Good Sunday evening!
I took my best friend Jean’s advice and went running this morning first thing. I’m talking before breakfast and before coffee. I understand why this is a great idea and I really want to strive to do this from now on, especially that summer time heat will be coming and there is no way I can run in the afternoon in that. But I must say, I was dragging my butt! However, afterwards, I was full of energy and ready to tackle house work and then yard work. After my run, I had some cereal and protein for breakfast:
Grape Nuts with half a banana and Almond Milk, with one organic scrambled egg, and a cup of coffee. Oh how I love coffee. After my house cleaning escapade, I made a huge salad:
Doesn’t it look pretty? I used organic romaine lettuce, (I can actually taste the difference between regular and organic lettuce, I sware I can taste the chemicals) carrots, cucumber, tomato, reduced fat cheese, lean ham with honey mustard dressing. I couldn’t finish this, but it was oh so good. After lunch, I worked in the yard to cut back the dead frost-bitten foliage, then I showered and hit the grocery store. I nibbled on half a Clif bar before to make sure I wasn’t hungry at the grocery store. We all know what that leads to.

I was craving a Beer in the Rear Chicken. This recipe is so much fun and makes the moistest, most flavorful chicken. Check it out at this link:
I can’t help it, I love chicken wings. It was delicious. I also had asparagus and couscous made with whole wheat, spinach, and tomato. For dessert, there were these addictive little chocolate covered espresso bits:
They look like black beans don’t they? I’m sure I had more than my fair share of these. It was so worth it. My belly is full and my eyelids are heavy. I ‘m off to bed and looking forward to an inspirational day tomorrow at Cross Creek Ranch. Good night.
