Who needs the gym when you have snow to shovel?! Yes siree, I’m stiff. Probably not the good kind of stiff…like the kind you get from a good workout…but more the bad kind you get from bending and lifting inappropriately. Either way, it’s a workout!!

I’m not going to go over what I ate this weekend, because it was truly too much. I forgot to weigh-in this morning so I don’t know what damage I may have done…so for now I’m not going to worry about it.

The good part about a snowy weekend is that I had time to do some cooking. I had finally gotten close to the end of the frozen meals I had been working my way through for the last little while and it was time for some more stocking up. Thankfully I had thought of this before the big snow came so I had all the ingredients on hand. I made a batch of Smackeroni & Cheese (from Eat Shrink & Be Merry), some beef stew (cooked all day in my crock pot), and a batch of those Chicken & Bean Rollups that came out of a recipe book from DBF’s nutrionist. That should keep me going for a while! I also boiled off some eggs for lunches this week and tonight I’m hoping to find time to put together a batch of zucchini & chocolate bran muffins too. Yum-o.

I’d like to head to the gym for some cardio and good stretching tonight too (stretching is so much easier and better when you are all warmed up from a workout)…so hopefully time allows. Other than that, I got nothin.

Today’s eats…trying to be more mindful of what I’m shoving in my yap:

– coffee (I’ve been enjoying a bit of cream lately instead of skim milk and loving it!)
– whole wheat roll with egg salad
– small serving leftover beef stew (made too big a serving for last night’s dinner)
– grapes
– tea & Leclerc granola bar
– Smackeroni & mixed green salad
– muffin if I make them…otherwise probably hot chocolate
