Oh Hai!

Hellloooooo, interwebs!

I am still recovering from teh sick! And the bike accident I didn’t tell you about. (I am okay, obviously…but I did get a lovely collection of bruises AND a new helmet.)

I am sooooooo tired. I need to go to bed earlier, methinks! When the alarm goes off at 4:30, one should really be asleep before 10.

ANYWAY –

I have lost 75% of the weight I gained during my pregnancy. Considering how much weight that was, I am feeling good about that. However, in thinking back to what I ate yesterday, I think I know why the weight loss has slowed down. Since I am not training for 10ish hours a week, I should probably stop eating like I’m training for an Ironman or something. There were 3 (THREE!) croissant food items in various forms yesterday. That is like 2000 calories just there! (I made that up, it’s probably more. I don’t know.)

One of my favorite internet people does a “what I ate” Wednesday, where each Wednesday she presents lovely photos of all the foods she ate the day before, as well as an awesome recipe for one of those foods. She is awesome. I am not that awesome for a couple of reasons.

  1. I take crap photos
  2. My made up recipes are not very healthy. It’s the cheese. I put cheese in everything.

BUT – I want to do that, too because (a) I am a sheep and (b) I really need to track my eating once/week and showing the internets what I ate will be a good motivation to not put three (seriously – THREE) croissant-like items in my pie-hole.

I don’t have any photos from yesterday, but I will tell you what I ate.

5 am – large coffee w/ vanilla soymilk

7 am – med. skim hazelnut latte

7:30 am – marionberry & cream cheese croissant puff thing that also may have contained crack

10:30 am – plain croissant

1 pm – ham & swiss (on croissant! WTF?)

4 pm – beer x2 to celebrate some exceptionally good news

8 pm – enchiladas of my own devising (see below for recipe of simplisticness)

8:30 pm – 2 dark chocolate kisses; 1 glass of fresca

Hmmm – wonder why these last ellbees aren’t falling off? I couldn’t tell you.

In terms of exercise, I did walk almost 5.5 miles yesterday, so yay!

Simple & Fast (but not so healthy) enchiladas

Ingredients

  • 12 small corn tortillas
  • 1 can fat free refried beans
  • 1 can sliced olives
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (I used colby jack, because that’s what I had in the house)
  • 1 small can of enchilada sauce (although I usually just use homemade salsa verde)

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350*
  • Spray 9×13 pan w/ olive oil spray
  • Mix beans w/ 2 TB of enchilada sauce; heat until spreadable
  • Cook tortillas on hot grill (no oil) until flexible
  • Fill each tortilla with a bit o’ the bean mixture, a TB of shredded cheese, and then roll up & put in pan
  • When all tortillas are filled, rolled, and placed, pour remaining sauce over top of tortillas, then sprinkle with remaining cheese and top with olives
  • If I’d been thinking last night, I would have also topped with lots of chopped tomatoes, as I have tons right now
  • ANYWAY – bake for 20 minutes

Serve – makes 4ish servings with 3 tiny enchiladas/serving.

The sodium would be WAAAY cut back if you used homemade refried beans (not hard!) and homemade sauce (also easy!), but I was lazy, so there you go.

(Also, I would usually serve with a dollop of fat free sour cream, but I was too busy giving my baby sweet potatoes to remember such things. He loves those yams.)

Today – more lattes but fewer croissants! That’s my motto.

    link it up at Jenn’s, bitchass!!! LOVE YOU!

  2. Yeah, those food diaries are real pissers. It does work for accountability though. Although I never make myself count food I eat as “samples” – at Costco, zupans, etc.
