Weigh in Wednesday! {linky}

Good Morning! it's Weigh in Wednesday!I have to be honest I haven't weighed my self in about a month now until last night and I was surprised that it was the same, not that I thought I had gained but I haven't been 'as strict' as I was. Anyhow here is my tip today... SHOES!!!! they make such a difference in your workouts and have such an impact on you body. I bought a pair of ASICS on Jan.1st 2013 and didn't workout much in the beginning of the year {lack of effort on my part} but when I started running and then doing insanity they started to fall apart and fast. My friend told me to contact ASCIS and see about a warranty... I did and now I am sending them in to get a new pair {I'll update you when I get them!} so last night I had to go get some new ones for the time that I wouldn't have them... these are the ones I got! I tried them last night and I told my husband that I swear I'm jumping higher! {insanity}
What kind of shoes do you wear?

Weigh in Wednesday {linky}

Good morning friends! It's Weigh In Wednesday again! I skipped last week because I know everyone was getting ready for thanksgiving and WAS NOT thinking about weight {I wasn't} or healthy options although I did workout! Anyhow, on to this week... What are y'all doing to stay healthy or "on track" I have been following Shaun T {insanity trainer} and he has a holiday challenge going on that I wanted to share, it's an 'extra' minute of workout... it's for anyone!!!!

So here it is, Day:3 {he's doing it everyday in Dec.}

and because I'm such a food lover.... Monica over at The Yummy Life healthified a Texas sheet cake... OMG it looks SO yummy!

Check it out here She even has a way to print it out!

  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup Greek yogurt (low fat or full fat)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour (or 1 cup regular whole wheat flour plus 1 cup white flour)
  • 1-1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 6 tablespoons milk (whole or 2%)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
1. Add the butter, water, and cocoa to a medium bowl and microwave until it boils, approx. 2 to 2-1/2 minutes. Whisk until smooth and set aside to cool.
2. In another medium bowl, whisk the eggs; then add the yogurt and applesauce and whisk until combined. Set aside.
3. In a separate large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Add the warm chocolate mixture; stir to combine completely. Add the yogurt mixture; stir again until completely combined.
4. Pour batter into one ungreased 13x18 baking sheet (jelly roll pan) or two 13x9 baking sheets.
5. Bake for 15-20 minutes until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
6. Frost right away while cake is still hot. Pour on frosting and gently spread to edges with a spatula.
7. Let frosted cake cool completely, cover, and store in refrigerator.

FROSTING (make this while cake bakes):
Melt butter in medium bowl in microwave (30-40 seconds). Whisk cocoa into melted butter until smooth. Whisk in milk and vanilla until well combined, and then whisk in powdered sugar until smooth. Stir in chopped nuts, if desired. Note: If frosting thickens too much to pour over cake, zap for 20-30 seconds in microwave to warm and thin it. Stir and frost cake.

Keep cake refrigerated. Frosted cake is freezable; thaw uncovered for 1 hour before serving.
