"365 of ME" day 2

So for two hours last night and another hour and a half tonight I have been trying to upload pictures for a wonderful post of my DAY 2 Picture along with a huge feast I cooked for our Sunday Dinner with no success. So finally out of desperation I tried to JUST upload the day 2 picture and FINALLY had some success. I do not know why it is not working and I promise I will add more later (because seriously you don't want to miss the dinner post!) but here is my Day 2 picture which was taken Sunday afternoon. I am wearing a scrubs top because I work our church baby nursery a couple times a month and had worked this particular Sunday. Also on Thursday of last week I signed up for a month long boot camp at Gold's Gym - they had an INCREDIBLE deal that I couldn't pass up! Along with getting back on track with my exercise after splurging over the holidays on food, food, and more food (mainly starches and sugars) my acne has FLARED up like no other! So I started eating my Anti-Inflammatory Dr. Perricone diet again. I had done SO good all week but it was bittersweet because I had gotten the Pioneer Woman cookbook for our book dinner this Christmas (see previous post on Book Dinner). So I thought I would just look through it and write down future recipes to try. My above picture is me doing just that after church - pouring through her hilarious and well photographed cookbook! As you can imagine after a couple HOURS of pouring through a cookbook like this I could about smell the cooking buttermilk biscuits and taste the juicy steaks! So what did I do? I cooked a FEAST for dinner throwing all diet no-no's out the window! We had Beef Tenderloin, Buttermilk Biscuits with Honey Butter, Grilled Zucchini and a Mini Apple Pie for dessert! Whenever my picture upload starts working again I will let you have the visual from my decadent meal! In the meantime...I'll try to at least keep up to date on my daily photos! Ta ta ya'll!
