The race is on...

So today start the first day of the race to get healthy and to win some money for China. In my outlook every penny matters. Therefore I made a little bet with my mother. The bet you may ask... well it is who can lose the largest percentage of weight by May 1st. If I win I get $500 to spend on my trip to China. If I lose I can't go to Haiti this year. So in order to earn money for China and also be able to go to Haiti I must fight now and get rid of this unwanted weight. I take on the challenge with hopeful outlooks but I know it will be quite hard. I mean how can someone restrict the temptation of cheese cake as well as 12 boxes of girl scout cookies in your house?? Yes I know very tempting. In order to complete this task I will need your help and encouragement along the way. I will post once a week about the progress and my weekly goals.

Week Goals
 - Run a total of 12 miles
 - Take daily Vitamins
 - Drink 8 glasses of water a day

Snow Days and French Crepes

This last week we were able to have two days off because of a snow/ice storm. It was nice to hang out and get some work around the house done. When I have nothing to do in the mornings I love to cook breakfast. This week I tried something new. Homemade crepes! They were really good. Try them yourself....

1 1/2 cup flour
1 egg
2 cups milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil

Mix everything in a bowl. Then using a med/low heat skillet pour 1/4 cup batter into the pan. Making it paper thin.Once it is done fill it with what ever you would like. I mixed berries and cream cheese together to fill mine.

Happy Cooking...
