Day 9 - Tuesday, November 17th

Today was a boring day. On my drive home from work I was trying to think of something random that I could talk about, but all I could think about was going home and making my dinner. It was a new recipe that I actually got from the Special K website. It was awesome. But, you will have to wait to hear about it. Ha! Evil laughter...

Day 9:

Breakfast - Red Berries Cereal + Chai Tea Latte
AM Snack - Raspberry Bliss Bar (it really is blissful)
Lunch - Strawberry Protein Bar with of course, Strawberries
PM Snack - Italian Tomato and Herb Crackers
Dinner - Pork Chops with a Pomegranate glaze and roasted potatoes!!

Workout - 5 minute warm up, 20 minute jog and 5 minute cool down.

Dinner was totally awesome. Basically you get some nice pork loin chops, about an inch thick. You rub them with some salt, pepper and cinnamon. Cook them in a skillet until they are very close to being done. Remove them, but keep them warm. In the same skillet, pour in a cup of pomegranate juice, 4 teaspoons of sugar, and about a quarter of a small onion diced (this is for about 4 servings). Let that mixture come to a boil and boil it for 3 minutes or until the sauce reduces. Put the pork chops back in to the skillet and finish cooking them. Serve them with some roasted potatoes and be sure to cover them with the remaining sauce. It is delicious!!!
