For this week ~

Wednesday - Polenta with roasted broccoli, italian sausage, and sautéed onion
Thursday - Mashed roasted sweet potatoes (leftover from Tuesday), with fish
Friday - Pizza - italian sausage/onion (leftover from Wednesday), mozzarella, grated piave cheese and a side green salad
This morning we went on a family run (in flurries) and dealt with the same slushy/snowy path as I did yesterday. I will say a few things: The Bob is worth it's weight in gold - that thing flies over piled up snow and works it effortlessly over slush. I do have to watch that I don't get sprayed by the slop shooting off the spinning wheels, but otherwise it rolls like a dream. Also, no one in Chicago seems to think we are crazy for running in these conditions. People smile and wave just like they do when it's 70 and sunny. I love that! Tough souls live here - I am one of them. And lastly, Baby loves it. She's in there, all bundled up, smiling and clapping her mitten-clad hands to "happy and you know it." She doesn't miss a beat (literally).
After our run today, we hung at our local coffee shop - Baby snacked on her apple and cheddar bunnies and let us sip our coffees in peace. It was a stellar arrangement. Sometimes, she flat out rocks ;)
I'll have a post re: Ab Month soon - so far I'm 100%.
