Menu Plan Monday: April 13-20, 2014



Join us for Menu Plan Monday at I'm An Organizing Junkie.
 
So my first full week back at work is officially in the books.  It has been difficult trying to figure out how to eat healthy while away from the house has been a little bit of trial and error but at the same time I have done a great job at staying on the Trim Healthy Mama plan.  My only problem?  Supper!  By the time dinner rolls around at 6:30 PM, I have been up since 5 AM, worked an 8 hour shift, and am exhausted.  That is why pizza sounded wonderful to me last Monday!  We  already have to eat out way more than we should because of our busy schedule and that is something that I need to work on.
 
Here's what I have planned for us this week:

Life around the Modern Day Mom house is crazy any day of the week but here lately that craziness has been amped up a little bit not only are we a homeschooling family with kids in multiple sports but I have been attending college full-time with 18 credit hours this semester, on top of that I have accepted a full-time job in a lawyer's office and my husband began taking a college class of his own this month.  Needless to say we are a busy family who wants to eat healthy but need quick and easy right now!
