I hope everyone is having a super duper Wednesday.
My Wednesday started out early this morning! Zachary was wide awake at 6:45am, I was busy dreaming about running a marathon and he woke me up before I finished it…..I like to think I came in first LOL. When I went to his room to get him he was all cuddled up in his Cars comforter grinning from ear to ear. Nothing better than a happy toddler. After a very messy breakfast, he gets carried away with the spoon, we had to get all cleaned up and head out to a doctor’s appt for him. So no Fit World today, but it’s OK because I have Spin tomorrow with Lea……and it’s getting more intense each class. Shout out to my Spin friend CAR-Ohhh-LINE hope to see you there!
Let’s move on to you guys now! How’s the Challenge going? I’m so proud of all of you sticking to your calories and making sure you get your calorie burn daily. I’m gonna put this question out there again……how many of you eat back the calories you burn? Do you eat all of them back? Just half? Or none at all…..I love to hear different opinions and views so please share. And while you’re sharing, what has become your go to snack/meal during the Challenge? I have a new fave go to sweet treat that I concocted last night. Strawberry Ice Box Cheesecake! OH YEA! Recipe is below and some delish food porn!
Girl Gone Healthy Strawberry Ice Box Cheesecake:
-1 graham cracker crust
-1 8 oz container cream cheese softened ( I used weight watchers whipped cream cheese)
-1 12 oz tub Fat Free Cool Whip
-1 16 oz carton fresh strawberries washed and sliced in different sizes ( I like texture and the different sizes make it appealing to the eye)
In large mixing bowl combine cream cheese and cool whip, using electric mixer blend until both are well folded and smooth. Once mixture is smooth, add in half of the sliced strawberries and continue to mix. Next, spoon strawberry mixture into graham cracker crust spreading through out, place remaining strawberry slices on top for garnish. Allow cheesecake to set in freezer for about and hour to hour and half. Serve cold and enjoy. (doesn’t need to be stored in freezer, fridge is fine)
