Not Pretty, But Tasty!

So last night I just kind of threw something together. I started out with something in mind and then by the time I finished it was something completely different. I will warn you it isn't a very pretty dish but it is tasty.
What you will need
ground turkey
tomato sauce
fat free cottage cheese
reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese
2 eggs
seasonings (oregano, Italian, tuscan rosemary, parsley)

Preheat oven at 350'
Then start by cooking your ground turkey. Then add your tomato sauce and seasonings.
Once sauce is cooked layer your cabbage on the bottom of your cooking dish then
add a layer of sauce,

your cheeses,

then repeat. (but don't top with reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese)

I then let cook for about 20 minutes and realized that is was very soupy.
So I stirred in 2 eggs.

I told you it wasn't very pretty.

I then let cook for about an hour and then added the cheese to the top.
Then let cook until cheese was fully melted.
Then let cool and enjoy!

I know that a couple of weeks ago I had mentioned that I was going to go Paleo but I quickly realized that it wasn't for me. For me to stay with my healthy lifestyle I have to have some grains and low fat diary. Like I have said many times you have to find the thing that works for you and Paleo just wasn't me.

It's All Becoming So Real

So as you all know I got engaged a couple of weeks ago. If you know me at all you know I am pretty OCD about planning so I started right way.
So on Saturday we headed home to meet up with my mom and best friend (one of my Maid of Honors) to look at venues.
 (the one day I really want my camera it is dead, these are from her phone)
Love these two more than words can express.

We went to many different places but finally we found the perfect spot!
The Yellow House

It is so peaceful and beyond perfect. More wedding details to come.
If you can't tell I am a little excited.
Nowwwww to a new goal of mine for LittleBlueDress.
Operation Fabulous Bride Body
My 6 month Wedding Fitness Plan
Like I had mentioned last week with everything going on lately going to the gym has been tough. But now that everything is falling together for the wedding I want to get my body into the best shape possible. My wedding is about 6 months away so I found this fitness plan to help me reach that goal. It starts off slow but I think with my lack of workouts lately this will help me not get burnt out. So I hope you all will follow my new goals over the next 6 months.
Do 20 minutes of aerobic activity (walking, jogging, running, elliptical) at least 3 times this week.
Note: This month, you should mainly be focused on just getting active and engaged in the program. A good way to get motivated is to start a workout diary. Write down the date, all the reasons why you need to work out, and what your goals are. Write down your weight (always weigh yourself in the morning for consistency), and use a measuring tape to record the size of your chest, waist, hips, thighs, and forearms, so you can monitor your progress. To stay motivated, keep notes all the way through.
So here I go, gotta get this bod ready for the biggest day of my life!!
