Cream Cheese Enchilada Melt Down
-1lb of lean meat of your choice: I usually shred chicken, but these are ground beef
-1 package of cream cheese
-1 can of fat free re fried beans
-Enchilada sauce, you can get the cans-I make my own but top secret recipe
-1 bag of Mozzarella cheese
-Tortillas, the above are white corn tortillas
Easiest things ever: cook your meat, season as desired (I saute in coarsely diced onions and garlic and season with cumin, and pepper). Get a ginormous bowl, add meat, cream cheese, beans and your desired amount of enchilada sauce, I usually add about 1 1/2 cups. STIR!! Grab a glass 13x9 baking pan, spray with cooking spray. Grab a tortilla, fill with a spoonful of mix, roll up and REPEAT. Fill the pan, cover the rolls in more enchilada sauce and sprinkle with moz cheese. Baked for about 25-30 mins at 350 degrees, on until cheese is all melty and gooey.

- Heat oil in an ion pan over med-high, saute diced garlic in oil until fragrant
- Add pitted and halved cherries to hot oil, and cook until soft.
- Salt and pepper the chop, and toss in pan, allow the cherries to inundate the chop, but not sit under it.
- Brown on both sides, add brown sugar to the top of the chop and scoop up cherries and put on top as well. Turn the head to medium, and cover the pan so steam can not escape for two minutes.

Tears did breach on my drive home, and I may or may not have punched the steering wheel. I couldn't wait to get home to make pancakes, drenched in butter and syrup. Oh whatever, it's a cliche for a reason right? Feed your feelings and all that. You may be relieved to know, I came home and stood in my kitchen and resolved to eat oatmeal and strawberries. Not because it was the healthier option, but because I simply was too lazy to scratch up pancakes. Yup too lazy to throw a few ingredients in a bowl. This is an instance where lazatude works in my favor in the end.
After my low cholesterol meal, I got the spouse out of bed and by some grace of God convinced him to go running with us. Seriously...guys, is the world ending? Am I dying? Don't get me wrong, the guy is in shape-but naturally. He weighs a buck fifty, at five foot nine and is leaner than Jennie-O turkey. The last time he went out for a run was over a year ago when I first started. We went for a mile, and walked another-it was cold, at night and neither of us really enjoyed it. More than twelve months later, one of us has had an affair with running and the other turned a blind eye.
We retraced out treads home, just at twice the pace. Walking was a nice change of, well pace for me. The trail looked different, Goliath had more time to explore and I was able to note all the different people out training. It's fun for me to watch other runners, sometimes I write little stories about them in my head. Oh that guy is a three-time Boston Marathoner, he started running in high school and never gave it up. I like to watch their form, what gear they have and how fast they go. I get excited about it, and there's never any judgement passed I just love the sport.
Our little family was super hungry, and with a mile left to go it was decided that Logan deserved a hamburger for coming out with me. Even though it will probably be another year before I can drag him out, I was so thankful that when we got home I made him a giant burger. Giant burgers are not strangers in our home, in fact Big Burger Sunday is kind of notorious with us.
This was his burger, and this was mine:
Notice any difference? Shh...don't tell anyone but mine is half black beans. I don't discriminate foods, but I am a self-proclaimed hamburger connoisseur. When I first started Weight Watchers, it was the one food I was not willing to substitute or find a low calorie/low fat version. That is, until now. Until I gained three pounds. To make your own Big Black Bean Burger just combine 1/3 cup ground beef(or turkey), 1 tbsp egg white, 1/2 cup black bean and season with Worcestershire and black pepper.

Yesterday's work out class was incredibly difficult, incredibly. I THOUGHT it was a kickboxing class, but it was really a boot camp. A boot camp full of burpies, frog jumps, wall sits and other completely insane things. There will be a full review once the experiment is complete, but let's just say after an hour of that I was exhausted. BUT the weather was just too gorgeous to not run in, so I mapped an eight miler to work and intentionally didn't give myself enough time to pace less than an 8:30/mile. Fifty degrees means I get to run in a tank and shorts, thank yoooouuuu:
Raw pepper stuffed with black beans and rosemary rice couscous
