Lazy Fat Girl Sunday

I’m all for lazy Sundays.  Unfortunately, today has been re-named “Lazy Fat Girl Sunday” because that is exactly what I turned into in 3 short days!

My "Fat Booth" for iPhone picture that Corey refuses to delete...

Remember how I said I think it’s OK to loosen the reigns on healthy eating during the weekend?

What I should have said is that sometimes I throw the reigns on the ground and let the horse run away!

I have eaten terribly this weekend, AND I didn’t work out at all!  This is not happening again.  Starting next weekend, I am going to be much smarter about my weekend eating decisions, and I will certainly not be missing 3 workout opportunities!  One day off is fine, but not three.  I always let this happen, and then all of the hard work I did during the week was for nothing because I gain weight back like it’s my job.  I wish it was my job. Well, as they say, sometimes you just have to get back on the horse!  Are you enjoying all of my equestrian references so far?


OK, I know I already said this today, but I’m seriously done with the egg sandwich for a while.  Obviously, eating the same thing multiple times during a week can make anyone get sick of a certain thing, but then I doubly grossed myself out by chomping into a part of the eggshell that got in there by accident.  Gross!

Baby bye, bye, bye!

Jah stayed with us last night, and we all spent the day lounging around watching T.V.  I did some cleaning and laundry while he and Corey played video games.  Typical.

We decided to go to the movies and see “Hall Pass” because Corey said it had good reviews.  We were starving, but since we were already running late, we didn’t have time to go eat lunch.  Corey grabbed 2 foot-long tuna subs from Subway, stuffed them in my purse, and I brought them into the movie.  Such a rebel.


I was supposed to give the other half of mine to Jah, but, um…I ate it.  I was starving!

The movie was terrible, in my opinion.  A dumb story line mixed with random situations.  I was not a fan of the premise of the movie to begin with because I think it’s utterly ridiculous how this country has destroyed the ideals of marriage and the media sends such a negative message regarding something that isn’t miserable in the least when two people are truly in love and are willing to put forth the necessary effort…..PHEW!  But that’s for another time.

After the movie, we came home and did some more lounging around.  Our friend Buxton came over and brought his new puppy over to play with Bella!

Puppies + a very excited Corey...

Her name is Sookie and she’s a Great Dane mixed with an Akita.  We saw her last week, and she’s already grown to Bella’s size since then!  She’s so cute.

Jah and Buxton left a little later, and Corey suggested that we order a pizza.  I almost devoured my first slice before I got a picture:


Shroom Slice

I really prefer veggie toppings to meat toppings on my pizza, so I was pretty bummed that the mushrooms were so puny!  It was still delish.  And now, I’m stuffed and feel gross, thanks to this wonderful Fat Girl weekend.  I’m off to sit in front of the Oscars and live vicariously through Mila Kunis and all her perfection.  Back to veggies and the gym tomorrow!

Do you tend to over-indulge during the weekend?

It’s Not Delivery…Because You Made it Yourself! Recipe: Broccoli Pizza

I got the inspiration for this recipe from one of my favorite sites that I’ve mentioned before. I changed a few things about it and added my own touches to fit my tastes.  It’s very easy to make, especially when you get help from the store-bought pizza dough!  Pizza has a bad reputation, but it really can be good for you with a few modifications.  First, it is ALWAYS better to get “thin crust”, even when you are ordering out.  Less dough = less calories.  Second, skip the fatty meats and extra cheeses, and try ordering as many veggies as you can.  That’s why I love this recipe- it has 2 cups of broccoli on top!  The dough that I used for this recipe was Pillsbury’s Refrigerated Thin Pizza Crust.  However, if you can find it, it is much better to use a whole-wheat dough (I was very upset that my store didn’t have it!)

Broccoli Pizza

Servings: 12 slices


1 roll of Pillsbury Refrigerated Thin Pizza Crust

2 cups broccoli florets, cooked in boiling water until tender

2 cups Fat Free Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

1/3 cup pre-made Pesto (I used Spice World brand, found with the pre-chopped jars of garlic)

1/4 cup Reduced Fat Feta Cheese

Grated Parmesan Cheese (optional)

salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Spread the dough out on a cookie sheet (sprayed with non-stick spray), and pre-bake the dough according to package directions, 5 minutes.  Take the dough out of the oven.  Cook the broccoli florets in boiling water for about 4-5 minutes, until tender.  Drain and pat dry.

Spread the pre-baked dough with the pesto in an even layer.

Spread the broccoli on top of the pesto in another even layer.  Season with salt and pepper, to taste.  Sprinkle the Mozzarella and Feta cheeses on top.  Bake for another 10 minutes, or until crust is golden brown and cheese is melted.  Sprinkle individual slices with Parmesan cheese, if you want.  Serve hot!
