The husband and I are just hanging out tonight with nothing special planned – except for the pizza! We started on the dough this afternoon and it turned out great – doughy and chewy and just the right thickness.
Outings + Snacks
While at the grocery store I did quite a bit of nibbling. Normally if I have just one bite of something (an apple sample, a tiny cheese cube) I just cancel it out with the walking that I’m doing – no need to log something that negligible. But today I nibble on around 100 kcal worth of snacks – a little cup of hot apple cider, a chocolate-covered animal cracker, 2 cheese pieces (small ones), about 1.5 fl oz of wine tasting (4 small samples). Just letting you all know for the accountability!
When we were leaving the grocery the air felt so spring like and warm with sunshine that I craved a walk in the nice weather. We found an errand to run too, so the husband and I walked for 30 minutes to and from the shopping center to deposit a check at the ATM.
Once home we started on dinner. He dealt with the pizza crust while I prepared the toppings and sauce. Husband had a bourbon on the rocks; I had some sips:
The pizza turned out great! We topped it with a little homemade sauce, sauteed green peppers and mushrooms with a little jalapeno and 3.5 oz of colby cheese. 18 minutes of baking later:
I also made a salad on the side to help fill me up. Broccoli, carrots and green pepper with lettuce mix, a little bleu cheese crumbles and some avocado. I drizzled it with aged balsamic vinegar and a new discovery – honey! Together they made the perfect light dressing.
All together for about 600 kcal (425 of that is pizza!)
Ending the night with some vanilla rubioos tea to warm me up…
Tomorrow I need to do the shopping that didn’t get done today, plus a few more things. Then I can relax!! The husband’s birthday is Monday and I’m cooking on Sunday, so I’m not sure if we’re going to celebrate with his mom tomorrow or Monday – but we’ll just flip flop the meals to accommodate. I’m planning to go to the gym first thing, then enjoy breakfast, and then shopping for jeans and birthday gifts – plus some back-to-school supplies at Target 🙂
