My love of Quinoa. And a bit of an update!

Sunday, December 02, 2012

I'm here! I really am!

I've been working really hard! My job is going okay. I have a performance review on the 10th! This is kind of scary, but I hope I do really well! It means a lot to me.

With the holidays coming, I have christmas shopping and have quite a few presents bought. The job helps. I had to repair my car too, but I am so glad I have new brakes, wipers, battery, and fluids. I have a wonderful dealership that was very honest and understanding to my needs. That's one less thing I need to worry about.

I also have been getting into a routine. My weight loss may not be 100% exercise and diet driven, but it did happen once the overtime started to be required. I have been eating less and drinking more liquids. I am aware that this is not idea, but I am making much better food choices and denying temptation. I even make healthy fast food choices, and I love soups. I made a healthy version of a corn chowder the other day, which was so yummy my boyfriend wanted seconds and thirds. I served it with quinoa, which stretched it even further.

Speaking of, I need to take a trip to the Bulk Barn and buy some more. I am in LOVE with quinoa. I make it as a main dish or a side. I make it with veggies, onions, chicken, I'd even like to try to make it into a break or muffin. It's just perfect in every way! Does everyone love quinoa as much as I do??

I have also been experimenting with different makeup looks, and I love clothes again! I am a very happy camper right now, and I love having a plan. No gym membership yet, but my boyfriend has assured me he is asking about his discount through his work. Very exciting stuff!

With this holiday season upon up, I suggest the following advice: find something you love to eat that is healthy! And try to stay around it as much as possible! Mmmmm quinoa :)

    Quinoa. I like it, but I mix it one to one with brown rice. It lacked substance for me alone.

    I have tried quinoa. I like it. I wouldn't eat it with every meal though. That does remind me, I haven't had any in a while. Now I want some! lol

    I haven't tried quinoa yet, but I've been meaning to. Your love of it makes me want to run out and get some asap!

Good luck at the performance review!
