I started the day with an hour long cardio session with Kari Anderson's Sweat Express II.

It's a newer DVD and I'm still learning the steps but it's a lot of fun.

Then, I had breakfast, made a green tea and called my dad. We had a nice chat about my first week back to work and his trip to Montreal to see my sister and her family.

After the phone call, started the laundry and the cinnamon swirl protein bread. The cinnamon bread recipe is by Jamie Eason who is a bodybuilder. There was supposed to be 16 servings in the 8 x 8 inch pan but that just seemed like too small a piece so I actually made it as 9 servings, much better in my opinion. The bread turned out wonderfully. Although, the recipe called for it to cook 24 to 28 minutes, it took almost an hour in my oven. But, it was well worth it. It's really yummy.

For lunch, I finished the crustless quiche w/spinach, mushrooms, low-fat cheddar and feta and bacon. I had the cinnamon bread and a tea for dessert.

Then I got caught up on the BLC thread and started making dinner. I ate some cantaloupe while cooking. For dinner I made boneless, skinless chicken breasts with roasted red pepper and garlic sprinkles and kamut pasta with homemade parsley pesto and vegetables (zucchini, mushrooms, onions, green pepper and garlic). I had those and a glass of milk. For dessert, I had a fudgsicle.

And, now it's almost bedtime and so a new week begins. It will be a busy one for me. My training project starts tomorrow with a conference call between the administrators (of which I'm one) and the vendor. I imagine we will be figuring out our schedules for starting to get into the project.

Wednesday, I have a retirement party to go to after work. It's the totally opposite direction of where I work and even further and more opposite from where I live. But, I liked the guy so as long as the weather plays nice, I'll probably go for a little while anyway.

Thursday, I have an appointment with my rheumatologist and Friday, I have a hair appointment after work.

    Man! I feel like I am going to starve to death with your food descriptions! I really need to branch out my cooking techniques. Tonight is plain old spaghetti, an dmom is making it, which is very nice of her.

    But when I listen to what you cook and then Cyndi too, I am like "where did all those ingredients come from?". We really do show our ignorance when it comes to cooking down here in the south. I swear that my uncle would fry grease in order to fry grease! (Mom loves to tell me that!)

    But I promise to branch out and learn what all these new foods are and what I can do with them! I am determined to make something that sounds pretty and looks pretty too!

    Sounds like you're off to a great start this year. Yesterday's foods sound yummy. Keep up the great effort, especially now that you are getting back to work.

    I'm seeing my rheumy tomorrow and getting my hair done on Wednesday. Along with my new glasses it's an all new me.
