Stretch it out! I've been fussed by a fellow gym rat for my lack of stretching. This is why I stay injured. Stretching to me is kind of like waiting for your nails to dry. I HATE to do it. I'm a busy body, hence I'm always on to the next task. Stretching and waiting for paint to dry are not high on my priority list. Anywho- I've Challenged myself to stretch to one song at the end of every work out. I picked these two "stretching songs" the last two work outs, and guess what? No injury pain. *Happy Dance*
Hunter Hayes- Wanted
Robin Thicke- You Center Me
Ok now what you all really want to know about-
Taco's! Ole Ole Ole!
I LOVE Mexican food, ie cheese and carbs. MMMM. Last night I was craving Mexican. I didn't necessarily want to make one of my casserole favorites, because they're time consuming, and my melodramatic self was starving.
Light Bulb Appears- Quick and Easy Tacos to the Rescue!
Tilapia (1 fillet per Taco)
Fat Free Plain Greek Yogurt
Salsa of Choice
Reduced Fat Mexican Cheese
Corn Flour Tortillas- 110 Calories for Two
I grilled two pieces of Tilapia and set them to the side, seasoned them with Tabasco's Chipotle Flavored Hot Sauce and Lemon Juice.
Next I combined 1/4 a cup of Fat Free Greek Yogurt, and 4 tablespoons of Pineapple Peach Salsa (Great Value brand- holla for a dolla!). I mixed these two together and microwaved until warm- about 30 seconds. (Makes two tacos)
Throw in some shredded lettuce and a dash of Reduced Fat Mexican and Cheese wrapped in a corn flour tortilla and Voila!
Guiltless Skinny Girl Mexican Night!
I calculated these to be 228 calories per Taco. I had over 600 calories left for the day at dinner, wild crazy busy day at work left almost no time for snacking. I took advantage and had TWO fish tacos. I served it up with two cups of steamed broccoli. Mmmmmm hungry girl was very very happy!
I will definitely make these again,
and maybe with chicken this time.
I know, I'm just getting totally crazy!
The daily pic is back!
Mr. Noel had time to take my pic this morning.
I'm mid sentence.
I asked him what he thought of my outfit
He says " Yeah it's cute, It looks like something Alicia Silverstone would wear in Clueless"
My Response- " AS IF!"
Happy Hump Day Peeps! Let the weekend countdown begin!
