Can anyone believe that it's almost February? What happened to January? This new year is just flying by. We have a fairly busy week with some activities and projects going on, so I'm trying to keep the menu fairly simple. My goals for this week are:

  • Drink more! I'm trying to drink half my body weight in water/GGMS/hot tea each day.
  • Exercise 3x
  • Continue to wake up early, so I can fit in my exercise and shower before starting the day with the kids schooling.
  • Double at least one meal to put it in the freezer for a night when we need a really quick meal.
Here's what we'll be eating this week:

B - Apple Cinnamon Yogurt (E) pg. 250
L - Salad with cheddar, bacon and Ranch (S)
S - celery with peanut butter (S)
D - Chicken Stir-fry over brown rice (E)

L - Just Like Campbell's Tomato Soup (S) pg. 292
S - Cottage Berry Whip (FP) ***Making a double batch of this and putting the other half in the freezer. Just remove it about a half hour before you want to eat it, so it's not completely solid.

L - Quesadilla with fresh veggies (S) pg. 307
S - leftover Cottage Berry Whip (FP)
