In some ways, I can’t believe January is almost over, and in other ways, I can’t believe it’s still winter. The weather this weekend was absolutely gorgeous! Sunny, hot, and clear skies. I went for a hike with my sister yesterday to soak it up.
When I was walking down a hill, I somehow really screwed my knee up with just one step. It’s feeling better today, but it still really hurts to bend it. Figures- I had literally just been thinking about how I could fit in some running this week when I hurt it.
I started prepping food for the week when I got home so I didn’t have to spend much time cooking after work. I roasted a ton of butternut squash (about the equivalent of one and a half butternut squashes) and I ended up eating most of it! Whoops.
I made my favorite healthy dinner- cinnamon roasted butternut squash (that I ate about five more servings of), kale chips, and pan-fried tofu. And because my dinner was so healthy, I had to balance it out by having ice cream after. I almost made it through the month of January with no dessert, but ice cream has a real hold over me.
Since the oven was already on, I made a batch of granola and roasted a pan of broccoli to snack on. I ended up burning the granola a tiny bit and burnt the hell out of the broccoli
Slow clap for me. I HATE to waste food and I will eat terrible, disgusting things to avoid wasting anything, but even I couldn’t choke this down. Heartbroken.
Speaking of unpleasant things-
I sucked it up and went jean shopping again and got this pair of pants at Old Navy. I normally don’t trust Old Navy pants but I had a coupon that had to be used, so these ended up being 20 bucks. Not too bad!
What’s the weather like in your neck of the woods?
