getting there . . .

I feel like I'm starting to get back on track with the healthy eating and exercise today -- the sleep and junk yesterday must have done some good!

BREAKFAST:
example
Coffee and vitamin not pictured, of course.

BRUNCH:
example
It's nice to be back to our usual weekend "routine" of hashbrowns, greens and mushrooms, and a poached egg. I made a quick citrus salad, too, including a red grapefruit, a blood orange, a Cara Cara orange, and a drizzle of agave.

TREAT:
example
Never-ending supply of Christmas cookies!

MID-AFTERNOON SNACK:
Dan bought me a 12-ounce cherry-chocolate Italian soda while we were out running errands, and I also had another cookie when we got home.

DINNER:
example
Light Whole Wheat Bread (with Earth Balance) from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day, Cannellini Beans and Wilted Greens (from The New Mayo Clinic Cookbook,) and oven-roasted green beans.

TREAT:
example
A piece of Twizzler's "pull'N'peel" licorice. (Dan's a bad influence in the licorice department!)

EXERCISE:
Dan and I ran errands on foot this afternoon, which took us about 90 minutes. We walked at least 2.2 miles, probably more. (Target is a big place!)

~~~~~~~~~~

I must confess, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day really is THAT easy. I'm incredibly impressed -- no more kneading! Bread ready when I want it to be! No dense, nasty, hockey-puck like loaves of whole grain bread! Buy this cookbook, I tell you!

For some reason, my peanut butter and jelly doesn't seem quite as tasty after seeing your photos. :)
