Well, the little get-together for my sister turned out really well. We had an additional 5 people at the last minute, but we somehow pulled it off with just enough food to not have any left to nibble on later! Which was a *good* thing.
I've found that it's super important for me to have good healthy foods here to eat, because when I get really hungry, if there is nothing else, I'll go for the junk. So I'm working on that this week.
We've also started to walk/jog. I hesitate to even mention this because I feel silly at my age/fitness level trying to start to be a runner. But it's something that I did years ago and something that I want to do again. We've been at it for a couple of weeks and we are doing 2 miles a night now. It takes a little over 40 minutes.
I hope to get my sidebar updated at some point, but it's been (as usual) busy here. Last week BOTH of my younger girls got braces. They put them on in "phases" at this particular orthodontist so we go back tomorrow for "phase 2". So the updating may take a little longer.
Anyway, on to the menu. Still no prices, though I'm working on it.
Monday - Leftover whole wheat homemade pizza, a big salad
Tuesday - Grilled chicken breast and sauteed vegetables over brown rice
Wednesday - Quinoa and Black Beans (didn't get to it last week), salad
Thursday - Youth Advisory Council Meeting and they always bring food. I have no idea.
Friday - Leftover chicken/vegetables in a whole-wheat wrap. Salad
