Looks like a ton of granola, but I swear, it's only 1/2 cup (granola is one thing I always measure - too easy to overdo it)!
After three weeks off (combination of annual shutdown and having to "use it or lose it" on some vacation days), Jeff is back at work today. Max is still home for another few days, but
I've got myself set up with a workout schedule once again - I'll talk about that on Wednesday. But I have to say, it has felt GREAT to put on my workout clothes and move.
While I didn't go off the rails (very often) during the December, I am glad to not only have the time to grocery shop and get fresh food in the house, but also have the energy to prepare it. I really do prefer to eat regular food - treats are nice, but I like how I feel when I'm feeding myself the old standbys - salads, eggs, fresh fruit, grilled chicken, vegetables. Which could explain why the oranges I've been eating for the last few days have been particularly appealing (haha, punny) to me...I was taking "grab and go" foods like a Clif Bar or a protein drink to work for either lunch or dinner - and while they are much better for me than what I would have done in the old days (Taco Bell, I'm looking at you), there is still nothing like single ingredient foods. I'm actually relieved that I like to eat this way now - it makes maintaining my weight much less of a struggle.
Making extra money is nice. And we inadvertently redecorated our family room with it (we weren't planning on doing this, but as seen in my goals post, when do I ever really plan anything?) - pictures coming eventually. But honestly? I missed my old life. And I'm glad it's back.
