Pizza toppings are a staple of people everywhere who enjoy the cheesy goodness of the pizza without the bread. Why not use the oopsie roll to take your lunch to the next level?
On a plate, I put together 12 slices of pepperoni, 1 ounce of medium cheddar, a sliced mushroom, 2 sliced green olives, and a pinch (1/8 tsp) Parmesan, and I microwaved everything for 30 seconds (until everything was a delicious, melted mess).
Then I transferred everything to an oopsie roll.
On top of that I placed fresh, sliced green pepper (less than 1/4 cup).
It was pretty darned good.
I am placing the carb count at >3 (2 for the oopsies and 1 for the cheese).
(For anyone wanting to know my menu, this is what I had for breakfast about 30 minutes ago.)
Positive Thinking. Setting New Goals
I am mentally re-inducting today since I lost the first 50 pounds to my goal (I promised my concerned kids on New Year’s Eve that I would lose 150 pounds for them this year).
For me, things get stale after awhile, and it’s easy to get sloppy. To remain fully in the game, I made the conscious effort to pretend I never lost the first 50, and am imagining that I’m starting from scratch. Suddenly all of the drive, excitement and dedication came back.
Really, it’s boring for me to say, “Now I need to lose another 50 pounds.”
It’s more exciting to say, “Day one! Here we go!” and see where I end up in another 10 weeks or so.
I feel re-invigorated, have been more excited about exercise, and am looking forward to reaching 50 pounds lost– even if it’s just the next 50.
Thinking in terms of losing 150 pounds this year is a huge goal. Thinking in terms of smaller goals, acting as each is its own part is much more exciting and do-able.
How do you keep yourself motivated?
