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
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:
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
