 I haven't made a menu these last few crazy weeks,
but I am hoping to stick to a schedule!
Who knows though, Joe has off the whole
weekend and we may be spontaneous!
ps. I decided I will log my daily workouts under the "healthy" tab,
if you're so inclined to see what I am up to workout wise. 
I'm hoping this holds me responsible and perhaps will inspire you to sweat a little too!
Check out my TASTY giveaway tomorrow! YAY!

    Avocado chicken parm sounds delish! I've been loving avocados & making guacamole lately! I want to start making a different recipe every night, or at least a few different nights a week :)
