Good morning guys! I’m not going to title my posts like this every day of Lent, but this is a pretty big benchmark so I thought it was only appropriate!
Last night I was feeling not good at all, and Nate had a ton of stuff to catch up on from being gone all weekend, so we ended up staying home most of the night. However, we did go out for a big juicy burger one last time…call it our Fat Tuesday celebration! What it comes down to is I just didn’t feel like cooking, and we didn’t have anything ready to cook, so rather than going to the store we went to BJ’s Brewhouse. I started with a 5 oz P.M. Porter:
We each got a burger to celebrate my last meat hurrah for 40 days. I went with the California burger, with avocado, chipotle, and ranch, served on garlic sourdough. ‘Twas delightful, and definitely a tasty way to go out!
We stopped by the store to pick up a couple things on the way home, namely some veggie stuff for me! I’m excited to see where this takes me spiritually and physically, but I’m not expecting anything. God will give me what He has in store for me.
Breakfast this morning was PB & J Oats with a twist: I did banana instead of pumpkin!
And I did NOT like it. I don’t think the banana was ripe enough yet and it was kind of clumpy and hard. BLECH. But I think I would rather have pumpkin anyway…it’s just as good with fewer calories and SUPER creamy. Now I just have to find some more canned pumpkin…
I feel like Christie posted a really good question today, so I’m going to steal it for here as well: Why do you read blogs? Is it for escapism, food ideas, to know about people’s personal lives…? I love reading mainly to feel like I’m part of a community who cares about food and health as much as I do. I read for encouragement from strong women all over the globe. I read for new workout and recipe ideas, and I read because it’s something I love to do. I don’t think it’s fair to expect to know every detail of someone’s life by reading their blog, but I am thankful for the encouraging and compassionate and REAL bloggers that I do have the pleasure of reading about!
