12 weeks and more pizza

12 weeks from today will be my first real 5K!   Timed and everything.   I am going to work towards being able to run the whole thing.  While I did do The Color Run last October, I pretty much walked it, have now idea how long it took, and from everything I’ve read it might not have even really been 5K.  I am excited!

I posted my favorite pizza the other day, using the Flatout flatbreads.  I absolutely love them and could eat a pizza every night if it was just me.  I decided to try a low carb tortilla in place of it though because the tortilla is less calories with more fiber and more protein.  So last night I made pizza with a flatbread for the husband and a tortilla for me.

I definitely prefer the taste of the pizza done on the flatbread than on the tortilla but nutritionally the tortilla wins.  The only difference between the two was the base:

flatbread:  345 calories, 17 grams protein, 5 grams fiber

tortilla:  285 calories, 20 grams protein, 14 grams fiber

Either way, it’s pizza so it’s a win to me!

    I was too embarrassed to do the colour run in Cape Town this year… I couldn’t face putting my fat behind into a shorts… but you just wait – the next one I’m going to do for sure! Share your pics when you do please because I just love the colourful explosion that accompanies these runs… (ps: I’m going to have to walk it very fast because I’m not allowed to run yet because of the impact on the pegs in my feet… but give it time – I’m getting there)
