As a result, in 2008 I didn't really do anything for myself as far as losing weight or exercising until late in the year. I met you great peeps through your blogs: Katschi, Spunkysuzi, Escape from Obesity, Mizfit, HollyALP, and so many more. Well, you can see for yourself, they're over there in my followers list and in the list of people that inspire me. By reading your blogs, I've been encouraged, I've cried, and I've ROFLMAO. I've cooked some good stuff, too ,by seeing what you all are eating. And now I'm ready for 2009 to be the year that I put me first and lose this weight, this suit of armour that I've been wearing for the last 20 years. I put it on when my heart got broken. When my feelings dried up and blew away. Anyway, I digress...
Today is the first day of a brand new year. I woke up in a much better mood than yesterday. Don't know why but I think I just wanted to be in a better mood.
So, I cooked a recipe from The Eat-Clean Diet book, Adobo-Rubbed Pork Tenderloin (p. 200), some roasted veggies - butternut squash, parsnips, carrots, & onion. We also cooked black-eyed peas and cabbage, of course, for the usual New Year's day luck, ya know. Anyway, the meal was great!! Here are pictures of some of the meal. Not much left of the roasted veggies. They were a hit!
After we ate I went for a bike ride outside. The weather was great for biking today. I'm off work till the 5th so I'm planning on getting a lot of riding in if the weather holds up.
Hope everyone had a successful day. If not, love yourself and start fresh tomorrow!
