* Body
Jeff and I did some strength training at the gym, all upper body to give my leg a break.

I did take Jack for a mile walk- he was angrily pulling the whole time. I don’t know what’s with him lately.

My mom and I are planning on some light cardio tomorrow morning..but unfortunately all of your lovely well-wishes seem to haven’t healed my foot/knee issues magically as I wish they would have. We’ll see…

Today’s class was lab orientation and equipment- which was pans, pots, dishes, bakeware and utensils and we went over measuring ingredients…. we had to clean all of our dishes and organize our own group’s kitchens- It was actually kinda fun! No quiz today, it will be on tuesday but will include more terms now.

Dinner with my lovely friend Andrea. It was SOO nice to chat the night away with her because we haven’t seen much of each other , we were going through withdrawal I think! We saw each other a few weeks ago but that is equivalent to a lifetime!

My mom arrived in Raleigh and is at my brother’s place for the evening. She oftens stays with Jeff and I or I get to spend the day shopping with her etc. so I am happy she gets some qt with my bro.  We are planning on leaving town before 2 but maybe earlier. I forgot to pack- eeek! oh well, tomorrow morning while I have coffee will be nice.

I used the last of the chicken salad ( jeff took some for lunch too) and made this guy- times two!

Pizza, Salad, and Wine!!

It was a Kashi frozen pizza and absolutely delicious! It had feta, spinach, tomatoes and red onions. I really enjoyed this !

I had a second glass of wine just so yall know! We discussed a research study this week in Vitamins class that studied a group of participants instructed to have 400 ml of red wine ( two big glasses) DAILY for one week- They measured their plasma (blood) antioxidant levels afterwards and found incredible amounts of antioxidants that decreased their risks of cardiovascular disease!  While drinking this much daily for prolonged periods could have more unhealthier side effects (liver effects, weight gain, less nutrient dense food inake…) than just high antioxidant levels, I’ll say yes to Vino!

Heck YES for that wine study–I’ll be thinking of it this Saturday as I gulp it down at the in-laws’…hehe πŸ˜‰
I am dying to try the Kashi pizzas. I love that the crust is whole grain (unlike the Amy’s ones, right?). I think you do such a great job of making your favorite foods healthy. Love it.
Happy weekend to you!

You are a lucky duck having today off- enjoy it bud! That pizza looks fabulous. So I really love your new word press blog!! The only thing that irritates me about word press is that the comments button is at the top of the post? Whats up with that? Thats not user friendly!

Thanks Lara!! Oh goodness my thoughts are with you at the in laws this weekend! and hey, at least you have the “go ahead” on gulping down the wine!

Thanks Lauren! You are so supportive-hope you had a great night as well

Erica you are too cute! I appreciate your thoughts on wordpress- I didn’t realize the comment thing is at the top either- That IS such a pain in the butt- maybe they will read enough comments and change it!?!

Thanks VeggieGirl You too!!!

Sweet and Fit

lab orientation and equipment? does this mean your experiments are with baking and recipe-making?!?!!

I think it is your theme that has the comments on top, not necessarily WordPress itself. I have seen WordPress blogs with other themes that have comment section on bottom. Mine is like yours, though. Try playing around with themes for one the way you like it!
