Short-timers, I Has It

I'm pretty sure this is my last week at my current job. It would be nice if my new job gave me a definite start date, but hey, I try not to ask for much. So, what does one do on a Tuesday of one's last week when the boss is not in the office?

Some of this:

A little of this:

And blog, of course. See how I did that up there? Killed two birds with one stone. I showed you how bored I am, and also the boots that now fit me that I wrote about yesterday. I couldn't pull it together today to come up with a whole outfit to wear them with, so I just have them on under my jeans. I figure that's a good way to break them in.

Since yesterday, I have been right back on track with my Paleo eating. I endured a headache for most of the day, but knew that it was just my body telling me I indulged a little too much over the Thanksgiving holiday. Today I feel great. I'm really beginning to appreciate how forgiving my body is when I treat it right.

The key to my success this week is going to be planning my meals. I have been slipping a little in that department, and really the only way for me to be my best is with thorough planning my meals and perfect execution of my plans. For the first time in 3 months I made my breakfast for the entire week (a delicious scramble). I used to do that every week. Somehow I got off track and started bringing larabars or apples and almond butter, or natural chicken sausages for my breakfasts. These items are not ideal.

I have 2 pounds of flank steak currently marinating in my fridge that is going to turn into a delicious dinner and lunch for tonight and tomorrow. I'm stocked on broccoli slaw, cauliflower, carrots, lettuce, and various meats. Hello Paleo wagon! I'm back on!


  1. CUTE BOOTS! Thank you for indulging me and my request for pictures of the boots. They are super cute.

  2. can.not.wait. to fit in to knee high boots. Great job!!

  3. Those boots look awesome! Congrats!

  4. Is there anything special about making scramble for the week? Does it stay fresh? Storing technique? Thanks!

  5. Anonymous-
    I make the scramble on Sunday night, and I portion it into 5. I keep two portions out (for Monday and Tuesday) and freeze the remaining 3. I pull out a portion from the freezer the night before I take it to work so I don't have to microwave a total ice block.

    The scramble freezes well.
