not my lowest sodium meal ever.....

 A crock pot, some stew meat, a can of cream of celery soup and an envelope of onion soup mix.

8 hours later, dinner is ready.

this and that and 30 day challenge 2

 January and February are not only speeding by but are also kicking my butt.  I've returned to working in the office part time and having to get up and attempt to look presentable, get out of the house and be gone all day AND be around <shudder> people all day, THEN go home and make dinner and get ready to do it all over again is.... a lot.

I'm tired, stressed, sad..... lots of stuff.  And lots of stuff has had to fall to the side - like meal planning and trying to be healthy and doing anything after 8 at night.

We've ordered Hello Fresh boxes for the past 3 weeks to get through the weeks but this week coming up we bravely decided to plan our own meals but have been ignoring the actual planning so far.  Last week I made the chicken and spinach curry above and we ate the whole thing and raved about it.

Don't ask for the recipe though.

I can share the recipe for the most delicious garlic soup I made last weekend.  I've been very drawn to brothy soups lately.  It's all I want.  


Another thing that is all I want is this pico de gallo from Costco.  SO spicy and SO good.  We are going through these quickly because of me.

You may recall that Decembers 30 day challenge was to drink more water.  It's going...not great.  But I'm trying.  I feel like this all the time

And I will keep trying.

January's 30 day challenge was journaling.    I'm dong a combo of journaling and habit tracking.  It was going pretty good until I went back to work and now it's just another thing I'm not doing consistently.  But again - trying.

When February arrived it did not even occur to me to think of picking a new challenge.  Maybe next month.

Lastly, I'm sad to share that the book club I joined has disbanded already.  I am pretty bummed because I really was enjoying it, but it was not meant to be I guess.  But the book club for 1 keeps rolling on.

Happy Sunday
