Jamie Eason's meatloaf muffins

Oh hello there. Thought I forgot you? Absolutely not, I've just been crazy busy and haven't had a chance to update the ole' bloggy. I'm glad to be back because I have some good stuff to share.

I had another fantastic weekend of staying on the diet track. I didn't even go out Saturday night! If you know me, that's saying a lot. Since I didn't spend money at the bar, I bought myself a pretty spring dress. Now I just need some place (preferably warm and beachy) to wear it!
I watched Ella Monday afternoon because I had the day off (USA USA) and Jamie and Tiff didn't. We went to the library and played on the chairs. Yup, it doesn't take much when you're 15 months!

I repeated a few workouts over the past few days but yesterday afternoon I saw this "speed it up" interval workout on Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life and tried it out last night.

It was a hum-dinger for sure! I had to take two 30-second breaks but I got through it like a boss. It made me sweat like a beast too so if you try it, make sure you have some sort of towel; that sweat stings when it's in your eyeballs!

I had some ground turkey to use (and a day off! Did I mention that already?) so I made these clean eating meatloaf muffins on Monday and have been eating them all week.

I only had 1 lb. ground turkey so I halved the recipe. The muffins are quite spicy which I love! If you aren't a spicy person, I would use less chipotle pepper spice. I added some chopped red pepper too since I had it around. Definitely a winner for me!

So glad it's already Wednesday! Peace out lovers!
