Please excuse the terrible quality iPhone pictures, 

sometimes you just gotta work with what you got!

This outfit was worn a little over a week ago when Kyle and I were in San Antonio.
Jeans: Nordstrom (similar)

I could not be any happier that it’s FRIDAY!
Kyle has been out of town for work ALL week and I absolutely hate it when he’s gone.
But he’s COMING HOMEEE! Thank God, he owes me a super hot date night soon.

Charley and I have really really missed him.
She is SUCH a daddys girl, it’s ridiculous.

So, on another note.
I’m currently on a health kick,
“currently” meaning I decided today I’m going on a health kick.
I may have tacked on a few pounds since getting married and I may
barely ever go to the gym anymore…This needs to change.
And it needs to change immediately.

I think my main problem is dinner, It seems like the only easy week night dinners
I make are completely full of fattening ingredients.
All of the healthy recipes I find are just too much work.
So my question for you is…
What are some of your favorite, EASY, and healthy week night meals?!

I’m begging for your help…

xoxo, Monica

    Loving your outfit! So being recently married myself I've totally been struggling with the same thing, healthy (pretty easy) dinners! I basically live on Pinterest these days.. One of my definite go-to's is turkey/quinoa stuffed peppers! Sprinkling a little cheese on top totally distracts the fact that it's actually super healthy & packed with protein. The husband LOVES especially when I make some guacamole to go with! Here's the recipe I follow:
    Hope you guys enjoy!

    I kind of hate cooking. So a lot of those "quick easy" recipes tend to be like you said, totally fattening. To help battle it (and to squash the "oh there's nothing here let's go out" monster), I make a batch of boneless skinless chicken breasts on Sundays (salt, pepper, garlic powder & Some Tony's all seasoning). That way we have a protein already made that can be thrown into pasta (steam broccoli in a bag, noodles, chicken, mushrooms, whatevs) or make into a quesadilla or as the hubs does throw into a salad! Not all of those are the healthiest options ever but when you've been cooking constantly with heavy creams and cream cheese, this is a pretty good alternative!

    Cob Salad with some kind of chicken for added protein. 🙂
