Sat Jan 10th - What I'm Eating

Breakfast: well it was really much more of a brunch due to us sleeping in... I made multi-grain pancakes (and ate 2 smallish ones) grilled in coconut oil in my cast iron skillet, buttered and drizzled with real maple syrup. Scrambled eggs with colby-jack cheese. Honey Vanilla Chamomile tea.

Dinner: Roasted Chicken with reduction sauce. steamed carrots with a little cinnamon. baby greens salad with homemade balsamic vinaigrette dressing. water. pills (yes, very late today)

Snack: apple and provolone cheese. water.

before bed - pills and water.

Analysis: Breakfast should have included some sort of veggie - I could easily have put tomatoes and spinach and mushrooms (etc) in the eggs... The pancakes were a splurge but they were whole grain and I didn't pig out on them, and I didn't use artificial syrup...real is ALWAYS better than fake. I was working from 12-5 so that made lunch hard since breakfast was so late. I brought my apple and cheese but then didn't get a chance to eat them either. I need to make it my priority...its not good to skip meals! Dinner was amazing - we roasted the chicken ourselves - well hubby did the work! We reduced the drippings with a little white wine and chicken stock, which made an incredibly tasty sauce. I'll post the roasting directions and the vinaigrette recipe in a separate post...I'm going to put all recipes from here on out separate I think, to make it easier to find them.

I also forgot to take my pills this morning - I actually had them in my pocket all day long but never took them until dinner. Oh well, better late than never.

Exercise again alluded me today - I am feeling guilty because my Mom and Dad just kicked off their exercise commitment. I need to start thinking about it (and actually doing it) in the morning because as the day wears on, I feel less and less like doing it. Its just really tough on the days I am at work or otherwise not at home...ok, ok, no excuses! Everyone has a life!
