Days 11, 12 & 13 as a Pescetarian

Happy Sunday Funday!!

Whether it was taking it easy, running errands, relaxin' on the couch watching football, playing with the kids, sweating out your hangover I hope you enjoyed it.

Like most weekends, this one went way toooo fast.  Don't you think so?

Here's a re-cap: After a long week, we decided to stay in Friday night.  We cooked dinner (I made a homemade Vegetable Lasagna) and watched The 5-Year Engagement and then Silver Linings Playbook (yeah, we were in a movie mood).  Saturday evening went out to watch the 49ers' beat up on the Packers and last night stayed in to watch the football playoffs, a snippet of the golden globes, Men in Black 3 and made ahi tuna fajitas for dinner.

So....I came to the conclusion that I'm lacking protein in my diet.  I've been feeling more tired lately - more than usual, have experienced some crankiness at one time or another and have had the feeling that I could very easily take a nap in the late afternoon.  While researching my symptoms I came across this article, Protein Deficiency Symptoms - it lists exactly what I have been experiencing.  So to increase my daily intake of protein I'm supplementing a protein powder in with my snacks and or meals.  Disclaimer: If you are experiencing these similar symptoms make an appointment to see your primary doctor as soon as possible, as the article states.  I know myself and my body and believe incorporating this supplement will eliminate my symptoms.  If it doesn't, I'll consider other options.

P on the other hand is doing just fine.
