Hey y’all. I do wish your Tuesday is going well. Mine is OK. There was a seriously intense/crazy storm in Tuscaloosa last night and the power was out in my apartment. I have never seen such lightning and the thunder was insane too. All of that combined with the heat in the apartment made for a not so great night of sleep but I seem to be functioning pretty well. Because of the lack of sleep, I was best friends with my snooze button this morning and didn’t get nearly enough walking in so I’ve decided the only remedy for that will be walking/shopping after work today.
I am sure you have caught on to the fact that Monday nights are my usual recipe nights and luckily, I was able to make my Strawberry Crepes last night before the power went out...
They were very yummy...and kind of pretty if I’m being honest. I was able to have 4. I am always looking for recipes that maximize the amount of food I get. These could work with any fruit really but strawberries are in season and these were very sweet and filling. I would definitely make them again. It’s basically just a pancake batter that you spread over the entire pan to make it thin and then you fill with fresh strawberries and top with powdered sugar. There wasn’t much to it. I think I may do recipe night this week on Sunday instead of Monday. My parents will be out of town and it will just be me and my Oma...it will be nice to share my recipe night with someone! I will have to see what I can make!
I had a great weekend...Cassandra, Jordan & I went to see Colbie Caillat at Alabama Adventure Saturday night and despite the fact that it was miserably hot, it was a great concert. We were able to get pretty close seats because we got there early and it was first come, first serve. I have posted a video and some pictures below. The video isn’t great quality. The sound is a bit muffled and because of the lights, you can’t see her very well but I posted it and you can look at it if you want to.
As you can see, we had a fun time. She really is one of my favorites and it always makes me very happy to see my faves in concert.
I know that I am constantly changing things up when it comes to challenges in my diet and exercise and I think I’ve discovered a new challenge to try. As you may know, I cheat all day on Sunday and there are many times when it makes me feel really sick because I totally binge on cheat day. I’ve decided that instead of cheating all day Sunday, that I would have one cheat meal on Saturday and one on Sunday. It can be any meal on those days but I am going to count the rest of the day. This way, I can still get the food I want but not all at once. I will give myself 15 points plus whatever I earn in activity points (points you get from exercising that I usually don’t count but I am going to start counting them on weekends only) and then one meal that is a cheat meal that I don’t count. I am going to try this for a little while. I think it will be good because I am getting a break on both days and then working for anything else I want (dessert, a cocktail) by exercising. We will see how it goes. I am all for trying new experiences when it comes to Weight Watchers...just to mix it up. If it doesn’t work, I will go back to the way it was. Also, after my heinous 1 million step project is over, I’ve decided I would exercise at least 45 minutes every week day and at least 30 minutes a day on Saturday & Sunday. You know, keep moving, keep pushing toward health!
Enough rambling now!
Have a good night!
“If that's the way you love
You've got to learn so much
If that's the way you say goodbye
And this is how it ends
And I'm alright within
Never going to see me cry
Cause I've cried
So go on, go on and break my heart
I'll be okay
There's nothing you can do to me
That's ever going to burn me
So go on, go on and leave my love
Out on the street
Better believe I'm fearless, fearless.” Fearless-Colbie Caillat
