Menu Plan Monday



Good Morning! My theory this past week has been this: If I wear cute jewelry (earrings, necklace) and a curly, messy, on the side 'do'...then no one notices my 3 inch long black roots. AFD and 31Bits have a way of making me feel pretty, even on the worst of hair days. And that's sayin' something! (Helps when your cute color block top matches your rad couch cushions too, right?) So...I keep going back and forth. Do I wait it out? Try to naturally get hair like this? Or do I help it along...buy a box of semi-permanent chestnut and dye the top third of my head? Please discuss!

Here is what will be on our table this week:

Monday - Crock pot bbq chicken, cheesy rice and broccoli
Tuesday - Tuna casserole and green salad
Thursday - Chocolate chip waffles with berries and scrambled eggs
Friday - Football Game! Probably leftovers or take-out.

The plan is to make this cheesecake for Friday's game. Again, don't faint.

I am LOVING making all these new flavors!
Last week's Chocolate Raspberry was quite a hit. 
(recipe coming later today)

The Hardest Step Challenge update

Oh. Whoa is me. I am so behind in mileage. According to my goal/commitment, I should be at 43.2 miles completed as of last night. I'm at 33.5 instead. I could see it as a road block. A reason to quit. A reason to remind myself that on maniac days, I often set too lofty of goals. And that leads to non-maniac days. But I wont. Instead, I am going to SEE the white pants I wore to church yesterday that didn't zip 4 weeks ago. Instead, I am going to SEE the lack of Diet Coke on my grocery receipt this week (that would be a first in about 7 years, peeps!)  Instead, I am going to SEE the 3 miles I ran last Friday morning, without stopping. Without being winded. And a little bit faster than I ran them the Monday before. What I am going to SEE, from here on out, is that progress is what matters. Not perfection.

And yay runner! Run to eat some of that cheesecake! And yay for not buying Diet Coke AKA chemically cancer junk! 3 miles is great.

You are awesome! If you want a running partner to help you log a few miles let me know. Discussing the ombre hair will at least log 2 miles. You always look beautiful!
