Foodie Friday: Winning

Workout: 15 minute hot-legs workout + 15 minute no crunch ab exercises

I used to think cardio was the only way I could loose or maintain weight, but adding weights and yoga makes it so much more fun :)

Today's workout was just what the doctor ordered, too! I'm still recovering from the cookie/cake binge c/o my co-workers. I know it wasn't a binge, but sugar on top of sugar is probably not a good idea ;)

Putting yesterday behind me, I broke out one of my Pumpkin Pie Burritos I stored in the freezer for breakfast and let me tell ya, they hold up well! I just let it thaw over night and it was ready to go this morning. The convenience makes it 2x as good :)

For lunch I had my roasted veggie salad case, but I was starving so I completely forgot to snap a pic until the last and final eggplant layer. I always try to save the best tasting veggie for last. What's your favorite veggie?

No bean burritos for snack time today, the office is deserted on Fridays. Instead, I had some Chobani goodness :)

For dinner the combo was:

corn + cream + bacon =a Winning meal
  • 1 onion (or 2 - I can never get enough sauteed onions!)
  • 8 slices bacon
  • 3 cups corn
  • 1 T flour
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup table cream
  • 1/2 - 1 cup milk
  1. Saute onions + bacon until bacon is cooked. Drain as much bacon fat as you can.
  2. Add corn and saute until warmed through
  3. Add flour and stir
  4. Add cream,chicken broth and milk
  5. Stir and simmer until desired consistency
  6. Enjoy!
I topped mine with avocado and shredded cheese - so glad we stayed home for dinner :)

Plus, we made some chai tea smoothies for desert. It's 106+ today, the ac + me are bffs!

    Speaking of "Winning," I just had to share this post, Dad Takes on_Biggest Challenge. I loved this quote:

    "My daughter even ASKS me to braid her hair now. Which, as you can imagine, is the total Charlie Sheen version of winning."

    One year when I was 6 or 7, my dad was responsible for getting me to school. As hard as he tried, he couldn't even handle pig tails so a couple of weeks later they gave me my first pixie cut!

    Too bad I turned out just like him, cause I can barely master the hair-in-a-bun. Judge for yourselves:

    So not winning!

    Did your dad ever have to pull braid duty?

    Have a great weekend :)
