Happy Healthy Monday
Well I have managed to get another cold. It just never ends. I think in this past month I have had maybe 3 good days. So I am a bit disappointed that I didn’t get anything done around the house. What really irratates me is that my husband had Friday off and has Mon and Tues off and I bet you anything he doesn’t do anything around here. Poor baby has worked too hard he needs to rest.. Whatever!!
I did manage to buy some things to make my lunches so this week I need to focus on eating healthy. Both hubby and I am going to try not to eat out all week, lunch and dinner, and reward ourselves with a nice meal on the weekend. I think we can do it.
My knee has felt pretty good this weekend but then I have been laying down a lot so I hope this continues. I must say I miss all my Mamavation Sista’s. I don’t get online too often during the day. When I do I see a bunch of new names so welcome to all the people I have missed to welcome. I need to get back to drinking water so water czar please send me reminders to drink. I have gone from like 80z to none. Not good.
Hope you all have a good weekend. Enjoy the recipe.
