Day 1: January 1, 2013
Wow! Is it really already 2013?! Where did 2012 go? Today, we slept in. Brunch was a Multi-Grain Cranberry Pecan Pancake recipe from my aunt, with a tiny bit of pure maple syrup, a handful of fresh blackberries, and a tablespoon of whipped cream, with a cup of coffee and a small glass of orange juice. No lunch today, as brunch wasn’t until noon. Set off for our first 3.1 mile walk! Made it in less than an hour, despite the freezing rain, so that’s encouraging on the first day back. Dinner was homemade egg rolls, filled with lean pork, shredded brussels sprouts and carrots, garlic, salt, pepper, and ground ginger! Read Genesis 40, as I continue studying the Biblical View of Food and Drink in Scripture. And in bed by 11PM!
Day 2: January 2, 2013
Yesterday went so well, that I’m motivated to not give up yet today! Ate 2 small multi-grain pancakes again (thankful we made a batch big enough to cover breakfasts for the rest of the week). Had a cup of iced coffee this morning. Went for a walk with my friend Shannah and her dog Mr. Sanders over lunch break today–another 3.1 miles! Had 2 leftover egg rolls for lunch with plenty of water. Dinner will be a slice of pork loin, a large leafy salad with some carrots, and a baked potato with just a bit of butter and sour cream. I plan on finishing Genesis in my study tonight…we’ll see how far we get before my hopeful bedtime of 10PM. Hoping to shift my bedtime up, so I can rise early to walk before work.
