Happy New Year! 🎉 Hope you were able to stay warm and had a great NYE. I had a wild night here….stayed under the blanket and watched a movie until about 9pm. 9pm is like midnight to me as I am usually up by 4:45 am on work days! It has been so cold here. I was out on Saturday and while loading groceries in my car my hands were so incredibly cold I had to warm up in the car before leaving. It was -30F here on Monday…ridiculous! I only have 5 more weeks left of work here and then my contract is done. I am looking forward to my next move. I am heading to a familiar place…BOSTON! I am so thrilled to be going back to Boston and to the same hospital I was at last year.
I’ve been using the Chemex coffee maker and absolutely loving it. I need to try some of the new coffee combos but so far my stomach is tolerating the coffee which I have been missing. I’ve been having half vanilla almond milk and half coffee. I had some webinar I needed to listen to which is why my breakfast looks like it was for a kid! Still enjoying the Birch Bender Paleo mix. I was low on eggs so I had one whole egg and some liquid whites with pepper and a mix of ketchup and hot sauce.
I spent my morning working on my planner for January and doing some organizing at home. I was prepping lunches for my work week and warmed up some of this turkey broth. I mixed in water and as I mentioned before it is so good. I made 5 sandwiches instead of 4 like I intended for the week so just ate the extra one instead while Sweet Home Alabama was on. I’ve seen that movie a hundred times and it is always a favorite of mine.
I had some leftovers in the fridge that I warmed up and topped with nutritional yeast. I had some veggies I cooked with diced tomatoes and chicken. I added some ground beef, some noodles, and some extra sauce to loosen it up. I topped it with some pepper and called it dinner. I also had some of the power greens from Costco and made a huge salad with some sun dried tomatoes. I snacked on some carrots and a guac while the salad marinated together.
Dessert was a diced apple and cinnamon with more frozen raspberries. These are so good and I’m loving the berries. I bought some So Delicious unsweetened coconut milk vanilla yogurt at WF on the weekend. I had never tried it before and was kinda disappointed. Not sure if the batch is off but there is no vanilla flavor at all. Will probably take it back next week.
That’s it for WIAW this week. Any 2018 plans? Happy New Year!
