What’s for Dinner? {Week of May 1}

What's for dinner this week I've got a weeks worth of easy, healthy meal planning ideas for the whole family to enjoy.  happyfitmama.com

Holy moley – how is it May 1st?!?!

Is anyone else blown away by this as much as me? Wasn’t it just March? What happened to April? What’s with all the questions?

Seriously. Time needs to s-l-o-w down. Before I know it I’ll be exclaiming – How is it September 1st?

So what’s been going on this weekend?

Saturday was a full day of running, gymnastics, baseball, baking and enjoying the sunshine. Thank goodness for sunshine and blue skies. It really makes all the difference in my mood. I may be freezing but at least the sun is there to warm me up. When I ran in the morning, it was only 33 degrees. Whenever I was in the shade, I froze. I purposely went a route that had the max amount of sunshine and hills. Oh so many hills. My right glute is feeling it too. Whenever I was sitting, I was sitting on a lacrosse ball. Ouch. Thankfully, I have a massage scheduled for this week to nip it in the bud or butt. :)

Today is supposed to be cloudy and raining. I’m not sure what our plans for the day are other than I need my yoga fix (I haven’t been all week) and a short run.

Hey friends!

I hope you are having an excellent weekend. Ours kicked off with a full Saturday morning. I did a quick run, went to yoga, came back home to quickly shower and then took my daughter to gymnastics. After that, went back home to pick up my son and Ron for baseball. So much for a lazy Saturday morning!

During my run, I was trying really hard to remember what I did on Saturday morning’s before I had kids. I’m not one to sleep in so I know I didn’t do that. Go to the gym? Shop? Clean the house? Watch movies and stay in my PJ’s all day? I seriously can not remember. It must not have been too exciting if I can’t remember. Regardless, I wouldn’t change it for the world.

It’s meal planning Sunday. Time to plan out what’s for dinner this week. The kids are on school vacation this week so things are a little off for meals. We are doing a little getaway so it will be a nice break from having to plan every meal. I’m getting bored with my food lately so I need to scour Pinterest for more yummy recipes. Any recommendations?

Sunday: Grilled maple salmon + veggies

Monday: Salsa Verde Chicken Enchilada

Tuesday: out

Wednesday: out

Thursday: out

Friday: Ron’s homemade pizza

Saturday: Garlic Dill Salmon + Brussels Sprouts

Hey friends!

We are enjoying an absolutely lovely spring weekend here in New Hampshire. The sun is shining. The sky is blue. And the temps are warming up. We spent the majority of yesterday outside in the fresh air. It felt so good to not be absolutely freezing. Well at least we warmed up after freezing out butts off at opening day ceremonies for my son’s baseball team. Sitting on a metal bleacher seat when it’s 40 degrees and the wind is blowing is not good. Not good at all.

We spent the afternoon cleaning up the yard. It’s amazing how much stuff you can find in the yard after the winter. And when I mean stuff, I mean the kid’s junk that they lose. Oh and I had my first tick of the season. Thankfully, it was NOT stuck on me. I still have the creepy crawlies from it.

Now that the yard is cleaned up, hopefully we can have a little fun today. Maybe a hike? I’m itching to get out there.
