2 more weeks!

Thursday, April 17, 2008

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

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.

Here's the nutrition stats: (for 2 cookies)

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.
