I have a confession to make, in full disclosure, that I did have two glasses of wine last night after declaring I was kicking alcohol to the curb.Ā  It was the last of a bottle, and now my house is wine free šŸ˜€Ā  My goal is to go the whole month without alcohol and see how that helps with my weight.Ā  The funny thing is, when I started this blog in September 2008, I weighed 168 and that’s exactly what I weigh today šŸ™

But I started my Monday off on the right foot – even after getting a text that my friend was not joining me at the pool . . . I went by myself and swam for 30 minutes! šŸ˜€Ā  It was 73 degrees this morning – the water was perfect and such a great way to start the day.

Although my blood sugars are wonderful, I think I have to go back to calorie counting.Ā  I want to ensure that my percentage of calories from fat stay around 25%, and on days that I work out twice I consume 1800 calories, the days I only work out once at 1500 calories.

Tony makes the best omelets I’ve ever eaten.Ā  I’ve watched him make them dozens of times, but he somehow gets them so fluffy!Ā  So while I was posting my blog yesterday morning, Tony took over the kitchen šŸ˜€

this was actually breakfast and lunch - a ham, spinach, roasted red pepper omelet šŸ˜€

Our store had pork butts on sale for .99 cents a pound.Ā  I don’t know what I was thinking when I put a 7 pound roast in our basket, considering only Tony and I eat it!Ā  Luckily with the leftovers I made east Carolina pulled pork – with lots of vinegar, crushed red pepper and Tabasco.

we marinated the pork in olive oil, fresh lemon, lemon zest, salt, pepper and fresh garlic

By cooking the roast on top of a cast iron skillet, you don’t get any flare-ups from the fat of the pork.

the crunchy outside edges are my favorite
my plate
I added spicy brown mustard to mine - this was so good! So tender and juicy. We pulled it off the grill at 165 degrees, then let it rest for 15 minutes before cutting

Tony actually found this mustard for me at Menard’s of all places!Ā  If you love mustard, find this:

Alright . . . gotta scoot and get ready for work.Ā  I have 30 minutes to make breakfast, lunch and get dressed and out the door.

Make it a great day!
