Roll With It- Life and a No Grain Pizza Muffin

 

Workouts:

Wednesday: Taught a spin class complete with a little disco ball mood lighting

Ran 10 miles on the treadmill in my disco spin pants.

Definitely not one of my brightest decisions. Let’s just say I can now say “I charded” and “I chaffed”. Lovely.

 

Thursday:

A morning 5 miler on the treadmill.

Taught a Y50X class and a strength training class at night.

 

So I feel like we’ve just kind of been “rolling” with life over here the past few days. I feel like I need a little break, but I don’t see one anywhere in the near future, so we’re just getting by day by day and doing what we can.

Here’s just some random things worth noting.

It hailed the other morning.

That does not happen often here. It was pretty cool.

 

I posted that I was making a Trader Joe’s shopping list on Facebook the other day and asked what I needed to buy. Holy smokes there are a ton of things there that I haven’t tried yet that people love. Not only did I spend too much money (and cause a scene with twin toddlers pushing baby carts), but now I want to go back and get everything everyone suggested.

I am a little upset that they didn’t have that new ghost pepper grinder I’ve been seeing. Of course I asked and they said they won’t get it again until November. Say what? Did anyone get their hands on one of those?

 

I have gotten a little behind on laundry. It might have something to do with my new schedule of trying to go to bed early and then get up early to get things done. It’s not working out so well, as Judah is now getting up at 5:15 with me. The other day he politely pointed to the kitchen and said “Mommy, go make Daddy some coffee.”

What have I done? That’s not cool.

Anyway, the clean clothes we had available yesterday were limited. I tried to play it off and tell people I let the boys pick out their outfits. Good one, huh?

And yeah, that’s exactly the kind of day we had yesterday. They gave me a run for my money.

It caught up with them though. They said they weren’t going to nap. I told them to sit quietly and read a book while I did a little laundry. This is what happened.

Ha ha.

 

So last night I taught a couple classes at the gym. A skirt was not the best choice, but hey, I went with it.

Then I put on my really fancy outfit after my classes had cleared out.

Nice. You’d think I’d have the good sense to drive straight home and not go in public wearing that.

I didn’t.

IMG_0180

Yeah, I stopped at the mall of all places to return some random lip liner I bought months ago and never used. I fit right in.

I also tried to return some things at Target, but they only took a couple of them back and told me I had reached my limit for the year returning things without a receipt.

What? Isn’t it only February? Lesson learned, save all Target receipts.

 

Oh, I almost forgot. SPANX are on sale on Zulily right now. I did a little shopping yesterday.

So I have a little pizza muffin to share with you. A no grain microwavable pizza muffin.

IMG_7266

Doesn’t that look fantabulous?

I took the grain free garlicky microwave muffin and instead of making it a grain free microwave pizza crust, I made it into a pizza muffin (or pizza roll, or calzone, whatever you want to call it).

Brilliant. I know. All I did was add a little pizza sauce and a few sliced mushrooms in between the garlicky muffin layers before I microwaved it. I wasn’t sure if my bright idea would turn out, but hey, it did.

And hey, I think you might have to try it, so here you go.

 

 

 

It’s like a personal little grain free calzone.

It went really well with roasted kale salad and non dairy kale chips the other night for dinner.

Mmmmm hmmm.

 

My pictures are really not good today, sorry, but something’s gotta give these days.

Here’s a little Friday motivation to make it up to you in case you don’t “like” my STUFT Mama Facebook page and didn’t see it this morning.

Usually the things you REALLY want in life do not come easy. You’ve got to make some sacrifices, commit to your goals and make them happen.

I’m telling myself this right now as I kind of want to crawl back in bed. He he. Not going to happen.

 

Have a wonderful Friday!

 

Do you ever buy things from Zulily? They have some darn good deals on there.

Do you return things frequently to stores?

Do you prefer pizza or calzones?

    I just made a purchase for the first time on Zulily the other day…I can’t wait for the tops and pants to arrive…very good deals!! (I just hope they all fit and look good since they simply state no refunds/returns on the items)

    And yes, I return things as needed….I don’t like to keep stuff just to save myself a shopping trip. Go figure!!

    I love you and your great after workout outfit!! I love calzones and haven’t had one in years….I so need to give this recipe a try. Hope your weekend is great!

    Even when I have the receipt, I ALWAYS have trouble retuning things at Target.
    So now I only buy clothes there if I KNOW I won’t want to return them <— this is difficult because I'm such an indecisive person! I know you can relate ;)

    That muffin pizza sounds darn good right about now!! I’ll have to add it to my list for the weekend.

    I don’t have any kids but I love zulily!! They always have really awesome things for “moms” and cute gadgets. They even had discounted Toms the other day!

    I snagged one of the last Ghost Pepper Grinders at my TJ’s last week!! And I’m ashamed to say I haven’t even had time to open it yet. I’m hoping to change that this weekend. Happy Friday!

    Pizza never ever gets old to me…that and garbage bread are weekly staples at our house!
    I hope you get to do a little relaxing this weekend, girl!!

    I am just sitting here jealous of the disco ball in the spin room. I think they should put those in every room for spin classes! For real. Love it.

    Marcia says:

    I will spin all day if there’s a disco ball involved. Did somebody say calzone? Happy weekend!

  9. 9

    Dang, I had no clue Target had a max return with no receipt policy, bummer! I usually keep stuff I buy, I’m bad like that, it “rots” in my closet with the tags on :( I love the disco ball in your spin class, how fun! Happy Friday!

    so skirts for fitness are bad??!! I wear them all the time with capri leggings for teaching or working out. lululemon makes some cuties! sometimes you just need to feel girly to get through a good sweat fest :) oh & here in Alaska it is standard to put snowpants on after a workout with your skirt hanging out, toss on some tall Uggs (usually with ice cleats- those are classy!) and a huge winter hat to go to the store….
    can’t wait to try the new calzone this weekend! I bet it will be fabulous with caribou sausage

    Target is always so difficult with returns! I also run errands after the gym on a regular basis. Today I went to the post office and grocery store (just needed eggs) still sweaty from the gym!

    Thank you I was looking for something different for dinner tonight.

  15. 15

    When it comes to anything Italian I pretty much eat it all and lots of it! Pizza; calzones; strombolis; pasta; bring it….Happy Friday!

    Just the title of this post has me craving pizza! Chaffing is the worst! I ran 6 miles in shorts on the treadmill the other day and chaffed really bad! It normally doesn’t happen but sometimes it does. Do you have any tips? I feel like I’ve heard people mention creams or lotions that help prevent it but I thought you would know best!
