Hi y’all.  I won’t waste time with small talk.  I didn’t weigh this week which is the way I planned it.  I will be completely done with my Insanity 60 Day Challenge on Friday.  I’m going to take measurements and weigh on Saturday so I can get the final numbers.  I know that it works but I don’t expect a weight loss.  In fairness to Insanity, it’s my fault I haven’t lost weight.  I haven’t done the healthy eating part as well as I should.  I did better this weekend but it still wasn’t perfect.  I know that I’m stronger and leaner from Insanity though.   I’m going to continue to do Insanity  because it’s a positive challenge for me but I’m going to incorporate other exercise rather than doing it every day.  Insanity is tough on your joints so I don’t think you should continue to do it every day after the 60 day challenge.  I want to also try new things…maybe a dance class or something else.

The recipe this week was inspired by Pinterest.  I made a few adjustments to these from the original inspiration.  They are called Taco Cups.  You all should know that I love an easy recipe and it really doesn’t get more simple than these and they are very tasty.  A lot of people use ground turkey and chicken but if you get the lean varieties of those meats, they tend to dry out.  If you get the ones with higher fat content, they are too high in fat.  I prefer to stick with beef but I just get a really lean selection.  I was able to find 96/4 ground beef and it was pretty low in fat.  All you do is preheat the oven to 375, spray a muffin pan, poke small wonton wrappers in the cups and spray them as well.  After that, brown the meat with taco seasoning.  I put a little salsa and fat free cheese in the bottom of the wonton cup, put some of the browned meat on top and then popped it in the oven.  Be careful, these don’t take long and you can easily burn them.  Once they come out, top them with a little more salsa and fat free cheese.  If you have the available calories left for the day, you could top with some light sour cream.  I was able to have four of these for seven points which isn’t bad and I loved the taste of them.  The wontons crisped on the edges nicely.

Meet Grayson Belle Wyatt, y’all.  My parents got a new Great Dane.  She’s pretty cool.  She made miss Pacey a bit but I’m sure she’ll be an awesome addition to the family.  I’m glad she lives with my parents, though…she’s going to be enormous.

My friend Arianne Crow invited me to participate in the Dirty Girl Mud Run with her.  I obliged and had a blast.  It was held at the Talladega Super Speedway.  Essentially, it’s a 5K with obstacles along your way.  You have to crawl around in the rocks and freezing water, walk through mud and do various climbing exercises.  I ran most of the time and was able to complete every challenge.  It was pretty intense, I got banged up and I was incredibly sore the next day but it was really fun.  I’m glad I did it. That’s all I have today.  Have a good week everyone! Holla!
