Last time I wrote I mentioned that I'd tell you more about the Atkins40 plan. Traditionally when you start the Atkins program you start off with 20 net carbohydrates per day, but on the new Atkins40 program you are allowed to eat 40 net carbohydrates per day for the ENTIRE time you are on the diet.
On Atkins40 you are supposed to eat roughly:
100 grams protein
40 grams carbohydrates
Adequate amounts of healthy fats
These are just guidelines for the average adult. You might have to adjust slightly to meet your own dietary needs.
This week I returned to work full-time outside of the home. My life has been crazy busy.
As I'm working on tweeking my schedule, it's been so nice to be able to just grab a frozen Atkins meal for lunch and be on my merry way!
But Atkins was kind enough to send me a weekly meal plan!! Can you guess what I'll be doing this weekend??
YES! That's right! I'll be meal prepping and getting everything all set up for next week!
I'm super excited to be back at work, and have adjusted so many aspects of my schedule. Just a few more tweaks and it will all be awesome!!

For lack of a better title, I decided to just cut right to the chase.
My 10yo daughter won a pretty big art contest in her little world.
About a month ago she came home with a note from her school that they were holding the Lake Myrtle Elementary School yearbook cover contest.
The kids were encouraged to draw a photo with the theme "Life Around the Lake." Haley's school mascot is a turtle. The winner of the contest would have their artwork printed on the COVER of EVERY 2014-2015 LMES yearbook.
