Today was quite a busy day! I am in week 15 for my ESMM Weigh Less classes and we are doing our final measurements, completing evaluations, and discussing how to continue with this weight loss/weight maintenance commitment.
These last 15 weeks have been so much fun and I have all of my wonderful participants to thank! It has been bittersweet as I bid some of my people farewell, but I hope to see them again and know that they are working to improve their lifestyles.
Ultimately, I would love to be a Jillian Michaels. I think she is so motivating and I really wish I could do what she is doing on her new show—go into the homes of families who are struggling with their weight and help them to improve their lives!
On a different note and to those of you who are reading this that may feel like you’ve hit a plateau, here are 10 Tips to Get Off the Diet Plateau: http://www.everydayhealth.com/weight/tips-to-get-off-diet-plateau.aspx?xid=nl_MyCalorieCounterNewsletter_20100421
I think these are some really great strategies to consider! In fact, Santa brought me a heart rate monitor for Christmas and it has really helped me to take my workouts to the next level and push myself harder in my workouts.
I have been working all night on paperwork and didn’t feel like spending a lot of time making dinner, so I made one of my easy go-to dinners: Flat Out Pizzas!
I love pizza and this is a great way to have pizza without all of the calories. For this meal you will need:
- Flat Outs or a low calorie tortilla
- Pizza sauce
- Mozzarella cheese (try to not use more than 1/4 cup)
- Low calorie toppings – I use turkey pepperoni and mushrooms, but you could also use onions, peppers, chicken, etc.
I usually cook my pizza in my toaster oven or conventional oven. In the toaster oven it takes about 10 minutes at 400 degrees. In the conventional oven, I bake it at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. Cook times will definitely vary.
I paired this with a bag of vegetables for a very filling dinner!
