I put a beef chuck roast in the crock pot this morning. I bought it at Aldi last week for 4.99 lb. It was 2 and a 1/2 pounds of red meat. Well, we have about three slices left of chuck roast. I simmered it in the crock pot with cut up carrots, five small potatoes, a half of an older onion, and two teaspoons of jarred garlic and Worcestershire sauce. My husband made a small salad, steamed Brussels sprouts and green peas. I passed on the potatoes.
It was heaven. We have a small amount of veggies left, three slices of roast, and a cup of beef stock for the freezer.
Last night, we had some left overs. The choices were taco meat with cheese, lettuce, tomato, taco sauce, chopped onions, brown rice with black beans, On Tuesday evening, my daughter made pork chops, green peas, corn, and a small salad.
Work is going well for the most part. I've cut down on the overtime. YEAH!! I started a new medication for anxiety, and I'm only one day three. My husband said he thinks I am smiling more. That's kind of nice to hear. I have been going to the gym and working with a trainer. It's expensive, 150 dollars a month for 30 minute sessions once a week for the trainer. The gym costs 14.99 a month for the machines, and full access to the gym. I've met the trainer twice so far, and been using the machines and elliptical 7 out of 9 days so far. I like the gym and I do consider it "hard work". I've also been working on my eating habits. I'm working to incorporate more protein into my diet, less carbs, and more veggies.
