MIMM + Chicken & Fruit Salad

It’s a great day to MIMM it up!!  As always, a big thank you to Katie for hosting! Be sure to check out her blog, Healthy Diva Eats, full of awesome finds, yummy recipes, and her progress on her little Rockstar!

Maravilloso is…

In keeping with the festive Cinco de Mayo celebrations, Tim and I made Sweet Potato Enchiladas courtesy of Lauren from Healthy. Delicious. To say that these were muy bueno would be an understatement!  Both Tim and I enjoyed them, and they re-heated well for lunch today, as Lauren mentioned that they would.  Be sure to check out all of her recipes!  They all look really great, but this was the first one I’ve tried, and I am a fan!!  🙂

Yes, it was that bad!  You would think that the warm weather would be motivating, but I was more productive when it was the dead of winter!  A bit screwy and backwards if you ask me…oh well, I just have to keep attacking it one day at a time!

Marvelous is…

Getting back to calorie counting, today and meeting my calorie intake the first day back!
