Because I worry about everything, I have trouble leaving the slow cooker on while I’m at work for fear that something bad will happen. So, when I had Monday off and a slow cooker meal appeared on the blog, I knew it was meant to be. It was delicious. I made Sweet Barbacoa Pork, Cilantro Lime Rice, and Cuban Style Black Beans.
It turned out very well, and I was happy with it. And aren’t the colors of the second picture just gorgeous. I wanted to stop cooking then and just look at it. Instead, I kept going and turned it into a burrito bowl style serving, and stacked the meat on the beans on the rice. I didn’t get a picture of the rice once the cilantro and lime juice had been added in, but it was pretty and green. It was also good for lunch the next day.
For the last two nights I haven’t had the chance to cook since I’ve been staying late at school to work on getting the yearbook finished, and today when I got home I decided I needed to disassociate my blog from my personal email address. I spent a good hour or two changing my blog from one email address to another and then following all of my favorite blogs with my new account and unfollowing with my old account. If you happened to notice that I popped up as a new follower, I’ve been there all along. But hello again!
And while I did make pork Monday night for dinner, that’s not all that was porky. This girl’s gotta do something about the number on the scale. It’s not even a little bit funny. It is, though, a little bit scary. I cannot seem to motivate myself. I am envious of those of you who claim to be addicted to working out. I’m more addicted to making excuses about why I don’t have to work out.
Any suggestions for things you did to shake it up and jump start a current or past weight loss attempt? I need something different than drinking a lot of water or exercising more…anyone done one of those cleanses?
Anywho, aside from that, thank you so much for reading my blog and humoring me and my thoughts. I looked at my followers today and have been incredibly thankful and humbled to think that there are 61 people out there who want to hear what I have to say. If you’re new around these parts, welcome!
