I think she liked it!!!
We woke up Monday to a mess of a day. About 8-10 inches were on the ground and it was still coming down pretty hard. We decided to wait until 8:40ish to plow out the driveway and then I took the 9:30 train into work. For breakfast, I made an egg-white omelet with Mexican light cheese and spinach topped with some coffee and a piece of whole wheat toast. I also had DanActive Yougart drink. (sorry I took a bite or two...)
I made a huge lunch for the week, but left it at home. booo. So, I ran downstairs to Cosi around 12:30 and got the Tomato Soup with Wheat Bread. It is the best soup in the world, but I know its not good for me. I'm actually scared to look up the calories!!! The day went by pretty fast and I worked pretty quickly on the four videos I needed to finish. I took the express train home and Dave picked me up. We went to the Natick Mall to meet up with my brother and his wife Natalia, for Natalia's birthday. We ate at Cheesecake. I got Tuna tar tar salad with Avocado and Tomato. It was really delicious. We got home late- 10pm and went straight to bed. Sorry no pictures!
This morning we woke up with plenty of time to make my express train at 7:40 AM. I got into work at about 8:30AM and have eaten my oatmeal and my yogart drink. And I'm drinking tons of water. That's it for now. In an hour, I'm going to run at the gym- hoping to get in 6 miles since I didn't get a chance to run the last two days.
I ended up running 5. I was feeling great, but I didn't have enough time. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to wake up early and run a lot.
Tonight, I got home and cooked tons. I made Orangy Maple Pork Tenderloin, Asparagus and Squash. It was delicious. Here's what I did.
I seared 1lb Pork Tenderloin in a hot skillet. When all four sides were lightly browned, I added 1/4 cup of Dark Amber Maple Sryap, 1/4 Cup of Orange Juice, 1 Tablespoon of Dijon Mustard, 1 Tablespoon of Grainy Mustard and a tiny half spoonful of Thai Red Curry Paste. After about 7 minutes, I put the pan in the oven on 375 to cook through for another 15 minutes. This is how it turned out:
While I was cooking, I decided to make my favorite dip as well. i had to make it before my avocado went bad! All you do is dice an avocado, two tomatoes and half a red onion, add tons of salt and pepper and lots of lime juice and ta-da, you have one tasty dip that can be eaten with chips or with a protein. Yum! I'm thinking I am going to make Chili tomorrow night so it will be a nice topping. Here's what it looked like!
Okay, I am off to bed, lets hope I can wake up tomorrow morning for the gym! (5AM!)
