In honor of Dairy Queen’s 25th birthday (wow, I’m as old as the blizzard!), my boyfriend Andy and I hit up a local DQ for the birthday blizzard special they had: buy one blizzard and get another one for $0.25! Score!
That was our lunch yesterday as I drove him to the Atlanta Airport for his flight back to Ohio. I enjoyed an oreo blizzard with reese cups added and he had the pecan cluster blizzard. Mine was absolutely perfect and we both polished off our blizzards with no problem! I love getting ice cream for lunch 🙂
As I mentioned, my boyfriend Andy lives in Ohio and I live in Georgia for my job. I am relocating back to Ohio at the end of June, so for now we do the long distance thing.
Andy came in on Friday evening around 7:45pm to Atlanta. We got a hotel for the evening since it’s a 2.5 hour drive back to my place. We got dinner at a local place that is known for their gyros. I don’t eat lamb meat, so I opted for the chicken gyro, while Andy got the traditional gyro.
It was DELICIOUS! They came with a side of wedged potatoes with a great sauce. Definitely hit the spot! I forgot to snap pics, but trust me, it was great! It was one of those hole in the wall restaurants that look terrifying, but the food is just amazing.
We relaxed the rest of the evening and enjoyed a couple of beers back in our room while watching TV. I’m really looking forward to doing this every week once I am back in Ohio!
Saturday was much of the same! More relaxing and movie watching. The weather was rainy, so it was a great day to do nothing! We munched on some chips, salsa, and guacamole that I made. I also whipped up some margaritas, which I love. We really didn’t ever eat a real meal on Saturday, just snacked all day, which is sometimes fun to do!
Boo and Sophia were so excited to have another person around to play with! Andy loves to wrestle with them and the enjoy it just as much!
Sunday, I said goodbye 😦 But I will be seeing him in a few weeks for a wedding we’re going to, so I have that to look forward to!
Dinner last night was one of my favorite meals: PIZZA (hence the blog title!). I made the pizza using $0.50 dough mix that I get at Walmart. All you do is add hot water to the dough mix, form it into a ball and let it rest for 5 minutes, then press it into a pan, add toppings and bake! It’s so simple!
Add 1/2 c of hot water to the mix. Mix together with a fork until it starts combining. With floured fingers, from into a ball and let rest for 5 minutes
Formed into a ball…
Then place some flour onto a cutting board (or on the counter) and knead the dough a few times. Place the dough onto a pizza pan and using your finger tips, press the dough outward, expanding the dough to the desired size
Bake the dough at 450 degrees for a few minutes then add desired toppings. My pizza included:
- Pizza sauce
- 1 can of diced tomatoes
- Mozzarella cheese
- Taco blend cheese
- Parmesan cheese
- Garlic powder
- Red pepper Flakes
Fresh tomatoes are way to expensive right now and canned tomatoes work quite well on pizza!
Bake for approximately 12 minutes at 450 degrees
I polished off half of the pizza while watching “The Proposal”..cute movie!
This morning started out with a 2 mile walk with the dogs, which was nice and pretty uneventful. The squirrels must have been in hiding today!
I was in an egg mood once again, and opted for my go-to breakfast of 2 eggs over easy, a whole grain english muffin, and some strawberries with coffee to drink
I also drank 1 liter of water, which I usually do with breakfast each day, along with my coffee. Yep, I pee A LOT!
The Group Exercise schedule has changed at my work due to the semester coming to an end, so I no longer teach early morning classes. I am able to do my own thing now, which is a nice change of pace. I did a combination of weights and cardio.
I started with 30 minutes on the arc trainer followed by a quick weights circuit, which consisted of the following:
- Bench Press
- Lat Pull Down
- Hamstring Curl Machine
- Seated Cable Rows
- Leg Extension Machine
I did it circuit style, meaning I went from one exercise to the next without any breaks. I did 3 rounds of the circuit and did each exercise for 15 reps. I have not lifted in over a month, so even though I took it easy, I will probably be sore tomorrow!
Do you lift weights?
If so, do you have a set routine?
What type of split do you do currently (example: full body, upper lower, circuit, etc)?
What is your favorite blizzard?
