Had to press pause

So this weekend was full of fun and excitement, two of my favorite people were married and I had the privilege of standing in their wedding. it made for a busy weekend though!

Thursday my workout went as scheduled, I just didn’t blog about it. Had mani/pedi appointment and shopping with the bride then we watched The Vampire Diaries and The Originals premiere. And to top it off my oldest was home from school sick. So I just plan did not make time for blogging to be honest.

Friday was full of packing, Catching up on schoolwork with DD who was still home sick, housework, rehearsal dinner and stalking. One of the bridesmaids who lives out-of-town and I ran to the store to grab things to snack on at the hotel as all of us girls got ready. No one wants to spend a day on their feet with an empty stomach! While we were there it started to downpour so we figured it would be best to fart around the store while we waited the downpour out. The entire time some creeper kept following us around and making odd comments or repeating what we were saying. So then we stayed even longer because we were not about to walk outside in the dark and possibly be followed by this man. The rehearsal and rehearsal dinner went well. My escort was not present so Mr Baby filled in for him so I didn’t walk down the aisle alone. The dinner was pizza, bread sticks and salad. I ate pizza and salad and a bread stick. I was hungry and had no issue in participating in the meal. It was the bride’s favorite meal 🙂 I did a workout but did not make time to blog once again.

Saturday was the wedding day so no workout once again. I got up with the baby and spent time with him before he and his big sister went to Grandma and Grandpa’s house for the night. It was his first sleepover! After all the usual morning activities we were off for hair, then getting ready, pics, and the whole shebang. It was a lovely ceremony and the reception was a blast. they put on a good party. I did not eat too terribly at dinner and skipped the cake (minus one bite) but drank way too much and later int he evening had a slice of pizza. It happens. it was a special weekend and every drink and bite was worth it to me and that is what matters. It was a celebration and I was there to do just that, celebrate! On the plus side I did enough dancing to count as cardio 🙂

Sunday after we had brunch with the bride and groom we checked out and headed out to get the kids. I unfortunately woke up with the back of my right thigh completely numb. It still is. One of the many lovely things about having Fibromyalgia. So no workout yesterday and no workout today. I tried but with my thigh numb I couldn’t keep my balance well enough to do most of the moves in what I felt was a safe way. I understand working out is important, but it is not worth risking injury for. The last thing I need is more pain. I hope I can get back to normal tomorrow. It is really annoying to not be able to do what you want because of some stupid disorder. Sometimes I feel like the fibro runs my life. Who knows, maybe one day they will find a cure?!

So now I need to decide if I just startup on day 30 tomorrow like I worked out all along or if I track back and go back to Saturday’s workout and go from there. Hmmm What to do??

Day 12 & 13 of 120 & Cleaner Chess Pie

What a weekend! Between birthday dinners, weddings, our car puking out, and everything in between I did not take the time to blog for days 12 and 13. Day 12’s scheduled workout was Pump and Burn and Day 13 was a rest day. Granted I think for my rest day I got plenty of cardio in. Gotta love the dance floor.

My food intake was not so great. On Friday when my DH and I went to dinner for his birthday I ordered what I thought would be the cleanest thing on the menu. To my surprise the only thing I should have eaten was the side salad. EVERYTHING was processed. The meal that I ordered didn’t even come out, because they gave me the wrong meal. It happens, I understand. I was kind of wondering why anyone works in their kitchen if no one cooks anything. So I ended up eating instant potatoes and white bread.
Saturday I ate a slice of pizza at lunch leftover from when my friend watched the kids friday. Because I was in a hurry and didn’t want to take the extra 5 minutes to make something. Really should have made a better choice there. At the wedding I had one fried chicken drumstick, peeled off the skin but still. It was fried and also some dressing and a small slice of cake. I had tons of veggies though. And let’s not get started with my beer consumption. How much beer did I drink? I don’t know. So yep, I totally sucked at making good choices this weekend. Do I regret it? YES! Am I going to beat myself up or punish myself for it? NO! Just going to hop back on the wagon and chug along.

So I never took a picture of the Cleaned Up (not 100% clean) Chess Pie I made with my DD. I will at least get the recipe out there and use a generic picture of some to kind of give you an idea what it looks like.

Chocolate Chess Pie. Photo from HandletheHeat.com There are some awesome meals and sinful treats on this site! My pie looked the same minus I finger pressed the edges of my crust

Ingredients:

FILLING:
2 Large Eggs, beaten
(1) 5 Ounce Can of Organic Fat Free Evaporated Milk
1 Cup Stevia in the raw
1/4 Cup Brown Sugar
1/4 Cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/4 Cup Organic Butter, melted
2 Tablespoons Cornmeal
1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
CRUST:
2 Cups Unbleached White Wheat Flour
1 Cup organic Butter, very cold
6-8 Tablespoons of Ice Water
2 Teaspoons Stevia in the Raw
1/2 Teaspoon Salt

Directions:
1. Crust: In a food processor add the flour, Stevia and salt and mix it well. Cut the butter into pea sized pieces and add to flour mixture.  Mix until it is crumbly. There may still be little chunks of butter and that is okay.

2. Add water one tablespoon at a time then pulse. Do this until your dough is still crumbly but can hold together if you squeeze a little bit in your hand.
3. Take your dough and with as little handling as possible ball it up and then roll it out  to fit your pie pan. After it is in your pan cover your edges with foil and pop into the fridge.

1. Filling: mix together the Stevia, brown sugar, corn meal and cocoa powder. Add in the eggs and then mix until it is all completely mixed together. Then add in your evaporated mils, butter and vanilla.
2. Pour filling into your pie crust. It will be very runny and that is okay! Be sure your foil edges are not touching the filling!!
3. Place into your preheated oven and bake for 45 to 55 minutes. Your pie will rise and then fall and crack a little on top as it cool. That is normal and just what Chess Pie does.
