This Week The Plan

It is official... I now start my week on Tuesday... no more apologizing for running late. There is no late in a continuum of time and space.

This past week actually turned out pretty good. I failed less and achieved more. I lowered my standards and actually met most of my goals.

Meal Planning: I did follow my plans but had to throw out the 2 lbs of tilapia.. since I kept forgetting that I had no cornflakes and then it went bad. Ooops. I also didn't make pork sandwiches, we had leftover pizza... hey sometimes I have a life! Back off!

Exercise: For awhile there I thought I had pretty much shot my goals straight into the crapper but miraculously I actually decided that I was going to suck it up and stop sabotaging. I ended up EXCEEDING my cardio goals and I did do one pilates workout. I have finally figured out why I have trouble with the pilates... for 3.5 years I went to a trainer 2x a week... and so even though I loved it (and do love it!) there is a mental component to doing it on my own...of having to be constantly *present* and think "what's next" the whole time. Jeesh no wonder I always put it off.. the treadmill is automatic.. the pilates couldn't be more opposite of that. And seriously by the end of the day I just don't have any mental energy left to expend. But I'm trying... and I'm going to stick with one pilates workout a week until I think I have mastered this goal before I move on.

Cleaning: I vacuumed. This week I will do laundry on Tuesday & Wednesday and vacuum on Thursday.


This Week's Menu:

Monday: Chicken Pie and Chicken Soup (yeah I know it was redundant)

Tuesday: Pork Tenderloin, green beans & rice

Wednesday: Kid F & Mr F date night

Thursday: Meatballs, spaghetti & broccoli

Friday: Pizza Night

Saturday: Chicken Chili & cornbread

Sunday: Meatball Subs & salad

Hey don't say lowered expectations, say realistic expectations.

Speaking of plans, now that I have one pair of pants that fits (not counting the drawstring elastic shorts), it's time to count calories. I have to lose 15 lbs before our cruise or I won't have a wardrobe. I'm shooting for 1800/day and I only got to 1700 or so yesterday.

maybe one of those pilates videos might help. my sister has the windsor ones, and they are pretty good.

before our cruise

How long have you got?
Have you gone to Calorie Count Plus? They've got the counts for a lot of foods.
And I know you've been through all this before.. but I find tallying my calories before I eat dinner helps me to plan my night eating out before I make a mistake.

Interestingly enough I actually have a DVD that came with my reformer... somtimes it takes someone else to point out the obvious. thanks!

Hey, I'm eating your chicken fajitas. They're really good. Now these, I could eat every goddamn day. I love sauteed peppers, I could eat them all by themselves for a meal. I did as you suggested and tripled the spice mixture and put it in a shaker.
