Number of photos taken: 77.
As opposed to my trick-or-treater themed photos yesterday, today I think my shots were more varied. Less cute, but at least more varied.
I started out the morning heading back to a Weight Watchers meeting, where I was welcomed back. Felt simple & great.
I came home and made a good effort to track what I was eating, be a little more mindful, and go easy on myself.
I made myself a gorgeous little food notebook. I’ll look for inspiration anywhere.
Then I took a quick trip out to a home decor shop with my parents. I don’t think I’ve ever bought anything more than hand lotion at the shop, but I needed something to do in the morning, so I tagged along. It was a miserable, rainy day. But I love this shot.
Then I finally tested out my new slow cooker with some healthy vegetarian chili. It was a pretty unique recipe. Not spicy, but not sweet, and it had great, simple ingredients.
This is the slow cooker I chose after an afternoon’s worth of research: Hamilton Beach 33565 Simplicity 6-Quart Slow Cooker.
And this is the chili recipe: Slow-Cooker Vegetarian Chili With Sweet Potatoes.
I snuggled up all afternoon and Christmas movie season officially began in my household.
P. came home around dinnertime, and asked me out for Chinese. I obliged. And agreed to frozen yogurt on the way home. Maybe not the best way to kick off a new healthy start. But it’s the most reserved I’ve been — maybe ever. And I enjoyed every bite.
One more day left in Week in the Life! I am setting an intention to keep my camera on me at all times tomorrow and capture all of the small details that make up life right now. A huge early thank you to Ali Edwards for creating and hosting this amazing, inspiring project.
