This week has hit me pretty hard – I’ve had A LOT of emotional and physical ups and downs. I’ve been struggling to get my binge eating under control again and I’ve had next to no motivation to do anything at all.

But I think I’m getting into an upswing groove. I cleaned my desk off today (wiped it down and everything!), got some of the office picked up and got next months’ meal plan all sorted out. I have even managed to work out every single day and found that I can stream Botched for free. It’s the little things, ya’ll. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I technically only meal plan for a family breakfast on Sundays โ€“ the rest of the week is leftovers or other regular breakfast food (ie: bagels, cereal, pop tarts, etc.) We do weekly meal prep for lunches on Sundays โ€“ enough for five weekday lunches for two adults. Recipes marked with an asterik are recipes that I have made before and my family has deemed delicious! ๐Ÿ™‚

My days start around 6am in quarantine – normally they would start at 4:45am, but things haven’t been normal for weeks now. Elias wakes up shortly thereafter and from the moment his little eyes are open, he is ready to go. He has my early bird tendencies with his dads’ notorious high energy and talent for fun.
