Good Morning! I am Home ~ Sweet ~ Home this morning, and look what decided to welcome me!
Yep. Winter is here to stay for a bit, and I am thankful we all arrived home last night safe and sound. We are refreshed and relaxed and filled with memories of family and fun to lead us into a new week.
Some of us enjoyed breakfast at a favorite little diner during our beach weekend.
And I can vouch that enjoying a healthy breakfast on vacation is possible! This omelet with spinach, tomato, feta cheese, and whole-grain toast was delicious!

Happy Friday! Today marks two full weeks of me successfully sending my husband off to work with a healthy lunch packed in a neat container. The thing is, I go through phases. Ask my family. I get ideas and jump in headfirst. And then something happens, and that's that. Now, however, my husband is on a healthy living journey, and I realize his chances of being successful will improve drastically if I lend support. And let's be honest, I am on the same journey. Middle age lends itself to rethinking one's habits.
I have always been a meal planner of some sort. Sometimes it was with a rigid schedule written out and posted on the bulletin board. Other times it floated around in my already cluttered mind stopping long enough for one meal idea to jump out at me. Now, I sit down, plan our meals carefully, and make the grocery list accordingly. Now, I also plan lunches for Steve to take to work and find it so much easier for us. The internet has many awesome meal prep/plan ideas that I adapt to our needs. I pick one main thing weekly, like turkey wraps or tuna salad. Then I serve that in different ways each day. This week I made a tuna and egg salad with greek yogurt and did it differently each day.
