Back on Track

As you all could probably tell, the last couple of days have been pretty tough.

This morning, my mom and I really hashed things out, and we’re coming up with a new-and-improved weight gain plan for me! I will reach my goal! Of course, there will still be days that are harder than others, but God has blessed me so much by giving me a wonderful, supportive family! =D

I think I need to wash my hair.....

In other news, the reason I’m so stanky looking in the above pic is because I got in a super-duper awesome workout today! whooo!!! =D Three random cardio videos that I found online mashed together gave me a great 30 minute workout! =D

Two of the vids are already in my cardio section, the 10-min jump rope and 10-min jump start. This third one is also from  SparkPeople, and its a 10 minute bootcamp video. Here’s the link for ya:

Anywho, I usually do a circuit workout and finish up with a 10 min video, but today I wanted a little something different! =D I looove circuit workouts because they combine strength training and cardio so well, but my muscles just weren’t feelin’ today!

Guess what else? I baked my first rolls yesterday! I got the recipe off of Allrecipes.com, but I can’t find it today, so I’ll just post what I used here:

Buttery Rolls

1 C hot water

2 T Butter

3 T Sugar

1 pack instant yeast

2 1/4 C flour

1 egg, beaten

1 tsp salt

Stir butter and sugar into hot water until the sugar has completely dissolved. Let water/butter mixture cool until lukewarm. Dissolve yeast into water/butter mixture. Stir in salt, egg and flour. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes. Spoon into 8 greased muffin tins. Let rise again until doubled, about 30 minutes. Bake in a 425 F oven 10-15 minutes or until done.

These were sooo good!!!! They’re great for those who haven’t made a lot of bread because they’re pretty easy and the ingredients are simple. I have another roll recipe where if you beat the dough too much, you ruin the rolls. This dough is very sticky, but trust me, it works! =D

I still remember all of those other bread recipes on my list! I’ll be getting to those very, very soon!!!! =D

What do you do to switch up your workout routine?

What food cravings do you get most often?

Personally, I crave a lot of chocolate, but not much else that’s sweet. Other than that, its pretty much carbs all the way! =D And salt. I looove salt!

Hope you have a great day! =D
