January is pretty awesome, if you ask me; and so far, it’s even better this year because we have had to deal with too many days of the obnoxious, freezing-cold temperatures (*knock on wood*).
Not only does January bring a fresh start to a new year, but it’s also my anniversary month, my birthday month (3 weeks away, not that I’m counting or anything), and the birthday month of some pretty other awesome gals, including Ms. Alyssa who celebrated yesterday, and my bestest, Heather, today!

Happy 28th Birthday, Nutjob!
One of the things I love about Mondays is the fact that I get to eat lunch at home. I absolutely love having the luxury of eating lunch at home once a week; everything just seems to taste fresher and I can decide right then and there what I want. No need for pre-planning.
Today’s lunch was definitely a winner. I made myself a turkey wrap using 3 slices of low-sodium deli turkey, hummus, spinach, tomatoes, and a bread & butter pickle (of course!) on a LaTortilla High Fiber Whole Wheat tortilla. The LaTortilla Factory brand of tortillas is by far my favorite. They’re always so fresh, not loaded in calories like many other brands are, and there’s a ton of different flavors, too.
On the side, I added some baby carrots and the rest of the plum tomato that I had sliced up for my wrap.
I ate lunch while watching the afternoon news and reading through my latest issue of Real Simple.
Ten ideas for easy breakfasts, huh? I’m interested!
There were definitely a few on the list that caught my eye, so don’t be surprised if you see them popping up around these parts soon.
I think I’m in the mood to make soup tonight for dinner. Hopefully that can still be counted as part of my plan…I’ve got my first check-in with Jim tonight, so we’ll see how it goes!
Question for the Afternoon:
How do you feel about January? Love it? Hate it? Could care less?
Where are the rest of my fellow January birthday friends?!?! Holla!
