Beans Beans Beans!

My New Years? It was glorious!, thanks, how was yours?

As previously mentioned, our fare for the evening:

I am now on day 2 of the cleanse. Yesterday was spent sick in bed all day, so it wasn't too difficult to avoid anything sugary or caffeiney. Today I had to work 12 hours and it was a ROUGH morning with no coffee. AYAyguynigravy it was ugly.

On a normal morning when I have to work see, I don't care to speak or be spoken to until after I have my coffee and quiet time. That's just the way it is. This taking away of the caffeine business is not nice. It's not pretty, nor is it fun. Neither is it painless. Nor happy.

Just plain uuuu-gly.

That said. I haven't been doing too bad, once I woke up in the afternoon. Then actually I found myself with energy. Am I killing it? Not completely, tonight for dinner I had a cup of rice, while if it were brown would have been perfect with my beans and veggies, but instead I made saffron. Nevertheless, today I did really well on the eating front. Please observe my dinner.

The beans were really yummy indeed, and I made a pot that will last a couple days. I sauteed up some onion, green pepper, and garlic and then added 1 can each of black and pinto beans. Add a can of tomatoes with the chilies, then 1/2 tbsp cumin, a little dash of garlic powder, and a dash of greek seasoning. Really easy and fabulously tasty stuff.

Almost makes up for lack of coffee. But not quite.

Here's something I've been avoiding like the pig flu. My scale. I am terrified to step on and see what number rings up. I know I should for weight loss purposes. But I just don't wanna. Well. Maybe one day soon I will work up the nerve.

Twenty ten day 2, so far, so good!
