I can not believe how long it has been since I blogged. It feels like forever. As much as I missed blogging, I had so much going on in my life… work drama, relationship drama, switching to the midnight schedule, and school I was starting to feel a little overwhelmed. My journey to a healthy lifestyle took a detour, and I lost sight of my goals. After reading some blogs, I realize I’m not the only one. I also realize that I’m not a failure (like I was thinking). I only fail if I allow this detour to break me.
So today here I sit multitasking. I’m watching Man on Fire (love this movie), writing this blog, and tackling this humongous load of laundry. It’s clean, just has to be put away.
To get my eating back on track I’ve been starting every morning with a green monster.
I went back to what I knew for a snack and had plain greek yogurt, banana, and glazed walnuts. I will never get tired of this combo.
I honestly can’t say what happened to my eating habits. I would be embarrassed to tell you all the junk I’ve been eating lately. I guess after I got back from vacation I just never was able to get back into the routine I used to be in. This is a new month, a new start, its time to stop making excuses, and time to get back on track.
For lunch (I say lunch because it’s my lunch, but I’m eating it at everyone else’s dinner time) I decided to try a recipe that had been on my must try list. Jessica’s Caramelized Chicken with Mushroom Sauce.
I started out with thinly cut chicken breast and flour. I dredged each chicken piece in the flour while I was waiting for the olive oil to heat up.
I cooked the onions and mushrooms
And can I just add that any recipe that gives me a reason to open a bottle of wine I already love 🙂
Jessica’s recipe cause for bread, but since I didn’t have any I decided to pair it with a 1/2 cup of baked black beans that needed to be eaten. I also decided to finish up Justine’s pizza just incase I really needed bread (which I didn’t). I guess it was a day for old and new. Sometimes i feel accomplished when i get rid of a few containers in my fridge.
All I can say is fabulous.
