Roman Candle PeppersPosted: November 8, 2011
Well, I finished week one of the Cinch Challenge. That’s about all I can say I did great working out, but only hit 24 of a possible 35 points per week. Remember how my goal was 30? Oops. Better luck this week! Here’s a fitness recap of the week:
- Cardio 5xs! 2 Zumba classes, 2.5 runs, 1 walk
- Strength training 2xs! I’m back to my NROLFW and loving it. I’m sore, of course, because I haven’t lifted weights in 6 weeks, but that’ll pass soon enough.
I did okay with my food, but not great. I’m definitely hungrier with all the working out. Plus, I had 3 birthday events this week! I stated my intention to the world (i.e. on Facebook) that I would only spend $5 for the weekend. As part of the Cinch Challenge you have to pay $1 for every sweet you eat or alcoholic beverage you consume. I skipped dessert at every event so I could spend my money in booze!! And I kept it to $5 even though quite a few people offered to spot me some money…
I did make a couple of recipes, but I had so many leftovers around here that not much cooking took place.
I cleaned out the refrigerator and made Roman Candle Peppers…
I don’t have a picture of the finished product because I left for Zumba. (Side note: this pic was taken with my iPhone 4S and was not edited in any way. Looks pretty good, I think!) These were stuffed with:
- leftover brown rice
- leftover Lightlife “meat”
- carrots, celery, onion, & seasonings
