Weekly Menu Plan, National Eating Disorders Awareness Week & More

This week is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week.  I will always do what I can to get the word out about eating disorders and how dangerous they can be.  After suffering from anorexia as a teen, I want to do what I can to help others that may be in the same position.   

Did you know?
"Most fashion models are thinner than 98% of American women (Smolak, 1996)."

That alone is enough to make any young girl (or guy) want to be thinner.  It is a very, very slippery slope.  Instead of trying to be someone else, celebrate you. You are beautiful just the way you are.   I am a huge supporter of Operation Beautiful for this very reason.   Caitlyn has a few stories up today in recognition of NEDA week, one of them is mine.  Be sure to check it out here. 

If you know anyone that may be suffering from an eating disorder, please don’t brush it under the rug.  If you aren’t sure what to do or how to approach the person, please seek help in doing so.  There are so many resources out there.

I think I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel with this darn head cold.  Good Lord!  It has been 2 weeks!  The snot just keeps on coming.  Who knew that one person could produce so much mucous?!  Enough about that, let’s move along to the week ahead.  Jon and his JV hockey team won the Division Championship and are headed to states!  This is huge for this team, as it is the first year our HS has had a JV team!  I hope they have a successful weekend!

I’ll be lucky to get the laundry done!  LOL!  I hope to make some cookies and/or muffins of some sort.  Not sure what yet.
