Our household was turned upside down last week, and all I can say is: Thank Goodness for meal plans! Not having to worry about dinner time when everything else in our lives was a bit topsy turvy was such a blessing.
So what happened? Our heat pump died…during one of the coldest weekends we’ve had in a long time. We had lots of people in and out to check our system, then to give us estimates on a new system, then to actually install the system.
Also, we had a day of pretty icy conditions, which brought the kids home early one day and sent them in late the next day, so my schedule went pretty much out the window.
Lastly, the exhaust pipe on my husband’s car fell out from the bottom of the car, so it was dragging along the ground as he drove, causing sparks to fly out. So there’s that.
Luckily, there was no stress when it came to what was for dinner in the middle of all that chaos.
Getting back into Trim Healthy Mama fully after the holidays, and ensuring that I get more salad, sippers and kefir has made me feel really good, so I’m planning to keep up with that this week.
I had forgotten about the fat-burning vanilla iced tea in the new Trim Healthy Table book, so I enjoyed that a couple of times this week, along with the Good Girl Moonshine, and the new Boost Juice that the sisters featured on their Facebook page. (It’s so good!)
As usual, my menu plan is Trim Healthy Mama-friendly. If you aren’t familiar with Trim Healthy Mama, head over to read all about how I became a Trim Healthy Mama and lost 35 pounds in 7 months.
