I also added some spices to the mixture.
I really need to work on my presentation for photos… I loved it! I actually used half of it for dinner, and saved the other for lunch the next day. The second day was actually pliable and I was able to use it as a wrap! Even better! Two recipes out of one!!
The second one I made was from Laura at Sprint2theTable. I am now obsessed with recipe, plus a few others of hers!! It seems like I have a very similar palate to her. I made her PB & Aggs recipe!! It was delicious!! http://www.sprint2thetable.com/2012/08/pb-aggs-wiaw/ I think i also added 1/2 banana to it too, and then I put the mixture into a left over Peanut Butter container. I LOVED it! and I wasn’t hungry for a while… even betteR! Protein does that for you!! The bread in the photo is the Julian Bakery Paleo Coconut bread.
I HIGHLY recommend anyone following a gfree diet follow these two gals!! They both have a wonderful variety of documentation on their recipes and meals. :)
In regards to my fitness… I took a challenge via the gals at Tone it Up from Instagram yesterday! They said “drop and give me a plank”, SO I DID! :)
The other big accomplishment in my “Allergy Fitness” life, was that I completed my Hybrid of Chalean Extreme and TurboFire. I am going to miss my program until I come back to it. I hadn’t done Extreme in a while, but wanted to a change from the heavy cardio. This is a great hybrid, because it gives you a mix of both worlds. You don’t get bored easily!!
I also took my “After” photos for the FIRST TIME EVER! Does it ever get easy to pose in a bikini?? And then post the results??
:sigh:: i did it!!
very pleased with the results, but embarrassed… that’s my old insecurities rearing their ugly head…
I will have to do this on Friday’s from now on! Considering almost all my photos go up on Instagram. I could post for days of all of Fumble’s photos too! lol!
Just as an aside… it’s a full blue moon today.
