Happy Friday!

Last night we had dinner as planned, individual pizzas on whole wheat pita bread. Finding a good bread is hard to do these days. If you look at the ingredient lists they are pretty scary. Who knows what all that stuff is right? The pitas we went with only had 4 ingredients, and I was able to pronounce all 4. I ended up putting turkey pepperoni and chopped green peppers on my pizza. Chris had all pepperoni of course. We didn't plan on having dessert (never do) but Chris was in the mood to make cupcakes for a co-workers birthday. So he pulled out his Martha Stewart cupcake book and our Kitchen Aide mixer and got to work on some Buttermilk Cupcakes with homemade chocolate frosting. I am married to a regular Rachel Ray here. I was able to sample the dough before bed and it was great! Not to sweet......... I was sleeping by the time they were done.

This morning I woke refreshed (went to bed at 9:00pm) and headed downstairs for pre-workout breakfast. I ate a hard boiled egg and 1/2 of a cupcake. The cupcakes were staring at me, I couldn't help it..........

My workout today was lower body weights to keep my legs in good running shape. The PT must be doing some good because I am feeling very strong and no pain. I did 10 mins warm up on the eliptical and 50 mins weights, and 10 mins abs. I really need to get a good ab workout in soon. When you leave abs to the end you tend to skimp on them. There is a 5:00 shadow of a 6 pack on my stomache. Almost there. I have to remember though, abs are made in the kitchen. There is your tidbit for the day. LOL!

Post breakfast today was the rest of my cupcake, 1/2 cup rolled oats with strawberrys and blueberrys and 1 egg + 2 egg whites. Oh and of course some hot sauce.

Snack today will be sea salted mixed nuts. I also have more vanilla Greek yougurt but I think I have had enough sugar for the day. One cup has 20 grams. I may nuke some crab dumplings later for my 3:30pm snack. I am playing it by ear. I brought the remaining cupcakes to work so I won't be tempted later.

Lunch today will be more leftover chicken fajitas with low fat sour cream and hot sauce. It's Friday and our kitchen is empty. I am trying to eat all the leftovers.

I am thinking Greek food for dinner. Possibly a Greek salad with chicken.
