Gooood morning! It’s Monday! Linking up with Clean Eats, Fast Feets. I missed last week so it’s been a while!
How was your Turkey Day? Has it been that long since we’ve chatted????????? I guess last week was a busy one because now it’s DECEMBER! How did that happen? I’m thankful our weather has been rather nice still but the weatherman says prepare…it’s coming!
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again–reverse dieting is hard! I’ve had a few bumps in the road…translation: Thanksgiving was awesome 😉 For some unknown reason some people gain, then lose once they get back on the horse. Well I got right back on but still haven’t gotten back to where I was, despite my 100% consistency! Sigh…..I need to take progress photos this week–missed last week and the week before I could already see my lines disappearing 😦 It’s part of the process, I know. Can someone send me a memo on that so I don’t forget? I’m still doing better than I was last year at this point so there’s the silver lining!
My son and I traveled to Tennessee for Thanksgiving and it was wonderful–from the weather, traffic, time spent with family, food–an excellent time! I was a little said there was no leftover turkey and cranberry sandwiches at my house 😦 My mom did send us home with some pumpkin pie though!
Last week was a busy one at work. We are preparing to interview interns for next year and it’s been a little hectic. This week will be no different. We did have a quiet weekend at home which is always nice after being out of town. I baked a cake, made a new recipe (both requested by my son). They were both…6 out of 10s LOL. He is currently obsessed with BuzzFeed tasty and watching videos. The cake looked amazing but the taste just wasn’t there–and why they call it a Loaded Dr. Pepper I have no idea–it tastes nothing like Dr. Pepper and you only use 1/2 cup. The second recipe was empanadas. They were ok. No pictures of that as they were gone kinda quick! I also made some fantastic healthy muffins…
I will share the recipe this week.
So a lot of baking/cooking which is what I do when I am procrastinating doing other things ha! I also watched a Netflix series–13 Reasons Why. I never watch TV and I’m not sure why I chose this but they way it was written I just kept watching–and it’s short–like my attention span!
I made an exceptional amount of appearances at the gym < go me!
I also tried a whole bunch of new snacks over the last two weeks. Maybe I will do a WIAW.
I know I’m looking forward to a whole lot in December–parties, cookie swaps, going home and just the holiday feel in general! We have decided no to put a tree up since we will be leaving on the 19th…I’m both relieved and sad. I did however pull out a wreath and snowman because I can’t be a total scrooge! Hope you are all off to a wonderful start to December as well!
