I wonder if I change my deposition would you choose to be by my side? It’s been so long since you chose me. Thinking back I don’t think you ever have. I longed for you to and I think for a second I imagined you did. My imagination ran away from me and formed a picture that I longed to see.
This world is cold and half the people that you believe care about you, really have malicious intentions. We live in a world that takes the word reality off of the map. We strive for instant gratification and praise the most peculiar behavior.￼ Continue reading “A Fool’s Game”
Yes, I know It’s Saturday and you want a rest day. But this is the day that counts the most. I know that you had a full week of work and hopefully you did some type of workout every day. However, every positive action that you took towards becoming a better you can and will be undone by the choices you make today.
So many of us choose to make Saturday our day to have a cheat meal, which is totally okay if you stick to only one meal. Don’t turn that cheat meal into a cheat day. often times we will start the day off with an unhealthy option and from that moment on our body and mind will crave more sugar. So let’s start off right.
For instance, when you wake up have a healthy breakfast and then WORKOUT. When you return home to have a protein shake make this the time to throw a few greens in the blender so that you are getting your daily vitamin intake. Lastly, don’t forget to continue to DRINK WATER. I tend to stick with drink half of my body weight and if I am working out in the warm weather then I will increase my consumption.
Now here we are at dinner and you are probably ready to consume some major calories. But guess what? I guarantee that due to the wise choices that you made previously you will not eat as much as you wanted to. The body is a funny machine. Mentally you are wanting everything that you gave up during the week but your body isn’t craving or missing the calories. So listen to your body and not that hungry mind.
Make this day count and continue to make healthy choices!
Below you will find links for healthy meal options.

Maybe it’s just my metabolism but I think I could gain 5 pounds just by sniffing this mac and cheese. I’m used to making my mac and cheese with cauliflower (https://belladonnasflashlight.blog/2018/06/22/cauliflower-mac-and-cheese/ ) but this time I went all out and made sure I had all the ingredients that would make my greedy husband and son smile.
I didn’t hold back on the calories with this goody and sometimes you shouldn’t but just be mindful of your servings. Portion control is everything and a little exercise before consumption is highly recommended.
Oven on 375°
10 to 12 servings
- 1 Box of pasta
- 3 eggs
- 3 cups of milk
- 3 tbs butter
- 2 cloves of garlic or 1tbs of garlic powder
- 1 cup mild cheddar
- 1 cup sharp cheddar
- 1 cup mozzarella
- 1 cup parmesan cheese
Cook your pasta as suggested on the back of the packaging. Drain and shake parmesan cheese and melted butter on top and set aside.
In a large bowl add your eggs, milk garlic powder pepper and salt. Stir until everything is mixed thoroughly. Set aside.
Sprinkle your cheese all on top of your pasta in a large nonstick pan. Then pour your milk mixture on top. Using a wooden spoon push down on the mixture to make sure your milk is evenly distributed on your dish. Place in oven for 35 to 40 minutes. Let cool for 5 to 10 minutes and serve warm.
