The National Championship game wasn't the most exciting, so I went to bed
It was nearly 7pm before I had everything ready for dinner. We had an appointment at 6pm, so it interrupted my cooking a bit. While changing into my pajamas (so I didn't mess up my pretty Desigual skirt), I looked in the mirror and thought I was looking a bit thinner. That is a good sign!
We are implementing a new tradition here. Each week, we are going to try a new produce item. This week was rutabagas. Who knew they were so delicious?! I can't believe I've been missing out on them my entire life. I already have next week's food picked out. What could it be?
Breakfast: Small yam & carrot cake leftover from a couple nights ago. Half of a small apple dijon burger leftover from last night. Wilted spinach. One fried egg. Cinnamon applesauce (for some reason, it sounded good).
Lunch: Leftover apple dijon burger salad, similar to last night's meal. Lettuce, burger, sauteed onions, avocado, egg (cooked in my microwavable egg cooker).
Dinner: Roasted cabbage. Pulled pork with rutabaga hash browns. Fried egg on top. A few sips of Passionberry Bliss Kombucha to wash it all down.

Something I noticed with today's menu, I ate an egg at every meal. I don't usually do that. It just happened that way. Just an FYI - I buy Omega-3, free range eggs. Ideally, I'd buy them from a farm, but haven't found one nearby yet.
Anyways, it took me 45 minutes to eat my plate of food because I was still cooking more rutabaga hash browns for our lunch tomorrow... so I was running into the kitchen every few minutes to stir them. So glad to be finished cooking. Leftovers are put into containers. My husband washed the pots/pans and cleaned up the kitchen. He rocks!
I'm feeling pretty drained after two solid days of work (shouldn't tomorrow be Friday?!). I'm planning on running over my lunch hour tomorrow since it will be another mild day. It takes 7-8 minutes to get to the State Park near my office. I better take advantage of these 50-degree winter days while they last. This weekend's highs: 22 degrees both days. Brrr!
What time of day do you workout? Do you workout twice or more in a day? I typically workout in the morning or lunchtime. In order to get dinner on the table at a reasonable time, I don't have the ability to workout after getting off work around 5pm. You do what you have to do.
