I love sleep. So after sleeping in until 10:00 and 10:30 respectively over the weekend, let’s just say the only thing that made me get out of bed at a decent hour was that I wanted to make a breakfast calzone for breakfast.
I had leftover pizza dough from a while back – I almost like the dough better the longer it sits in the fridge. I think the yeast does some sort of magic to the dough the longer it sits. This was the tale end of the dough – two weeks is about the limit I’ll keep it in the fridge.
Breakfast Calzone (serves 1) 10 Points Plus
- 3 ounces pizza dough
- 1/4 cup tomato sauce (I used marinara sauce I used for zucchini lasagna later this week)
- 1/2 cup baby spinach
- 1/4 cup black beans
- 1/4 cup liquid egg whites (this was almost lost – I’ll skip it next time)
- 3/4 ounce mozzarella cheese
Roll out dough. Put all the ingredients on one half of circle, then stretch the dough over the toppings and pinch to close. Bake at 375 for 15-20 minutes until the dough starts to turn golden.
I only shot a couple pictures before work, so here is a shitty picture of the inside, but you’ll get the idea.
But I liked how this one turned out. 😀
I loved this breakfast. It was super filling. But I am so out of sorts with working out at lunch that I took the full amount of insulin I needed to cover the meal, so when I went to bike ride, my blood sugar was 107 – perfect, but too low to work out. Luckily I had watermelon and 2 cups of watermelon later I was good to go.
I ended up doing an 8 mile bike ride. Holy shiz my thighs and butt were screaming. I really have only worked out twice in a week and a half – its amazing how it felt as if I hadn’t worked out in months! I had my Blackberry with me – here are some pics of the bike trail – it was gorgeous weather!
Long time readers will know that I adore soup 365 days a year. I’ve been going on Gina’s site Skinny Taste for a while, and I adapted one of her recipes: Skinny Taste’s Pasta Fagioli. The only difference was that I used a whole 28 ounce can of tomato puree, ditched the onion 😀 and only used 1 cup of pasta – I also added zucchini, so it’s probably not a true pasta fagioli, but it was delicious. Since I reduced the amount of pasta it’s 5 points for 2 cups – I ate a piece of my bread I made while I heated up the soup, so lunch came in at 8 points.
This is the pasta I used – it’s called pastina and it’s tiny tiny stars.
I thought the broth needed a little kick, so after I heated up my bowl, and splashed a bit of Tabasco in the broth. Yum.
I had planned on making chicken parmesan sandwiches for dinner. As I started pounding out my chicken breasts, I could feel the beads of sweat start, and even after eating a banana and two glasses of orange juice, my blood sugar was 58. I hate that. Because while I could function to make dinner, once I sit down to eat I feel like I can’t stop eating until I feel my blood sugar rise.
I basically put myself into a food coma. After dinner I laid down on the couch and slept for 15 minutes! Then I just felt fucking full. 🙁
It was delicious though! 2 point bun, 4 ounce chicken, 1 tablespoon whole wheat bread crumbs, baby spinach, 1/2 ounce mozzarella cheese and some tots. Dinner comes in at 12 points.
And thanks to Christina, I was able to buy three bags of Pop Chips for free! Check out the new flavor I didn’t even know they had!
Today is Hannah’s first day of her sophomore year of college and her last year at community college. I’ve posted it before, but here is one of my favorite class pictures of Hannah. She was in the process of growing out her bangs, and I had her hair pulled back – it looked so cute! When I got the pictures back and saw her bangs combed I asked what happened – she said “the man gave us all combs while we were standing in line so I thought I had to comb my hair!”
Stats for Monday
- 30 WW points
- 50 minute 8 mile bike ride
- average blood sugar 82
I am off to do something on exercise on demand, we may have storms later today that would prevent me from working out at lunch. Make it a great day!
