Hi, my name is Kelly and I’m addicted to Lifetime

Last night I stayed up till 2 am just to watch The Pregnancy Pact on Lifetime. I was out celebrating my friend Alexis’s birthday so I missed the original airing at 9, oh but you bet your ass I made sure I was home to see it replay at midnight. I drove to the bar last night so I wasn’t drinking, and was very much looking forward to making a giant vodka and club to drink during the movie. So you can imagine my disappointment when I realized we were out of club soda, gasp no not that anything but that! Thankfully we had tonic and cranberry juice, so I improvised and made a carbonated cosmo. Curled up in my bed, drink in hand, and wearing flannel pajama pants, I settled in for the next two hours, it was a very delightful end to my Saturday night. Leading up to this Lifetime movie premiere event, they were playing all of their classic movies about pregnancy, Mom at 15, 16 and Pregnant, Too Young to Be a Dad, needless to say I was sucked in all day. At one point I sent the boyfriend a bbm saying something about pregnancy and babies, and this was his response, “Stop watching Lifetime.” Haha, he knows me so well. I wasn’t completely unproductive though, I finally unpacked from NYE and cleaned my entire room.

Apparently this post is going to start with the end of the weekend and move forward, or backward, which one is right? I don’t know, you know what I mean. Ok so, Saturday morning I woke up early to get to the gym and finalllly made a new running playlist. The one that was currently on my Ipod I made last year, so it was about time for an update. My lats and shoulders were soooo sore from yoga on Friday, (haven’t told you about that yet, there are pictures coming) but I had a six-mile run to get in. It went alright, my shoulders felt really tight and sore for most of the run, but I finished in a decent time. Six miles in 54.50, 6.62 miles altogether in 60 minutes. After working out the past six days in a row, I am taking full advantage of this rest day and sitting my ass on the couch. I really want to go do some shopping later, but I’m trying very hard to stay away from the mall. I’m still trying to decide what to get the boyfriend for Valentine’s Day/our six month anniversary. HELP!

Alright, Friday night is very picture heavy 1) because I was bored and 2) I am trying to keep my friend Megan’s attention. Apparently she is not entertained. I forced myself to get in the 30 minutes of yoga, I’m feeling it more every time so I think I am working harder/doing the moves more correctly. Please enjoy my 80s workout top.

Trying very hard to balance

Literally about to fall on my face

I do actually have a yoga mat, but it is currently MIA so I just roll up the carpet and make use of the crap underneath. What you can’t see in the pictures is Pumpkin sitting on the arm-chair to the right waiting to pounce on me every time I move. After working out I made myself a Kelly Special, which is a lot of 3 Olives and a splash of club soda, and made some dinner. Since I was home alone I used one of the recipes in my Hungry Girl cookbook, pizza!

a Kelly Special

The ingredients:
1 medium low-fat flour tortilla (about 110 cals with at least 6g fiber)
1 1/2 ounces ground-beef-style or sausage-style soy crumbles (I used a sliver of leftover meatloaf and some turkey pepperoni)
1/3 cup shredded fat-free mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup canned tomato sauce
2 teaspoons reduced fat Parmesan-style grated topping
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Other optional spices (I used onion powder, oregano, basil, and black pepper)

All the ingredients

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees, and place the tortilla in a baking pan sprayed lightly with nonstick spray and bake 5-6 minutes on each side.

All of the spices mixed in with the sauce

Combine all of the spices with the sauce in a bowl while the tortilla is baking. Remove the tortilla from the oven, and spread on the sauce. Then sprinkle on the cheese and add the rest of your toppings.

I had some red and green peppers already cut up in my fridge, so I threw those on as well. After all of the toppings are added, put the pizza back in the oven for about 5 minutes or until the cheese melts.

all ready to eat!

It was delicious! The tortilla was crispy and made for a perfect thin crust. I will definitely be making this again… in fact I could go for some pizza right now.

This is a picture of it half eaten, but you can see the crust and peppers more clearly. According to the cookbook, 1 pizza has 264 calories, 4.5g of fat, 1.5g of fiber, and 27g of protein. I’m sure those numbers vary a little depending on your exact ingredients.

yummy!

I hope everyone else had a wonderful weekend. Time to watch some football! Oooh I need to run across the street and get a bottle of wine before the booze store closes at 5!
