I am so glad to be back into my routine again after traveling. I have slept so poorly for the past 4 nights that I conked out really early last night after we got back from a day of driving. We moved the TV back into the bedroom so I could watch football knowing I would fall asleep LOL! Sure enough, I blinked out pretty quickly and woke up almost 9 hours later. Yippee!!
I was ready for my bagel today. Cranberry Walnut.
Then we hit up the grocery store for some fresh produce. I ate my body weight in snacks the last few days. Fatigue really just saps any kind of discipline I have.
I don’t feel bad about it, however. I feel that there should be no guilt about eating. Yes, I ate a lot of chocolate. Yes, I had a lot of nuts. But, if I feel guilt about that, then it takes the point away from eating the foods I like. And it wastes the enjoyment I had eating it. Then that is also wasting the food itself.
Funny how I seem to be able to just switch that eating off, even if it is a couple of days’ worth. I guess that is what ‘normal’ people do?
I actually find it harder to get back into a work routine LOL! I had to start working again today, although I was working on Friday, albeit in a different location.
Lunch time was some tuna on a pita. Quick and easy. I was totally craving berries, too.
It is already melting some because the sun came out, even though it is still pretty cold.
After more work I took a break while watching some football! So sad the Saints are out of it.
I also cooked up some brown rice in bulk today ala Alton Brown. You just put 1.5 cups of brown rice and 2.5 cups of boiling water into a 9×9 baking dish. Cover tight with foil and bake at 375 for an hour. Perfect brown rice every time with absolutely no effort!
I used some of that brown rice for dinner. Nice stir fry, which I did with teriyaki sauce.
Surprised to see beans, right? I wanted to live on the edge! These are pinto beans and don’t seem to have that grainy texture that other beans have. Lots of fiber in this bowl, as John made sure to point out to me…
Gotta make sure I don’t get into too much of a food rut. Although with the rice I made, you will be seeing that again this week 😀 Good thing it freezes well.
Finished up with work for the day and I have a truffle set aside to have for my snack. It really feels good to be home and back in routine again. Now I just need to catch up on some blog reading 😯
I am just finishing up with Women Food and God, so I will be talking about that this week. I know you can’t wait for my opinion on that 😉
