Menu Planning Monday...round 2!

Its 2:58 pm and I feel as though it is 2:58am!!! I suppose that is what happens when you start your day at 5am at the gym. Gretchen says it takes doing something for 21 days straight for it to become a habit so hopefully it will get easier.....I'm thinking next time we pick a habit its not something that has to be done at 5AM G...ya got that G!! . Alot has been accomplished and the oven is preheating for dinner so all is not least not yet anyway :)
