Body for Life update!

So we are one month in on our Challenge. We are feeling great. We are getting down our eating plans. It takes quite a bit of getting use to! Maybe more efforts into planning,and always having what you need to eat. NOT having what you don't need to eat. We overcame Halloween with flying colors. I had to hide our trick -or -treat candy so Nick wouldn't find it and mess up! Somehow it comes out on cheat days.
One of the awesome things I have made are "HEALTHY CALZONES"
We get wheat dough from the local bakery
Let it rise over night
Cook spicy turkey italian sausage slice it up
Turkey pepperoni
Nappa Vally Spicy Arribiata Sauce

Knead the dough into a circle about the size of a mini pizza
On half of it lay ham, sausage, and pepperoni
Put 2 spoonfuls of sauce on top
Bring the other side over
pinch ends together
Bake on 375 for 13 min
YUMMY! Nick loves them we had them for dinner twice last week!

Now for the gym! I am loving the workouts. Nick looks really good already. He is genetically derived from GLADIATORS! I swear, he has even missed one whole week of workouts due to work. I think his diet makes a big difference for him. I was a pretty healthy eater before, because of all my allergies to things.
He says he can tell a difference in me, and I can tell a lot on him. I think you are your own worst critic.
As for the scale. He has lost 11. HUGE
For me 4.5, but right on schedule for my goal if it continues. I am pleased! I know that I am getting more toned! My body fat percentage went down 1.5%.
I don't think I told you this but instead of 12 weeks we are doing 18! The transformation plan!
We will finish right around my birthday. It is actually Valentine's Day. I can hold out for my birthday cake till those after pictures!

I am ready to keep going. It is getting easier!
