That Saturday Thing

First the good- one of you asked for the recipe for the pizza we made on New Year Eve. It is very easy, very healthy and very tasty

Wrap Pizza ( 260 calories, depending on brands used)

1 La Tortilla high fiber tortilla( or comparable brand)
2 T hummus ( I use red pepper hummus or plain)
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella
2 large mushrooms, sliced

optional toppings - 1 T bacon pits, cooked sausage, leftover turkey or chicken ( calories will go up according)

Place tortilla on a cookie sheet, spread with hummus, sliced mushrooms and cheese. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes( till cheese is melted and the tortilla is the level of crisp you want). We serve these with either a tossed salad or raw veggies

Now on to the not so good- weigh in. Monitoring what I eat, doing 30 minutes of rowing and 20 minutes of Pilates 20 minutes 6 times this week, and the results are

Me- UP 1.2 lbs ( I seem to do better not exercising)
Hubby - DOWN 3.0 lbs
Son ( who also exercised with me) - UP 1.6

Seriously I am thinking the gain is muscle mass gain . I intend to do the same pattern this week, because I honestly believe it is muscle mass gain, and if I am right it should turn around this coming week as the muscle starts to increase the metabolism. At least hubby lost- and it is always nice when one of us is in a disgustingly chipper mood because of the scale.

Cold here today, and it was cold last night as well. I went to sleep and had strange dreams about making quilts for Somalia ( would they need them ?) and going to a pot luck where a woman baked a cake that looked like a beehive hair style and discovering that the cake included actual human hair. Gross, but I winder what my brain was trying to tell me in that dream. I don't eat cake, crave cake, think about hair or any such thing. Bizzare !

Plans for today's eats are oatmeal for breakfast, minestrone soup and salad for lunch and leftover ham baked with cauliflower and cheese. Plans are for shopping, chopping and more applique work on the quilt, another session of rowing and pilates. Have a good one !

Your food sounds great and the dreams sound like some I would have. Last night I woke up dreaming that I was in the Jurassic Park movie! I haven't seen that movie in ages.

I hope you have a great weekend. We are trying to get the house in order for school on Monday.
