Happy Weekend, my Fancy Followers!

Things are moving along. I am doing well drinking all my water - so much easier in summer, right? Went to Orange Theory yesterday and today, and plan to get out for good bicycle ride tomorrow.

I made another Cali'flour Foods cauliflower pizza crust tonight topped with veggies and homemade pizza sauce. The sauce base was lean ground beef in some diluted tomato paste with garlic, spices and olive oil. Tomato paste has no additives, no extra salt or sugar and ends up with a better macro profile than buying tomato sauce.

It seems I may not hit my loss goal for June though...shooting for 178 but stuck for the moment...

Note to self: 45/55, 30/35, 10/15

Short Range Goals:

* Movement down on the Idiot Boxes while retaining muscle by year end 2018
* Bodyfat % reading with trainer when I hit 175lb
* Drink at least 12-14 cups of fresh water daily - especially on gym days
* Continue HIIT mixed in with weight lifting four to five days a week
* Keep up the training notebook to achieve progressive overload

Long Range Goals: 2018/2019
*Bodyfat at 26% or less (Current 29.8%) by end 2018/early 2019
*Longer range body fat goal is 22% - which at my age is great!
*Maintain 160lbs staying under goal weight by end 2018/early 2019
*Increased strength, endurance and flexibility during workouts

It was yummy - and I did not add any cheese to it - just didn't need it!

So what do you think of the crusts? I’m not a big fan. I have about a half-dozen crusts in the freezer. I still prefer my zucchini crust .... better flavor and texture, a least from my perspective.

HCB as tomatoes come into season try using some fresh tomatoes. Glen I tried a cauliflower crust ages ago wasn't a big fan either. Might try it again sometime after my tomatoes start getting ripe. Haven't tried zucchini. I just use homemade traditional crust but then pizza is a rare thing @ my house and since I don't do LC it's not an issue.

@Glen - do you make the zucchini crusts yourself? If you buy them do they use wheat flour? I like the purchased ones OK. I am all about the toppings!
