Sometimes I get so sleepy, I fall asleep before I get to recap my day. I should probably work on that.
Lucky for you, that means you get a DOUBLE recap! Yesterday AND today!
Yesterday I had my final muffie! mmm soo good. Followed by a soy yogurt and granola.
Clearly I need to clean the table. woops. It attracts shmutz, I swear.
I was feeling off and on all day, but was able to eat.
Lunch was a good ol’ fashioned PB&J
Followed by the remnants of a peach. I was able to salvage the good parts!
Snack was a luna bar.
I spent the day doing work, but I was able to relax when the boyf was grillin! I don’t know how we survived without a grill, I’m tellin ya. My newest “grillin” playlist on my ipod has been well recieved. What is better?
Oh and guess what? Some might say that last night was monumentous. Why you ask? Oh I’ll tell you why.
Red Meat. Yes, that’s right; I ate steak tips! Who am I?
It was a pretty big deal. I made sure that the meat was locally raised and as pure as I could find – no antibiotics, grass fed, etc.
So, I felt as good as I could about eating red meat.
On to the taste…
I have to say, I enjoyed it. I definitely could only eat red meat that’s cooked on the grill. It just has such a good flavor. Boyf did a good job.
I enjoyed it and ate 3 pieces.
Was I in heaven and wondering why I haven’t eaten steak in so long?
Did I feel sick to my stomach afterwards?
Will I be scarfing down more red meat in the near future?
But I’m glad I did. I feel like it was worth it to try it, and now I know that I really don’t think I’ll be missing too much without it. I’m not saying I’m going completely vegan right now, but I am going to continue to be as aware of possible of what I put into my body, and only eat products that I feel comfortable with and that make me feel good.
The steak was served with grilled fresh and local zucchini and summer squash.
I accidentally started eating it before I took a pic! woops. It was so good I couldn’t resist. Figured this was better than nothing! (sorry if gross.)
Dessert was some unpictured chocolate chips, per usual. ;)
Today was back to the grind with work and school…my last full week until the school year starts!
I realized I didn’t take a picture of anything I ate during the day today. It’s hard with work - I can’t take pictures there, and I didn’t have a chance beforehand. Oh well. It was nothing too spectacular.
Breakfast was a bowl of Cascadian Farms for Kids’ version of cinnamon toast crunch, with almond milk. Snack was a banana. Lunch was PB&J and a bag of pretzels. Snacks were a luna bar and 2 lil’ nectarines.
Dinner. Dinner was scrumptious. I felt ravenous. I don’t know what’s wrong with me lately. I may or may not have been heard mumbling “this is a bomb salad” as I shoved forkfuls into my mouth. Again, who am I? The boyf was slightly confused by this phrase. I don’t blame him.
The “bomb” salad consisted of local Boston lettuce, local tomato, olives, avocado, local zucchini and summer squash, and warm (okay, hot. I couldn’t wait) quinoa. I was literally shoveling it into my mouth. Delish.
Now I’m snackin’ on some chocolate chippies! Shocker, I know. I’m literally an addict. It’s scary.
The boyf and I are relaxing on the couch watching “Everybody Hates Chris” on nick at nite! I know what you’re thinking: what happened to Mr. Ed and Mary Tyler Moore?
I feel ya, I do. I’m not sure when nick at nite became well, not old. But after watching nick, teen nick, and nick at nite around the clock when my lil bro stayed the night last week, the boyf and I became instant fans of Everybody Hates Chris.
We might be the only people to watch this show? Not really sure.
Ok, I’m off! Have a great night :)
