The body needs rest … especially mine

I came home tonight from work and the gym (Zumba) and I was just exhausted. I showered and got in my jammies.

I got on the couch and cuddled up with a blanket and started watching Three Sheets. Then Man vs. Food came on. Adam was eating some spicy stuff and I started to think I wanted to eat something.

I am not too picky when it comes to veggies. There are few I won’t eat or won’t try. I think this may be the first time I am having Brussels Sprouts.

Today for lunch my work team went out to celebrate the newest permanent member of our team. I looked at the menu ahead of time to get some ideas. But Skates always has specials–usually different kinds of fish, which is what I figured I would have. I had water to drink; a taste of a few appetizers; I ordered grilled rainbow trout with no oil, which came with fingerling potatoes in a little olive oil and a tomato/olive mix; for dessert I had a non-fat cappuccino and sorbet; … Continue reading
