Now to the food...
On Monday I was craving meatloaf but not just the traditional kind, I wanted to spice things up a little. This is what I came up with.
What you will need
ground turkey
1 can of whole kernel no salt added corn
low sodium black beans (drained)
veggie quinoa
1 1/2 limes
taco seasoning
reduced fat cheddar cheese
1 egg (not pictured)
Preheat oven 375'
Start by cooking your ground turkey and quinoa.
Then mix all ingredients in large mixing bowl.

Pour mixture into cooking dish and shape like you would normally shape a meatloaf.
Then squeeze a 1/2 lime over entire meatloaf and then top meatloaf with the other lime.

Put in oven and let cook for about 25 minutes.
Then top with low fat cheddar cheese and jalapenos.
Let cook until cheese is fully melted and ends are golden.

To make sure it is fully cooked put knife in the middle.
Then enjoy your yummy Skinny Southwestern Meatloaf.

I then treated myself to a dessert.
It consisted of fat free whipped cream and 1 spoonful of my pumpkin pecan butter.

Words can't express how delicious this was.

Week 12 Workout 2
I am getting closer and closer to the day of my first 5k and getting super excited. I am now up to running 2.50 miles. Now that might not seem like much but  when I first started working out I couldn't even run for 3 minutes not even exaggerating. But after pushing myself harder than I have ever pushed myself it is getting easier ever day. (proud moment for myself)

This workout was defiantly a sweaty one and I have decided I reallllly hate doing forward lunges. Most people that I talk to hate burpees or something a little tougher than lunges but me not being the most graceful person in the world I just look like a spastic chicken doing them. No lie I saw someone giggling at me this morning. This is when it is good that I can laugh at myself. ha
During my workout I burned 514 calories in 1:18 mins.
