I just wanted to let you know how I am doing with my fitness and eating plan. I try not to let the scale rule me but of course it still does. Sometimes I think I should switch to an every other week weigh in, that way, I won't be dissapointed by the numbers.
The first week I lost seven, the next week I lost five, the third week I lost nothing (ugh! that was rough), and this week, the fourth week, I lost 3.5. I need to do inches too. I keep telling myself that no matter what plateau I hit, to be consistent and develop a new plan of attack. CONSISTENCY is my key! It is what will help me bring this goal home, once and for all.

Speaking of weight loss, let's talk pizza. This may come as a shock to some people but I never really liked pizza. I mean, I like it okay but I am not wild about it. I am wild over other things like hummus or ice cream or my beloved popcorn. Over the years I learned to appreciate pizza. It's the sauce that sometimes I really didn't like. Well, this is a pizza that I totally love. My friend made this type of pizza years ago and I added to it. I just love it now.
The dough is from this post.
2 cloves of garlic, sliced thinly (you will have fire breathing, dragon breath)
1 teaspoon of olive oil
1/4 cup roasted red bell peppers
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 oz. mozzarella, part skim
Roll your dough into a personal pan size pizza. Place sliced garlic all over the dough. Sprinkle on your cheese. Drizzle on the olive oil. Sprinkle on crushed red pepper and place the roasted pepper all around. Bake at 500F on lowest shelf of your oven for 10 to fifteen minutes.
Oh my, its like garlic bread on steriods. Whoa!
