I only have two weeks left of school! Yippee! Unfortunately, I have finals to deal with. :( I have to take a couple of days off before I get started in finals mode, I just finished taking 4 tests!
So, yesterday, I spent the day with my boyfriend. I ate wayyyy too much. First we went to an Indian buffet that we both love. I splurged and had like 2 plates and dessert! Its so good though. We went on a walk afterwards to try and help. Then for dinner, we went with his sister and her boyfriend to On the Border, which is a Mexican place. I ordered off their light menu, but ate lots of the chips. Oh well-- it was a free day!
I did gain a bit, but I'm not sure how much of that was water weight. Actually though, I was 4 pounds under the range I like to stick in (I like to stay between 125 and 130, and before all the eating, I was 121). Today i was at 123.5, so eh, oh well. I'm still under! Haha.
I did some cooking today. I made cookies for a silent auction, and the leftovers are going to my friend. These are not really diet friendly, and I didn't even try one! I got the recipe from kraftfoods.com.
1 pkg. (2-layer size) devil's food cake mix 4 oz. (1/2 of 8-oz. pkg.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese, softened 1/2 cup peanut butter 2 eggs
PREHEAT oven to 375ºF. Place ingredients in large bowl. Beat with electric mixer on low speed 1 min., then beat on medium speed 1 min. or until mixture pulls away from side of bowl and forms soft dough.
SHAPE into 44 (1-inch) balls. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets. Flatten each ball, in criss-cross pattern, with tines of fork dipped in sugar.
BAKE 7 to 8 min. or just until edges of cookies are set. (Do not overbake.) Cool on baking sheet 2 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.

For lunch, I made salsa chicken.
12 oz chicken breast
5 tablespoons salsa
0.25 cup shredded cheese
Preheat oven to 375. Put each chicken part on a piece on tinfoil, and spoon a tablespoon of salsa on top. Close the tinfoil, and bake for 20 minutes. Add cheese to each part, bake until cheese is done.

I'm not sure what to do for supper. It's been kind of a hectic day, I might just do something easy.
