Spinning and spinach, steak, feta pizza.

Tonight I decided to head to spinning class after work.  I try to do spinning once a week, either Monday or Wednesday.  I decided on Monday this week because I am considering trying a Zumba class on Wednesday.  I'm a little nervous about it because I am the most uncoordinated person on the planet.  I definately try to avoid anything "dance-y".

Today's pre-workout snack was a South Beach cereal bar.  The dark chocolate berry is my favorite flavor of these.  I'm not fond of the sketchy ingredients but I do like the high protein count and the low calories.

For dinner I made my steak, spinach, and feta pizza.  It is one of my favorite meals.  To start I browned some steak on the stove and then sauteed my mushrooms and spinach.  After I prepped the toppings I put them in the fridge while I went to spinning class.  On gym nights I start prepping dinner right after work.  That way when I get home and I'm starving dinner is almost done and I won't be tempted to get take-out.   After spinning I made a quick and healthy pizza crust. Seriously it was almost as easy as buying a pre-made crust! 
You take 1 envelope of rapid rise yeast and mix it with one cup of lukewarm water.  Add 2 TB. of olive oil, 1 TB. of honey, and 2 1/2 cups of flour.I used 1/2 whole wheat and 1/2 white.  Mix with your hands.  Cover and let sit for 10 min. Then pat it out in your pan!  Add the toppings of your choice and bake for 12 minutes at 450 degrees.  Other than the steak, spinach, and mushrooms I added mozzarella and feta cheeses.  How easy is that?  The results are fabulous too!
