New Beginnings!

I am so excited to post this first blog of the 30 day Dr. Ian Meal Plan (email if you want this, it's a PDF file), that I can hardly contain myself!!! We (my husband and I) have officially had our meal plan conference (he doesn't like to call it a diet, it makes him feel too contricted). The allowed snack list (see below, it's incredible) has been posted to the refrigerator, along with an enlarged version of the DAY 1 MENU. Whenever the meal plan says SNACK, you can select one item from the list. There are usually 2 snacks per day. So excited!!!

As a side note, I won't even talk about what I ate this weekend. Let's just say it was Valentine's Day weekend and my boo spoiled me with love AND food. And just a hint as to the ridiculous mayhem we participated in, it included strawberries dipped in cheese cake and THEN dipped in chocolate, as well as a Snickers Ice Cream cake! It was just pure craziness! They were DELICIOUS! But with that said, now it is to the business at hand and it could not be sweeter to do this with my hubby!
