Here's a Tip....

So I wasn't planning on blogging today BUT I just can't help myself! I had a great start to my morning, scale went down..BOOM...ANNNDDD I am with the greatest Man I have ever known. Lord that man loves me...who else would offer their own money to help encourage their partner. Yeah ladies I may not have a ring..but he is ALLLL MINE!!! :) So here's my tip...I was on pinterest..shocking I know...and I came across a "tip jar" for workouts...and thought you know what I am definitely gung ho about making myself healthier and STRONGER, but I struggle with the work outs...who doesn't in the beginning. The weather isn't cooperating for me to run outside..enter super "graceful" me....so I am forced to the gym..and lets face it...when you are the "fat" girl..you KNOW what everyone is thinking at the gym- "Lord I can't wait for these fat people to get over their...gulp..."resolution"..still hate that word by the way. So what is my tip you ask? Well I decided to try this "tip jar" idea and for every workout I complete I give myself 1 dollar. So I of course didn't have cash this morning..does anyone still carry cash? So I put a yellow sticky note in the jar- for those that know me you know that that was painful as I LOVEEEE my sticky notes :) As I am making my yummy Mexican breakfast pizza J asks me "what the heck is this?" I turn and say oh that's my "tip jar", I tell him what it is and that man says to me...I'll do you one better, I'll match you dollar for dollar. I looked at him and wanted to cry. How did I ever get so lucky? Of course he knows me and immediately says "no I don't think you are fat, I want to help you". Again I say Lord I love that man, how lucky can one girl be? Well today among other days, I am definitely the luckiest! Ever hear of Ben Folds? NO?!?! Well you should check him out and find the song "The Luckiest" its gorgeous and totally how I feel today! :) So anyway since I am here I might as well share with you the yummy "skinny" Doritos casserole I made last night that was so delicious Mr. J went back for seconds- ladies who have picky children and picky husbands- this is hands down a keeper. I of course got it from Mama Laughlin's blog- if you have not checked her out..you must..she is hilarious and a quite inspiring woman! So here goes my take on this delicious Doritos's bake-I promise I will get better about pictures in the future! :)

Skinny Dorrito Bake

1 can of Red Fat Crescent Rolls
1 can of Rotel
1 can of Green Chili's
1 cup of black beans
1 lb of lean burger
taco seasoning
1 cup reduced fat cheese
6 oz of Fat Free Greek Yogurt
1/2 bag of baked Doritos- Nacho Cheese

Preheat oven to 350
Brown the burger, drain off as much grease as possible
pour in your taco seasoning with the water, let simmer
then add in your black beans, green chili's, and the can of Rotel
Let whole pan simmer for about 10 minutes
Press your crescent into a 9x13 greased dish ( I use Coconut Oil Spray)
Pour your meat mixture over the crescent rolls
Top with your Greek yogurt and smear it across the dish
Sprinkle your cheese on top followed by crushed Doritos
Bake for about 1 hour or until everything is bubbling
Let sit for 15-20 minutes then serve
Serving size is 1/8th of the pan and comes in at 365 calories- and its a huge piece!
