Back to school!

The kids are back to school tomorrow!! Woo-hoo! We had a good three week vacation, but I always look forward to them being in school so I get a little bit of time to myself. Not much, since Lincoln is still with me, but it is certainly easier to get my work outs in when I only have one kid at home all day.

Today we continued our gardening adventures by thinning our cold-weather veggies and starting our warm-weather seedlings indoors. Hopefully all of our hard work will pay off with tons of fresh, healthy, home-grown vegetables this summer!!

Breakfast was another egg and veggie scramble. I think it's easiest to stick to this meal if I'm trying to avoid carbs. I'm not totally sure that's the way I want to go--it hasn't really worked out well, but I guess I can continue to give it a try.
Lunch was leftovers from last night. I had made a recipe that I have been wanting to try for months. I read about it on Ryan's cousin's wife's blog (got that?) It's called Island Pork Tenderloin Salad with Coconut Bread. It was so good!!! I'll have to post the recipe...
I saved up my carbs to have that bread. I need to find a way to make it healthier--soooooooo yummy!!! The salad is full of tasty tidbits--avocadoes, red peppers, golden raisins, spinach. Yum!

For dinner I made the family fajitas--
on whole wheat tortillas, of course. I just had mine on top of salad.
I just marinate my chicken and beef in lime juice, garlic and a spice blend (pick any one that sounds good.) Then I saute the meat in the marinade with onions and peppers and serve with fat free sour cream and salsa.

Today's work out was 30 minutes on the elliptical and a nice upper body work strength session, followed by some Pilates.

Please post the Pork recipe! It sounds delish, and I have a few tenderloins in my freezer that need to be made into something fabulous!

Oh and I don't care if you want to link to the recipe. My blog is public. Whatever is easiest for you. :)
