Giving 2013 a Fine Send Off

Wednesday, December 04, 2013

I had another decent day yesterday! I ate what I planned, I did most of the chores I set out to do, including one of the two slow cooker meals. I tried a garlic chicken recipe. It called for dark meat, but I used breasts. It was a little overcooked and a little dry despite all the juices. I'm having one of my favorite dishes for lunch today: sweet potato topped with black beans and salsa and some wonderfully fragrant wild rice.

I'm showing some real stick-to-it-edness with fitness too. I did my bike first thing in the morning and did the EA Sports workout on the PS3 in the evening. Bonus points for the p.m. workout!

P.S. I read a blog by a new Sparkfriend *waves to Pam* yesterday about exercising your willpower. I'm here to tell you, it works! The more you use it, the stronger it becomes. So, pick a small thing you'd like to change and just keep working at it. You're worth it!

Thanks for sparking with me!

    Some substitutions don't work well and I think breast meat for dark in a crockpot is one of them. The time probably needs to be adjusted because the meat is naturally less juicy.

    I am not a big fan of sweet potatoes but that lunch sounds really good.

    I might have to look into some crock pot meals! Might free up some time for other projects around the house.

    Way to go on the double work out and sticking with your meal plan! I'm not a huge fan of the crock pot...I know folks swear by them. I feel like if you cook anything over 5 or 6 hours in it it's dry, even if you have one with a timer and it goes to warm after that time period. I tend to stick to using that on the weekend when I can watch it more effectiviely than when I'm at work. Although maybe putting the meat in their frozen might's worth a try.
