Recipe for Success and Pizza

My recipe for a successful week includes lots of sleep, lots of water, lots of healthy food and lots of exercise.

For lunch this week, I am having a chef salad with raspberry vinaigrette dressing. Healthy food, check!




Last night, I went to bed at 8 p.m. and slept until 6 p.m. Lots of sleep, check!

This morning, I did 30 minutes of Just Dance 3 for the Wii. I burned almost 300 calories just from dancing. What a fun workout. Exercise, check!

And today, I'm drinking so much water. I'm basically floating over here. Lots of water, check!

My recipe for success is in full gear! My recipe for a killer pizza is below.




My husband and I tried a new kind of pizza recipe last night. We forgot to add an ingredient (bacon, who forgets to add bacon?) but it turned out great, anyway!




It involved gouda cheese, grapes, onions and alfredo sauce. If you're like me, then you may be turning your nose up to those ingredients combined like that. But trust me, they go together like peanut butter and jelly. It's a rich flavor that makes you crave that next piece!
