Day 7: Monday, January 7, 2013
Today was another leftovers day, using up the last, lonely produce in the fridge. For breakfast, I had more multi-grain pancakes; lunch was a bbq beef sandwich. Had Ryan and Emily over for dinner, and experimented a bit. I had a bag of red potatoes that I sliced in the food processor with an onion; pan fried them in butter with some garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper. Meanwhile, we pitted and chopped a package of plums and simmered them in a little butter with the juice of a lime and two lemons, some honey, nutmeg, a little thyme, and a pinch of coarse salt. It turned out very good! At the last minute, I fried up an egg to top the potatoes and chopped up some strips of fresh green pepper. No workout today, unfortunately. Still working on getting to bed earlier so I can workout in the morning.
Day 8: Tuesday, January 8, 2013
Multi-grain pancake for breakfast; leftover bbq beef, red potatoes, and plums for lunch; a bowl of vegetarian black bean soup from Panera for dinner. Since we were out of food, we decided to go to Panera for dinner (using a gift card we got at Christmas) and pick up some groceries. No more exercise than walking for about 30 minutes through Target (does that count?).
Day 9: Wednesday, January 9, 2013
Breakfast was half a bagel with a little butter and a banana; dinner was the other half of the bagel; and lunch was plums, a large bunch of celery with some peanut butter, and two more of those multi-grain pancakes. Really busy day at work today–didn’t leave till about 6:25 tonight–but it was a good day. Had some good time reviewing the DFF6 script and searching Scripture for accompanying passages to use for the study guide; passages that stood out to me especially were Psalm 66, Isaiah 43, and Daniel 3. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to meet my friend to walk tonight, but it turns out my workout buddy forgot her gym clothes too, so it’s okay. I need to make sure I workout tomorrow! Fortunately, I’m still down 2 pounds from my New Year’s Day weigh in.
