Happy September!! So happy that it’s finally September and means it almost fall!! I am so over this heat. I want sweaters, scarves, boots, and Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes. The beginning of the month also means new goals, and new things to try.
The goals for September:
1. Run 50 miles. As I am training for the rock n roll half, 50 is the goal for September, 75 for october and then maybe 100 in november.
2. A pushup for every day of the month. 2 today, 3 tomorrow, etc.
3. Plan out the week of meals on Sunday. I’ve gotten lazy and have been just going with it, time to shape up!!
Im excited to get started on tackling these goals. As this is labor day weekend, I have tomorrow off. Woot woot. That meant last night we could have a girls night out. The night was filled with laughs, fun, homemade pizza, and delicious drinks.
From Mario Batali
1/4 cup light red or white wine
3/4 cup warm water
1 1/2 ounces fresh yeast
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon plus 1 tablespoon olive oil
3 1/2 cups flour
Place wine, water and yeast in a large bowl and stir until dissolved. Add the honey, salt and 1 tablespoon olive oil and mix well to combine. Add 1 cup of the flour and mix with a wooden spoon until it becomes a loose batter. Add 2 more cups of the flour and stir for 2 to 3 minutes, incorporating as much flour as you can with the wooden spoon.
Bring the dough together by hand and turn out onto a floured board or marble surface. Knead for 6 to 8 minutes, until dough is smooth and firm. Place in a clean, lightly-oiled bowl, using remaining tablespoon of oil and cover with a towel. Let rise in the warmest part of the kitchen for 45 minutes.
For individual pizzas or calzones, cut the dough into 4 equal pieces and knead into rounds. For one large pizza, knead into 1 large round. For either, let rest for 15 minutes.

Needless to say this girl has been feeling off today. My body rebels when I drink by making me nauseous the entire next day. I don’t know how I did it in college.
Well off to bed, need to catch up on sleep!!
