Yep. Not quite starting yet–but getting there!

Exercise: Traditionally, I start w/ food… but… well… I look like a better TBTer in terms of exercise today…

  • 1hr spin class
  • 50 push-ups
  • 60 crunches

Food:

  • Sesame bagel w/ honey almond butter, orange juice, coffee w/ half & half, four turkey sausage links
  • Naked Berry Blast blended w/ Pom and Greek Yogurt, 1% cottage cheese
  • can of three bean salad…
  • leafy greens w/ firm tofu cube, balsamic vinegar, orange-honey-greek yogurt dressing, and some hummus.
  • 2 clementines
  • Bacon Cheddar Cheese Ball, triscuits, cherry vanilla ice cream w/ chocolate syrup
  • 2 extra dirty martinis with olives.

Yeah, so I’m not quite TBTing yet, but I’m a step closer than yesterday.  I did my 50 pushups and situps.  I did not walk the dog, but b/c of Spin Class I got 10,000+ steps.  (I feel like spinning for steps is a bit of a cheat, though…)

I’m a little irritated about spinning.  Kim had a sub today, and while he’s a great teacher with great music…  he’s a chauvinist dickhole.  Once, I attended his Wednesday 5:45am class, that wasn’t on the schedule, I had just heard about it.  He told me “you can come back.”  As if you needed an invite to attend.  Then today I did well.  Or so I thought.  At the end, he ignored four females and invited a roid-ridden meathead in a cycling unitard to an unscheduled 10am Saturday class.  (Yes, I was jealous… of the unitard!)  Anyway.  Grr.

So I ate alright until I got home from basketball, when I downed some bacon cheddar cheese ball, ice cream, and dirty martinis.  Gotta get my fill of the dirties now so that I can miss them for three months.  *sigh.*  Speaking of–hit Costco today and did *not* get the giant jar of green olives.  Go me.

Oh–btw–Rowdy–my digestive system didn’t appreciate all the fiber today either.  I had mad farts sitting on the bench running the basketball scoreboard.  Fortunately there weren’t 7 other people on the bench w/ me… oh wait.  There were…

Bacon Cheddar Cheese Ball

I had intended to make my favorite holiday Caraway Cheese Ball, but alas!  I have no Caraway Seeds.  So, since we had bacon and eggs for breakfast…I decided to make a Bacon Cheddar Cheese Ball.

IMG_0425

Ingredients:

  • 8oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 lb shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 package bacon, fried crispily, and crushed (or bacon bits)
  • 2 tbl. Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tbl. Red Wine Vinegar

Beat cream cheese until smooth.  Mix in dijon and red wine vinegar.  Add bacon and cheddar.  Mix thoroughly.  Roll into ball.  Refrigerate 4hrs. (or until firm), serve with triscuits.

* Feel free to roll ball in crushed nuts.  Cheese balls traditionally have a coating, I left one off since it would ruin the baconyness.  😀
