Happy Healthy Monday
Well this weekend wasn’t as productive as I had hoped but things got done. Drywall got on the ceiling and window trim got gone. Lots of cleaning and another full bin of garbage was thrown out. Still lots to do.
Food wise I didn’t make my goal of not eating out this week but I did do better. So going to work on that again this week. I so miss my support on twitter. I need to find a way to get back online during the day for the motivation you all give me.
Well this is a short and sweet post since I have lots of work to do today so hope you all have a great week and enjoy this recipe.
