Today is a WHIRLWIND day! I think it was the fact that I had a coffee yesterday at 2:30pm or so but I was wired! I could not fall asleep until well after 1am! And then I got up a whole hour before my alarm went off this morning, ready and raring to go! It's a VERY busy day! FINALLLYYYYYYYYY the last of my furntiure is finally being delivered...they better not screw this one up or I'm going to blow a fuse! I'm also getting a delivery of groceries this morning. Then I am running over to see my LCSW, praying that I can make it before my 10am appointment. And then tonight I am going out with my parents to Outback Steakhouse. I've never been there but I've already been over the menu and I planned my day around having their California Chicken Salad, which tickled my taste buds! Needless to say with everything going on, I will be running from dawn to dusk!!!
So let's start with weigh in... I weighed in on Saturday having lost the weight/fluid that I had put on the previous week and a half after a fender bender with a certain wagon. So I wasn't expecting miracles...but when I got on today I was pleasantly suprised! I also had my camera in the bedroom so I actually snapped a quick picture of the scale after I stepped off (don't want the few ounces that the camera ways to reflect on my weight, hahaha!).
|-2 pounds from last week's weigh in!!!!!!!!!!|
Heck yes! I am very happy with that! How can I complain!? I've been working hard and it paid off!
Over the last couple weeks I have been doing my very best to eat cleaner. I have relied heavily on Jenny Craig, Smart Ones and Lean Cuisine for quick easy meals. And don't get me wrong, I do love them! I always have a couple in my freezer if I really don't feel like cooking (I feel its setting myself up for success, choosing a frozen meal over ordering out). But I've been cooking chicken, doing my delicious taco salads, and last night I made a fantastic dinner!!! Here's the recipe!!
Slow Cooker Pork TenderloinServes: 6 (approx 2.6-3oz serving)

3/4 cup Red Wine
1 cup Water
3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
3 tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 medium onion sliced into rings
Black Pepper to Taste

2) Cook on low for 4-5hours!
3) Remove meat and let rest on a cutting board for approx 20 minutes covered in foil before serving.
* How freaking easy is that?? I served mine with some Alexia Chipotle Sweet Potato fries and I put just a tiny bit of the gravy over everything. FANTASTIC!!
