What's For Dinner? Recipe: Pork Medallions with Maple Mustard Glaze

Today was really odd. Yesterday I had been feeling kind of run over and thankfully I woke up feeling better. I got a late start on breakfast - work issues grabbed my attention at first. By the time I went to eat, I was pretty hungry. Usually anything very "solid" as my first meal of the day is a disaster - it feels like rocks landing roughly in my stomach. But leftovers in the fridge sounded really good - so I ended up having half my hamburger patty from the night before, a bit of corn, and rather astoundingly, about 1/2 cup of fettucini alfredo from dinner out with the Man and his step daughter the night before that. Carb overload? Breakfast ended up being a full half of my calories for the day. I did indeed feel the extra carbs, I was a little shaky by the time my lunch break rolled around. I was determined to work of the extra though, so I hit the treadmill downstairs.

Not looking forward to tomorrow - I have to get up fairly early and drive to Charlotte (about 2 hours)  to take the Project Management Institute's CAPM exam (Certified Associate in Project Management). I've been studying like crazy, and my practice tests still aren't really where I want them, though I'm scoring in a range where I'll allegedly pass, as long as I don't totally tank in one subject area.

I'll be heading to bed early tonight to get a good night's sleep.
